It’s Shop Time

Hey everyone, hope all is well.  It’s been a few days since we’ve spoken but your Vintage Girl has been busying herself.  Going through boxes and boxes of that word we use “stuff”.  It was like opening up Pandora’s box.  Uggghhh.. As I was going through all the “stuff” that’s been stored for months/years I realized how bad I had it..I’m a hoarder.. There! I confessed! chuckles… But it’s been contained – out of sight- in my storage building.  I guess you’re wondering why I decided to open Pandora..Well, it’s good news -Your vintage girl along with her posse Amina and Renee are back in business.  Shop business – that is.   “Pieces of Time” which was the name of our antique store has opened a booth in Summit, New Jersey.  Yipppeeee!  We are really excited about it.  So I took the trip to New Jersey this past weekend to help set up.  So this post is to showcase what we displayed in our first go round.

This little lady is  Lefton China – we call her Cinderella -and she is very vintage..

Next to her are the daintiest invitation cards neatly tucked inside the limoge mail holder with a matching letter opener. The lovely pink coasters and pearl necklaces add to the princess theme.

A mixture of vintage and slightly used handbags grace the top shelf, while hand-crafted crystal butterflies and candle wick  dippers are underneath.  You can see the butterflies & wick dippers up close by visiting A perfect day to dream.  On her website you will find all the beautiful designs created by LindaG.

It was a challenge to put this Moorish-American chalkware statue in the display case (oh-so loving it)

This moorish head base is made from ceramic.

Vintage caribbean art from Haiti adds a colorful island backdrop

And the boy eating strawberries makes an excellent garden showpiece

This matching light set is very lovely..The set is two wall sconces and ceiling fixture

An antique babydoll sits happily in her carriage

Even though it’s not a huge space, but it’s good for us to start with..(again)   Here is me and my twin – Amina

And this is Amina and Renee…and together we make {Pieces of Time}

I wish I hadn’t forgotten my camera because I would have gotten much better photos, but the camera on my phone didn’t do too bad..  I hope you enjoyed “shopping” with me and if you see anything you like, let me know.. because it’s all “For Sale”

  1. I didn’t know you had a shop before! Congratulations on jumping back in! It’s hard to get out of your blood, isn’t it? Best wishes for a good year and I think you will do well with your artistic eye for design and the creative way you put things together.

    • Hey Ginene- yes we had a shop for 6 years – hated to let it go but the owners of the building we were renting were renovating and with that they were increasing the rent (which sucks) so needless to say we had to leave – because we refused to pay more rent than what we could make at the shop. But you know how the love of this stuff keeps us going – so we’re back at it. Thanks for the well wishes.

  2. Hey, that’s great! Lovely items and I have always loved the Great name of your shop. Love that Moorish head base! I will contact you today! 🙂 Thanks again!

I enjoy reading your comments
