Meet Emma!

Hi Bloggerettes!!  I'm so excited to introduce you to Emma.  She's an old fashioned girl who loves lace, ribbons, bows, rosettes and she's really prissy.  And, she really loves to hang around our booth!
Emma is wearing a vintage wedding gown
in honor of a once lovely bride.  A young bride who walked down the aisle with her true love as long as 70 years ago.
Oh, the stories she could tell, but she has chosen not to
share any secrets and to just be.
She does have a tatter or two but that's okay, she's still pretty.
See the little hat on her make believe head...
Emma loves showing shoppers around our booth...


Another burlap wreath shaped in a heart...

It's fluffing and stuffing season for booth operators.
We want to have lots of pretties and one of a kind treasures for our shoppers....so staying on top of the newest trends and giving them what they want is important.

So, it's off to the auctions, estate sales and pickin
to keep them happy!


Don't forget to enter my 1000 followers countdown giveaway!

~~hugs~~
Sissie

Hi Sissie! Emma is gorgeous! I think she represents all that is good with some of us vintage treasures, we don't tell all of our secrets, we are a bit tattered but if you look closely enough you see the glimmer in our eyes!
Your booth looks amazing, so much to look at and covet! Have fun treasure hunting! Theresa

Sissie, this is so weird, I just put a vintage wedding dress in my booth last week, it is the first time I have tried selling one, but it was just fabulous. I would love to put her on my dress form, but I just don't have the room! I know I have told you before, but you can't tell a girl to many times, YOUR BOOTH IS GORGEOUS!
