Personal shopper...


Maybe that's my true calling.. hehe! I had so much fun putting together a box full of vintage goodies for Rosalyn-Sue for a custom order. The thrill of the hunt along with coordinating everything together is wonderfully fun. Here's a peek at some of the goodies I found for her. Hope she likes them!

If you had a personal shopper, what would you ask them to look for?

Hello!
What a great amount of goodies there!
Where I live is not easy to find goodies like these. Most of the time the antique shops around here charge really expensive, speacially vintage jewelry and China. Also, vintage wallpaper is rare to find. I've seen a lot of vintage embroidered fabric and quilts though.

Lucky Rosalyn-Sue! What's not to like! That must've been fun. I love doing that kind of shopping :)

There's no vintage wallpaper around here, although to be fair I haven't exhausted all the venues. Someday I'll start checking out some estate sales and see what I can find!

Those are some nice finds! I love the blue cameo!

I'd ask for buttons, definately buttons (even though I have about a million already). Vintage shell, pearl, bright green plastic, the gold kind with the lions and shields... oh, buttons!

That would be a fun career! What would I have a shopper look for...hmmm. Truthfully, I'm to thrifty to have a personal shopper, I love the thrill of getting a steal LOL! But if money were no object, right now I'm searching for large glass jars for my ever growing collection of ribbons, buttons, embellies, etc... Martha like, but thrifted! Cookie jars, fish bowls, canisters you get the idea.

I would love vintage wallpaper & retro cake & cupcake toppers. I think Martha S or Mary E just had an article about those cute vintage, chenille animals that used to be big in the 50's. Cute!

That looks like a lovely package. I would love a personal shopper for my groceries, and antique/vintage finds!But I would need someone in the States, like you as we don't have estate sales here like you do!

Holy bucket of nuts that stuff is gorgeous! How VERY lucky Rosalyn-Sue is to have Kari on "payroll" for her! You've got a keen eye there, girlie! :-)

My personal shopper would pick up vintage sewing notions, skeleton keys, and uh, marzipan. :-)

If I had a personal shopper I'd ask for everything you have on your blog : ) Yummy treasures. But .... I can't have a personal shopper as I love doing that so much myself.

Love your blog! Love your goodies! I'm keeping an eye on your etsy stuff. :-) Do you know where I can find (or perhaps I could buy some from your etsy?) of those cute little flowers all different colors? The pretty vintage ones? Love all the inspiration... just beautiful! -Glynda
