I Finally...

... got my hands on it! 

And it didn't disappoint! 

What made it even more fun... 
The Whistle Stop  is "stylin' " too!
Vintage, antique, junkin'  finds at the "SToP"...
 just like Flea Market Style! 

I love this photo {top} from Flea Market Style! 
Vintage battery jars make great vases or containers 
to show off any collection!
The photo {bottom} is a bouquet of flowers from
my garden last year... in a vintage glass battery jar!
I have a few of these that will be in the store this week! 

Love, love, love the well worn sports equipment!
The bat coat rack has been a proven seller for us. 
May have to try a few of the other projects shown here! 
I have a bushel or two of old baseballs and 
softballs ready to repurposed! 

 The magazines collection of plates on the 
               wall makes for great art!  If you want to start your 
collection we have a few plates to get you started!

{The Whistle Stop}
Another love... old whisk brooms!
 Look at that collection of brooms 
 and dusters!  I'm always on the hunt for 
whisk brooms. Only one in stock right now, 
but it would make a great addition or the 
start to a wonderful collection. 

   I've always been drawn to old office items.  
I have my dad's old clipboard from his 
electrical business... no computers in those days!
 { he passed away when I was 10 so it's pretty special}
I was always playing school, office and librarian as a kid.  
I have a pile of clipboards coming to the "SToP"!

{Nancy Polacek's pillows}
I love Nancy's pillows! Aren't they fun?  
Memories are revived with these dated pillows.
 A customer bought a pillow from the "SToP"
because it was the year she and her husband got married!
I am on the hunt for more calendar towels to 
repurpose into fun pillows!

{our kid's wedding reception}

Vintage weddings are so popular now! 
My son & daughter-in-law's wedding reception
was all about fun, casual and vintage! 
Right up my alley! It was so much fun to decorate!

I have a few Flea Market Style magazines for sale 
at the shop!  So many beautiful photos, decorating 
ideas and plain ol' junkin' fun stuff! 
You're going to want one! 

*Shout out to my friend Cammie
Contributor to Flea Market Style Magazine!
