Sooo.... I want to share this Facebook Shop that I LOVE!
I started following the proprietor Darleen Lynde on twitter (DarDarA1) when she posted this vintage Maximal Art collage pin. Tweet tweet tweet tweet, like birds singing. One tweet after the next announces some amazing little treasure, that made me think, .... Ohhhh, I really need that?
From rhinestone necklaces to a rooster pewter chocolate mold, I'm intrigued by it all. You have to move quickly though, as soon as it post on twitter, ebay, or facebook, it's snatched up! So if you like it, ya gotta buy it, it won't be there tomorrow!
When asked about how she chooses/buys those treasures for her store.....
"Truthfully, it's not a very scientific method! LOL! I was lucky enough to buy out three different houses and one attic, here in the Berkshires. I was allowed to come in before anyone else and purchase whatever I wanted, since these were acquaintances of mine and they trusted me to treat them fairly. The moral of this story is that I have a HUGE inventory, with every kind of antique or collectible imaginable, so I just go shopping in my cupboards or attic, and list whatever strikes me at that moment. Gotta say I'm kind of spoiled in that respect! I've been in the business with my guy for years, selling folk art, weathervanes, and antiques in general. I do this as a sideline, so I get to do pretty much what I want. Also, while I have enough inventory to probably last me the rest of my life, I can't resist shopping for more (that's the realllllly fun part!), so sometimes I'm so enthralled with something that I've just purchased and it takes precedence over existing items."
Darlene was lucky enough to buy out THREE different houses AND an attic in the Berkshires! LOL And she calls that kind of spoiled! Well... I guess that is KIND of spoiled. (smile)
