Rescued, Found, and Redeemed: A Sneak Peek at My Latest Finds

People ask me where I buy
the things I sell.

"Where do you get your stuff?"
 
Well, stuff can be hard to find.
 
We actually go and find
it all over the place.

Near.
And far.
 
 
 
This was found on my MIL's porch.

 
A book sale at a local college.
 



This beauty I found while looking through trays of old postcards
at an antique mall. That particular day the dealer
(an old guy who must LOVE postcards)
was sitting there with me and as I picked out
cards that I liked he would put a price on them!

 
An estate sale.

 
The antique mall where I have
my antique space.

 
Another estate sale in town.


Antique mall.


Tennessee.
 
Yep! The hubs found
this hat box on his way out
to visit my Step Son who is
stationed out there in the army.
 
All rescued from their previous
locations, with a look
ahead at a new "home."
 
This is the season for
finding vintage.
 
Such fun!

Fun! Fun! Will want to see how much you sell that hat box for - I have quite a few in varied states of condition. Curious as to how to re-sell them.
Joy!

Isn't treasure hunting fun Jillian? You have such great taste in the pieces you collect for your store. Happy July 4th!

You really do have some great finds, and sources for your finds. I sometimes luck out at garage sales and GW. One of my favorite spots is where my girls went to college -- a darling little thrift store where they practically GIVE things away.
