My New Store: Antiques and Things

Hello Dearests,

I recently blogged that I resigned from my job to pursue my arts and crafts (and other things).  Well that other thing is opening a booth at one of the best antiques stores in Albuquerque:  Antiques and Things

Recently, I've been working on perfecting my displays.  I especially need to figure out how I'm going to display my long necklaces...meanwhile those can still be found in my Storenvy shop.
I volunteer at the store 4 days per month, usually on Sundays so come see me if you are out and about!

I must say that it has been really hard not to buy up everything that I like.  I'm pretty proud of myself for being so disciplined because there are sooooo many awesome items at great prices.  Honestly I don't know why anyone would ever buy anything new/mass produced when they can come into one of these stores and buy something that is great quality and unique, for either the same price or a fraction of the price! 

Here are some photos of my favorite items in the shop.

This Etagere is Amazing!

 What a cute vanity <3  I used to have one just like it when I was a teenager.

Lady head vases and bling

Cool old tools that still work

That's a neat way to display old photos

My upcycled tea party tiered plates

My upcycled cloches

This is a really cool way to display vintage rolling pins #winerack

My upcycled vintage file cases

This is so cool - a basket made out of old rulers.

I think this is for practicing roping?  Or maybe not.

I love the one on the left.  It is made out of gorgeous hard wood and super soft fur.

That is an excellent price for that Cookie Jar
