Not All My ViNtaGe Pieces are "CHiPPy"...


Thinking  S*P*R*I*N*G!*!*!
~As yet ANOTHER ROUND of S*N*O*W is Falling!*!*!
Ah - Wisconsin...

IN EARLY SPRING,
I LoVe bringing home flats of flowers and displaying them
on carts before they get potted or placed in the ground...
This little beauty Sold a couple years ago in my 
ChiPPy-SHaBBy booth at Cedarburg, Wisconsin's Maxwell Street Flea Market...


NOT CHiPPy???
Although about 95% of ViNtaGe Finds I sell
 have some degree of a NATURAL time-worn patina, 
If an item has really good form - I don't mind if it has been more recently painted. 
 ~ Such is the case with the Folding Cart Pictured Above...
Fresh... Clean... Functional... Draws the eye...
