Sweet relief - it's done! Also, a few celebratory thrifts.

So my booth is now really, truly, 100% up and running.  All items actually priced now.  Here's my official "After" picture:

I left work at 5:00 PM on the dot and braved the snowy streets to get there as quick as was safe.  So I didn't have quite 45 minutes to work - closer to 30.  But I had, from memory, written out most of the tags on my lunch break (thanks clever Jason!) and made it out of there with 5 minutes to spare before their 6:00 closing time.  At which point I was still a little wired, so I stopped in next door at Value Village to unwind.  Which leads me to the thrifts I thrifted:

Cool little display shelf thingy.  Presumably for books,
like these of mine I placed upon it.  Like!

little ironing board with it's own tiny legs.  Came in it's
original plastic bag, which declared it the
"World's Best portable ironing board".

I love the sea-bird sort of beak on this little pitcher/tea pot.

I think when it's clean, the little mouse will be less creepy.  

What's cooler than some gold lamée flirtations?

Possibly these lenticular (I <3 that word) shoes.  Lenticular! Shoes!

I'm not sure this is vintage, but it's beautifully made.

Look at the gorgeous vintagey lining fabric - hand-stitched!

Oh - doing Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday again - such fun last time to see what people found, and you have to see the gorgeous lamps she got this time!


  1. Awesome finds! I love the book rack! I wish I also have an antique store booth. Looks fun to curate!

    1. Thanks! And that's exactly it - the most fun thing for me so far is creating little vignettes and telling stories with the random treasures I find. That's why I had to write A Tale of Two Coats last week, too:
