Let Your Spirit Soar~

Thanks for modeling Leslie!

$16 each

Easy clip on style, available in Brown, Turquoise or White.

Three plumes in all with 2 attached to a satin cord and one attached to a long rhinestone chain.

Repurposed Picture Frame

= Earring display

I picked up this antique picture frame without glass last week with the hope that it would make a great little earring display. Jane cut out 2 pieces of cardboard and attached linen fabric to both sides with fabric glue. The straight pins go in easily, and it holds a total of 24 pair on both sides since it's a "swing frame". This was a very easy project and I'll be looking for more swing frames on my next outing!

Bon Voyage From The Attic

Window shots are never easy, and best taken in the evening...but here's a shot of our Bon Voyage window taken after I closed shop today. For a small window, we sure can cram a lot of things in it. :) (Library Globe -sold)
Vintage suitcases and 2 mid-century globes

Vintage Germany souvenir scarf

Pretty neat, eh?

A Souvenir For My Darling - Cannes hankie

Vintage Fedora (sold)

Wonderful old mid-century Hotel Del menus for a Farm Growers Convention. Shop display for now, but if you'd like to take a peek at what was on the menu during the 1950's, stop on in..we'd love to show you!

Amelia Earhart Suitcase - this is a BIG one with original old travel decals.
Looks like someone traveled First Class on a Cunard Cruise with this one!

I can't tell you how many comments I received on this old Brownie Hawkeye camera today..seems everyone and their Mother had one. :) The placemats pictured to the left of the little slide case are something that I'll be writing about tomorrow. A set of 6 , with the most awesome graphics of London destinations..you have to see these!

I'll be sharing more as we add more vintage travel souvenirs, so check back!

Thank you Christine, for making us another fabulous banner!
