Advertising Collectibles

I have always loved old advertising tins and bottles.  The graphics, fonts and colors are wonderful.  Start your own collection or spice up your displays.  Check our Etsy shop for future listings of these small pieces of history.

We had a taste of spring, but we are now back to rain, cold wind and a chance of snow.  So, when will spring really return?

Vintage Wooden Hangers

I love the look of wooden advertising hangers.  The wonderful patina, interesting fonts and different shapes make them a fun collectible.  You can still find them at antique stores and flea markets at a reasonable price.  Hang them from a peg rack for a unique display - alone, or with a vintage garment.  You could also include a hanger with a gift of clothing. We currently have two hangers for sale in our Etsy shop.

First Signs of Spring

Despite the fact that we still have snow on the ground, the robins have arrived, providing our first sign of spring.  Another sign: it's time to spring forward and set your clocks ahead...

Trip to Kane County Flea Market

Despite the blustery winter day, we managed to purchase lots of unique finds at the Kane County Flea Market on Saturday.  Take a peek at our Etsy shop this coming week for our newest offerings.

After a bit of a warm spell, we did not expect such cold weather.  Our thoughts turned to the snow disappearing and spring blooming once again...
