Several times a year I travel to the Low Country of South Carolina to go crawling with my niece, Leia.
A crawl is a full day of shopping for vintage and junk items that appeal to us. We start in Summerville and crawl to North Charleston and back to Summerville. Spring Crawl here!
It is truly grueling and often a dirty job, but someone has to save those treasures!
This is what met me when I opened her door.
A stack of windows!
Ten for me!
It would not be a true crawl without a trip to Mr. Durland's vintage store display warehouses. He informed us of the sad news that he is thinking of selling out and retiring.
I bought two boy feet and two lady feet - just because I needed something eclectic for the booth.
They do attract attention!
A stack of vintage sign frames - the last time I painted and put old images in them.
This time the customers wanted them left bare so that is what they got.
Signs of Vintage Photos post here.
I managed to find a bunch of baskets. I might have enough to last for a few months now. I have been saving back baskets to use for small item displays.
Loving this round wooden table It needs some work. I managed to sneak it in the house . It is hiding out in front of the fireplace. Chucks has not noticed it.
What does that say about my living room?
There is no living going on in there - just stacks of things waiting to be cleaned and taken to the store.
A vintage tree skirt made from one of those felt craft kits of the 60's and 70's.
And a red record album.
An album of Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer!
My share of the windows drying in the sun after being cleaned.
It's window world!
We found stacks of vintage books and three pretty saucers.
A ton of linens.
Some marshmallow snowmen ornaments. (Not real marshmallow - resin).
Cute little metal chair.
More of the linens.
That is a hand-pieced and embroidered baby quilt in front.
Leia has the eye of an eagle when on the hunt.
The Blue Crab festival tote is tattered and stained and worn and I think it would make a wonderful funky pillow.
In the back are some wildly patterned coverlets.
