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.

Some New Finds

My shopping for the week is over
so here are some of the things I
found while going to thrift stores
and garage/estate sales. The pink
doll bed is the 3rd pink doll bed
I have found recently.

Inside the little bed is a box
full of old brown bottles. It
is a mix of bottles with lids
and bottles with droppers.

I'm not sure I can part with
this magazine rack with the
green parrot. It is primitive
and colorful and begs to
be used.

I found this old tin at an estate
sale. It seems quaint, and
fancy, and whimsical all at

I am constantly amazed at the
quantity of "stuff" in our lives.
And yet we acquire more and more.
Since starting Andy's Attic I find that
I spend very little time in stores with
new merchandise. That fact pleases me
because I think recycling and re purposing
is very important. My whole life has been
spent around gently used things (of course
mixed with new). I find comfort in
knowing someone else out there got use
out of something that I am now using. Or
someone else appreciated the beauty of
a picture or the color of a bowl. And, am I
the only one who has gone to an estate sale
and wished I could have known the person
who lived there?

Hope the weekend is a good one, Annette

That's why I love old things, to think about the people that used them...oh the stories our treasured items could tell if only they could talk!

of course like your website but you have to check the spelling
on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to
tell the truth however I'll certainly come again again.
