This week's vintage finds

This week's treasure hunting did not yield many things, but the ones I found are really nice. There's this vanilla-white cherub urn shaped ceramic vase and a heavy vintage metal mailbox (that could be used inside for a cute office organizer). They'll be in the store by Wednesday, if you're interested and they're also posted on etsy, along with the yummy pincushions and some other things not at the store.

Luscious velvet pincushion eye candy

As a lover and purveyor of vintage, many things cross my hands that I love and want to keep but I must say these made my heart skip a beat when I first spied these velvet pincushions. Luscious is the only word to describe this velvet; it is amazing in it's texture and depth of color.

While they would be the ultimate pincushion for a sewer of crafter, I see their true calling being as a display for a cherished brooch or pin. I can just see a fabulous cherished, antique bauble pinned on one of these and sitting on a silver or mirrored vanity tray.

They are the definition of eye candy.
