Pinkalicious Pink Saturday
At the start of each month, I create a new "center" display for my shop, 2nd fl Thriftiques. I've showcased vintage wedding items for "June Brides" and Amber Glass Goodies for November's "Harvest Gold" vignette. Of course, who could forget December's "Christmas Seusical" display.
It was the obvious choice to go Pink for February. Nothing saves Happy Valentine's Day than a pink-sensory overload in my "Pinkalicious" Display. From a vintage pink women's electric razor, to pink shoe stretchers, pink jewelry, pink chairs, pink dishes and glass........ you get the idea, it is "PINKALICIOUS".
I love this pink rose that would have adorned some fashionable lady's hat, back in the day.
Pink oil lamp, a trio of pink aluminum bells, and a sweet 1960's tile picturing young love at the soda shop.
I love the speckled pink glass salt and pepper set. The large white chocolate you see in the foreground is actually a candle. Not only do you get a pink treat for the eyes, when you enter the shop, the heavenly smell of chocolate greets you.
This sweet "calling card" seen above is probably one of my favorite pieces of the display. Found in a book as an unexpected treasure, it reminds me of a story from one of the books in the "Little House" series, when calling cards were a very fashionable fad for Laura Ingalls Wilder and her friends.
The pink apron with the black ric rac edged pocket sold immediately after I took this picture.
This set of Ironstone plates followed the apron. It was a service for 8, and yes the customer is planning on a special Valentine's day dinner.
An "ideal" sweet dollhouse chair and a "Superior" cabinet. I would have loved these for my dollhouse.
So these are just a few of the photos of my display. I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for her always "Pinkalicious" Pink Saturday. (Please click here for your invite). I promise more photos of the shop display for next time that Pink Saturday rolls around. Wait till you see the furniture.
Stay safe, stay warm. Another storm is on its way to start the week. Is is Spring yet?
Got it at Goodwill
