2014 at its end

2014 is close to its end; as always there were highs and lows, happiness and sorrow, gain and loss.
Treasures from my collections were purchased and shipped all over the world; I've diversified my stock and I've picked many items waiting to be shown in 2015.
I've been featured in Homespun Magazine Australia issue of December (page 65) along with other few vintage lovers.

I've become older and wiser (I hope, lol), met new friends, visit old ones, read more than 40 books and generally, tried to find peace of mind and meaning in life.
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope all of us to have a great 2015, and I'm looking forward to share new lovely finds with you xxxx

October Sale!

More items as usually for this October sale; a new season, a wind of change and my wish to bring more antiques, these are few of the reasons for my autumn offer; also I'm trying to make more items affordable for more buyers (considering the rise in postal charges), especially the useful ones as kitchenalia, sewing supplies, appliqués and crochet and few others.

I offer 12 items in the Sale section; more quirky items could be found in different categories from my shop. Enjoy!

SPOTLIGHT: Vintages7


Small, but charming Vintages7 is own by Olivia Johansen, a collector of quirky unique items; here you could find silver and gold jewellery, vintage clothes, old cameras, serving items, kitchenalia and some very interesting miscellaneous finds, in a word - quality.
My favourite is this wooden toy, a remembrance of old "good" days.

Yes, I know, it's not Easter coming soon but Christmas, is just that one has to buy when she can find something nice; it is a vintage German toy mainly wooden and paper mounted on a little "harmonica" that makes sounds when pressed, cute!

A lovely image in a silver frame (European silver; for me it doesn't matter if it is sterling silver or not, maybe I'm not interested to sell or melt it down but to keep and enjoy it every day).

A lovely enamelled pin with a real pearl; unfortunately the clasp is missing, still charming.

Mmmmmm, custom jewellery buttons, glass and mother of pearl, they are tiny (I must thank to my friend Susan who found them for me).

None of these is for sale (yet); as soon as I decide to sell them they will be listed in my shop or on my page.

SPOTLIGHT: The Retroscope, Greek Vintage Finds

The Retroscope
From Greece Sophia Kappa brings an eclectic collection of pottery, jewellery, home décor, folk art, curios and collectables; each of them is inspiring and beautiful.
It is a shop of miscellaneous finds expanding by the day with the help of her many friends and relatives who bring their old stuff to fill the shop; looking at these old items so decorative and charming you could sense a warm feeling of community and family.
With the winter celebrations not so far away maybe it is a good idea to start buying presents; this shop offers you more than one idea. Enjoy!

My First Car Boot Sale Ever

On Sunday I attended a car boot sale organized by the Rotary Club of Gibraltar in aid of PAAMOA, a charity that arranges classes for the elderly in Gibraltar.
I'm not a market/fair/car boot sale girl but I must admit I've really enjoyed it. I've been lucky to have a spot between two friends, we had good weather (a little bit too hot though), we've sold few nice items, all in all a good day out.
I'm sorry I haven't got pictures, maybe any new adventure should be visual documented, stored here then dig out in my old age to make me smile.
I've bought few little things, to be fair only three, lol, as I tried hard not to leave my spot and go to browse; I'm trying to de-clutter waiting for a well deserved change of address; yesterday I've sold mostly clothes, shoes and some crockery.
Here they are all my three buys for a total of £ 2.00 (I was really good as I've already told you, lol).

The Shadows with 14 tracks from 1961-1964

Two pretty scented dresses for my wardrobe

And three pretty blue & white decorative ceramic balls
