We're All Business

My new business card using a GRAPHICS FAIRY thimble

Yesterday we felt a slight stirring of spring in the air AND the sun was shining. No one who has been huddling inside for months wanted to spend another day indoors so out we went exploring some new arrivals.  The little town of Seville, Ohio has recently been developing into a real destination for antiques and shabby chic aficianados. They have been gathering for the last couple of years and now this last few months have added two brand new spots.

Seville's main intersection from inside The White Elephant Bazaar

 Like many little towns, Seville no longer has some of businesses that thrived in the town years ago, but the storefronts are filling up with names like:

Along Memory Lane
Funky Junk Boutique
The Rusty Bucket
Seville Flower and Gift
Seville Antiques
White Elephant Bazaar
Velvet's W. Main Framing
Vintage Corner

I was on the lookout for anything sewing related, thimbles, great graphics like old postcards and ephemera but the first thing I seized on in the first place we entered was a piece of Fiesta Ware. It is a cup tree in a discontinued light blue ( a color I can't resist) and I snapped it up.
I am keeping the picture small because I took it apart before taking the "before" photo and now I can't get it back together. When I get it the way I want it I will bring it back for you to see.

New and old inside Seville Flower and Gifts...and it smelled great in here!

Sewing items at Along Memory Lane

The colors in this chair at Vintage Corner almost  made me buy it. The price was great if I only had somewhere to put it!
I did buy these and actually will use them in projects

Something for the guys at White Elephant Bazaar
in what was Hartman Pharmacy a long time ago
If you live anywhere in the area or will be visiting or passing through Beautiful Ohio be sure to stop by. I only mention the antques but you will also find something to eat while you are here.

AND every June the town hosts a huge yard sale. Learn more HERE. You will also find directions on how to get to Seville.

Now it's time to get back to sewing.
