Shop Small Saturday!

The Lula Q Marketplace was so great last weekend!!   It was a great place for some early Small Shop shopping! Even so, a few things came home with me.  And a few 'new to me items I just couldn't resist from the other vendors!
After all the things we have to be grateful for this past week, I hope you take the opportunity to pay forward some of that warm feeling inside by doing some of your holiday or day to day shopping at a local business.  Whether that be today, the official Shop Small Saturday, or any day, your local community sees more bang for your buck at local stores and shops, and crafters/ furniture painters who sell from their blog!  For the fun of shopping small, I've made these prices a little smaller as well!

Classy Distressed Black Bookshelf - SOLD

Measures:  35 wide, 8 deep, 251/2 in height
Solid wood, sturdy, polyurethane protected finish 

Vintage double layer paper wreath ~available by ordering
Measures 15 inches in diameter

Vintage radio $28
A great piece to add texture to your vignette!  Sad, buttons are missing, but adds charm whether opened or closed ( see above).

Creamy ironstone $12 for 3 pieces 
(Or $4 each)

2 have identifying marks on the bottom.  Use them in your holiday decorating to corral small items together or add dimension. Tie them up with a pretty bow and give to a vintage loving lady! The tree candles are just to give you an idea~they'll be happy at my home this season.

Vintage book stack $4
Seriously, these all have holes in the center ( I wonder about the story there?!) sweetly disguised by burlap~re-gracing at its best!  

Vintage 3 ring binders $4 each
Fabulous patina!  One is filled with 'husbandry' ideas: clips of newspaper articles about ham radio and such.  The other is just waiting for your journaling, ideas, and creativity!  

They also look awesome on a shelf!

Items and musings from a local gal!
Call or text to purchase, local pick-up in Chubbuck, Idaho.  208-390-8653

Petite Vintage Dresser & Door {I'm going to Lula Q Market}

Santa Baby, 
       put something vintage under the tree,
for me….
I've been an angel all year!

I dont' mean to rush the season, but there is snow on the ground and shopping in the air!
Lula Q Marketplace is just days away, or in my mind…. just a few late nights to finish up a few more items!
These beauties are headed to the market, but I will not be offering any pre-sales, holds, or puppy-guarding.  (Sorry, but it's the only fair and clear option I came up with.)

I do hope you join us!

Bookshelf : before & sneak headed to Lula Q

Well, let's face it, my before shots could use improvement.
That said, I usually think about taking the before shot after the first coat of paint, so let's call this an improvement, OK?

With the cooler temperatures in the evening, I moved the painting in.  The slippers add a nice touch, but I bet the chair really caught your eye.  Can you believe that was a score from the last flea market?  I just love it and it hangs with my vintage couch sooo well! (

Well, a sneak anyway.  

I like the strength of the black on this solid piece, with the warmth and wear of the distressing.  
I'll be taking it to the Lula Q Marketplace , in just 2 weeks, along with vintage finds, paper wreaths, and found goods.   I'll keep sharing posts from other vendors as well as giveaway info from Lula Q on Facebook & Instagram.

Make a plan to come, because I just know you'll be sad if you miss it!
