"O" is for....

It’s time to offer up my next edition of the Alphabe-Tour. These tours give me the opportunity to show you items that you might observe should you visit my booths at Southern Antique Mall in Laurel, Mississippi. “O” was indeed a challenge, but nonetheless, several qualified objects occupy my shelves. Nothing outrageous, but there were a few ordinary things, some old-fashioned things and one very odd thing!

Are you ready?

“O” is for….

Orange Juice glasses

Oval picture frame

O’Keefe & Merritt Cook Book

Oxford Mixing Bowl

Occupied Japan Demitasse Cup

OvenServe Pie Plate by Homer Laughlin

Oleander Sugar and Creamer by Indiana Glass

Owl Tray by Couroc

and the very odd
One Way Bug Box

Cricket box - Made in Mississippi

“O” is now over, but “P” has lots of possibilities!!!

  28. Sherry, I would love to see your booth, that cookbook is great! If you get into your mosaic projects and have any questions, be sure to give me a holler!! The glass cutter is really the key to success. Adding a little mosaic tile like in my little shelf really helps sell in my booth.
