We’re working at Exit 55 Antiques today. (The store is open until 5pm.) Not only are we looking forward to seeing you, but we’ve brought in more new-to-you-but-old-stuff, like this vintage wooden folk art shadowbox shelf. Don’t you just love the zig-zags?! Handmade, slightly primitive, and just $69. If you can’t come in, call and see about having it shipped to you: 1.218.998.3088. And keep an eye on our Facebook page for more photos of our other unique antiques and vintage collectibles.

As Hubby mentioned, we’ll be among the over 500 dealers selling at the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market (at the Walworth County Fairgrounds in Wisconsin) this weekend. Here are a few of the antiques and vintage collectibles we’re packing up to bring along — and, as always, keep an eye on our official Facebook page to see additional photos of the items we’ll be bringing along.

A charming little painted wooden drop-leaf antique farm table with four matching chairs.

Adorable framed vintage prints of children on dogs. (This photo also shows off the patterned linoleum top of the drop-leaf table.)

Lovers of mid-century modern pieces will flip over this ottoman with built-in, angled to the center, magazine racks beneath it. The cushion is original!

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!

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!

This Sunday, September 2, 2012, we’ll have your collectibles (and antiques) at Maxwell Street Days in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. (We told you we travel!)

Some of the goodies we’re bringing along… A primitive grey painted shabby-yet-chic wooden table, a primitive outdoor bench, a vintage custom-painted Gary Hasse Minnesota boat gas can, lots of old tools…

If you’re more the glamorous type, we’ve got a very cool mid-century mod round white portable hairdryer. Very Mad Men or Pan Am — looks just like the old round luggage pieces! It works and it has it’s original box. There will assorted other girlie collectibles, such as a vintage Barbie case, vintage kitchenalia, funky dancer plaques, mid-century modern side tables and other unique vintage home decor pieces.

We always have fun at flea markets — selling as well as buying. *wink* If we’re not too busy, we’ll try to share the fun by posting live to our Facebook page. (“Like” us, please!)

The gates open to public bright and early at 6:00 am and we hope to see you there!

To find us, just look for the big panda! He’s a large fiberglass panda bear hydraulic chair, for beauty parlours and such. Wouldn’t he be a great chair for a child who doesn’t like to sit at the table?! Or just a great eclectic funky piece for your home. (He’s been keeping me company on our screened-in porch and I will miss him greatly.) The bear also can be removed from the “booster enabled” hydraulic stand, if you prefer to just display the bear sans chair.

If the kitschy panda chair sells by the time you arrive, or you just simply can’t find us, feel free to call me on my cell and I’ll help you find us: 701.306.6145.

Derek and Deanna Dahlsad will be working at Exit 55 Antiques (Fergus Falls, MN) on Friday, August 24, 2012; so come on over and see us!

Along with our stuff in the case (and the garden and other primitive pieces outside), we’ll be there selling what everyone else has. (You can see some of what’s in the store at the Pasttime Antiques & Collectibles page at Facebook!) If you’ve got stuff to sell, or just want to talk about antiques and collectibles, stop on in and see us!

As always, the store hours are 10 to 5. Hope to see you there!

(Yes, this pretty pink masked vintage doll music box will be there — unless someone buys her by then!)
