Aisles


Schedules back to familiar times and lists full of achievable task I can now get back to my favorite shops. One disappointed and one did not. 


Sherbet colors with glitter sprinkles.


A tray to corral desk clutter.


Pink case to hold supplies and a pack of bride place cards.


I never find doll clothes...and then I turned down the aisle and there they were a dollar each.


Feedsacks in shades of teal and pink.


Tiny flecks of vintage Christmas.


Super cute Happy Birthday record.


...the other side.


At the other store I saw a lot of things I loved.  Like this beautiful thermos. Then I had a little sticker price shock and slowly walked away.


There were some darling ideas. Like little people in baby food jars. Again...$4.50 a pop...walk away from the DIY.


I decided to take a few pictures and emulate them myself. I have tons of jars at home...for free.


Spray paint and some old plastic characters...thrift store here I come.

Thanks for sharing your finds and pictures. I really love the feedsack. I've seen the painted animals and jar lids on Pinterest. So cute!

What a great shop! Is it an antique store? The people in the jars is a great idea. Love the doll clothes.

Love the finds you left behind and love the ones you brought home even more! That tray is just gorgeous and funny thing, I don't really care much for dolls but I do love doll clothes. A very good shopping day I would say!

You know I'm loving your vintage Christmas flecks! And those animals on the lids of the jars really make me laugh for some reason -- great mix of cute, clever and funny!

Love all of your finds but you probably can guess what I loved the best.

vivian said...

lots of good stuff! I like the doll dresses. I have a quilt kit that I bought a couple years ago called doll dresses. someday oh yes.. someday.. I'm.. going... to.. have someone make it for me! lol.. did you think I was going to say that I was going to make it? As soon as I started cutting some of the pieces out, I made mistakes and got mad.. packed it up and knew that I would have to get someone else to do it! LOL!!

have a great day my friend!

Your doll clothes are just darling and your picture record is just delightful. I've not seen that one. Cute ideas with the jars and the fisher price little people. Thanks for taking us along shopping!

I love all of your finds. The doll clothes are so cute... I also like the jars with the toys on top. Those would be cute Xmas presents.

So many adorable things!
Love the feedsacks! :0)

Love that pink case and the doll clothes, Renee! The clothes look like they are in really good condition, too. I don't often see them either, but I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for them now. I just did a suitcase makeover for my granddaughter to hold her baby dolls in. She's still very young yet {2}, but it would be great to have some clothes in with her dolls to play with.

I love old homemade doll clothes, I buy them whenever I can find them at a reasonable price.

I made some of those jars last Christmas from Peanut Butter jars for my great nieces and they were a huge hit! I put crayons in some, doll shoes and accessories in another, farm animals in one and hair bows in another all with pink and pale green painted lids to match the bedroom with cute little figures on top. Cute as can be. I think they would be super to hold candy too!

Blessings

Mecky said...

Oh that case is adorable! I love the doll clothes!! I never see then, either.
I would have to pass on the little People in the jar for that price!!

Love those feedsacks, too!!

Stay cool today!!!

A Vintage Chic said...

LOVE your finds, Renee! You always find the loveliest things...Would love to find one of those make-up kits--vintage perfection!

Love the jar idea--will have to give that a go, too!

Wishing you the most wonderful day, dear friend!

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

Love that doll case! Ya know, I never see doll clothes. It makes me think I don't look hard enough...

Nan said...

Renee I just love love those doll clothes and case you found also the sweet feedsacks so darling I bet you're having fun now!

janice15 said...

Doll clothes are usually not found with me either.. I hate when you see something that you really like then the price is to crazy...I sometimes wonder what folks think...have a great afternoon with love Janice

Old Fashioned Gal said...

What lovely finds! So sweet!
Hope you're having a wonderful week! :)

tammyCA said...

I'm shocked that those doll dresses were $1 ea....any shop out here would have them at $15 ea. & they'd probably have moth holes. Everything out here is outrageously priced.
But, I sure love the Jr. Miss case...so cute & from my time...it's all so cute.

mrsmcbee said...

I Just love, love,love the feedsacks, lucky you, lucky find!! I am always on the lookout for feedsacks, far and few between in my neck of the woods, the pacific northwest, in the country.

GardenofDaisies said...

Oh my goodness, Renee, I know exactly what aisle you were on. I was just at that store a week or so ago and saw that pink dolly dress and the little pink make up bag too. They made me think of you and Kim. (I can't go anywhere anymore without my blogging friends popping into my head.)

Marci said...

Great stuff Renee! What stores where you at? My mom and I just opened a booth at Lone Elm. Really fun!

donna said...

What great finds. Love the feed sacks. You can never go wrong with those.
