The hot humid air was on us a like a thick, velvet curtain this Sunday as I rushed through the flea market for some small wares. I followed my rules, resisting amazing retro glassware ('twas so painful) and came home with a few small sure-sellers. More on why my lots are smalls soon, first, the glorious scores!
First, this gorgeous belt buckle! Anchor-anything tends to do well, combine that with a belt buckle and you have a winner. --------->>> On Etsy
[Nude Centerfold photo originally above, removed to protect the innocent. (See comments.) Sorry if I offended anyone. Nude photos are just a study to me like any other artwork.]
They're already sold but I have a little time to read and scan them all! And look at these ads, sexy radio system. *wolf whistle*
I try to resist smalls and breakables these days but these squirrels too cute and attached to a little of the original packaging. And little squirrels do well for me. Sometimes I joke squirrels are the "new owl". --------->>> On Etsy
These aren't vintage but I'm a sucker for fish. Big time. They are my muse, especially tropicals like the ones above. They're still for sale if you'd like 'em of course. I think I'll hang them in my bathroom in plain view of the shower so I can imagine I'm bathing in the waterfall next to my straw hut in Hawai'i. Or maybe I should hang on to these until I'm 65 in my South Florida beach mansion with a 25-year-old pool boy to oogle... In short, I love fish.
My mom gave this to me after the flea market, it's dated from the 40s on the back, she said it belonged to her mother and gave it to me to sell! It has a big chip but a lot of personality! May be destined for Etsy or my antique mall booth soon.
I usually do well with these mid century modern snack tray coasters so I scooped up the set I realize this type goes in a chest of drawers but still awesome without it. --------->>> On Etsy
And this odd bronze mod amorphic-shaped sexy ash tray was sitting next to the anchor and had to come with me. Ash trays don't sell well but this one was small to store and intriguing. --------->>> On Etsy
I'm excited to be moving into a large antique mall booth next month, I have more than enough in this apartment to stuff it full. It'll be a great way to really establish my brand and finally put all my wares on display in one spot. 'Til then, so much stuff everywhere to price...
I know I always have to bring in fresh meat but damn. So. many. price tags. To write. So much stuff to re-shoot.
And boxes behind my computer chair right now. A couple in the bedroom. And even more... back to work with me! After a short reprieve in St. Augustine to regain my sanity. (For a laugh, here's all the merchandise I had stored in my kitchen after it was unearthed!)
Buy It. You Know You Want it.... All of these items will be listed online (or ebay or Etsy) soon (will update with links) if you'd like to buy anything you see PLEASE do e-mail me! Get it all away from me! Halp!
