Hello everyone, my name is Renee and I have and addiction. I am addicted to vintage. Ahhh, that feels good to get off my chest. I don't know where my addiction came from, maybe it was watching too many Doris Day/ Rock Hudson movie genres or daydreaming I had the style of Jackie-O or could it be that I had grandmothers who had a style all their own that made me fall in love with all things vintage. Me thinks it was all of the above more especially my grandmothers. No matter how I got here I'm… Continue

I'd like to share a morning coffee piece that I wrote for my website. I sometimes wonder why on earth I was pulled into becoming an antiques merchant. We really do things differently!!
to the quite early morning hours of the day, there's always time for coffee and quiet contemplation. One day, as I was reading the morning dose of doom --aka the newspaper-- it occurred to me that we merchants in the antiques business attempt to thrive in the toughest business on… Continue

I wrote a blog post yesterday about the differences in styles in any given twenty year span. (Well, I should say I finished
it yesterday! I started it a few days ago, and just got around to publishing it yesterday.) I wrote it after thinking a lot about the Etsy decision to make Vintage twenty years old or more.
Here it is:
I would love to hear what any of you think about it, too.… Continue

Over the course of a young lifetime, I was witness to an amazing array of furniture and glassware, as well as the odd, the unusual and the sublime. While both Mom and Dad bought things, it was Mom who generally purchased the "bizarre" items...items that would raise most people's eyebrows...a taxidermied chicken (it did look cute nesting in a basket in her kitchen), a wall mounted pig castrator (she made it into a fun & kitschy flower planter), several life -sized "Johnny Walker Red" (Scotch… Continue

I am trying to focus on taking photos to upload to my etsy (odetojune.etsy.com) for my first listings.....of course, I became distracted.
( a common problem)
I have posted a few vignettes from my house with collections amassed on shelves and desktops. Treasures inherited, found, and hoarded. Each item has a memory associated with it - where I was when I found it, bought it, carted it home. Family memories of holiday dinners on china, my mother June on the phone at her desk, the… Continue

This is the redhead I wish I were, or maybe thought I was when I was younger-- so I am putting her face on here instead of mine so that I can continue to fantasize!
I hope that anyone who loves old sheet music from before 1930, or just loves romantic ephemera, will contact me if they are looking for a particular title or subject matter. I used to have LOTS more, but love having an excuse to look through what is left one more time. It think I only have four or five hundred sheets… Continue

When I was growing up, one thing I noticed about my family in comparison to others was that almost all of our furniture and accessories had "Names". NO, REALLY! Everyone else I knew had "the couch in the family room" or "the chair in the hallway." Not us! We had, among others, the "Windsor Chairs," "the Queen Anne Tall Boy" and the "Kerr Sterling Vanity Set." If it wasn't named after someone, then it was referred to based on its construction..."The Walnut Pie Safe," the "Cherry Thread Chest,"… Continue

$2554... for 6 mos... for a 4 room house... no garage... 60x100 property... New York is soooo expensive... house is 'assessed' @ 2 x what it could sell for... grievance has been filed for a year... Town drags its feet... doesn't want to reduce taxes because 'no child left behind' is unfunded & school taxes are out of control here... too many teachers per class... too few students per class... too many extras for kids that do not help them learn... plus, my town has a huge influx of… Continue

I'm in the season of my life when childbirth is almost certainly out of the question and I've been advised that mood swings, night sweats and temporary insanity figure heavily in my near future. I can't remember a time when items of antique and vintage origin weren't an integral part of my existence.
I was raised by two wonderfully creative parents who also happened to be lifelong antiques collectors, dealers and appraisers. I remember my young life as a succession of antiques shows,… Continue

I just joined the wonderful world of Vintage Village this afternoon. A few minutes later, I received a nice email that notified me that VintagePal (fictitious name) just asked me to become a “friend.” Click here to accept… I clicked “accept” and it says, “VintagePal is now your friend.”
If that don’t beat all! I can just click a button and make anyone who asks (and hopefully those I invite) my friend! Life would be so much simpler that way! Do away with all the posturing and… Continue

This site allows sellers to register where they sell their items at. Its Free! Check it out! I'm registered on there as iona847, iona406, and iona75. This is a great way for sellers to advertise and for buyers to find out all the places their favorite sellers are on. It only takes a few minutes to register.

I have been listing some buttons in my Allbutton
shop on Etsy the last couple days and it reminded me of my memories with buttons.
When I was a child my mother played a game with me. She use to hide buttons for me to find. She seemed to have the best buttons because I remember wanting to find certain ones more. They were big and bright and I am sure it kept me occupied for quite a while so she could get other things done! This has remained… Continue

I got a great deal on Quick Books Pro last week at staples- free after rebate.

Has anyone else use it? I have some questions about Paypal & fees.
Or better yes, what's your experience with QB

From USATODAY (11/7/2005)
Why do magpies like shiny things? Because magpies are intelligent, curious beings that like to explore. Shiny things interest them as toys, play-pretties, or something to stash away. They like to hoard.
Please help me, if you buy my shiny things, then I will be forced to listed more from my stash.
This will make my partner & kids very happy.
