More stuff!

This was my ad for my shop. I ran acrossed it looking for pictures. It makes me kinda sad, but it was really just toooo much. These fireking mugs are turquiose blending into white. I'd never seen them before!
These two boxes are plastic. The weird thing is I found out Russell Stovers used to come in them, cuz the sticker is still on em.

This lamp was sitting at Salvation Army for a week before I broke down and bought it. Cheapo, too.

This airline ad is a reproduction, but I like to put it up in the Summer in the bathroom.
Enough for one night...as you can see, I need some practice with the camera.

Oh, I think I have some of the same reproduction posters from that series of airline ads - I have Washington DC and Chicago. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for that Hawaii one!

Wow those mugs are amazing.

When I first decorated my art Studio, I used repro Art Deco ads and such.

Was your shop a "brick and mortar" shop? Why not try selling online? (If you don't already).

Yes, it was an actual store! I loved it, but-the rent insurance etc...etc...but most of all the location was difficult. Plus, I go to school, work all day then would go down to the shop at night and weekends. Too much. But I am thinking of selling online, just need some help getting started. I've tried to get a booth, but all that's open are the huge ones. Zootsuitmama
