I'm Here, I Really Am

Once again I find myself with way too much going on. I'm trying to prioritize, but first I need to organize. My clocks are starting to sell at the consignment shop, we opened Four Dog Vintage and are trying to add more items every week, I'm trying to keep Four Dog Day happy and our little grandson is due in a few weeks! The sign I have on my bulletin board at work says SLOW DOWN AND BREATHE....and it applies to home as well as at work!

Irv and I went to a big flea market on Sunday. We found some wonderful new things for Four Dog Vintage, but right now it is all over my house in varying stages of being cleaned, repaired and prepared for sale. I think there are things in every room of my tiny little house right now! I think we did a good job. Here is what we found....and it will hopefully all be listed this coming weekend.

The flea market started at 6:00 a.m. and we were there!

It was interesting to see how everyone displayed their wares.

I was a little disturbed by the amount of food items people were selling.....it made me wonder where they got it....and people were buying it like crazy. Ewwwwww...no thanks!

Some people just put their stuff on tarps right on the ground! It didn't make it very easy to look at what they had to sell to be honest with you.

Here are the things we bought.....this amazing antique toaster in excellent condition. Isn't it just the cutest thing ever?

A very old and rusty lunch box. Not sure why, but I have a thing about rusty metal!

This fabulous PINK clock that I am so in love with!

This wood sewing kit. It is actually full of old thread and needles. It's great!

So how 50's is this funky yellow tea set? Can you believe this? Just so cool!

This old mail box that Irv will be working on. It's a little bent and it makes it hard to open and close.

This darling little suit case....also in need of a tiny bit of repair, but I'm not worried....Irv is great at that kind of stuff! Right honey?

I also have a thing for shiny metal and I love these. I need a new one, so I just might keep it!

Who can resist an avocado colored bowl? Not me obviously!

Now we have to get it all ready and into Four Dog Vintage! Hope you have a great week. I'll be popping in to read some blogs later this evening if I don't fall asleep first!

As I am reading/looking at the pictures. I am saying OH! I love the pink clock, oh and the bowl, and the tea set. You got some great things!!!

The pink clock is my favorite!! Also the avocado bowl is pretty! Aubrey and I looked at some old toasters like that over the weekend and they can get a little pricey!! (good job!)

I don't think I would like the tarps on the ground either. Did you ever read the post about us going to our first auction? They were auctioning food and we got grossed out and got a bad case of the giggles.

You are a gal on a mission, I see. The five year plan as I recall.

Nice job at the flea market. I love the bowl and the colander. The toaster is great, too. Here's hoping you get some great sales in return for your hard work.

You have a great eye...all the pieces you chose are wonderful. Sounds like you and Irv are having a good time.
