Real or Replica?
I thought I would share with you my newest treasure. Frankie and I were out and about a few weekends ago hitting some yard sales and local flea marts and happened upon these two items. I must say that it was Love At First Site. They came home with me and will become part of my display when participating in shows.
I have no idea if they are real vintage or replicas, but either way they will work perfectly. Some have told me they are replicas, because of the curves on the handles. I have found the carriage on Ebay and it looks exactly like it and it says it is vintage, but then some say replica. This Saturday we went to McKinney, Texas to the Third Monday Flea Mart and there was a vendor with the exact carriage and she said hers was a 1920 doll carriage. So I am still not sure if anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I can't wait to get them cleaned up and start using them.

Hi Everyone! Hope that everyone is doing well and I must appologize for not posting in awhile. I have been trying to get ready for the Magnolia Festival. It started this Wednesday and ends Saturday night at 10:00 p,m. This is the first show event for Shell's Vintage Charm, so I thought I would share some pictures of my booth space.
I was so afraid that I wasn't going to have enough items to fill up my spot. Was really stressing and in a panic for no reason. It turned out fine and is soooo cute. I am getting good responses, comments and making contacts, so all is well.
Remember that dresser without a back and no drawers in a previous post that I rescued from a house that was being torn down. Well my husband worked some Vintage Charm of his own and made me an area for my purchases. I love it!!! I will be doing a more detailed post on it very soon.
