A month or so ago....I was browsing about Joan's Etsy Shop ...that would be Joan from Anything Goes Here...
...and was delighted to find 3 small shell boxes.
I already have one of these delicate little cases...
I think they may have been made to hold rosary beads.
In any case, I bought the three and now I have a collection!
Joan likes to buy and sell anything in multiples.
I couldn't resist these little wooden Bingo balls.
Yes, I found my number!
I love to look at Joan's shop as she has so many interesting everyday items which she arranges and photographs in clever ways.
Joan has been an antique dealer for a very long time. She is very knowledgeable and a big collector herself. She only recently opened her Etsy shop and because I would like to open my own one day as well...I asked her if I could do an interview with her... on her Etsy selling experiences. She agreed and if you would like to read the interview ... I have posted it to The Inspiration Studio.
Probably my favorite find to date in Joan's shop are these Victorian porcelain tacks.
The bottle on the right is marked Calder's Dentine.
Don't the tacks look like little white teeth?
I don't recall ever seeing porcelain tacks like these before.
Where in the world did you ever find these Joan?
I am on my way to Warrensburg early Saturday morning...
to their annual town wide yard sale.
The weather looks as if it will be perfect for spending a day poking around lots of junk!
I will be sure to take lots of pics and hopefully will find a bit of treasure!
Have a wonderful weekend!
