Please welcome …

I had an absolute deluge of advertisers come forward this weekend.  So over the next couple of weeks in addition to my regular posts I’m going to show off some of my advertisers.

You might be getting sick of me saying this, but it’s the truth … thank you for supporting my advertisers the way you have.  If you support my advertisers, you support me which allows me to continue writing this website which, hopefully, you enjoy.   It also allows me to buy the good composting garbage bags.  Not the ones that rot out and fall apart when you pull them out of the garbage can, leaving raw chicken bits and maggoty looking rice on the kitchen floor.

So!  As I was saying, please welcome Sunny Day Vintage!  I have a special affinity for her shop because it carries vintage goods.  Up until a couple of years ago I owned and ran a booth in an antique market.

Some of my favourite items in my house are things I was supposed to sell at my antique booth.  But didn’t because I was smart enough to hoard things.  Like my cookie jar for instance!!!  Remember my monk cookie jar from a few days ago?  I was supposed to sell that in my antique booth.  But I didn’t.  The day I was supposed to put that cookie jar in my booth I just went up to the booth and dusted and ate potato chips.   Actually, I just ate potato chips.

Sunny Day Vintage is a much better vintage dealer than I was.  For one, she’s actually selling her things.  And probably dusting them.  I looked at all the pictures on her site and didn’t see any dust at all.  I did see a naked lady!  You’ll have to visit her shop to see that yourself.

Here are a few of my favourites from Sunny Day Vintage!

Red Wing Console Bowl

Lefton Kewpie Doll

Set of 4 green planters (showing 2)

Boys Town Ashtray. If you are a boy and you’re gay, you need to buy this. Even if you don’t smoke.

Vintage Ceramic Candy Dish


I’d love to show you more, but I have a kitchen floor that needs cleaning. And a pig’s nipple to deal with. If you followed me on Twitter and Facebook you’d know what I was talking about.

    I LOVE that yellow candy dish, it’s gorgeous!

      Nikki – I *know*! Doesn’t it have a nice shape? That’s why it’s one of my favs. The other thing I love about Etsy is that it doesn’t cost a fortune for shipping! Ebay can suck it! Living in Canada Ebay sellers consistently charge $25 to ship almost anything. Goons. (not all, but some) ~ karen!

    She has a lovely site, and educational too. I now know that my little pair of cupies, cute as they are, are fakes! (I don’t really care.) And I feel irrationally entitled to that Boys Town ashtray since it’s in my town. Boys Town, I mean! Not the ashtray. Yet.

    Vintage is not my thing, but look forward to what other treasures you’ll be showcasing in the coming weeks

    when I open my Etsy shop, I’m only going to charge ACTUAL shipping.. which, hopefully won’t be much! 😀 In need of any candles? We open soon! 😉
