When I first started blogging, my main occupation was a “picker.”
Back then, I attended at least one auction every week, and during the summer months I often went to several each week.
It wasn’t uncommon for me to fill up the back of our pickup truck from just one auction with vintage pieces that I’d bring home to clean up and sell or salvaged junk that I’d repurpose into something new and sell through my online shop.
Things changed a few years ago when our local auction house closed down and I found fewer and fewer auctions to attend.
My workshop is already so full of auctions finds and I was out of space anyway, so it was probably for the best.
Since I maxed out my available storage space, I began focusing attention on my line of Vintage Sign Stencils, which don’t require going to auctions or having lots of storage space.
Occasionally I come across farmhouse kitchen decors that I fall in love with and decide to make them available in my shop.
I’ve just added adorable metal mason jar lids with handles.
I put them on pint jars, but they will fit on any standard mouth canning jar.
Here’s a close-up of the matte black lids.
I also have them available in a glossy red finish.
I’m also carrying ticking stripe towels, which I’m in love with.
They are nice and large and have a tab in one corner to hang them.
These are the blue stripe towels.
I also have red stripe towels.
One last item I added in my shop is a vintage silver creamer and sugar bowl set.
I love the detail on the handles and little feet.
Since I love patina, I didn’t polish them. But I think they’d be very pretty all shined up with the tarnish removed, too.
These would look adorable as planters for succulents.
With the weather starting to warm up, I’m hoping to find some auctions to attend. So I guess I’d better make room for new finds.
Vaya con Dios,
