Leaving our library the other day with my usual stack of books, I spotted a little sign out of the corner of my eye announcing our village's historical society was hosting a 'trinkets and treasures' sale at 9:00 the following day. Intrigued, I resolved to return.
Arriving at 8:45, I eagerly joined a few people in line. The doors soon opened, and I followed my fellow lemmings inside. While most of what was offered was of the vintage photograph, newspapers, periodicals and other paper ephemera variety, there were a few odds and ends of interest.
A heavy earthenware green pitcher, a jadeite nutmeg shaker, a couple of sweet little hand-painted plates, a vintage Madonna planter, and last but not least, vintage circle pins.
Such a sweet Mary, I couldn't resist.
I adore circle pins. Retro with a simple twist, and perfectly suited for daily wear.
Some darling 1920's dollhouse furniture was available, but, alas, was priced out of my reach. I thought of you, Kim, when I saw it...
And, of course, now I can't get it out of my mind. Isn't that always the way?
