|Sneak peak at the new shower!|
We haven't been doing much of the actual work, but let me tell you that trying to find all the crap that goes into the bathroom has been a wicked pain in my rear. Anyway, we are about 60% done and the work is moving fast, so I really have absolutely nothing to complain about.
And things have been selling fast at my booth, mainly Pyrex. People are loving it right now, so I have been working hard to keep it stocked up. For now I will be shifting my focus and thrifting a little less for small decorative items and more for Pyrex and functional housewares. That seems to be what it is moving right now. Plus I've got to start saving funds for Junk Bonanza in April! I'm getting so excited!
This Golden Branch casserole dish came with the strangest lid. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it the correct lid, or did a previous owner get a little nuts with some gold leaf and paint? Someone should really start a gold pattern only collection.. That would be so fancy and elegant!
This is a neat pattern that I had never seen before. I like how it can go into any kitchen and match since it is so neutral.
This is the first time I've seen a Shenandoah piece in good shape. I know it isn't a favorite among collectors, but I like it. Delicate and pretty.
I'm all about the functional items lately. Organizers don't have to be boring and ugly. This little brass turtle ring holder is a perfect example of that. It will organize your little odds and ends and look freaking adorable at the same time! Those are rings I made from my Grandmas vintage buttons. Aren't they cool?!
I'm a sucker for a vintage bag, and when I see one in good shape I have a hard time saying no. This bag is way, way, way too small for me and all my nonsense, so I listed it in the Etsy shop. It would make a great evening bag, something different from the standard black clutch.
I have found a lot of really neat vintage souvenir plates lately. Do any of you have a collection of them? Do you re-sellers find they sell well? The Mom displays a small collection in her bathroom and it looks so neat! It is a fun way to add color and flair to your space!
I'm going to work today on getting some stuff together for the booth and for my Etsy shop. I'm so thankful that all this is going so well, I really do love it! But before that I'm joining the parties at Apron Thrift Girl, Sir Thrift A Lot, Sumo's Sweet Stuff, Remnant, Young Heart Old Soul and A Living Space. Have a great week everyone!!!
