In the last week we have been a several local papers. FOCUS Magazine talked about the shop and all the quirky & unique items we have. As well as the local artist we feature , George Buigas who does recycled art out of license plates....The Lake Gazette featured us as the new comers to the City of Tavares "America's Seaplane City" and all the amazing events taking place in March  .

The shop had its official ribbon cutting by the Tavares Chamber of Commerce  this event was on February 28th. Cocktails & wonderful treats from the local restaurants were served.

The shop changes on a daily basis . Treasures are sold & new ones are brought in . Here is  small sampling of the shop .......................

Hoity-Toity Hunting in the Lone Star State !

We just return from a little huntin' trip in Dallas, Tx... the Lone Star State. There is something to be said about hunting for treasures in the state that everything is bigger !

Vintage FireHoses with brass nozzle & fittings..
                                               (lucky for us these were not sold by the lbs...)

During our Holiday Hunting trip we found some pretty wild goodies. For instance  casket plates, yes caskets as in RIP (  we are thinking of upcycling these into mini writing boards ), bait Buckets, a very vintage canteen ( this canteen has some miles on it ),medical instruments ( scarey & large ones ),  burlap bags from England dated 1963, several vintage lucite handbags...... and oh so so so many more wild& unique finds.. As we unpack the 3 large boxes ( I think the UPS man may have gotten a hernia from this delivery, sorry ! ) we will post pictures and share our treasures.... Enjoy the "Hoity-Toity" Holidays we are  !
