Big(ish) News!

Sorry to post about my personal life, but I'm just so thrilled!

I have been voted in by my league-mates to be the PR Rep for the Twin City Derby Girls!

 Look at those hotties, what an honor!

Which means I'm on the board.. and fancy.

I'm so pumped for the next season to see what I can accomplish! I've got big plans and simply cannot wait to make them happen!

See that laser focus? I'm coming for you PR!

Photo Transfer How-To from a How-To

So this has nothing to do with "retro" besides the retro idea of DIY!

I have been playing around with wood photo transfer because of a video I saw online.

while i'm waiting on the bleach to activate...

I thought I would share my recent ebay efforts!

I hate the thought of cool items sitting on a dusty shelf at the thrift store, so sometimes I pick them up and release them to the wild.

I only have 3 auctions currently, and all of the items I'd love to hang on to if they don't sell! haha but alas, I think they should go out to real collectors.

I feel I keep my prices reasonable. For example, a couple of these awesome mosaic Fire King bowls sold for $15. I set my price at $4.99. Ends today, we'll see what happens!

Then there's Boontonware. I am extremely fascinated with Boontonware! Melamine is awesome, heavy duty, and effing pretty as eff! The handles on these tea cups are so art deco I can't even stand it!

Then there are the ever so collectible souvenir trays! I have 3, an official collection. I'm gifting them to some lucky ebay winner as an insta-collection! I've seen some really cool things done with these trays, so I hope someone that is madly in love with them picks them up! 3 Trays, $4.99? Yeah, I'm awesome.

What's shocking to me is this guy: a vintage awesome sugar canister. For only $5.99. I've listed it twice and it hasn't sold. Any advice on what I'm doing wrong?

I hope this ebay thing can feed my need for thrifting and make some people happy! Do you ebay?
