Framed Vintage Button Art
By now, I know you must think me to be a terrible, teasing tormentor.
Vintage Half Doll / Vintage Millinery / Vintage Bead Strands
While I did want to create a little suspense, I had no intention of stretching things out this far.
Silver Plate Tea Tin / Gerity Silver Plate Serving Set
I have a really good explanation for why it has taken so long for me to get the giveaway goods posted.
Vintage Shell Pink Butterfly Dish / Lovely Linen Piece
As you know, the Yankee and I have been traveling—for weeks now—doing antiques and collectibles shows.
Vintage Molds / Rusty Iron Piece / A Brambleberry Cottage Beaded-Board Box
Between shows, we are scouting out new items to sell—or at least, the components to create new items—from some of our favorite spots.
You know the places I'm referring to.
I've shared them before: Cline's, Lexington Flea Market, and even the locations where we've done shows—like The Big Classic, as well as, several others I will be posting about later.
Mini Vintage Whisk Broom
After each show, we have to pack up any items we've not sold, load them on the truck, and take them back to be stored until the next show.
1920s Sheet Music
But, the venue of a show dictates which items we are able to take with us each time.
And, not every category of item can be sold at every show.
T.J. Maxx Metal Heart
So, after each show, we attempt to repack any leftover items with the next show in mind.
1930s Teacher Magazines
When I decided to do this giveaway—to celebrate my birthday with you—I began to set aside specific items from our various excursions to include in the giveaway.
Vintage Skeleton Keys / 1980s Necklace Beads / Old Stock, New Cigar Labels
After packing up the goods from a handful of shows—some of which involved a harried, hurried packing to beat the rain—many of the giveaway items got mixed up with the show items.
Vintage Valentine Cards
My original intent was to tease you just until Saturday night or Sunday morning—when I returned home from this last show.
I promise; It was meant to tease, not torture!
Vintage Valentine Envelope / Vintage Easter Postcard
You can imagine my panic when I arrived home Saturday evening and couldn't locate half of the items I was including in the giveaway!
Vintage Jewelry Pieces
I have spent the past few days, unloading the truck and pouring through boxes of packed goods, desperately seeking the treasures I bought—with you in mind.
I am delighted to say...
they're all accounted for!
Take a look just below each image, and you'll see—in smaller print—the goodies the winner of this special giveaway will receive.
Now tell me. Was it worth the wait?
Am I forgiven? ; )
