My booth, WW Vintage, at In Retrospect - from January through May.
It was such a busy semester that I haven’t been blogging as much as I intended to. Between acting and crewing in shows, math, language and scenic shop classes, and trying to have a social life outside of that, I haven’t spent as much time talking about antiquing as much as I spend DOING the antiquing. So, hello!
I hope to post with more regularity now that I only have summer classes.
Thanks for all of the new followers. Happy hunting!
In Retrospect opened yesterday and I’ve sold some things already!
To celebrate, I.. bought more stuff.
Thrift store haul of the day:
A vintage (1980s) issue of Architectural Digest, which I will use in a display, and a framed print of a New Yorker cover with a slinky martini-sippin’ lady.
A rotating necklace display that - have to brag - I got for $1. I didn’t have such a thing yet so, amusingly, this is the premium find of today’s thrift lot. :)
A framed copy of a poem called “The Fretter” by Richard M. “Pek” Gunn. This kind of Americana doesn’t usually interest me because we’re drowning in it here in Arkansas. However, I really like the crosshatch-y line drawing of an old man looking out into the wilderness that is behind the text of the poem. Rather morbid for a happy ol’ southerner poem
Two mid-century anniversary trays that I had been eyeing for a while. They’re long and skinny and would be good for laying necklaces out on, or little candies, or just to sit on a vanity.
Couldn’t resist - another compote dish by Jeanette. This one is in “Amberina” (amber-colored, obviously) and not in as pristine shape as the clear one I already have at the store. Regardless, pedestal dishes like this can be used for all sorts of things.
