Vintage Feature #3 -RollingHillsVintage
Let's get to know Anita a little better. I asked her to tell me a little about herself and this was her response.
"I am a nurse and just celebrated my 45th year of nursing. I have loved vintage and antiques since I was a little girl. My first memory of loving something old and beautiful is of some gorgeous red crystal glasses my Grandma had. She brought them from Poland. I came home from school one day and found out she threw them in the garbage and, unfortunately, the garbage men had come and gone. I am still devastated.
My husband and I scour thrift shops and estate sales. We get excited when we spot anything Bakelite, Fiesta or our beloved Pyrex. In my other life, I should have been a 1950's housewife, wearing a dress and apron and little heels.
I hope to retire in 3 years and we want to travel on the West Coast doing Antique/Peddlers/Flea Markets.
My shop favorites are all of my Pyrex and my Butterscotch Bakelite Buttons. My hubby loves the old camera.
I have a second shop anitarae822.etsy.com which features handmade tags, vintage trims and goodies."
RollingHillsVintage has so many vintage goodies. I have some of the same favorites that Anita and her husband have. I love the colors of the pyrex bowls.They are the colors of Thanksgiving. I have a small collection of vintage cameras myself. This Kodak model would be a great addition to anyones collection! The Desperate Housewife Chartreuse Trinket Bowl is a must see!The dish is fabulous all on it's own, but Anita has made it even more special. This shop is the complete vintage one-stop-shop. It features dishes, McCoy pottery,linens, memorabilia..the list goes on and on. For quality vintage items visit http://RollingHillsVintage.etsy.com
