It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Hi everyone! I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving and are getting ready for glorious Christmas. Brian and I have been busy and our spaces are ever changing. Auctions, flea markets, bazaars, estate sales–we’ve been to them all lately. We put out our popular surprise bags for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday and they were a big hit! We’ll be putting more together for this coming Friday and the annual Midnight Madness on Main Street.

Check out our current booth pictures:

If you’re in the Ellicott City area, come down to Main Street, have some dinner, watch the tree lighting ceremony, listen to the beautiful voices of the carolers and shop for all kinds of treasures until midnight! Take care and as always, thanks for looking 🙂

Time for Autumn Treasures

Time goes by fast and now that it’s Autumn, I don’t want to miss the milder weather, the lovely golds, reds and oranges of the leaves and fun and spooky Halloween. It’s also a great time to hit all the great festivals, flea markets and auctions. I’m looking forward to it all!

We’ve been adding to our booths weekly and planning ahead for the best holiday of all–Christmas. Check out some of our new treasures and current booth pictures.

Rescuing Vintage

So here we are at the end of July–summer is going by fast. Brian and I have braved the intense heat and humidity at the weekly auction to find new awesome treasures. We were also in the mood to give new life to an old cabinet. I’ve been working hard in our booths and while they’re packed with amazing stuff, there’s still room for more. I’ll never tire of rescuing old pieces and turning them into treasures, of giving cool vintage items a chance at a new home. Maybe you share this passion and if you do, then you understand how I feel.

Here is the transformation of our old cabinet:

End of June

It’s hard to believe it’s the end of June. It’s been a tough month for me–I lost my beloved cat Nash of 15 years. He is at peace now but I’m having a difficult time without his sweet face and loving purrs.

Brian and I have still managed to attend some auctions and I’ve been doing a much needed clean up of our booths and our inventory. There’s still much to do but for now I wanted to share some current pictures of our booths and some of the treasures we recently acquired.

Spring Cleaning

After a very long and cold winter, Spring is finally here! I decided to do some spring cleaning in my booths–purging, adding and rearranging. Check out the pictures below:

Until next time, thanks for looking 🙂

February Goodies

Hi Everyone! It’s been a long time since I shared any pictures or adventures with you. Christmas was a whirlwind as it always is and January was long, cold and tough to get through. But Brian and I didn’t put Moonglow on hold. We love our weekly auctions and thrift store outings. For a couple of weeks, we didn’t put much new on the shelves and ended up selling a lot of treasures that I had almost given up on. That’s always fun!

Recently, we stocked our booths with some new goodies and there’s still more to come. Have a look:

silver

bench

captain

slot

fan

beer

shelf

wall

phonebooth

crates

bottles

What do you think? We always try to buy a variety of treasures and this is the first time we’ve bought a slot machine! So much fun 🙂

Hope you all have been well and having a fabulous February!

Until next time, thanks for looking 😉

Midnight Madness!

It’s Friday December 5th and for us that means Midnight Madness! Historic Ellicott City shops and restaurants will be opened until midnight tonight and will be hosting sales, treats, carolers, Christmas tree lighting and so much more. The Antique Depot will have pizza for its customers and the shop is bursting with amazing stuff from all its dealers. Brian and I have been stocking our booths (123, 017+018) with awesome new treasures. For the second year, we’ve also put together surprise bags for both adults and kids. If you’re in the area, check it out and have some fun. 🙂

The auctions have been good to us lately and we have so much great stuff that we’re still pricing it all and putting it out on the shelves. Check out some of it below:
