Expanding the Shop
August 15, 2011 § 4 Comments
Over the years, I have developed a huge love for all things vintage and antique. Old things are charming. There is a certain character found in 19th century crown molding that simply doesn’t compare to modern building standards. These items have something that new items do not. They have history. They tell romantic stories about the past. I have spent hours in local Goodwill stores, snagged items from the neighbor’s trash and pilfered through piles of goodies at antique auctions just to hear their tales. My track record in window-shopping is not very successful.
That being said, I find myself at a crossroads. I now have more visual aids and photography props than are reasonable. You may recognize a few of these items from listing photographs on Etsy! In order to maintain some sort of organization in the studio (and some sanity over my life) I must either purge the older articles to make room for new. . . or the dreaded alternative, hang up my scavenging hat. Thankfully I have chosen the earlier! This means the store will be expanding.
MagpieTree will now be offering an array of vintage and antique findings from my very own personal collection! Although I am sad to see them go, I know they will all receive excellent homes. This collection of treasures has brought me great joy and has offered me fond memories. Now I offer them, in all of their charm, to you their new keepers.
Vintage and antique items will be listed in the shop over the course of the next few weeks. Be on the lookout for porcelain teacups and saucers, vintage jewelry boxes and jewelry findings.
