Collections of Selections by Julie, Come See!!

 If you are looking for something specific, then you may just find yourself in one of Julie's booths.  Julie has a lot of items in the antique mall, and is very good at arranging them in collections which makes them easy to spot and even easier to find that 'needle in a hay stack' you may be looking for.

Here we see a charming collection of saucers.  So your were having a tea party, and oops, your cute little niece slipped and broke her saucer.  You have a pretty good chance of being able to find, if not a matching replacement, at least a coordinated saucer which might even add charm to your next party!
Or you may be looking for a small wood box.  Maybe you want one just like the one that your dad kept in his drawer full of sweet treats?

 Or you need one to make a treasure box for your baby's 'unsrcapbookable' treasures, like his pacifier, a lock of his hair, one of his favorite blocks or other toy, a snip of his kiki, his plastic hospital bracelet, and his baby blessing shoes.  Memory boxes like these can keep a trip back to your child's babyhood handy for whenever you are feeling nostalgic. (and when they become teens, who isn't nostalgic for their babyhood?)
You may be looking for that missing volume of the Hardy Boys that you loved as a child.  A lot of these sets of youth books are numbered, which makes it easy to complete a collection!

Or perhaps you need a picture frame that is just the right size for that picture of your Grandpa that you have been hauling around fro ages.   Whatever you are shopping for, you are very likely to find it in one of Julie's several booths.  Come and take a look, you will certainly leave with a prize in hand.

I just wish Julie had had this wonderful mother and baby picture back when I was collecting them.  It would have been the star of my collection, but it can still be the star of yours!!  Thanks for coming along on the tour!


  1. You are blogging at 6:55 a.m.? Can you say addicted? Good post!

  2. You can say 'frustrated' if you like. I tried to do it last night, but couldn't get the pics to load .... thus I tried again this morning and found out I just needed to reboot. Ah well. It got done a day late and a .... well you know the rest.

  3. Very lovely post. You are kind and I appreciate meeting you and your collections of wonderful things.
