Interesting New Find

Out junking several weeks ago and found these really cool wooden shipping crates!  They're lined in tin and have wooden lids. Chinese or Japanese ~ I'm not sure which, but I love the colorful paper labels on each end! I wonder what stories they could tell?!  These crates would make a great coffee table or end table.   $65 each

Christmas In July

Only roughly 150 days until Christmas!  I love vintage rhinestone Christmas tree pins and have a personal collection of them.  It was fun to wear a different one each day in December when I was working an office job.  It was hard to choose, because I had more brooches than the number of days, so I doubled up on wearing them as we got closer to Christmas.  Last
Christmas I created another fun way to wear several at once!  I found a plain gold-tone link chain and attached several Christmas trees on it to make a statement necklace!  Voila! Getting into the holiday spirit with plenty of sparkle!   

Vintage Gal Antiques has a great selection of vintage Christmas tree brooches, earrings and other Christmas ornament jewelry for sale.  Come and check it out!

More Than Vintage...

Vintage Gal Antiques is more than just another stuffy antique store!  You will find an eclectic blend of old and new items.  Whether it be primitive, country or blingy, when I'm out and about, shopping for resale, I try to find items that are a little quirky or unusual.   


Some popular new items are my "sweet and sassy" gift tags and note cards which are all my own original designs. Each gift tag or card is protected in a clear sleeve and priced from $1.50 to $3.50 each. 

The gift tags are a fun way to add sass to a gift or tie to a bottle of wine to make it special!  Vintage and retro photos with cute sayings, like:  "All You Need is Love...and a Tiara, And Maybe A Cookie".  Or maybe "Whoever Said Less is More, Obviously Wasn't a Wine DrinkerWitty sayings for many different occasions!  

The note cards available are generally local scenes and historic photos related to Gold Rush days.  One of my favorites is a family photo of Rick's grandfather. I believe it was taken at an early Pan Pacific California Expo in San Francisco.  It's just a great old photo!

So if you need a last minute card or gift tag, come and check out the great selection.  And browse the rest of the store...you never know what you might find!
