Hello everyone...I'm an antique dealer that sells antiques, as one of many dealers, in a large antique mall. The reason for my blog is not to be unkind or critical to our valued customers, but to educate shoppers to respect the various dealers and realize that all the items in these malls, are not owned by the same person. Think of an antique mall as you would think of a normal shopping mall....a large mall with many shops under the same roof. Within the antique mall, is the same… Continue

Vintage Mannequin Tea Party!
Julie: "I wonder when Cindy and Marie will arrive...the tea will get cold! My it 'is' warm in here!" (fanning herself vigorously!)
Josette: "Julie, why must you wear a 1920's hat, and jewelry, with 1940's gloves and purse? And you are using a 1960's fan!"
"At least my accessories are all from the 1940's! And my jewelry was featured in the 1947 movie 'Out Of The Past'! (her nose a bit in the air!)

I am a collector and seller of vintage costume jewelry. For the past few years I have purchased many collector books on the subject. I have asked many questions of local dealers, and dealers online, who I've met while purchasing jewelry, or through social networks.
There are quite a few differences of opinion in the cleaning of vintage costume jewelry, and storage also.

Gerber Baby Cereal-A Real Baby Food: When some U.S. companies began marketing their products in Africa they were unaware that it was a common practice to have a picture on the label of what was inside as most of the African population could not read English. The Gerber Company was not aware of this practice and ran into a major problem since the photo on their label was of a cute Caucasian Baby, oops!

and zinc are two commonly-used materials in the production of
chromolithographs.) After the image is drawn onto stone, the stone is

and passed through a printing… Continue

I'm fascinated by salesman samples. I picture a road warrior of yesterday with a donkey and a cart making the rounds to houses away from the beaten path. Or a mom and pop general store like my great-grandparents used to own in Germantown, TN with a catalog and a couple of miniature tables or bookcases.
I don't own many samples because finding room for my full-size treasures and the inventory for my online store take precedence, but I always check them out when I find them… Continue
