Thing Of The Past ~ A Peek Into The Last Sale's Shopping Cart

Have you ever snuck a peek at what the person next to you in the check-out line has in their cart? "What did they get? How much did they pay for it? And where did they find it because I want one too!"It's a lot like that at the shop during the sale: people are always so curious as to what's been bought and is heading out the door. Well, we know it's not quite the same, but in the interest of quenching your curiosity, we thought we'd show you what were the most popular and fasted-selling items for July's opening. (You can click on the photos to see them larger.)
The first items on our shopping list is this pine table on wheels ($65.00) and this vintage painted cabinet with a cute little glass knob. Can't you just see these guys being pressed into use in your grandma's kitchen? They were only in the shop for one day before they were gone...

This stack-style dresser ($87.00) held on through Saturday. We had (as always) a huge selection of vintage dressers--short and tall--to choose from. Next month, we plan to have a bunch of desks for all those students heading back to school!

Finding artful bargains in July was like a day at the beach! Everyone was eyeing the beautiful form and color of this original painting. It hit the road pretty quickly priced at only $28.00! It's new owner not only had good taste, but she also found a gold coin worth 10% off during our July Treasure Hunt!

(We had a few pirates and a wench who were all too happy to greet our customers and let them know all about the Treasure Hunt!)

This nightstand, also priced at $28.00, and this

extremely hard-to-find vintage metal arched headboard ($175.00) are gone, gone, gone.

Okay, now brace yourself. We are going to show you something so cute that you will slap yourself silly in regret that someone other than YOU is sitting in it right now! Ready?............

Isn't this chair the cutest thing you ever saw?!??! Would you believe it's in perfect shape and IT'S NOT FABRIC???????? It's vinyl! Really! You had to touch it to believe it! Wouldn't the world be a more tidy place if everything was cute AND washable?!?!?!? It was only $38.00!

And here's the biggest thing we sold in July; this handsomely shabbified huge buffet! We'd love to visit it at it's new home and see how it's doing. We truly do get attached to the things we sell! If it wouldn't be in our own homes, we wouldn't have it in the shop, cuz we know what you like!

Here's looking at you, kid. We'd never seen a vintage Venetian mirror ($72.00) with this shape and detail before. We're sure it's a nice reflection on it's new owner's sense of style.

So there's your peek. All done without any sidelong glances, squeaky-wheeled shopping carts or worrying about picking the slowest check-out line in the store. Maybe next month you'll see a picture of what YOU bought at the August Sale listed here! (You can also SIGN UP to get the monthly email announcements so you'll be reminded of each sale and any monthly contests just before it happens.)


  1. I love the polka dot bicycle seat you have for your signage - did someone paint that or did you buy it that way? I'm going to be restoring an old bike like that and it's too cute!

  2. Hi Angela-
    The whole bike was painted by one of the owners at the shop. We park it in the driveway to make it easy to find us! Hope you'll come see us one day!
