Recent Finds and My New Stars Space

The other day I took my number one girl shopping on Hawthorne Blvd. in Portland.  Lots of hip, cool vintage/resale shops.  We were looking for fun, funky clothes for back to school, but as always, I found some good stuff too.  Here’s a picture of what I got.


Pair of metal doll chairs, rhinestone tiara, baby spoon, silver etched napkin ring, vintage hat, cool bread box and two vintage petticoats.


I’ve been selling every tiara that I find lately, so was very excited to find this one.  So much prettier  and sparklier than pictured.  The cute Gerber baby spoon and napkin ring were Goodwill finds. The surprise with the napkin ring was when I took the price sticker off, underneath were my initials, LJ.  I find things with initials all the time, but never, ever mine and since I have a small collection of vintage silver napkin rings, this one is definitely a keeper.


I was lucky enough to run into a dealer I know at the always fun “House of Vintage.” She gave me a screaming deal on this cute little hutch and a few lingerie items (not pictured).

Yesterday I went to my mall spaces and did a little updating, fluffing.  So glad I remembered to bring my camera so I could show you my new space at Stars. 


It was hard to get the whole booth in one picture so hopefully you will get the idea. A recent project is the little lamp with the wire/spoon shade pictured on the right.


Here you can see the vanity that I took to Barn House, the work bench I had at Farm Chicks and lots of other misc. goodies.  That work bench is such a cool piece.  I hope it will find a good home, but I’m not in a hurry as it’s an awesome display piece.


You might remember these lamps from my last post.  I think they are so cute all lined up like that.  The hutch top sat on a dresser that I showed in the last Barn House post.  That dresser sold the day I was moving in.  Yeah!


More goodies.




Another shot.

My first week in my new spot was awesome.  I am beyond thrilled with my sales and will continue to bring more goodies in every week.  Just another excuse to do more shopping.

Speaking of shopping, Isabel and I decided to take a little road trip this weekend.  We will be headed to Yakima to attend the Clayson Farms Antique Sale.  Lots of our friends will be there including Joy, Sue and Julie. I am super excited to be meeting this awesome vintage lovin gal. Colleen will be there with her in-laws who are vendors at this sale.  This is our first time attending this show and we have heard nothing but great things about it so we are stoked!

Another little tidbit is that my hubby and I had our 19th wedding anniversary yesterday.  We will be celebrating tomorrow night at the zoo where we will see this band


I am super excited as I have been a fan for years and years!  Should be a lot of fun!

Hi Lisa,
Can't wait to see what you do with that little hutch! Love the line up of lamps with the creamy polka dot shades. Thought your readers might like to know about a vintage button giveaway on my blog.
P.S. Saw the B-52's a few years back in Salem. F*U*N!
