Nifty Thrifty Tuesday/Vintage Things Thursday

Hi there! Welcome to Nifty Thrifty Tuesday hosted by Linda of and Vintage Things Thursday hosted by Suzanne at The first item I would like to share, is a vintage picnic basket! I have wanted one for quite some time, and finally found one on an antique hunt with some friends. It was $28, and in good condition. I plan on painting it pink, and displaying vintage linens in it.

This is an antique baby scale. The graphics on it are really nice and colorful. It is in great condition with no rust. It's missing it's top, but I think it's still really cool!

Here is a vintage baby dress from the 50's, I picked up at a church bazaar. I had posted this last week for pink Saturday also. It has sweet little flocked flowers on it, and it's original hang tag. I plan on hanging it on my bedroom wall, with other little vintage white dresses. (Thanks hubby) lol!

These items are from my local Goodwill, all at 25% off. Cute pair of old Navy shorts for grandson,

a bag of vintage white buttons, (YEY), and old ball jar, and the sweetest Napco baby planter.

I have been having good luck lately at antique, and thrift stores. Thanks for coming by to visit.

I am also joining in on:

Thanks ladies!

Pink Saturday

Hello, and welcome to another fun Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly of Thanks Beverly! Sorry I am a little late in posting. I had some problems with Blogger. Please click on any picture to make it larger.
The first item I would like to share, is this adorable vintage pink dress! I found it at a church bazaar last year for $8. It is from the 50's, and has the original hang tag still attached. It has the sweetest little flocked flowers on it. Pinkalishious (yes, Eileen, that is a made up word lol) and adorable!
This is a vintage teacup, that I found while antiquing with some girlfriends last Friday. It is from the Shelley collection, and the pattern is called Bridal Rose. Little pink roses, and the pretty scalloped edge sold me on this one.

This is a Victorian music box, that I acquired some years ago, at one of my favorite boutiques. I collect dolls, and just fell in love with this. I thought it was so unusual and different. Well, hope you enjoyed your visit, and don't forget to check out the other participants over at Beverly's. Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Things Thursday

Hello and welcome to another fun Vintage Things Thursday, hosted by sweet Suzanne of Colorado lady. Thanks Susanne for hosting this fun party for us each week. Last Friday, I went antiquing with some girlfriends in Point Pleasant NJ. I love antiquing and had never been there before. Oh wow, was I in for a treat! We went to this store that used to be an old Woolworth's store. How cool is that? For those of you not familiar with Woolworth's, it was a 5&10 from maybe the 50's into the 70's. Here is the front of the building.

The original old ceiling.

This must be the original tile, and the "W" as you entered through the doors.

Filled to the brim with vintage goodies galore!!

This was taken at a different store, also filled with a lot of vintage goodies!

This was taken in a big building called the Vintage Emporium. There were three floors in this one. Look at all of the pretty jewelry! There was so much to take in! I didn't know where to look first.

Lots of pretty china and dishes here. This photo was taken looking down from the second floor.

This mannequin was also in the jewelry section.

This is another store we visited. In total there were about 6 of them that we went to. It was vintage heaven!

This was very interesting. A vintage frame with a screen attached to the back that you can hang your earrings on. I had also seen something like this in another store, where lace was attached to the back. The picture didn't come out well. I think I liked that one better.

This was from another store with a more rustic appeal to it.

Well, I hope you liked my tour of these great antique stores. We had such a fun day! I forgot to take a picture of the things I purchased! I'll save that for another day. Thanks for coming by, and don't forget to visit Suzanne for more participants.
