Sort of a long break, and two BIG announcements

Hi everybody!  Sorry I took kind of a break from blogging for several days.  It was my birthday last week, and my beloved Cardinals made the post-season, and I'm gearing up for something exciting this coming weekend, plus I've worked out a very special way to treat my customers well, both of which I'll tell you about in a minute!  All in all, I've been a bit distracted, but I've still been thrifting, and keeping booth 78 at Kenrick Antique Mall stocked and enjoying the gorgeous Fall, just failing to document any of it for posterity.  Here are the only pics I've remembered to take in the last week and a half, both of last week's additions to the booth:

First, a fabulous new addition to the Halloween costume options I've amassed:

Can't have only female prombies, can we?  So if you want to be
the zombie prom king of 1976, you know where to go!

And in the corner there above you might have noticed a whole bunch of bright colors.  I picked up this great afghan recently and had to get it into the shop - it's so fun!:

Gorgeous, well made chevron afghan

Seriously, I've completely failed to take pictures of anything else I had going.  Bad me!  But now it's time for a couple of announcements.  First:

This Saturday I'll be participating in the parking lot sale at the Green Shag Market!  

From 9:00 - 3:00 Saturday, 10/20, there will be a bunch of vendors of antique, vintage and collectible awesomeness in the autumn sunshine in the parking lot at the Green Shag Market at 5733 Manchester in St Louis City.  The location is easy enough to get to, but not the most obvious to spot on your first visit, so map it, and know that it's a bit East of where Manchester goes under Hampton, on the North side of the street.  Don't miss it, it's going to be great!  I'll have a parking-lot sized space full of vintage goodies, and tons of fun!

The second big announcement is:

2ndhand Moon now offers Speakeasy Deals!

What's that, you may ask?  Well, I can imagine why, since I made it up.  Here's how it works:

1.  Buy treasures at 2ndhand Moon - booth 78 at Kenrick Antique Mall (or this Saturday only, in the parking lot at the Green Shag Market!).
2. Snap a pic of your treasures in their new environment: adorning your home or your body or your life in some other way.
3. Post said pic and help a sister out with a bit of free advertising - tag and tout 2ndhand Moon on Facebook.
4. I'll private message you (on Facebook) a unique one-time secret password (that's the speakeasy part).
5. Shop 2ndhand Moon again, and at the checkout, give them a wink and your password for booth 78, and you'll be allowed into the secret world of special discounts - a percentage off the item of your choice!
6. Lather, rinse repeat - just like any speakeasy, regulars will be rewarded for their patronage.

Discount applies to one item of your choice from booth 78.  Past purchases can be posted, but one post per item, obviously, and one per person per week, please.

And even though I've only shared 2 of my finds, I'm linking up with Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday.
