There is comfort and ease in being organized. As clutter moves out and things get stored properly it frees the mind for FRESH thinking allowing new ideas to unfold!
After all that hard work I think we deserve a little break don’t you? Put on your walking shoes and come with me to the Antique Mall to see some great “STUFF”!
Wait! Before we go inside… Have you ever noticed how Antique Malls smell? Yeah, me too…. It’s a perfect mix of dust, must and rust… I LOVE IT! Let’s go!
This antique mall has individual houses with storefront real estate as well as smaller spaces for rent. With two floors I think you could find just about anything you had your heart set on and then some!
Quilts, throws, baskets, and vintage kitchen utensils adorn this store front.
I’m learning a lot about how to display items. I love how the old ladders are used for staging items in both of these booths!
It’s always fun to look at the artwork at an Antique Mall. There’s always such a wide range of subject matter.
I love this chest of drawers with its funky folk art paint!
Typing lessons anyone? Great vintage typewriter for a writer to have on display!
This shop keeper is a purist and displays only retro items from the 1950’s!
This lamp reminds me of MaryJane…
Well, here we are at my booth! Just a peak though!
Out front I have an antique sewing table that I purchased years ago at an Antique Mall in Reno, Nevada. An iron candle holder, a cornbread baking tray and a cute little vintage crystal lamp. A few vintage aprons hang on the door frame. I have a vintage drying rack on the way for displaying vintage tablecloths and throws.
Inside, a vintage pine dresser and mirror I painted, a hammered alluminum tray with a single pillow case and two vintage crystal lamps from the 1950’s.
A crochet doily softens the look.
I fell in love with this yellow and white crochet throw! I hope someone else does too! This vintage china cabinet below is Lady Violet. She is hand painted in green and purple metalic paint and shimmers with gold leaf stencil designs. I painted her a few years back and I’m hoping someone rescues her from my booth! The dealers at the mall call her the princess hutch.
That’s all for today sisters! I’ve got to get back to work!
Next time you’re in Plymouth, Ma. stop by The Antique Marketplace at 46 Main Street to check out all of the wonderful booths in the Antique Mall.
If you’ve been holding back the reins on your spring cleaning let’ em loose! Find a purpose for those unused/wanted items, store your keepsakes and make space for new ideas to flow in… Find a purpose for your “stuff “and you’ll be well on your way to finding your purpose too.
Now, go get your sparkle on!
Until our next shoreline visit!
BEACH BLESSINGS and happy de-cluttering!
