"P" is for....

Please join me for The Alphabe-Tour!  P” is the next letter in line to introduce you to examples of “vintage-ness” that you’ll find in my booths at Southern Antique Mall. I won’t bore you with plate racks, picture frames and potato mashers (though they’re there), because there are plenty of other participants in this part of the tour.

So pause for a few minutes and peruse these photos

“P” is for….

Panama typewriter ribbon tin

Pfaltzgraff  “Folk Art” salt & pepper

Phillips Milk of Magnesia bottles

Pepsi Cola bottle and Planter’s Peanuts burlap bag

Platters - miscellaneous

Pansies - embroidered picture

  7. Hi! I'm back from my trip. I thought of you while I was gone as I was antiquing and thrifting. As always, you've come through with quite a collection for "P". Prince Albert cans always take me back to my young days and telephone pranks..I'm sure you know the one. :)

    Oh yes, Q is next! You can do it!!

  8. "P" is a good letter!! I love those salt and pepper shakers, they're adorable. They must have been a gas station giveaway years ago. Simply "P"habulous.

  9. You have some great little "P" items. I have a little pie bird like yours.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  10. Typewriter! Just think of how many kids will never know how to load ribbon in a typewriter!

    I love the pie bird!

    I'm back, great vacation! I really wish everybody would have not blogged while I was gone! I've missed so much!! ha

  11. Platters, pansies, pie birds and planters--PERFECT!
    Happy weekend!

  12. The typewriter ribbon case is great, never seen one before. I have a weakness for anything made from metal.

  13. Oh love those salt and pepper shakers! Q??? A quart bowl,Queen, Queen Bee, old quarter, The word Quality, that was used a lot on old signage and cans...that's it I'm out of Q's good luck!


  14. I love the sweet pie bird! I have 2 of them and they are precious! The burlap bag is great, too! Lots of fun things for this letter! ♥

  15. A very impressive list of vintage "P" finds, Sherry. Can't wait to see what items you show off for "Q". You're really gonna have to put your thinking cap on. ;)
