Hi friends! Yes, I know it’s Wednesday again…I need to get better about keeping my blog deadlines! I hope you’re all having a great week so far. Has everyone finished taking down the Christmas decor? I’m about 75% done. It’s definitely not fun to take them down like it was to put them up!
For today’s Show and Tell, I have some baby themed items that I plan to bring to my antique booth. By far the thing I enjoy most about having a retail space is creating pleasing displays and vignettes.
I’ll start with this old doll crib that I scored at a church sale for $1.00. I love the chipped blue paint.I plan to make a small quilt with this adorable toile fabric to cover the mattress area.I’ve had this vintage crocheted pink layette set for so long that I don’t remember where it came from or what I paid for it. I just love the tattered ribbons.This vintage giraffe lamp came from a consignment shop that I frequent. It was $5.00 and I couldn’t pass it up.The baby print came from a church sale. It was part of a “fill a box for $5.00” haul. My absolute favorite type of sale 🙂 It’s also in a darling old frame.I found this planter at a rummage sale for just 50 cents. It fits right in with my baby theme. I may pop a faux plant inside for staging at the booth.This pink doll highchair came from a church sale. It was manufactured by Amsco. The vintage graphic is just too cute. It was $10.00, but I’ve seen these for sale on eBay for up to $80.00. Finally, I picked up 2 packs of crayons at an estate sale for 25 cents each. They’ve never been used, and are what we call “new old stock”. They were manufactured by Binney & Smith in the 1970’s. Crayons of a similar vintage go for about $8.00 on eBay.I plan to bring these items to the booth by Friday. I removed all of the Christmas merchandise at the beginning of the week, and it’s looking a little sparse.
I’ll be putting the wallpaper on my front entry walls this weekend, so I won’t have a $100 Room Challenge update until Sunday or Monday. I’ve learned through some online research that hanging removable wallpaper is a two person job, so I’ll need my husband’s help.
Thank you for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of your week!
Until the next time,
