Local Auction ~ Lots of New Vintage Treasures!


Pink Depression Glass Bon Bon Dish

Last night my dear husband came home from a local auction with a twinkle in his eye. He does this every now and then, and just loves it. What he brings home is always fun to dig through. Lots of new things to place in my Bella Rosa online shop, our antique booth..and maybe even some for ebay.

Pretty Lilac n Violets Rouge Box



But which goes where? This is the dilemma. What do I put in the online store, on ebay, or in the booth? I now have three places for these things to go. It can be a bit overwhelming. I just take it one thing at a time.


Pair of Glove Trees from GIMBELS

He brought home some silverplated items, vintage jewelry, old children's books, toys, pink depression glass, vintage clothing, some military items and more. I really liked the boxes of UNUSED vintage greeting cards. I'm thinking these will go great in my ephemera category...so this was an easy choice.



Hilton Hotel Silverplated Cocktail Set

(SOLD)

I'm also thinking of having a Memorial Day sale to make room for some of the vintage jewelry on the site. Maybe the sale will be for the whole website. I need to figure out how to do this technically. I'd also like to send out emails when I'm having a sale. If anyone knows of a great service that does this, please feel free to leave me a comment.



Vintage Easter Decorations

In the meantime, I'll be cleaning, taking pictures, and pricing items (for the booth.) Never a dull moment, this antique biz. And if you're an "addict" like we are, you know how much fun it is!
