About Memphis Attic

Concept and title of group created by Dawn.

I have a passion for collecting which includes but not limited to: all kinds of pop culture items, salt & pepper shakers, old cookie jars, old shabby painted items, old advertising tin signs, vintage Black Americana, pottery bowls, retro kitchen items, old display cabinets, cricket benches, antique furniture, Adirondack items and the list goes on and on. I am a total addict!! Somebody help me!! I've been collecting about 15 years and don't have room for it all. I frequent yard sales, estate sales, flea markets and I do buy and sell on Ebay.

Kim: You are right, Etsy is wrong. This is a collectible that has history and value.

I had this item removed from Etsy recently, I consider this Black Americana.

Interesting figural brush with a lever in the back which causes the natural bristles (hair) to extend an additional 1/2".

Found in the box yesterday!!! I didn't know these shot glasses were Federal as they are unmarked and I love the name, "Rumpus Set." I feature these in my African-Americana book, but now I know so much more!
