Two comments, one related to this post and one not. First, I've been finding myself drawn more to "smalls" as I like to call them. Less competition, easy to store and ship, and like you I feel some kind of kinship with those little bits of the past.

Second, I participated in a vintage fair last year and you're a big part of why I thought I could do it! I was very successful and can't wait to participate again. I have a full-time job and am the only income so I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to make this a full-time business but I do love having it as a part of my life and meeting similarly minded people. So thank you! I've really enjoyed following your journey and hope you continue to let us into your world :)


I am in aww of that card catalog and am looking forward to potentially stumbling across one! You did an amazing paint job as well. As an avid thrifter I can admit that I also get lost in the smaller items. There is something about the mystery of where it came from and how long it may have been passed over while shoppers are looking for popular, valuable items. Great post!

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved the small stuff! My parents lovingly called my miscellaneous little collections "niknik" which literally means gnat in their language. I guess the connection is that a gnat is small insect and I had lots of smalls. Today, I have thousands of niknik in my home and various storage units (waiting and waiting to be listed in my Etsy shop or placed in my tiny antique mall booth). I think we would collectively swoon at each others' niknik.

I love that it's not just about the money for you - it's about the calling. Fear not - you have kindred souls who understand and appreciate your narrative.
