Okay winter got here was cold the last few days, woke up to the mid twenties etc. Highs are like top end of the 30's. Not what I like at all. Don't see many flea markets in the near future unless we get a few warm days. Just can't do that cold weather stuff anymore. Only things I did outside was go to the post office and the food store.
Added some neat lanterns and an oil lamp to the shop last week that I forgot to post here. Monday I bought a nice little lot of sterling silver goodies and other items. Some of the silver will go into my New Years Day Auction and some went into the shop. Also starting to dig into the postcard and pinback button pile. So I'll probably be pounding on the keyboard for the next couple of weeks.
Still stocking the shop for the holiday season that I'm not sure is going to happen, but ya gotta think positive, plus when the price is right ya gotta buy it.
A few new shop additions.
