goodbye little brown suitcase. send my regards to Broadway!

One of the most fun things about selling online are the people you encounter- finding out where the item is going to, and sometimes finding out how they are using the item!

My little brown vintage suitcase- the one I recently featured here:

...sold just a few short days after this post!  I'm not sure if it had to do anything with blogging, but either way, it's always exciting to get the little notification that you have a buyer. 
I'll be honest here though. 
I was a teensy bit sad.  But, it just means more shopping trips for me!  :)

The exciting part was when I saw where it was going!  Over to the East coast to....
BrOadWaY!  New York City!
(you have to imagine me singing that in my best Broadway voice with my jazz hands...)
Apparently it's going to a props department- not sure if it will be for stage or film, but either way, sometimes it's more fun imagining the possibilities. 
I also sold this in the same transaction:

It was one of my favorites as well.

I've been selling online for quite awhile- since 2004, but only recently on Etsy.  Sometimes the name that pops up as a buyer makes my heart skip a beat- once I thought I'd sold a beer stein to a famous and well known top ranking general in the US military.  Pretty sure it wasn't him, but it was fun imagining it.  

Another time I thought I'd maybe sold an item to a well known character on an HBO series involving 4 single ladies in NYC.... same name, different gal. :)  

Anyway, it's a lot of fun, and I love doing it.  And it always means I need to restock.  Here's some items that will be making it's way into the shop this week:

 Vintage European maps

a white milk glass urn

...this cute little wall shelf.  I have more painting to do on it. I fell in love with it's Bavarian look   :)

And, some vintage Hawaiian travel brochures!  These are really fun to look at.  They are all from the 1960's, and it's interesting to see how people traveled back then.  The costs for tours and travel is also in here!

If you haven't seen the rest of my shop, take a look! Lots of fun goodies, both vintage and handmade.
Have a great weekend!  I have lots of fun projects to share with you this next week!
