Paper Dolls for Boys

Raising 2 crafty boys and thrifting every chance I get.

Uh… November 29, 2009

so, remember me blathering on about being too busy?  Well I didn’t.  My friend Hannah and I just went in together on a booth at a local antiques cooperative.  Zoinks.  It’s a good outlet, right?!!!  Like my etsy shop without all the annoying shipping hassle.

So if you are a MA person and want to check out our wares, drop by  the Massachusetts Antiques Cooperative, 100 Felton Street, Waltham and go to town.  We’re the cool booth (at least that’s what our mothers think).

Update: Here are new photos of our space.  We will eventually have vintage Valentines and other bits and bobs on that divider screen but for now it’s covering up the neighboring stall’s grungy screen.  One of the guys that works there walked by and said, “It looks like somebody lives there.”  We were pumped as that was what we were going for.   Second only to, “It looks like somebody shops there.”!

Short of buying it, we still can’t figure out how to cover up the neighbors art work on the other side.

The beginnings of our booth.

It’s not that fuzzy in real life.  We have work to do to make it more cozy and inviting but we’re proud of our start!

Went to the last flea market of the year in Rowley this morning.  SUPER SCORES.

Salty wants you to SHOP.

These are rusted to perfection.

A pair of these for a ridiculous price.  They are NOT leaving my house though.  Not for a good long while.

Close up of one side of our “booth”.  We are working on some partition ideas.  Anyone out there who has a booth, we’d love any tips you had to offer!

Cheers and goodnight!

  1. Great finds, that fabric and the plates, sigh! Your booth looks fab, is that a vintage aqua record player I see on the shelf, you lucky woman, I am DYING for one of those!

    Wow. You have a LOT of cool stuff. I would have a very hard time deciding on which treasures to take home. Good Luck!

    I don’t know how you can get rid of any of that. How much FUN are you going to have??

    Good luck on your new venture! Can’t wait to go shopping with you to add stock to your store when it empties out, which I am sure will be soon!
