A week ago I finally got a chance to go to an aantiques store called "Auntie M's". It's located in Hopkins, which is just west of Minneapolis. The shop is known for it's great vintage Christmas displays, and last Friday they were having a 20% off sale!
I'm having an issue with the pics. You'll probably want to click on them to see better. :)
Every inch of the store looks something like this! Our dear friend Deb (Garage Sale Gal) has a booth there! I forgot to snap a pic of her booth, but be sure to click above and you can see it. I spy a couple things that I bought from her!
Can you even stand this case??? It's Magical!!!
Kitchy, glittery, velvet, beaded...
glass, wax, bottle brush, and spun cotton...it was all there!
This was in a little closet that you could step into!
One of the booths downstairs. Yes, there are 3 levels!
OK, here is what I came home with...
I was getting low on glass picks (for x-mas art) so I was happy to find these little ones. And that Snowman said "Erica, please don't leave me here". So I had to listen to him.
More cards for my collection! LOVE the Santa in the red car! And I thought that the Happy New Year one was fun! I think the cute girl with the braids is from Deb's booth.
And I had to get my spun cotton fix! The little match books are darling!
Two more stocking for my collection. Deb, I'm wondering if the Snowman one came from your booth.
It's so big and soft! I have looked at that same one of EBay for years, so I'm thrilled to have it.
I can never pass up vintage Christmas seals. I also found two cards of old jingle bells and cute green letters for an upcoming day of crafting with Tammy! Oh, and the tiniest Annalee Snowman ever!
This was the first thing I put into my basket, about 10 seconds after we walked in the door. I love that he's jointed and so cheerful looking!
You know how I always try to buy something to sell, in efforts to offset that days spending? Well this is the perfect piece! These Swedish linen wall hangings were done by Jerry Roupe. Earlier this year I found one at the Goodwill for $1.00, and sold it on EBay for about $50. This one was only $2.50 after the 20% off. So we'll see what it goes for! I'll have to let you guys know how I do!
Isn't it cute? If I was Swedish, I'd totally be keeping it! LOL
OK dear friends, I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving! Have fun getting out those Christmas decorations! Erica : )
