What I've Been Up to: A Whirlwind of Vintage!

Just in case you were wondering
if I've found or listed anything new lately...
 
I have...mostly listed things, 
however... in between
 Nutcracker rehearsals,
a trip to the lake,
2nd grade homework,
shop orders, laundry,
cooking, scrapbooking,
Fall decorating,
Tech Team at
my church,
Instagram,
Facebook,
 Pinterest,
and a
tornado.
Yep.
 
 
A tornado.
It was small.
Only an F1.
 
But still.
 
And I'm not sure I've fully re-covered
from the Nutcracker birthday party.
 
 
Through all of that, I've been busy loading
 as much as I can into my Etsy shops.
Everything in the collage above is done.
 
As well as everything below:
 
While I'm not that into blue I think
 this train case still has great appeal.
It is in my AntiqueRetroactive Etsy shop.



I found these two Roald Dahl books,
the author of the famous
"Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."
Turns out these books would be worth a ton
if they were first editions. Since my
copies are not, I'll see what happens
with Fantastic Mr. Fox and
also from the same era.
 
 
If you're not into Roald Dahl, then
how about some Thackeray?

 
that I listed recently.
Was thinking if it didn't sell....
I just might have to keep it!
 
I'm also digging into
my Christmas goodie stash.
 
Can I get a Yeeee haaaaah!
 
I'm sure the dust bunnies
are gathering an army
by now but 'tis the season
for sellers!
 
Stay tuned for a sneak peek
at what Santa Bella is pulling out
of her sack...
