1,111th post!!!

My last post was my 1,111th post.  Wow!  I’m truly amazed that I have managed to find that much stuff to post about.

SO, what shall I do to commemorate this momentous occasion?  How about a ‘top 11’ list? 

I had actually put together a top 10 list a while back (before all the computer drama!) and set it aside to use on ‘one of those days’ when I couldn’t think of anything to post.  Now if I can just FIND that list.  Should be easy enough to come up with one more item to add to it.  SO, here’s my top 11 list of things I ALWAYS look for (IF the price is right!) when I am out shabby shopping.  These are MOSTLY things I am buying to sell in my booth, shows and on etsy; not personal collectibles.

AJ’S TOP 11 LIST OF MUST HAVES: (in no particular order)

1) Vintage /cream chenille bedspreads and embossed coverlets.

2) Eiffel Tower and Paris memorabilia

3) Little chairs; doll and child size.

4) Blank picture frames; just about any kind!

5) Vintage cherub vases and candle holders (any color  – just paint them white!)

6)  Clear apothecary jars.

7) Vintage suit cases; any size/color (I paint these too!)

8) Vintage picnic baskets.

9) Cloches

10) Little vintage foot/step stools

11) Vintage white dishes / Ironstone most preferable.  Mostly look for: Large platters and serving dishes, soup tureens, pitchers and tea post, creamers and sugar bowls, gravy/sauce boats, canisters and crocks.  Sub-collection of chicken/duck/swan stuff.

  1. […] that being said, I defer to this post where I listed the top 11 things I CURRENTLY look for when shopping for my space.  It is ever […]

  2. Besides being a writer I also operate a business called serendipitini.com and also a blog and also a blog http://serendipitini.blogspot.com/ where I blog about creative reuse and turning trash into treasure. Much of what I do as an artist is creative reuse and repurposed. I am a rescuer and I also resell some of the quirky items I find at a local creative reuse store and other places. So glad I found your site. This posting is also helpful to me as I like to choose carefully what I pickup at sales. And you are right. What sells depends on area and culture and just who happens to fall in love with a certain item.
