I have been searching for both items to sell in the new booth and for items to use for decoration.
These sheets of rusty tin were originally my idea for a sign, but then I thought of something else for them.
Quite the juxtaposition, isn't it?
A picnic basket and a pair of ice skates.
Very small skates with double blades for beginners.
I found an adult pair also - neither vintage, but they did not have to be for my project.
A beaded bird clip.
Two pairs vintage wool booties with satin ribbon ties.
A handmade pinafore - you must pin it on the child's clothes.
A stack of ruined linens saved by a wonderful thrift store employee who thought of me and hid them.
A huge "THANK YOU!"
Quite the pair of tipsy lamps.
Both rather tall.
The shades were dumped into the trash.
I despise those new light bulbs.
I think the brass one was originally an oil lamp. The harp is wired on.
The white one is so mid-century modern.
Remember the two red suitcases from last week?
So did a volunteer at another thrift who remembered I bought them and saved this train case that matches.
Pinned right inside - the key!
A stack of slacks hangers for the new booth - I use them for anything from linens to posters.
Two vanity trays.
I am hoping under the Victorian gift wrap paper there might be a vintage print.
Fingers are crossed!
An entire trash bag filled with sheers.
I will hang these in the booth.
A wooden box filled with vintage Christmas ornaments, a roll of masking paper, vintage chicks, and a trophy bowl.
The trophy was awarded in 1976 for
I am sure there is a story there.
I dearly love old stockings.
These two are not really old, but they look old.
I think that counts.
Though I would rather be really old, but not look old!
I have a surprise guest coming next week with not one, but two posts - Tuesday and Wednesday.
