We were traveling over the weekend to celebrate with my husbands family and had a wonderful Mother's Day celebration with his mom. On the long drive we stopped in at a few second hand and vintage shops on the way. I'm sharing a few photos of some items I picked up. Most will end up in my shop, but I may have to squirrel away a few to enjoy for myself first!
I was using my new smart-phone and have figured out that it must be smarter than me, because it occasionally just starts taking pictures on it's own. Pardon a few are a bit blurry, I am still trying to get the hang of the thing.
First off, I found this cute Fuzzy Wuzzy Bear book in a paper-back version. I couldn't pass up the cute illustrations. I'll share some of them later on.
I also found a Billy Bunny book published by the Vogard company which also published the Raggedy Ann books back in the 1920's. Next up is a cute book called Little Elephants Christmas (1944) and another book with some great illustrations called A Home for Turkey Gobbler.
Here are some darling pottery pieces!
I found dogs in boats, dogs with bows and a Scotty dog salt shaker.
I also found pigs, teacups and of course some deer!
The planter above is a darling version of Bambi! Unfortunately, it has a small chip on one ear. Otherwise it is stunning with the gold application! The planter is on top of a fabulous vintage table cloth with pink roses.
I fell in love with this cute little Raccoon planter!
.....And how could I pass up this charming Elf with his cart??
Here is another shot of some of my fresh picks! The gigantic peanut with the squirrel on top was a great find, so darned cute! The squirrel to the left matches the squirrel on top the nut!
Below are a few photos of one of the most organized antique shops I have ever seen. There is never a speck of dust on anything! I can't imagine how she keeps it up. It is a very old fashioned store and she does not use the internet, so the only way to buy is in person. She is located in South Dakota, if you would like further information you can contact me. The owner's are very quirky but sweet.
Oodles of Pyrex and glassware.
Some fabulous Christmas Pyrex. Sorry for the blurrr.
I love the fruit pattern Pyrex, but I just don't have the room for it!
This was only a small part of the store, we were in a hurry so
I had to get back to my shopping!
I hope you all have been having a wonderful week and that your weather has also been Spring-like! Soon I should have some flowers to share, things are just getting started around here. For now, I will be organizing and photographing some of these items to list in my shop.
See you soon!
