Time To Show Some Love...

for the VINTAGE
...seems that I have neglected sharing our love in the vintage department, so I will try to add a post at least once a week. No promises..but I'll try!

Here's a peek at some fun treasures that have recently made their way into our hearts and the shop.

(12/15 : Tray Sold )
The "mother" of all tole trays..this truly is the largest I've seen!
It is not for the perfectionist, but I actually prefer them well loved..the colors are faded to perfection, and the scattered paint chips and bits of rust? They just add to the charm. We also have lots of pretty silver plated serving pieces for your holiday table.

Sweetness overload..one look at this vintage holiday angel...
and your heart will melt!

Staffordshire Hunt Scene Cup (missing saucer)

Oh so sweet ballerina figurine (Sold)

This little guy hiding behind a coat of arms is actually a figural bottle opener.
Heavy cast metal. I've never seen one quite like it!

and of course..there are always vintage Christmas ornaments, and boy do we have them! We have boxed sets, tree toppers and singles in cellophane bags -ready to go!

Counting Our Blessings

The Attic Girls would like to take this time to "thank you", our faithful customers who have supported us throughout this past year.

YOU are one of our many blessings that we count each and every day.

Wishing you and yours, a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.

Just finished this wreath Wednesday before closing up the shop...
and I only had one hot glue burn!

That might be a new record for me. :) I'll be making another one this weekend...
