Vintage Vibe: April Finds

It's been a busy month for us at the shop and lots of shiny new items have arrived but a steady stream of amazing vintage and antique items have appeared too!  We have out of state buying trips scheduled in both May and June - so, keep watch for even more one of a kind and unique finds.  The above mirror is actually a re-purposed creation using old bead board with original chippy paint; I just adore this piece!

Look at this soup tureen!  It's gorgeous and includes platter, lid, and ceramic spoon.  It actually isn't terribly old as it's dated 1982 (ok for some people that might sound like ages ago, for me it was yesterday).  Newly vintage and with a small chip (that you can totally turn that piece around), I think, makes this piece a nice functional acquisition that you won't be afraid to use.

Also, from the early 80's is "Le Mouton" - how ridiculously cute?!  Nevermind that he's a highly collectible decorative figure from gift company Dept. 56, he's sooooo adorable.  Perfect for a knitter or crocheter, I think.
