Come on Now, do The Crawl!!


Bet you’ve never done the “Crawl”  like this one!  It’s the 7th Ave Monthly “Crawl” in Phoenix, Az.  

In Phoenix on 7th Ave., there are a number a fantastic Vintage and Antique shops.  On the third Thursday of each month the stores are all open in the evening for a fantastic shopping event!

The best store. being the one my daughter is in is, SWEET SALVAGE.

“Sweet”, as “she” is called by all who love her is  open daily once a month on the third Thursday-Sunday.

If you happen to be in the Phoenix area during one of their sales, you’ll experience a magic that is unmistakably Sweet!




Sorry the pictures are so blurry…The pictures are very small and will not enlarge well….If you go to their blog you can see their past shows here.

Sweet Buy & Buy…We’re Gonna’ Lay Down This Heavy Load!!


Well, we’re finally back from our buying trip!  What a blast we had, driving, buying, eating, buying, you know the drill…We hit everything from Garage Sales to Estate Sales to a Hoarders multi- home Sale and Flea Markets.  That old 12 footer couldn’t have taken another treasure.

Sad thing…I am the worst when it comes to taking pictures!  I get so involved in buying, packing, unpacking that the thought of taking a pic always seems to occur to me at the wrong time!  Oops!


This one sale the lady had tons of French Ribbon from the 1930’s


Every Valentine Show needs a Cherub, right?  So don’t forget Matildas next show. our Valentine’s Event is in two weeks, Jan 27, 28, 29.


A wonderful Victorian Bench….


There will be lots of clocks!!


Lots of Rusty and Crusty with a splash of Romantic Whimsy



We’re getting all these fabulous finds and Oh! so many more treasures ready for you for the first 2012 Matildas Mouse Event!  Hope you can make it!!
