I want to hear the faint crackle with the music.
I want a reason to buy the gobs of old (and cheap!) records I find on my outings.
I know nothing about electronics, and I really don't care to know anything about them.
I found a great article about finding and restoring old turntables and what to look for when buying them. And why vintage can be better than new.
How cute is this retro player for sale at vintage store Thrush:
Unfortunately, I can't afford the one below, but I'm dying for this silver turntable/sideboard/bar. This amazing sideboard is for sale by alananewhouse.
This is more like it.
Small, modern and ultra cool.
And pretty much any dessert on the planet.
As long as there is no coconut in it.
Coconut has this way of never leaving once it gets into your mouth.
It just hangs around, annoyingly.
Like that horrible song you get stuck in your head.
Yummy, colorful, coconut free, candy colored toys.
I love the illustrations in old children's books. These books from the 60s are in near perfect condition. They look like they were never read.
I love the miniature and the oversized. Like the little chair above and the enormous spoon/fork below.
I had to add a little Sweet Love color:
Speaking of color, another find:
I am a disaster.
I am missing the part in my brain that tells me to put stuff away in an organized manner.
I am also missing the part in my brain that tells me to stop eating dessert.
I have tripped over my postage scale several times. Have I moved it? No.
This is my art/jewelry studio/photography studio/Sweet Love Vintage office/storage area.
And I keep bringing more stuff in.
Like these things that I found today:
Hot damn I love color.
Can you tell?
I am peeing my pants with excitement over these:
In my shop soon........
