Long Time....No Post

It seems like forever since I have posting anything!! It seems like life had been very busy these past two weeks. I started a new semester of school and that is keeping me super busy. I am in all my major classes now and it's very exciting! Sales at the booth has really picked up. Many of my larger items sold, so I have had to make a few trips to the mall to restock. I also have been hitting up sooooo many sales!! I have gotten so many great deals that I can't wait to share!!!

Here is an updated picture of my booth. The mall asked that we take part in a storewide sale. I thought it would be a good way to help get some traffic to my booth. Now onto all the finds from the past two weeks (warning: there are a lot!!!)

I am trying to get together some Christmas items for the booth so I can add them in by November. These cute little candle holders were purchased at an estate sale.


I picked these flowers up today at a yard sale. They are plastic, however, with a little spray paint, I think they will look a lot better!
I have been on a search for jello molds since I regretted not picking some up at a yard sale. I got all 12 for $4.00 today on my way out of the antique mall. I was so thrilled to get the sifter for only $2.00. I hope to display it in my kitchen some day. I got two of those glasses; they match the milk bottle I got a while back. The sterling silver cake plate was a bargain at only $1.00. I have yet to clean it!
This would have to be my favorite find of the day! It was only $3.00 for the scale and original box. It is in excellent condition. This will be staying with me!
I got these mirrors earlier in the week at a yard sale a block from my house. I have yet to decided what to do with them. I might keep them or I might put them in the booth.
I couldn't pass up this apron today. It has the nicest needle work! I will be taking it to the booth on my next trip.
This is another item that was on my wish list. I was never going to pay the high prices at antique stores and even at flea markets. This I found for only $2.00 at a yard sale. I am planning on doing something to decorate the front.

This fabric and the Swanky Swigs I got all for $1.00 at the flea market. I am still thinking of something creative to do with the fabric. It is not very large....so it's been tricky to think up something.
More ornaments for the booth!!! At the bottom there are small feather tree sized ones--totally worth $1.00!!
This tray was my favorite find from last week. It is in awesome condition and will be a great add to my collection. I also couldn't beat the price---25 cents!!
I am still trying to get this pan clean. Most of them are coming clean!! I was thrilled to find out that it was from the 50's. I just bought it because it was only a buck and I liked the design!!
These are more additions to my hope chest. The canisters were only $1.00 for all. I got it on a rainy, dark day so I was a little disappointed to find them less than the best condition when I went to clean them....well only the tops are not so good. The ice trays were found at a quick stop to a yard sale on my way to school. I saw similar ones at that large flea market I went to, however, they were very pricey. These were 25 cents each!!
I have been wanting one of these for a very long time. But, being a college student and on a tight budget, they were always out of my price range. This was not the case with this one...$10.00.
Here the last of all my finds for the past two weeks. The Fire King measuring cups and the large golden pitcher stayed with me, along with the pink and white cup and the peach cup. The rest made their way to the booth today.
I thought I would share with you my future stove. This is in my grandma's basement and as long as I can remember, I have always pictured it in my kitchen someday. (My grandma so generously offered it to me, knowing my love for vintage stuff). It needs to be rewired and then it all set!! I love that it is a double oven and that it has the large pot thing in the upper left corner (it can also be removed). They don't make ovens like this today!!



That's all that's new here!! Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

That's a great stove. I'm so impressed with you running a booth while you're still in college.

Love the jello molds! I can't resist those things. :)

The stove is so neat! What is that round thing in the back left corner? I've never seen anything like it.
