New Booth Display + Sunday Funday Finds

Saturday was dealer day at my antique mall, and it was pretty successful.  It was fun to interact with customers - many of whom were repeat buyers from my booth.  There were a lot of teenagers buying vintage, which really made me happy.  There's hope that the next generation will still care about this "stuff" as much as I do!

I added one new display to my booth before customers came in on Saturday.  I made it in less than 30 minutes with stuff from my garage.


My goal is to maximize my booth space as much as possible.  I have some bare wall space I need to fill!

Sunday I took my Monday MBA class readings with my to an auction.  I was reading, highlighting away, and bidding on more goodies.  Several other auction goers asked me how I was able to focus with the auctioneer going a mile a minute.  I guess I've never been able to focus when it is dead quiet.  I got my reading finished, got a few things, and scooted out the door to a local antique mall.  I picked up a few things there, as well!  Oh yeah, I guess a few of these pieces were random goodwill outlet finds that I forgot I had bought...

The non-holiday items.  The best of these finds: the pink
and white 33 record case.  I will never part with it!

Kitchen scale, rolling pin, partial jar of buttons, and made
in Japan beer stein.

Pennant, enamelware bowl, Argus Pre-Viewer, and this cool
milk glasses bead purse.

Some Griffith's spice jars, 2 Hoosier cabinet jars, 2 biscuit
cutters, and some vintage Milton Bradley bingo cards!

Didn't think I'd come home without vintage Christmas, did
you?  Ceramic tree (works!), 1968 Empire Santa blow mold,
and...

very pretty ornaments!

Well, I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I'm going to hit the hay!

  1. That is such a good idea with the postcards! I look for particular postcards & when there is a huge box, I just don't have the time.
