Vintage Goodness...

 Found six new, old stock dish towels at a thrift store. They still had original folds and labels. Labels are pictured along with a pic of one of the designs. There were three of this design and one of green onions. I only  purchased four, for which I am kicking myself now. There were two with corn on the cob I did not buy.

This is the label... love it!
 The Christopher Radko Czech Glass Garland at right was donated to my son's school, along with two other patterns.  This one sold on eBay for $99.99.  It is a discontinued pattern called "Nuts and Berries".  Proceeds went to Morning Star School of Orlando.
I've found plenty of vintage ornaments out junkin' and made both my daughters wreaths for the doors this past Christmas.  At left is a pic of one of them.

Hope you are enjoying a lovely Spring!

Vintage Enamelware... Dansk

I'm currently selling the pictured Vintage Dansk Kobenstyle yellow enamelware  on eBay.  Someone donated it to my son's school and I have listed it for them. They can bring a pretty nice price.  The piece at left has already sold for $45.99.  It holds approximately 5C, with a wooden handle, pour spout and lid. 

Here are some pics of other completed vintage enamelware items that have sold recently on eBay...

Hello Again...

Sorry to be MIA for so long.  Thought I had lost control of my domain name, but all is well.  I've enjoyed keeping up with my fellow vintage loving bloggers in the meantime!

In December of 2013 the antique market, where I rented space, closed it's doors. I've not rented any new space since then.  Life has thrown other things my way to deal with.  Maybe I will do vintage resaling again soon.  I do so love it.

Still doing a little thrifting, but my best thrifting pal, Hazel, moved out of state, so I'm on my own now.  Trying to just buy things I am crazy about, but even that is too much... which is how I got into
vintage resale in the first place. :)

Pictures shown are of my old space at College Park Antique Market.  Still keep in touch with the former owner, Kelly.  Maybe she'll open another store soon... hint, hint.

Thanks for stopping by and happy junkin'!

Happy New Year and Some Warm Vintage...

Wishing you all a Happy and Blessed New Year!

2014 holds new things for me.  The antique market in which I rented a booth has closed it's doors and my side of the garage is full of stock.  Decisions to be made as to whether to open another booth, have a yard sale, or both.

Black & Multi Granny Square Afghan
The afghan at right and below belonged to a friend's 104 year old mother in law who passed a few years ago.  Isn't it lovely?

Also below is a wooden biscuit box/crate from the 1800's that was hers.

Thanks for stopping by. Stay warm and safe.

Blessings,  Leah

Joyous Christmas Greetings!

Wishing you all a very Joyous Christmas Season!  Hope it is full of time spent with those you love, doing things you love in places you love!

Sorry I haven't posted much lately, but should have more time to do so.  The vintage shop where I rented space has closed :(  I may be looking for a new space, but decided to take a break for the holidays, as I have plenty of wondrous vintage stock and keep acquiring more. Pics are of a few recently purchased treasures.  The antique mercury glass ornaments are a friends.  I have been selling them online for her.
