Needlepoint purse and other happy finds

Happy New Year!  I closed out 2012 with some cute finds.  Without further ado, here we go. 

First off, I paid a bit more than I normally would for this purse, but I just loved it.  It is faux leather with a beautiful needlepoint design.  It is in great condition, and even though I want to keep it for myself, I just don't need any more bags.  Hopefully I'll find a happy owner for it, and until then, I will enjoy having it around.

I'm going to be listing this solid brass bowl.  It's so pretty!  

I'm wondering though, do you vintage dealers out there think I should try to clean the spots off the underside?  Do you think it would make any difference in getting a sale?  I tried to rub them off with a damp cloth, and that didn't work, so I think it will take some effort.  I don't know whether they would be considered really distracting or not.  A lot of people like old patina, but I'm not sure about spots.

I think this soup mug is so cute!  I love old souvenirs, and this road runner graphic was just too great to pass up.  I have it listed in the shop.

Another really cute mug - this one has a rainbow handle.  How cheery and bright! 

Well, here's to a New Year full of many wonderful discoveries, lots of new things to learn, and lots of vintage love.  Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Oh I LOVE that brass piece! I would probably just leave the spots as they are -- they don't look that significant. If they bother you, though, a little Brasso should do the trick. :)
