Let's Talk Vintage #25: Springing Up Vintage Finds

Good day all!
Happy Spring!
(Can you tell I'm excited?)
The days are longer, the sun is making its way
back to us for the next several months... and it
is a great time to hunt for vintage.
So far two church sales and a day of antiquing
has greatly increased my inventory for the year!
Plus, last week I joined a fellow blogger, Joyce, of
The Quilted Nest, and another dealer from our
old antique mall, Cathy, for some vintage shopping.
It was interesting to see what each of
us went for... knowing there were
three of us who were hunting for vintage.
We headed out early in the morning. And yes, I mean
early when I say 9 o'clock!  We visited a small
town that had several thrift shops.
I found the lovely Dora Miller book and the
blue rhinestone necklace.
I also picked up an Easter Basket for Bebe.
 Then I found some more goodies for my
other Etsy shop, the one where I sell more
"retro" items. The owl night light and the
Gonder Pottery vase are already listed here.
We had a great time! I am looking forward
to going again sometime this summer.
Now let's take a look at this week's features:
The ever sweet bloggin' gals at
Ivy and Elephants shared this beautiful egg.
What's not to love with its beautifully
painted panels?
 Blue Willow House found this awesome
 picnic basket, perfect for bread and wine!
I love picnics!
and last, but certainly not the least,
created this lovely mantle decoration
using a chicken feeder. Wow!
Now it is your turn. Let's Talk Vintage!

I'm excited too, Jill! I love spring, and we're having fun with our new space at the antique mall. Seems like everything is more fun when the weather breaks. Have a great Easter week, and thank you for hosting us.
