Cubbies for the Craft & Ebay Room!

Standard

IMG_9511

The front bedroom is dedicated space to work on repurposing and sewing.  So far, I have this super cabinet that I found at the local RE-STORE.  It measures 80″ tall x 48″ wide x 20″ deep.  It has 42 cubbies that I just imagined would be perfect for sorting all my treasures!  Check out the original color – kind of a pale greenish yellow.  You can’t see it in the picture, but each cubby has a stenciled number (1 … 42 inside) maybe it was for a locker attendant?   It needed some sort of trays, but the thought of buying 42 of anything was out of the question.  I used boxes and repurposed them into just the right size.  Then I printed some cool produce and can labels to cover the fronts of the boxes.  So far, I only have 20 done, but I’m collecting more boxes to finish it off.

Isn’t this a Great Display / Storage for my stash?  Please share your comments; I’d love to hear from you!

Samsonite Marbled Aqua Luggage Set

Standard

I love vintage Luggage … and what better way to travel than with a set of Aqua colored Samsonite Suitcases.

This includes two Suitcases, One Large Round Case and the Matching Train / Cosmetic Case!

All 4 pieces are going to Driving Miz Daisy, the Vintage and Antique Marketplace here in Mission Viejo tomorrow.

It’s a great place to shop early and beat the heat or shop late and get the best deals!

We LOVE it because it is LOCAL!!!!!   Wouldn’t these be darling in the back of a Turquoise Volkswagen Bus?

A New Year with Some Simple Changes!

Standard

2015 Promises to be Different for Tons of Treasures!  The time has come to let go of our little Brick & Mortar Shop (for now).    Customers that have found the shop totally LOVE it, but there are just not enough of them to justify the means.  Since we have become so successful at Piecemakers over the past few years, it is time to branch out.  What better venue than our own local DRIVING MIZ DAISY?  Tons of Treasures has made the commitment and will be a “regular” vendor at their monthly Vintage Marketplace right here in Mission Viejo at Saddleback College.  Join us there on the second Sunday of the Month!
