Flea Market Friday: Is Sean Cassidy Vintage?

Hello fellow crafters! Today I ventured to heart of the sexy city; down to the stockyards, rail yards, and old warehouses some of which have been converted to haunted houses with names like The Edge of Hell and The Beast, others are now large antique malls, flea markets, and "estate sale" venues. This is where I found Good Ju Ju ( Good Ju Ju is a large expanse of mostly "vintage" wares and some homemade items. The products are separated by the seller (of which there are many) into sort of vignettes; mostly by theme. I scored a few great items for my sewing studio. Check out these "vintage" genuine fake diamond-esque buttons and matching buckles.

Sorry for the horrid photo quality. I'm not sure what's going on with my camera, but it appears I may need to invest in a new one.

I also made off with a few sewing stuff storage items. Backstory: When I started decorating my studio last fall, one of the first pieces of furniture I bought was an old, rather, vintage, kitchen cupboard. It is quite tall and the top is laminated. It is edged in metal and has an "on board" bread compartment drawer. That said, today I found a silver bread box and a set of silver canisters. I've placed these atop of my cupboard. It rocks!

With my loot in my boot, I left Good Ju Ju and walked over to a "proper" antique store. Here I purchased my first vintage sewing pattern. Actually, I bought two patterns. I'm not sure what year the Butterick pattern was produced because I can't find a date on the package or anywhere on the instructions. It is unique, to me anyway, because it is a 1/2 size. I haven't seen this on patterns since I have been sewing. The Simplicity (5967) pattern appears to have been printed in 1973. Tres cool huh?

I finally returned home pleased with my trip to the bowels of the city. My diva daughter and I had a blast. Oh, and she received several compliments on her halter I made for her a few months ago. Today she wore it for the first time as the weather is now hot (and I mean hot) enough to wear it. What do you think? It you say...tres chic no?

One last word...maybe two. I must say I was a bit taken aback when I spied a Sean Cassidy poster listed as "Vintage Hearthrob." If this makes you feel old, I won't mention that I also saw Leif Garret's poster, too. If I had the exact same Sean Cassidy..."Da Doo Run Run"...poster, does that mean I am vintage?

Definitely believe that which you stated.
Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.

I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people
consider worries that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
really something that I think I would never understand.

It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I will try
to get the hang of it!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem
to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
