If you’ve been following our Facebook page, you know that we’ve expanded our antiques and vintage collectibles business by going from a case at Exit 55 Antiques to a booth. While this image makes it all look like magic, we spent nearly five hours Saturday night moving all the items in, arranging them, and vacuuming and cleaning up after ourselves. You can stop in any day between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. to see all our goodies, but if come in this Saturday, September 22, 2012, you’ll find us working there too!

A few more photos of the antique, vintage, and retro items at our yard sale in Fargo, ND. Come on down, get a Play ‘n Spell — or just play for a spell. *wink*
Up here, in the land of frozen tundra aka Fargo, North Dakota, back to school signals the end of the rummage sale season. *heavy sigh* To celebrate, we’re having our last yard sale of 2012 tomorrow (Saturday, September 8). Same place (the north side of Fargo, 14 6th Ave.); same time (starting at 9 a.m.); but with lots of unusual things… Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more sneak peeks!
Items to note: lots of books — both antique and vintage varieties, such as this lovely Thackeray set, and like new contemporary titles as well. Plenty of vintage cookbooks too. Between reading and cooking, you’re set for a cold winter!
If you’re a collector of items or advertising from Minnesota companies, check out the vintage glass bottle of Gold Cross liquid “concentrated beverage base” in “imitation strawberry” flavoring currently in our case at Exit 55 Antiques. The syrup was made by Brechet & Richter Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota; here’s the article I wrote about the company and the bottle.
As always, we had a blast working at Exit 55 Antiques last Friday. Sadly, there’s poor connection to the Internet there, so we couldn’t post any updates live; but we did update our case, adding lots of new things! Lots more vintage hats, vintage jewelry, kitchenalia, carnival glass, and old advertising items.
Added a few things to the case at Antiques On Broadway… The wooden mail sorter box from the Fergus Falls, MN, post office ($100). It’s on top of the case, between the box of Easy Rider Magazines and the smaller crate full of assorted vintage magazines. Near it, an antique barrel or keg ($75).
We also added a vintage Kool-Aid dispenser by Chilton ($15); which isn’t very primitive, but we love pop culture collectibles too. Don’t you?
Today, Saturday, July 28 (2012), we’re having a good old fashioned rummage or yard sale!
So stop on buy, err, by 14 6th Ave N in Fargo, ND — in the alley. Open from 9 to 3.
Some of the items include two foosball tables — one vintage, one newer model. (We posted them at Craig’s List too.)
