Fabulous Finds or Merely Mediocre?

Sometimes while hunting for vintage treasures, if I'm not striking gold, I can tend to search harder. As if I absolutely must find something to buy. Subconsciously of course. It's like I start seeing things that I would ordinarily find average, as somehow special. Hmmm, if I tilt it just so, it really does have nice detail, and wait a minute, isn't that a bit of patina right there on the tip? Then of course, when I get home and have to make room in my inventory to fit one more thing, I suddenly can't see the beauty so c learly. Can anyone out there relate?

Here are some of the things I found on our B&B weekend. A couple of them I would call fabulous, a few let's just say fab-ish. Not bad for this time of year anyway. Some of these will be added to my shop as I find time. Feel free to inquire about any of them if there's something you need before then.

Ursula Mascaro slippers, Printers' Blocks spell PArIS, Silver Plate Pitcher, Old Gold Satin Ribbon, SEARS made in Japan Alarm Clock, Brass Victorian Hand Clip

Gargantuan (40 inches tall!)Florist Basket
and Quaker Lace Tablecloth

Great Old Hat Form, more Slippers, more Printers' Blocks, Pillow Fight Silhouette, Tiny Brass Mirror Frame

Giant Wardrobe Trunk ~ I've decided to keep.

I guess for now I can stuff a few more things in my big trunk :).

You have some awesome treasures there, but I know exactly what you are saying. Just today, I went to the thrift store and had 4 items in my basket, but put them all back! What I do now, is stay in the store at least 30 minutes with the "maybes" in my cart. Sometimes they come home with me, sometimes they don't. I don't buy something just to buy something. I used to buy it all, but no more. :)

I agree! It's ALL fab! LOVE the trunk!

You've given me the idea to turn one of my large trunks on end and see if it will look good that way!

LOVE the printer's blocks!! I got two like your's in "X" and "O" around Valentine's Day...but they're cute all year long...

Thanks for sharing!
