My First Show!

I will be doing my first vintage show in less than a few weeks and to tell you that I am excited would be an understatement!

I have been as busy as a bee getting everything ready (washing, pressing, tagging) and trying to come up with some creative ideas for displaying all of my vintage items (ideas anyone?).

Will post more details (date, place, time) soon!

On Me, Oh My!

For the past several weeks I have been out scouting estate sales and since tomorrow is Saturday, once again I will be up bright and early, coffee in hand, heading to a few more.
I am amazed at what I have discovered! I picked up three very, very old quilts, a lovely light green chenille bedspread, and a vintage duvet cover (will try and post some pics soon...they are in the wash as I type this) and several vintage pillow case sets. I've also come across some wonderful vintage clothing-dresses and nighties, as well as jewelry and so much more! Oh! And I have an entire bin full of vintage fabrics. Oooolaaalaaa...
Can't wait to see what treasures I find tomorrow.

Flea Markets & Fun!

For the last few days of my vacation, my hubby and I headed up to Sandpoint, Idaho to spend a few days on the lake and to just enjoy this charming little town. To my surprise (and delight), the Local VFW was having their annual Rummage sale. The sale started at 6:oo my friend and I ventured out bright and early. I spent only $3.00 but I was able to find several vintage fabrics, two sets of vintage pillow cases, some kitchen linens, a charming teal blue lace doilie, and a few other treasures.
I haven't been to many of these types of sales but I have to say I am hooked!
