Ready for Round Two?


Oh my!  Look at the time!  Wow, it's been a while!  Time has a way of sneaking by, doesn't it?  I had been busy preparing for and hosting another one of my barn sales last weekend but with the sale behind me I am now able to finally get the shop restocked!  Thank you for being so patient with me! 






A hard-to-find Pates French tin fits perfectly in any decor!  I love the bright colors on these French tins and they look wonderful with your favorite Spring flowers in a vase tucked inside!
Price~ SOLD.





A matching Chocolat En Poudre French tin.
Price~ SOLD.




The possibilities are endless with this set of four Shabby Chic crown hooks.  Fashion into coat hooks upon a piece of barn salvage wood or simply hang directly on the walls in your craft room or bathroom for towels.  They even look great gathered in a decorative bowl as a table centerpiece.
Price~ SOLD!




Set of three Shabby Chic crown hooks.
Price~ SOLD!






A set of 32 vintage bobbins from the American Thread Co. make a statement displayed in a glass jar or in an ironstone bowl on the table!  Each one is constructed from cardboard and wrapped with tan thread.  They measure 3/4 inch diameter and 1/4 inch tall.  The company was in business from the early 1900's to the 1980's.  I am not sure of their age but my guess is that they are an older variety.
Price~ SOLD!







Oh I love this adorable general store counter-top seed display and it's hard to let it go!  It is in wonderful shabby condition and perfect for your Spring and Summer decor!  Included are various French flower and vegetable labels to display in each slot.  It measures 15 3/4" wide, 13 3/4" tall and 11" deep.
Price~ SOLD.





 I love tucking these vintage English marmalade pots everywhere.  They look great on desktops to corral ink pens or on the table stuffed with fresh flowers.
Price~ SOLD.



This perfectly shabby wooden French wall organizer is painted a distressed white with three stickers reading Lettres for 'letters', Factures for 'bills', and Divers for 'others'.  It also has three little metal hooks on the bottom.  It measures 17 1/2" tall.
Price~ SOLD.





A primitive wooden tool box becomes a wonderful catchall and can be used anywhere from the house to the garden.  It has metal detailing on the corners and handle.  It measures 12 1/4" wide, 6 1/4" tall and 12 1/4" deep.
Price~ SOLD.



This pair of vintage child fishing poles is adorable for display or fashion into curtain rods.  The tip to one of the poles has broken off long ago.
Price~ SOLD!





Set of 19 vintage assorted printer's blocks.  I love to display these in glass jars or in counter top bowls.  They make wonderful conversation pieces!
Price~ SOLD.



Straight from France!  This adorable antique twisted wire basket is in wonderful vintage condition without any broken wires and with just a touch of rust.  It measures 8" wide and 2 1/2" tall.

These reproduction French tip saucers were manufactured to mimic the vintage tip saucers used in French bistros.  The waiter would continue to stack the saucers for each item ordered according to the prices imprinted on them.  The total bill would be tallied up later using the number of saucers stacked.  It worked in the same manner as opening a tab.  These particular reproduction saucers are no longer being produced and are becoming more rare just like their counterparts.  I love to use them as dessert serving plates or as coasters on the coffee table.  There are two available.

One of my favorite items for sale is this vintage European dough board.  I love decorating with these old boards as they make wonderful centerpieces and serving boards on the kitchen table.  This one is quite large measuring 23 3/4" wide.  
Price~ SOLD!




I adore old hand-sewn quilts!  This adorable shabby quilt is comprised of purple cross-stitched flowers.  Some of the cross stitchery shows wear particularly in the center and has some missing threads, but it is a sound shabby quilt overall and full of charm!
Price~ SOLD!



This French-style woven basket is the perfect size to catch all your decorating magazines or to hang on the wall with dried lavender bunches stuffed inside!  I believe I purchased this particular basket from Vintageweave Interiors and it is in excellent condition!  It measures 12 1/2" wide, 17 3/4" tall and 4" deep.  
Price~ SOLD!






This vintage Collector's Casseroles advertising plaque is a great addition to any country kitchen decor.  It is in good condition with a distressed, shabby front and a glued hanger attached to the back.  It is comprised of  a lightweight faux wood.
Price~ SOLD.



Well, there you have it!  I have to stop here, but I promise I will have more to add soon (I will not keep you waiting long next time!)  You probably noticed that I decided to switch things up a bit this time around.  I have added the Add to Cart button which links you direct to Paypal.
 I need your feedback... which way do you prefer?  The emailing me for purchase route is a bit more personal and I can have a direct communication line with you (which I love!) but these buttons are more convenient!  I would love to hear your thoughts!



Thank you so much again for your loyalty!  I have not been the best blogger lately, so thank you for sticking around!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
