My goodness, you do have Christmas in July! When we were in PDX it was never out of the 80s! Hope you have AC! Come visit MN and I'll keep you cool; we moved to a small college town south of the Metro (Northfield) and love historic homes and charm!!


Love those crepe paper flowers! I have my own very old and sad birthday candle like that. It is kind of, um, bent - and ran out of years many years ago - LOL!


Great stuff!
I would love to find some vintage ornaments, especially pink or pastels! I make ornie wreaths with them. I have some of those hanging chip clips, they come in handy for shows!
Happy Saturday my friend! karen...


Yay for sales & fun stuff! Boo for the stupid weather :-(

I can't believe I am actually looking forward to 80 degree weather.

Try and stay cool!



I love old grocery store things - all those things would have been right up my alley. The metal signs (the garden stakes) would have had a price sign on then. The boxes - like apple boxes would have set inside the top of the box, then the tab stuck down in between the two layers of the boxes. My dad was a produce manager for 35+ years. I have several of the individual clip strips and I use them in all booths and shows. Fun finds!

The birthday candle says Tot n Teen. My grandmother worked at a clothing store call that when I was in middle school. The store was apparently part of a chain because in college in another town, I worked part time at Tot n Teen. I love all the goodies you found.

Lots of fantastic rescues! I'm smitten with that egg-shaped decorative box. Easter is a hard holiday lately for me to find. I can't believe your temps. I hope your studio has air conditioning!

Wonderful finds! I can't even pick out a favorite this time. It is good to get to a sale after a while of not going, isn't it?

Melissa's Antiques

Super finds! Love the chip clips and the stand. Perfect items for shows or an antique booth display.
