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.
