I've found you can't be in this business without taking a few things home for yourself. I have eclectic tastes from western/rustic to romantic french country to 30's/40's/50's vintage style. I can't seem to narrow it down. I absolutely love the color green!! Green painted shabby chic furniture, green dishes, green handled kitchen utensils, green rhinestone costume jewelry and the list goes on and on. I adore vintage turqoise/abalone and silver jewelry, the most I've paid is $10 per piece. I've snatched up some beautiful pieces to take home and fill up my jewelry box with. I don't just look at them, I wear and enjoy them!
I love 30's/40's/50's items like old kitchen collectibles, crock bowls, green depression glass, green & red handled kitchen utensils, camp style, old fishing collectibles, vintage suitcases for storage, celluloid dresser collectibles, toy tractors and old linens.
Western collectibles such as old bits and spurs, old guns, indian blankets, oak furniture, rustic woodenwares, pottery, powder horns, old western hardback novels, deer horns are a few things that I just have to keep for myself.
Here's a few pics of my treasures....
