springfield finds

This was my first find at Springfield, or maybe I should say my first purchase.  It’s not difficult to find things there you love, but need and price usually factor into whether it becomes a purchase or not. Now I can’t say I needed this item and looking back, it was more than I should have paid.  But this lady’s husband made this tray from … Continue reading springfield finds

fall on the porch

I bought this little metal stand years ago at my neighbor’s yard sale for $3.  It came with votive cups for candles, but I have used it over the years with a variety of items.  In the summer, I’ve put little peat pots in it with faux succulents, and at Christmas time, it holds Christmas ornaments very nicely.  It even holds cupcakes perfectly for entertaining.  … Continue reading fall on the porch

photo props

This year when I went to the Springfield Flea, it was with the intent to look for photo props that I could use for my online Etsy business.  Not just any props, but props that represented individual states, or a group of states. This is mighty Montana, our 4th largest state and home to Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park. But, when I think … Continue reading photo props
