All new in the shop!

December 28, 2011

All new in the shop today! That bark cloth fabric sold already but I'm posting it here because it is so pretty. It's about 7 yards, it sold like 30 seconds after I listed it, it was a new record for me. And Winter seems to have really arrived today, it is so cold out right now. I just hope it doesn't ever snow on any of the days I have scheduled to go thrift shopping this season.

I thrifted this black cat the other day, I was so psyched because I collect these little made in Japan animals and I hadn't found one in forever. I hope everyone had a good holiday, mine was good. I ate jello and then I felt weird about it. I never eat fake food but my family makes jello layered with cool whip at every holiday so it was just sitting there looking so delicious. My brother hooked up a surround sound system at my parent's house and then we watched Firefly, one of my favorite shows ever. Now I am back home and it is pouring rain outside, Jason is curled up asleep under the kitchen table. So besides that I am offering free shipping in the shop until the end of the year, just enter code "holidayfreeship" at checkout.

This note from 1968 was in the pocket of the coat in the top photo, it reads:

Dear Don,

I have been to see you but you were asleep. I hated to wake you. Will come again soon. Take care now and God bless you. Your in my thoughts always.

Love you,


The question I have is what was it doing in a woman's coat pocket? Did she change her mind after writing it and not leave the note? Or is she another woman who found the note at the door and took it so Don would never get it? We will never know. 

Oh and another thing, there is a giveaway for my shop going on over at Ashley's Fancy Fine blog, go check it out and leave a comment to win!

All new in the shop! What else is new, I was in New Jersey the other day, it was totally weird. I promised to help my dad pick up some furniture in exchange for a ride home to Brooklyn. We went to pick it all up in this gated community, that was what was so weird about it. All the houses were nearly identical, the lawns were all mowed to the exact same height and everything was white and beige. The sidewalks were so clean, there wasn't a single speck of flattened chewing gum or even a dead leaf on the ground. A lady came out to get the mail from her mailbox in her white slippers, thats how clean the ground was. It made me think of Celebration Florida, I recall there was an old X-Files episode about that place. Yikes.

All new in the shop this week! I am so excited, I got a new bust form! I really wanted a vintage one but I couldn't find one that I liked that wasn't crazy expensive so I got this new model, it's pretty cool though. I love that it has wheels at the bottom, I can spin it around to take photos from every angle.
