A few of my favorite things........

I became a member of I Antique Online a few years ago and still love this site!
Below is a few of my favorite collectibles that are from a slideshow that I have shared with the thousands of members who also have a passion for all things vintage.
I tend to have sellers remorse and miss some of the things I have sold...LOL

Where am I?

While blog hoppin I found this neat little sign and stole borrowed
it because it says just how I am feeling these days!

I followed my bliss, my heart and my passion but I still don't know where I am going just yet.
But, I do have an idea of where I want to be.........Junk Queen Street!! Hmm, is that just down the road from Sesame Street?

I actually have a pretty good start on the junk in my trunk, or under my sofa I should say.
Prime example of a true junkaholic? well here ya go......

What to do with this? Ebay? Hell's fire it would cost a fortune to ship or should I Craigs List this thang.Hey it's a hot collectible and can fetch like 200 bucks, really!!
The Commodore 128 hit the stands in 1985 and folks who love their vintage techy stuff have been grabbin up these babies.

Movin' & Tradin'

Sometimes I help my friends clean out or move their stuff.
In return I get to take home
some good junk like this wing back chair!!
Well, actually I took home two of these babies.

Some day I plan to get my chairs upholstered in a small stripe or flower print.

Several years ago I helped a family member clean out an estate she inherited and let me tell ya, we sure had fun digging through years and years worth of vintage stuff.
Most of my take home goods have already been sold,
but I still have a few items left that I might list on Ebay.

I love these Ice Capade booklets. Especially the Disney graphics on the back!

And these sweet vintage cookie cutters still in the package are one of my favorites.

Wisemen & Pixies

Vintage Christmas is always at the top of my list.
One of my favorite junkin finds is this sweet little Christmas Pixie, circa 1960.

When I was a little girl mamaw always had this chalkware Nativity set displayed beneath her Christmas tree.

Addicted to Junk

I've been addicted to junk for a long time. It all started when I was just a little girl and I saw my very first junk store.
At the top of my bucket list is to own this very truck. I could haul a lot of "good junk" home in this baby!
