Maybe a White Christmas?

No snow yet, but maybe some for Christmas!  I know it's pretty, but I'd be just as happy looking at these fun Snowmen!  I wished I would have kept these vintage shakers.  Sold them right away!
A couple of trees covered with snowmen. 

 Blue is the color to mix in with Snowmen. 
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. 
Until next time,

One-Of-A-Kind Yardstick Folk Art!

Gary has been busy creating many new and useful items using yardsticks.  The carrier below would be precious with herbs in it!

 Lots of chalkboards, some with yardstick borders, some with window frames.
 He really likes to find old benches that still have a touch of color.  He covers the damaged tops and they look like new.
 A carrier sitting on a rocker, resting on a small side table.
 A perfect gift for teachers--assorted sizes of pencil boxes.
Why not think about giving a gift that is useable and ONE OF A KIND!  Come in to the shop and see what else we have.  The Alton Antique District is THE place to shop!
Until next time,

What Is It About This Tree!

I don't know how many of these ceramic trees we have sold so far this year!  Each one is different, and pretty, but what is making them so hot this year!

We have one customer that has 179 and keeps them in one room all year round.  Yesterday, we had a couple that has at least 50 and didn't want to share with the kids, so bought one for their daughter for a gift!  It was white, medium sized with pastel butterflies on it.  Cute and they loved it.  I know we sold 3 more yesterday.  We usually sell alot of aluminum trees, and have been getting requests, but between me and the dealers in my shop--we have sold them and can't seem to come up with more.  Supply and demand--isn't that the way this world works! 
Until next time,
