My new case!

Hello friends.  I am so excited about my display case at Queen of Hearts. (I know, I know, I get excited about the smallest things...but for me it is these simple things in life that set me dancing)  I spent most of this damp and rainy Saturday setting it up and of course, adding a few more items to my booth as long as I was there.  The case is packed to the gills but I still have a few things I would like to do to it.  The back of the doors are black and with no lighting in that immediate area, I have to maximize whatever light I can find.  So I will put a pale, vintage wallpaper on the back of the doors next week.This will lighten up the case a bit and make it easier for folks to see what is inside. 


My case as you walk through the right main entrance.


Pretty vintage figurines and jewelry.


Fantastic pair of vintage Dior Noir cats eye sunglasses. These are uber FAB.


I adore vintage rhinestone jewelry. They have such sparkle and fire.



Interesting items to appeal to all kinds of collectors.


This woman's Art Nouveau flask with collapsible cup/top is a personal favorite. 


Pretty Austrian crystal drip necklace and a fantastic vintage lucite box purse.


Yes, you will be the "Queen of the Rodeo" with this smashing rhinestone rodeo queen tiara.  Perfect for the western bride as well.  My honey's film Sea Reef underwater camera outfit.  He has upgrade to a new one so it's time to pass this one on to another snorkeler or diver.


Wonderful vintage bells, antique ice cream scoops and a frozen Charlie.


I also adore crystal knife rests from the Victorian era. 
These are lovely and two are master rests.


Some pretty items to entice shoppers to my case.


This magnificent Sail Fish is Italian glass.  It stands about 16 inches high and is a real eye catcher.


With Mardi Gras just around the corner, I thought these gals looks sweet on the case.

Took a couple of shots of my booth as I am now adding more for Valentines Day, St. Paddy's and spring in general.













This is a fantastic item of natural hair color swatches from France.  Used by a hair salon.  Very 1950s.






I found two lovely Williamsburg reproduction chandeliers two weekends ago and have them lit in my booth.  They look so good that I almost want to redecorate my home just around these lighting fixtures. Well made and waiting for a new home. 

I hope you enjoyed visiting my booth and case.  As always, I so enjoy your visits and your comments.  Here's to a gentle week. Sea Witch

Oh, what a wonderful visit I had looking at the things in your space. Going to antique shops and consignment shops is one of my favorite things to do. You have some beautiful, beautiful items. I WANT that art deco mermaid lamp!!! It is gorgeous. Being a Sea Witch, how can you part with it?? Your new case is grand and looks great with the things you put in it.
I have a large collection of items and I'm on the "wait list" for a space at one of the local consignment shops. I am SO excited to get in there.
I hope you have many, many sales of items in your space!

Hi Sea Witch....we must be two apples from the same tree. I love every single thing you have to offer. Love the Marie Antoinette type figurine, and those sunglasses are to die for. Your case looks fabulous....OK, I am a little jealous, I'll admit. I just loved the tour, and seeing all the glitz and bling. Window shopping is always such a pleasure. Hugs, Kathleen

Wow Sea Witch! You have some very lovely things for sale at your booth at Queen Of Hearts!. I'd definitely stop to browse if I were there as quite a few things caught my eye. You have everything arranged so well and so neatly. Just beautiful!

I know a blogger who loves all things that refer to Marie Antoinette and the statue in the second photo looks like her! I will direct Grace to your blog so she can see it. Do you ship items?
