Do you seem to favor a particular decade (or two) when you shop for vintage goodies? “They” say that we usually prefer items from our parents’ decade (when we were kids) and our grandparents’ decade (when our parents were kids). For myself, I think that holds pretty true. I was a young adult in the 1970s, but items from the 30s, 40s and 50s really appeal most to me.
With all that said, it’s very hard from me to buy (or re-buy) items from the 60s and 70s. Avocado green, harvest gold, flower power, owls, butterflies and mushrooms ….. I threw all that stuff away years ago! All but the music, that is. 70s music is still my favorite!!!
Still, I want to satisfy my customers’ tastes and wants and lately they have been asking for owls ……. pictures, figurines, salt and pepper shakers, anything "owl."
So even though I picked this guy up and put him back down three times before finally deciding I had to buy him (for my customers, of course) this 18” long macramé owl came home with me. Heck, I could have made this thing back in the day. I learned how to macramé in the 70s! Remember all those macramé plant hangers?!!
I just had to show him to you before I take him to the Antique Mall. I actually think he’s pretty cute, but I do hope that one of my customers still wants an owl.
He would be perfect for Halloween, don’t you think?
