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

That is a awesome electric razor. From the 50's do you think? You didn't mention them but I love oblong serving dishes or are they platters? The whole post just tickled me pink.

I just love it when someone who has a shop goes to the trouble to set up a display like you did! It makes me want to buy more. Makes me think of my friend Lee Ann who had a great shop and that was the first thing you saw when you walked in a table for what ever season/month/holiday it was.

If I was there i would be snapping it all up!!

I always enjoy your seasonal displays and this is one of my favs since it's PINK! Love it all. I love those dishes and can understand why they sold. I need to do a vintage display today here in my home. You have the best stuff!! hugs, Linda

These were all so delightful. I have to confess, my favorite was the one that brought back sweet family memories of a time when my beloved husband and I were young, as were my children, (long before my adorable grandchildren) - it's that cute pink oil lamp - we had a few of those around the house - I suspect many of us in the baby boomer generation did. Thanks for the lovely Pink Saturday visit.

Your Febuary displays are done so well. I too love the calling card. I'm sure things don't last too long in your shop.
Happy Pink Sat.

That razor is just wild! I love the display.

Tammy@beatrice banks said...

Such adorable pinks! That razor takes me back. I think my first one looked something like that. It was my prized possession as a young girl! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Hi Sherrie, It was fun to see your booth and how you Valentined it up! Loved it. Happy Pink Saturday and let's hope the snow will not happen. The weatherman said we may be in for a big one on Thursday. NOOOOOO...that's my treasure hunting day. :)

Hi Sherrie!
You have some wonderful pinkness showing here! And congrats on the quick sales. The apron and the dishes were just perfect!

sissie said...

Hi Sherrie,
I love your display of pretty pink vintage lovelies. I can see why the apron sold right away and those dishes, but of course I say everything else will sell too.
I remember those electric razors that would sometimes give you a zap or two! LOL.
