Help! Are these Sam Avedon plastic chairs?

These lime green plastic beauties found their way home with me today! After a bit of searching around online, I am leaning toward them being by Sam Avedon for Alladin, from the early 1960's. The trouble is the only marking I can find on either of them is a small capital letter A. Nothing else! Anyone out there know anything about them? Any help is most appreciated... (They are destined for my antique mall booth, of course!)

New goodness on eBay and Etsy - MORE school posters!

Yesterday I finally listed the last of the school posters I unearthed a couple of weeks ago. I don't know how many listings total I did - maybe 100? It was a LOT. If you missed my first post about them, you can find it here.

I listed most of them on Etsy, but I put a few in my eBay store as well - I've never listed individual posters there before, and since I had so many of them I thought it would be a good time to try some.

Here are just a few of my favorites, click the links above if you want to check them all out!

New goodness on Etsy - vintage school posters!

So, I dug out a box of paper that I apparently stashed away on a shelf back in 2012. Yes, 2012. When I say my stockpile of paper is never ending, I'm not exaggerating! ;) Anyway, I would say the box was about 80% school posters, which I started to list on Etsy this week. I haven't decided yet what to do with the rest of them, if I will list them individually on Etsy like I did these, or if I will lot them up and put them on eBay. I'm going to get that box emptied out one way or the other though!

There are too many to show them all here, so I'll just post a few examples. First up, I listed 20 different letter posters...

I listed 8 number posters...

And finally, 6 nursery rhyme posters...

New goodness at auction on eBay this week!

So who else is chomping at the bit for garage sale season to get here? Here in Ohio we've got about another month until the weather is (usually) nice enough for the sales to start up in earnest. There have been a few estate sales this winter, but not a ton, so my waiting to be listed on eBay pile is woefully small... I did get some auctions up this week though!

At an estate sale last weekend I scooped up a bunch of Syroco - if you've followed the blog for any length of time at all, you know my love for Syroco knows no bounds. I have a few larger pieces that I am going to be trying in the booth first - some flowers, a 3 candle wall sconce, and a key, to be specific. The rest I threw up at auction:

(I almost kept this - it makes me giggle like I'm in junior high.)
