**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!** VINTAGE FiNdS FROM-THE-PAST!*!*!

My girlfriend Terry's Mom used to say "January seems to last forever"...  ~ It's most certainly feeling like - JUST THAT TODAY!!!  Near zero temperatures & being what I call "CAGED-UP" are just not my thing... Soooooo in order to get a little "Perk-Me-Up-Fix" ~ I've been viewing quite a few "Old-SHaBBy-Finds" from the PAST...  Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did...  SPRING WILL COME...  Only people in "Snow Country" understand and long for this...

ALL these Finds are Long-Gone, but I remember each and every one of them!!!



Loading up for Northwind Garden Show years ago...  ALL that "PeRfeCtLy ChiPPy" Furniture...



Each year I SELL COSMOS PLANTS in my booth at the Cedarburg Maxwell Street Flea Market in late May...



 A pile of "SHaBBies" ~ Some ended up being keepers that I Still Have...
 



I almost always try and have some Architectural SaLVaGe in my booth space...   It's much harder to find it during the winter months ~ but a treat when I do!!!



This photo goes way... way... back...
  A gathering of PeRfeCTLy ChiPPy SHaBBies!!!



YES...  We will eventually SEE sights like this - HOWEVER, not until MAY in Wisconsin...

Don't Forget...  Mark YOUR Calendar...  
Come Shop-My-SHaBBies in the next couple weeks!!!

*** DuPage Expo Center - St. Charles, IL ***
