Hello! I hope your week is off to a good start! I'm just popping in to share a few more of my finds from the hwy 127 sale. I really found so many great things this year, things for my shop, things for crafting, things for my home, and things for gifts! It was probably my most successful year yet! Even my Mr. found some things, which is great because I always feel a bit guilty when he spends all week driving us around, shopping with me, carrying stuff, and dealing with the heat, and then not find anything for himself! (though, I think he goes a bit too fast and misses things)
Anyway, it was a good year, and I haven't even unpacked everything yet! These are just a few of the things that I have unpacked so far. I have a small collection of vintage wedding cake toppers, and I usually display them in my home during the months of February (for Valentine's day) and September (our anniversary month) My favorites are always the chalk couples, and this was no exception. The gal selling it also gave me a a great deal on it because the bride and groom had come loose from the bottom. Nothing a little glue can't fix though, right? See the background in the photo? That's a super sweet vintage lampshade I found also. I think it will look darling on a milkglass lamp.
I found quite a few vintage linens, and if you have been around here for long, you know I'm pretty much a sucker for any embroidered southern belle. Look at those pillow cases! Such pretty work, and they had never been used, so they're perfect. The lavender and pink pillow cases were also unused, and gorgeous!
I also have quite a collection of vintage dolls, mostly the smaller Nancy Ann dolls, but occasionally I will buy a baby doll if they're as sweet as this one. And like Frank from the American Pickers, I was the "bundler" at this stop. I was able to get the sweet vintage doll and the vintage silk lampshade below for $20 together!
The next four days are going to be spent reorganizing (and cleaning) my messy studio. So as I get that done, I will also unpack more of my finds to share with you. Wish me luck on the studio thing, will you? I am bound and determined to get my studio as user friendly as possible. I have a beautiful studio, but find myself in my husband's "mancave", on the couch, in front of the tv, and using a portable craft table to work more often than I would like, so I am definitely on a mission to get my space working properly.
Be back soon! xo, Cerri
