I recently did a bit of shopping in northern South Carolina, in the Greenville area. There are several very nice antique malls in the area, and there was quite a bit that I saw and liked but did not buy.
First up is a salesman’s case from Ferris Woolen Company. Dated 1939 – 1940, I really liked the graphics. I already have one from the early 1920s, which I’ve written about in the past.
Isn’t this old croquet box the best?
Had this been a Scottie, I’d probably have had to buy it. Still, this little child’s wheelbarrow was pretty special.
This calendar is from 1958. Now I’ve decided that I must have a hat that holds golf tees.
In hindsight, I probably should have bought this zipper display and zippers. I love metal Talons, and pick them up to use. These were odd colors so I passed on them.
For Zest and Fun, Drink B-1. It’s full of vitamins, you know.
Who doesn’t need a Likker Lugger?
This great little sailor man pin shows us how to wear a striped tee. I love the details, including the diagonal pocket.
I’ve been thinking more and more about getting an old sewing stand. I’m telling myself it will eliminate some clutter.
This is a sorry photo of a really fantastic hat. It was really lovely, and it had a great label to boot.
In my part of the world, Pappagallos were THE shoe of the mid 1960s. Even the lining is cute.
This late 1910s dress had some damage, but the fabric was really terrific. Those dots are not printed, they are woven. It was simply a fantastic textile.
The snowsuit of doom, but how about those mittens?
I loved this advertising poster so much. I mean, really, really loved it.
So, did I mess up by leaving these great things unbought?
