a five day weekend and a two day work week? Really, Why can't it!!!! So many things to do and I know you are all just as busy with graduations, school year ending, preparing for the summer, etc. etc etc.
So after the tree that fell was finally removed from my front yard, chipped and hauled away, I made a road trip to Snellville and stopped in at Vintage Village to say hello to friends and dealers. There was also an additional shop that recently opened behind the "Village" ... "Joy's Vintage Thrift". Love it when there is another place to find treasure.
One of the personal touches you find at Vintage Village at this time of the year are fresh flowers throughout.
How fun and summery this bright orange water can is.
Another favorite dealer, Fox, always finds the coolest stuff. This neat Victorian fold up chair has been over painted with aqua blue and sports a cabbage roses seat. The best part, this nifty piece is only $45.00. I had to force myself to walk away from purchasing it as I just don't have the room in my home. But what a great piece.
Pressed and hammered aluminum pieces. The American staple found in homes throughout the 1950s. Still affordable, these are fast becoming the next hot collectible.
