Hi there! I hope you had a nice weekend. I had a lovely couple of days with my sweet husband. On Friday, we hit a garage sale and Salvation Army for a little vintage shopping, followed by a drive into Albany to take a tour of our Capitol.
My first job out of law school, I worked for the Legislature, so I know the Capitol well, but my sweet husband (who hails from the Pittsburgh area) had never been. It’s a grand old building, and I hope to post about our visit soon. If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have already seen a few photos. I posted our tour of the city of Albany a while back and it includes a photo of the building.
Saturday we slept in and then ran a few errands. We have three weddings in May, and I badly needed a pair of comfortable black shoes, so we ran into Marshall’s to see what they had. I found a pair on sale for just $18 that I loved, but they were slightly too big. Sigh. I decided to turn the corner and walked down the other side of the clearance aisle, even though they were way too small for me, and low and behold, I found a pair of my shoes in 9 1/2. Yippee!
But you’re not here to read about my latest shoe find, are you? You’ll be wanting to hear about what’s selling in vintage and antiques. So, let’s get started.

That’s it for this month, friends. March was a so-so month for me, but I’m not complaining. Ebay sales were down because I didn’t list much due to my focus on making goods for my “line” of Adirondack Girl products for our local Shaker museum.
The museum held its grand re-opening the third week of March, so I had a deadline to meet. I will share those earnings quarterly, when I receive them from the museum. During the “gala” I sold two pots of my Wood Salve, a sign, and a watercolor painting; hopefully that bodes well for future sales. I’ll be sure to let you know 🙂
