Flower Power

Sorry that wasn't able to get to write a blog post last week, it's been a crazy week! My daughter, Avery,  was once again in the ER, this time for an abscess on her tonsil, so she is going in for a tonsillectomy next week. (UGH!)
Today I was at my 10 year old son, Evan's art show. It was at Whole Foods, which is always one of his more successful venues. He did fabulous as always. He just started an instagram account. If you love some unusual creature art, follow him @Evandgatscher.

The previous two weeks have been full of groovy flower power finds. A little hippie love, can't complain!

I stumbled upon this sheet set. I was okay with the price, but then when the lady was ringing them up, apparently the price was per sheet, Flat sheet and fitted sheet. So I ended up paying twice as I initially thought. Still a good deal, I think. I have just never bought or sold vintage sheets, so I don't know what to expect. With that being said, they are bringing in tons of views, so imagine that they will sell pretty quickly!


 
 
Seriously, these look they just came off of Marsha Brady's bed!
(Hmmm...maybe they did?). Queen size flat and fitted sheet!
 
Interested? Available------->HERE
 
 
I cannot say that I have been particularly successful with cheese trays, and perhaps I need to add them to my "stop buying" list, along with ashtrays, fondue pots and single mugs. But sometimes I just can't help myself......
 

I fell in love with the orange and red floral tile in the middle. Retro yum yum!

Give cheese servers some love, take her home with you!
Available--------------->HERE!



My eyes nearly popped out of my face when I came across this retro beauty!


Vintage hair dryer, this contraption opens up to reveal a dryer cap with an adjustable arm. It's a whole lot of stuff in this container! Totally works, because back then, things stayed working for a long time. I have  never come across a vintage rotary phone that doesn't work. Good sturdy stuff back then! (I have yet to find a mobile phone that works for over 2 years).

Got wet hair that needs some drying?
Lady Dazey is available-------->HERE!



I purchased these on a whim. And by "whim", I mean, "What the hell was I thinking?"



I really like the retro appeal of them, but I don't know what they are supposed to be......They both have the hole on the bottom with stoppers like they are banks, but only one of them has a coin slot. There is the big giant girl, and a small version of her in the car.....But I just sort of pictured them on a book case in a retro bedroom....and I don't know, I thought they would look pretty cool.

Would you like to take them home with you?

Available---------->HERE!


I was thrilled when I discovered this dish set! I had this exact collection last year and it received more views than anything and sold quickly. I told myself that if I ever come across this set again, just snatch it up. Snatch it I did!



Sheffield Serenade set, desirable in the Mid Century community. I have this set pictured and another set that I haven't yet posted.

Dinner party time?
Available--------------------->HERE!



I am still listing lots of goodies! My shopping will be put on  hold for a few weeks while I stay home with Avery as she recovers from surgery. I am trying to stock up now, since I will have plenty of time to list items while I stay home. I will try not to hog all of her ice cream, it will be challenging to say the least!


Now for the independent business of the week! I have no idea how I initially stumbled upon this shop on Etsy, but once I did, I was hooked! I am in awe with the workmanship, the detail, the whimsy and creativity! Now this is the gift you give to someone who has everything, or a gift for bosses/secretary day. I am so smitten with these, you can even purchase one for me!
