Gee, what was I thinking when I said I would be back with photos yesterday with so many things going on!? I'm back with a bunch of photos of items we are taking to the Portland Antique Expo Show but first I want to show you the new decoupage plate I made. I used 1 of the 4 images from our Floral Art Prints but I wanted it larger, so I just changed the dpi to 200 and it made it almost twice as large.
see my last Decoupage Tutorial where I did a couple of plates and wall switch frames. Look for flat plates rather than curved deep plates.
Okay, can anyone think up a cool idea for these black wooden stamp handles? I bought a bunch and 2 years later still have them - so I'm selling them but I'm not sure what to charge??
Here is my Mikasa dishes in the Precious Pattern. I saw the tea cups and saucer on replacements.com for $24.95 each. This is a 6 pc set with platter, bowl, cream, sugar, salt and pepper shakers. Not sure how much to ask but can start at $495.00 and lower price on Sunday if I still have them.
I bought a huge Dolly Dingle Collection from an estate sale and have about 90 of these jumbo sized Paper Dolls. Now that we have them scanned at high resolution I can sell the originals which should go for between $8.00 to $25.00 for the really old ones.
Some calling cards from a salesman's book. I'ts a beautiful little book and can you imagine sitting in your parlor picking out your calling cards to give out to prospective beaus?
I have a bunch of vintage fabric pieces like this old chenille
I bought these pieces from France and hope there will be people at the show that will pay $25.00 for a piece of antique fabric.
You can see more letterpress photos here and get our 2014 Free Printable Annual Calendars. I know - I got carried away collecting these cool old alphabet printing blocks. It's hard to believe these are what they had to use to print text with!
I'm getting rid of a bunch of stuff but the books are the hardest, There are so many I just can't part with, like the poems and children's books. Some have so many pictures it would take forever to scan them all so I have a zillion little post it notes. My dream is to have a wonderful library with cozy chairs so I can drink tea and read old books like these lovely rooms!
I hope to see some of you at the show but I know know many people live too far away so I will take a bunch of photos and do a link on my Pintrest Flea Market and Show Board where I linked to my Paris and Boston Flea Market adventures.
