Don't You Just Love to Trade Stuff.......

I just have to show you all the wonderful items I traded with my friend Julie.   We met two years ago on an art cruise to Alaska.  She is such a hoot and our interests are so similar.    She loves to shop for bargains like I do.   She might even do it more than myself or it could be a toss-up on that one.  One thing she does that I don't do is to dig for treasures and lots of rusty things.    I didn't have a lot of rusty things but I do now.   Look at this wonderful box of rust.

Aren't these cabinet cards just wonderful.   I can't wait to do something with them.   These were just perfect because I had been wanting some.

Here are a few miscellaneous items that are wonderful too.   I love the pottery pieces with all the beautiful designs on them.   One of the packages of bottlecaps is from cool is that and the other package is from Big Sky Country.

And in trade, I am sending her items that I have a lot of and she doesn't.   I have a package ready to mail her now full of vintage linen, etc.


  1. Ah, glad you found a partner in crime in Julie. I'm looking forward to meeting her on the next cruise.
