The name of my blog has changed to match the name of my Etsy shop Andy's Vintage Attic. The URL has not changed for the blog.

Recent Discoveries

These are a few of the things I've picked up lately. I'm
not sure if I will take them all to shop or save some for
the Sept. 12th Vintage Gathering. How many of you
remember the 60's purse at the bottom?

I seem to have a "thing" for small plates. These two with
the flowers are so happy. And the pink doll bed with the
kitties is too cute.

These books are a riot! How to Attract Men looks like the
60's and was published in Portland, OR. The Married
Woman's Bill of Rights has a copyright of 1943. I may
have to read this one for a few laughs.

This little gem has no date but the pictures appear to
be 20's to 30's. Dr. Pierce will sell you his "Favorite
Prescription" (in tablet or liquid form). It is an herbal
tonic especially recommended for the chronic
weaknesses of women. Has been found beneficial
in cases of morning sickness, hysteria and nervousness.
All this for 65 cents for the small size tablets.

Now I need to get things ready for the shop and also
the Vintage Gathering at Beyond the Garden Gate
on Sept. 12th. More on that soon,

What a riot...I especially liked the "hysteria"
part. ~You a woman after my own heart...who loves to hunt for "delightful clutter". ~~
