Hunting and Gathering and Wishing and Hoping
A few recent finds... The buttons and the yellow satin box are from the Monticello Antique Mall. I stopped over there last Saturday and took the official plunge by signing up on the waiting list for a small space. I love my little Etsy shop but I have to admit I am a little burned out on all the photographing and listing and STORING. I don't intend to give it up altogether but I would like to ratchet it back to just the smalls, like I started with. I don't know how long it will take or if I will even get a space but I have my fingers crossed!
The rest of the treasures are from my old reliable VOA. The bowl is Pyrex. The crows are because it is Halloween - LOL!
I found these awesome old skates pushed to the back in the sporting goods section and they had waited for me until they were on half price. I grabbed them before I even knew that so it was a happy surprise at the checkout!
I adore the old wooden hangers with words. Did you see the one in the photo up above? Magic and joy. I'll taken 'em!
These are a few of the recent favorite buttons.
The Pyrex bowl was dirty, as vintage finds often are. I figured I could just wash it and all would be well. Well, not so much... I have tried Magic Eraser, SOS, Goof Off and Bleach. NOTHING is budging this mark. Anyone have any ideas or I just donate it back??
