Some of my Latest Vintage Finds...

I bought this fold out case full of someone's collection of little spoons. 
I always try to have a good supply of silvery pieces at my shop, as they seem to be very popular.
I like to package each one with a postcard in a cellophane bag, which makes them lovely little keepsakes or gifts.
But before I do that, I've had to clean them all first...

I like to use Bar Keepers Friend, which is a great cleaning product to have in your store, as it works well on so many surfaces.

There...
much better.
Lovely framed prints and postcards.

Large china bowl, sadly with a couple of chips, but still very pretty. 

An unusual metal bracket.
A set of 5 charming glass fruit dishes.

Little wooden box with Victorian paper scrap detail.
(Sorry -I'm reserved.)
Unusual stirrup bottle.

French glass lampshade.  
Beautiful long length kid gloves on a large old fashioned airer. 
Graniteware jug and French storage canister. 
C1930's plaster wall plaque. 
Cute vintage print. 
Springtime vintage print. 
C1950's French magazines... 
 With wonderful advertisements and articles. 
All at the shop today :) 
Have a perfect day,

Love the little fruit dishes! So cute! And I would love to flip through those magazines! You always manage to find the best things! ! ! Everytime I visit, it makes me want to head to the nearest antique/collectibles stores and browse around for the afternoon! And, if I were about . . . what? . . . 4,000 miles closer . . . that would be in your cute little shop! :)

Your blog is lovely! I don't know how I landed here, but I am so glad to visit. I am going to be a new follower. We use Barkeeper's Friend here in the States. One of the best products around. Off to look at some of your other posts.
