I've been slacking!!! Slacking on blogging, slacking on commenting, slacking on thrifting - slacking on everything! Some of it is pure, unadulterated laziness, don't get me wrong. But most of my blog neglect is because we have been potty training The Little Dude for the past three weeks. I have been a bit preoccupied, to say the least. : )
All things considered, the booth got a little bit of love in the recent weeks. I got a really nice email from a customer last week. She was sweet enough to take time to tell me that she shopped at my booth when she could and I helped her finish her yellow Gooseberry set. She even said she loved my blog! Thanks so much Marianne. You made my day, that's for sure!
More bakelite! That light blue one on the left started out grubby and mustard colored. With lots of sanding and polishing it is back to it's lovely original light blue color.
I KNOW!!! Hahahaha! This thing is huge, and super obnoxious, but there was just no way it wasn't going home with me. The cephalopod lover in me wouldn't have it any other way.
The Husband didn't like his tangerine gimlet. Not a problem Not. A. Problem. : )
OHMYGOODNESS, OHMYGOODNESS, OHMYGOODNESS!!! These were in a bin at the thrift the other night. I saw the black and white and thought, "that can't be what I hope it is. Holy sh*t, it is!!!"Can you believe it?!
Mine! Mine! Mine! ; ) This little gem sang to me at the thrifts. It was magical...
This stack of bakelite bangles reminds me of a hamburger. I was overly amused by the resemblance all day.
My antique mall did a flea market in the parking lot a few weeks ago. It was fun, and a good learning experience, but I didn't sell as much as I hoped for. It was just meh.
~insert heavy breathing here~
Two of these sugar coated sugar pillows was all I could handle (even that was too much) but man, they sure were AWESOME!!!
Lets all have a moment silence please... Tragic, just tragic!
I did another market over the weekend that went much better than the previous one. It was in a fun touristy part of town behind some cute boutiques that I frequent. They have decided to do the market three more times this summer and I know I'll do at least one more.
Are any of you going to sell at or go to a few flea markets or vintage shows this summer?
So are you guys all on Instagram yet?! For me, it's the fastest way to share and keep up right now. Don't leave me hanging!!!
