Jewelry Junking!

We are about to embark on a 3 day buying spree.  Heading to Concord, NC to buy jewelry.  Junky jewels and precious sparklies.  At least that's our plan.  You put 4 girls into one car and send them out with money in their pockets for a junking spree and who really knows WHAT we will come back with!!  Margie and Kent are minding the shop while we are gone.  For now, here are some pictures of some of the jewels we currently have in the shop.

 All this fuss and mess for one little water spigot?  Who knew we had such clout?

The town of Selma was kind enough to choose the front of our shop for the placement of the street's new water access.  I get to water my plants!

I for one am very greatful to the town of Selma.  I have been dragging water buckets from the back of the shop for our trees for years.  

Phew!  In this heat that chore is be miserable!

So for all of you wanting to cool off.....!

Come on in the air conditioning is on here at Reid's.  Third floor may be a tad warm but it's worth the trip.

We've gotten most of the items from the last estate priced and ready to go.  See what we have added to the booths.

The Shelves are BARE!!

Our Father's Day Event was such a success that Cheryl and I had to go on a buying trip. We will be bringing in fresh stock later this week.

We found a great "Kitchy Estate" and will be filling our shelves with hundreds of swanky swigs and retro kitchen treasures.

Be sure to keep an eye on this spot for upcoming items. Better yet, come on in out of the heat and visit with us! Always glad to have you cross our doors.

We heard that bunnies had been seen hopping around the shop lately.
They must have come to take a rest here in the corner of Booth #26.

Easter will be here before you know it !

The sun is shining today and it just made us think of picnics and parties. Why not start out with a bottle of --- PEPSI ---, or something else of your choosing. You wouldn't want to drink these, but check out the great bottles and advertising that Vendor #15 has. Brings back memories of summer picnics by the pond.

If you don't want to drink right out of the bottle, why not check out Vendor #4. This is just one set of vintage drink glasses. The set even comes with a nice handled tray.

Even more wonderful vintage bar necessities can be found in Vendor LIA's booth. This cupboard is full of wonderful pitchers, glasses and shakers. No reason to go around thirsty when you have so much variety to choose from !

If by chance you don't finish that bottle of whatever you were drinking, stop in Booth LJC23, you could use one of these cute bottle corks to keep it fresh for the next time !

Remember drink responsibly ! Have a great weekend.

We are open Saturdays 10 - 6 and Sundays 12 - 5
Hope to see you !
