Vintage Market

We had a lovely time on our trip. The weather was just perfect. I went shopping of course and picked up a lot of great stuff for Christmas. I also found this tray that kept letters for newspaper printing in it. It was in pretty bad shape but I painted it pink and lined the bottom with lots of old papers. I liked the way it turned out. I needed something BIG to hold all my embellishments because if I can't see it, I forget I have it. I have also been collecting some extra special vintage items I have not show you yet. I am going to open a section in my etsy shop called Vintage Market. It will have things like vintage baby clothes, frilly vintage clothes, books, big metal letters, and ,sewing boxes. I just don't know when to start listing them. Before or after Christmas? I'm super busy right now but, I wonder if people would like to buy this type of stuff for Christmas? If y'all have any thoughts I would love to hear it!

BEFORE Christmas my friend. I am quite certain people look for these sort of items for Christmas presents. It's also the busiest shopping days of the year.
Oh, and can I get a sneek peak? LOL :0)
Love all of your little art bits here. (you should check out the show and tell theme later today..) :0)
Glad you had fun!

Glad your trip was good.

You bet they would! I love buying stuff like that for friends and family.

Love your little box! I've got to find myself one of those - I'm totally an out-of-sight-out-of-mind gal.

Thanks for stopping by!
