Each day on the way to visit my Mom in the hospital, I pass a big old Victorian house with a sign that says ANTIQUES... ... and one that says Curious Goods.
Yesterday, I stopped as I was curious about the goods!
I am so glad I did!
The name of this place is Pretty Funny Vintage!
Piles of wonderful things!
Look at all this vintage jewelry!
Stephanie Ross....the owner and proprietress has a fabulous mix of antiques, vintage items and a few new items with vintage flair...
She travels monthly to New England and Pennsylvania... ... and with an experienced and discerning eye selects an ever changing assortment of eclectic and interesting antiques and vintage items for her shop.
Stephanie then enjoys displaying everything in artistic and creative vignettes...
Oh what fun it was to poke around in here!
There is a large collection of beautiful vintage clothes...
Loads of prints and plates and other ephemera...
An eclectic mix of smalls... ...some quirky...all fun!
Vintage toys, suitcases, wooden boxes, chests of drawers and industrial tables...
handmade and artsy things... ...lots of wonderful gift ideas here...
...and pearls. ...lots and lots of vintage poils!

I did get to the Flea Market this morning....met up with Mimi...aka...The Brocantess... We had fun searching for treasure together!
We also ran into my good friend Deanna of Gather in Ivoryton, CT. She was finding lots of goodies for her fabulous shop! I have to get back there again soon!

To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
