It was a beautiful sunny weekend but windy and cold. Dressing in layers is always a good idea when antiquing as well as bringing a great tote bag to carry your treasures home in. I had a comfy warm coat on; my favorite new tote bag and my Hell Bunny pinup dress so I was feeling fantastic for a day of antiquing.
It was a gorgeous day here in Santa Rosa, CA. Sun was shining and it was in the mid 60s. I had been spending much time at home recovering from a darn shoulder injury and for the first time in nearly a month I was feeling well enough to head out for some antiquing. We walked through a couple thrift stores but nothing was calling out to us and then we ended up at Whistle Stop Antiques and it is a small multi dealer mall that had lots and lots of shoppers. I had been to this shop before and nearly always find something and today was great as I found a few really neat items. These 3 mermaids are so cute….I haven’t seen faces like theirs before with lots of color on the cheeks and eyes as intricate as theirs. I am researching the maker of the mermaids and can see the 2 smaller ones are signed with what looks like “Doris King” and the bigger mermaid is signed “SL”. I also found an adorable vintage Valentine couple, pair of anthropomorphic fish salt and pepper shakers, a sweet table runner with embroidered poodles on each end as well as this really adorable vintage Lefton Miss Priss pitcher. We saw lots of Bakelite radios that I wouldn’t mind collecting but I need to win a lotto jackpot first as many have price tags in the thousands of dollars!! Hope you are all having a great weekend.
