Item of the week.....

In honor of Spring and the fact that I actually managed to list a few things today, I'm choosing this super darling 1940/50s clear rhinestone necklace as item of the week. This is currently available in my Etsy store. I will sweeten the deal: if you convo me and say you saw it on the blog, I will throw in a pair of matching rhinestone screwback earrings ABSOLUTELY FREE!
What could be better?

PS: While you are checking out Etsy, don't forget to type in vmteam into the search engine, see what kind of lovely things you can find from my fellow Vintage Market Team members!

It's nearly Easter and that means it's time for disgusting candy! I know you can get Peeps year around, but I only buy them at Easter, and I only buy the pink bunnies. It's tradition.
The best way to eat them is to cut a slit in the cellophane. Let them sit for a day or two & get hard on the outside. Gross? Perhaps. Yummy? YES.

New stuff on flickr....

Well not new as in today, but fairly recent. I did manage to scan some stuff and post it on flickr last month. Hopefully I'll have some energy to post some new things soon. This batch has vintage music ads, packaging & toys.

Item of the week

Forgive my absence. I've been trying to recoup from this last Crohn's bout. It's been slow going around here, I just don't have any energy. (I partially blame Mars retrograde.) This flare isn't really settling down the way I'd like it to. Just got off another round of Prednisone and I'm waiting for the Imuran to take effect. Crossing fingers it does, I really do not want to go back on biologics.

Okay, enough of that! On to the item of the week.
Sweet little 1930s filigree & clear crystal necklace.
Perfect for a wedding, prom or just because you feel like it!
