Happy Vintage Black Friday

Jill from Gypsy Brocante is still hosting VBF and let me tell you its lots of fun running around the house looking for that special black piece for this week's post. I want to add all my black pieces but have to convince myself to only a few items per week. hehehe
This little black tea pot was given to me by my great aunt many years ago. Every time I look at the pot I think I my "Tia". Tia is Spanish for Aunt. She had the coziest little house and saved every piece of art work that her nephews/nieces & gnephews/gnieces ever gave her. She was the best!


This old fan was found at the Capitol Flea Market in San Jose, CA many years ago. My FIL, the electrician, was kind enough to fix them (more than one) for me.



This picture has been posted before but I felt that I had to share it again because of its uniquiness. The table belongs to my friend and the instant I saw it I felt I had to include it in VBF.



And finally, a hair comb and my mom's old coin purse. One day she was going to throw it away and I snatched it up before you could say Vintage Black Friday!


Until next week......

The best vintage nic nacs are the ones with a memory attached to it ... especially if it used to belong to a loved one.

Have a great weekend!

WOw---that table is amazing. Is that hand carved?

There is a store you might like in Austin, Texas. It's called "Blackmail". Everything sold there is black. I don't know if it's still open or not. I used to live there, but haven't been back to the store for several years. They also had a killer store called "Baby Blackmail". It was all-black clothing for babies and kids. Fun, huh?????
