The Vanity Search.

We have a 1950s-60s house that we have been slowly remodeling for the past 8 years. Probably by the time we're done with the remodel we'll have to start over again because everything will be outdated (hah!) . Actually, we're on our last leg of the remodeling journey with the remodel of the bathrooms. Currently we're doing the masterbath.  This bath was previously covered in a bluish tile.  Believe me, I like vintage bathrooms but this one was just plain ugly!

This bath has been gutted down to the studs and sub flooring.  This coming week we will be doing the sheetrock.  By the way, ALL of the remodeling has been done by my hardworking hubby, Mr. Thomas.

We really wanted a nice looking vanity with 2 sinks.  We thought we'd get an English sideboard and install 2 sinks in it.  We searched high and low in Dothan but couldn't find anything that we liked.  We took a trip to Mollywood Imports that's about 5 miles South of Dothan; 30,000 sq. ft. of imported Indonesian furniture.

A view looking through the showroom.

I especially Loved this piece.....not for the price though.  I think it was around $1,000.

A nice classic looking unpainted piece.

I like the lines on this piece and I love green, I'd probably tone down this green a bit if it were to go in my house.


So, we ended up buying a vanity from the Home Depot yesterday.  I like it.  It looks like a piece of furniture and has black painted finish and will fit 2 sinks.  Although we paid a bit more than we wanted, we found what we were looking for!

I'll post a pic of the vanity soon!  Stay tuned ;-)

Sweaters, Sweaters and more Sweaters.......

I've been trying to keep a good stock of sweaters in my shop lately since it's the season to be wearing them.  I acquired about 6 lovely vintage sweaters from a closed down thrift/antique shop recently in the town that my parent's live.  Yep, a closed down and abandoned shop packed with vintage and antique finds with the doors unlocked and even partially open...the doors have been this way for several years now! Okay, okay.......I'm not gonna go into this story any longer.  Needless to say, I figured out how to get these sweaters in an ethical way.  I've listed some of them.

A nice thrift find!

This one was bought from my vintage clothing dealer friend Julie.

I've already sold some of them, but there's still plenty left.  You can check them out right here!

Thanks for looking.
