Show and Tell Treasures....



Found some goodies over the weekend..Of course I will probably keep at least 1 or 2 things for myself. That's the hardest part about this biz...letting go.
(For a closer look, you can click on the photos to enlarge)


The best find of the day was this little number. I was told by the seller that is was an antique chromolithograph. I knew it was something special when two men were breathing down my neck waiting for me to put it down. Other finds included 4 Paris fashion framed prints in the old butter yellow frames, 2 tarnished silver trays which make great displays for sea shells and for vintage ornaments at Christmas time. A vintage framed needlepoint in the best colors I've ever seen, a darling shabby stool with it's old PINK paint, a wall sconce, a yellow ware mixing bowl, pretty fabric and 40 old picks with tiny balls that look like mercury glass! I loved the pearl ones but there were more silver..of course! Does anyone know what these were for? These will be perfect for adding to my ornament wreath I plan to make for Christmas. Into the drawer they go!



Until my next shopping trip...

Wow! you did really well Nancy! I love everything you got. I'm heading out in about a 1/2 hour for a one day estate sale. Kind of strange on a Wednesday, I hope I do as well as you!
