The experience made me remember that I have a long history of thrifting. I spent part of my childhood rummaging through thrift stores with my mother. She would buy things for a nickel and then dream of selling it for a profit. Of course there wasn't eBay or Storenvy around back then so she didn't have any way of reselling these items easily. I feel like I'm bringing her dream around full circle by having my Stuff to Treasure store.
Here are a few things that I found in my attic:
I designed this packaging when I worked for this company.
My friend worked for Matchbox when this came out.
A set of six drinking glasses with the RCA logo. Dad got these as a promotion item through RCA.
These were my mother's old Japanese silver and glass dresser jars. I can't read the Japanese hallmark.
An old Japanese porcelain vase. Again, I can't read the Japanese markings.
My mother was going to throw out these food color jars and I saved them because they were so cute.
Mom collected a few pieces of Carnival ware.
I saved these 7up bottles from the 60s. Don't even ask me why.
Old, French perfume bottle that my mother had. The gold-leaf bottle looks so amazing.
I was into toys, my dad had connections with RCA and my mom collected glass pieces. At least now I can have some fun looking into the history of these items. And many of these pieces will go into my store soon. I already added a lot of new items so please stop by often and take a look.
I hope everyone had a great beginning to the new year. Let's go thrifting and recycle the fun!
