It's show time again! This week we are going to be talking about finding inventory to sell online. Live auctions, flea markets, garage sales, estate sales, Craig's List, church sales, thrift stores, library sales... there is tons of great stuff out there waiting to be found, all you have to do is arm yourself with a little bit of knowledge, and get to hunting!

I know for a lot of us vintage sellers the "thrill of the hunt" is a big part of why we got into this business, so join us at 2pm EST tomorrow, Sunday, August 24th, as we dig in with tons of tips, tricks, and stories - hope you can tune in! As always the chat room will be open and the call in feature working - just dial 646-378-1561.

PS - If you are only a buyer don't think this show isn't for you - these tips can help you find the best stuff and get the best deal when you are shopping out in the "real world" instead of online! ;)

Congrats to Paper Dolls For Boys - the random number generator said you suggested the best name - isn't it just so smart? I do love it, it fits her perfectly!

Thanks to everyone for all the great names! If I ever find another mannequin I will be sure to let you all name her too... ;)

Contest Time - Name That 60's Mannequin Head!

Look at this groovy lady I found last weekend- according to her former owner, she came from a department store in the late 1960's! How often does something like this come around?

So, in her honor (yes, I'm selling her, I know, I'm heartless!), I am having a contest - Name That 60's Mannequin Head! Leave a comment with your suggestion, and on Monday I will use the Random Generator to pick her new name.

The winner will get the item of their choice from the sale section in my Etsy shop - did I mention the Etsy Vintage Street Team is having a sale through the 17th? It's the Under $12 Sale, just search the tag EVSTsale - tons of great stuff, over a thousand items the last time I checked!

Unbelievable goodness at auction this week!

So we had a *great* week this week getting stuff listed at auction - the last few weeks were rather lackluster on that front, but things are looking good now! Here are a few of my favorites:

Three - yes, three! - vintage chenille bedspreads. It's funny how I wrote a post about them not too long ago, saying I don't find them very often, and then I find three in just a few weeks time... Each of them has a couple of condition issues, they are still usable as spreads but I also listed them as "cutter" pieces - I know someone out there craftier than me could really make something great from them!

Pink Butterfly Chenille Bedspread

Aqua Blue & White Chenille Bedspread

Pink & Purple Floral Chenille Bedspread

Another thing I don't find very often and am having a *really* hard time parting with - an amazing vintage barkcloth pillow! I rescued it from the thrift store around the corner from my house - I couldn't believe someone else hadn't snatched it up!

Vintage Tropical Floral Barkcloth Pillow

I have a soft spot for old manual typewriters - I think it comes from when I was a kid and my typewriter was the only form of entertainment in my bedroom other than my books and stereo...

This one is especially cool because it is allegedly from a World War II Navy destroyer ship! It also has the cool keys that are all the rage with jewelry makers - but it is in such great working condition I would hate to see it taken apart!

Vintage WWII Royal Typewriter

I found a really great old wood potty chair with enamel pot at a church sale a couple of weeks ago - it has the sweetest decal of a baby deer on it!

My parents went to an auction a few weeks ago and filled up their car with stuff for me! (They get a kick out of their scores just like I do, it's so cute!) They brought me this amazing hand painted pitcher and glasses set:

Hand Painted Floral Pitcher & Glasses Set

My parents also brought me boxes and boxes full of vintage Tupperware - I broke it out into lots, and it ended up being like 20 auctions! Most of them are ending here in the next few hours, but here is my favorite lot:

Vintage Pastel Tupperware Tumblers & Pitcher

There is a lot more great kitchenware, glassware, linens, etc. to look at - click on over and check it out!
