Thanksgiving Weekend Finds

Hey guys!  Hope you all had a wonderful (holiday - for my US friends) weekend!  I was lucky enough to get a 4 day weekend.  I have NEVER been one for Black Friday shopping, bu I did attend an auction... which is my kind of Black Friday sale!  I was also lucky enough to attend an auction on (Small Business) Saturday.  It was the perfect way to spend the weekend, as it will probably be my last vintage hunting for 2015.  My new hubby and I will be on our honeymoon for 3 weeks over Christmas and New Year's Eve... so I'll throw this out here now: Happy Holidays to everyone out there in blogland!

 Anyways, so far I've gotten photos of the stuff I've taken to the booth.  I still have more items to clean up and lots of ephemera to go through!  I hope to get pictures of them soon.  So here we go with what I've got so far...



I love buying things in bulk!



If these candy boxes don't sell, I won't be sad.



I love this cute little stool!



I got these vintage beer cans for free.  Thought I'd give it a shot and try selling them.


The signs are sweet - the letters are glittery gold!


I sell quite a bit of kitchen utensils.


The s&p shakers are some of my favorites.  The cookie cutters on the original package are awesome



I bought this clock for my kitchen, hoping it would work.  It didn't and I have no idea how to rewire a clock.  So I put it in the booth, hoping someone else will give it a good home.


The books are ledgers from a doctor's office from the 1930s-1940s.  I saved back one that was falling apart.  If the cute midcentury bathroom shelf doesn't sell quickly, I'll be hanging it up to display stuff on.

That's it for this week!

The Holidays are Here!

Hello all!  So, I guess it's officially holiday season now that Halloween is over.  Everywhere I go is decked in red and green and twinkling lights.  You didn't think I'd be the one exception, did you?  My favorite holiday is almost upon us!

I didn't do any shopping this weekend.  In fact, mom just helped me tidy up my office/storage room on Sunday.  I can actually get in and out of it now!  Sunday we brought in several totes full of Christmas stuff that I've been saving and started decorating my booth for the holidays.  I still have much more to add.  It has been quite awhile since I've shown you any pictures of the booth (5 months!).  So today I am here to do that.  

I first broadcasted a tour of my booth via Periscope. I've also shared it on Facebook and Instagram.  Sorry the blog is always the last to be updated.  You guys should follow me on these other platforms for more instantaneous fun!  But, alas, here's the pictures I promised... and I'll let them do all the talking.







































 That's it for this week!
