Yesterday I found a vintage travel trailer on Craigslist. I really really really wanted to go look at it. And in my heart was set to empty our savings to buy it. I was dreaming of road trips and family vacations, tea parties and sleep overs, new hand sewn cushions and curtains and pillows. It just seemed right. However, after some discussion, we erred on the side of caution and allowed it to pass. My heart broke a little. Okay. My heart broke a lot.
We agreed that, yes, we could get a trailer but first had to save the money for it. So practical. So adult. But dagnamit not so fun. Only maybe it will be fun. To earn a little extra cash I'm reopening my Etsy shop; Peculiar Momma's Handmade Wares and Vintage Treasures.
Thus far I have two items listed; the gorgeous mint green scale seen above and a set of awesome pyrex refrigerator boxes. I'll be listing additional items this week including a great vintage plaid lunch tote with two thermoses and a Jim Beam 1930 fire truck decanter (seal still intact). Additionally I'm hoping to add some appliqued camper t-shirts, as well as, burp clothes and bibs. By the way I'm also happy to take custom orders for anyone who might be interested.
I'd love for you to visit my new shop! Additionally please pass on the link to anyone who might also be interested.
Here's to handmade, vintage and just plain fun!
