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.

I'm on the hunt for this cookie jar! It's called "The Bell Captain" and it's made by a company called McMe. If anyone comes across one for sale let me know. Thanks!

I myself wouldn't try to remove the rust stain as it might make it worse. The only thing you could maybe do if the paper is not to thin or brittle is try a pencil eraser very gently. Just test a small area first . It probably will just lighten the rust stain a bit. Maybe the tiny rust spot in between the trunk and his leg is a good spot to test out the eraser. You might not want to use the eraser on his blue leg just the white areas as the blue might rub off. I love this card! I really like the black porter and bellhop items! I look forward to seeing some more of your collection! Let me know how the stain works out.

I have several Black Americana collectibles in a range of concentrations - ashtrays, glassware, tea towels & tablecloths, ephemera, etc. I'm still unpacking boxes from a move but took a shot of this little travel card today that I love. Look at the Scottie's expression! There is a rust mark on the front of the card from a long ago paperclip gone bad, which I haven't dealt with. Dawn, is there a way to remove this without damaging the paper?

Old mammy and chef painted wooden potholder hangers from my collection. The hooks are missing off them but they still display nicely.

You can also join other interest groups on this site, I did and I loved.

Hi. Thank you for the reply. No! Never seek a cure because it just shows that you are the right kind of person. The kind of person whose interest give you life and that life lights us the world of those who truely appreciate your taste.

Just look at it this way, you gain an immediate reward in terms of personal joy and if you train your eye to find the right item, you can stand a chance to reap a greater reward in terms of cash when you sell that Item for much much more than you ever conceived that It would bring!
How do they say it down south. "You Go!"
