Happy Friday everyone – I have to say I’ve been feeling a little bluesy – not the emotional kind bluesy – but the music tunes bluesy. I thought I’d share one of my favorite tunes with you in this post. Koko Taylor, who is the Queen of the Blues sings this song which reflects how I felt at the time I found this week’s fab find. They call me the “Hunter” ! cause I’m always on the hunt for some fab finds, thrifty deals and terrific scores. But before I show you, I would like to share some terrific news! I won’t be doing too much blogging in the next coming weeks (please don’t get too excited about that part -hahaha) buuuuuttt.. guess what??? I’m opening a shop – Yayyyyy !!!! Yes, finally YourVintage Girl is back in business. We (meaning me, my sister Amina and our dear friend/ business partner Renee ) have decided to open the second location of Pieces of Time Antiques. We have a space in new Jersey – and now one in South Carolina. So I’ll be busy setting up shop, but I’ll touch base with you from time to time – so please – don’t forget about me.. :-)
Ok..let’s move on to my Hunted Item – I’ve haven’t been getting too lucky lately but just when I was ready to give up shopping at this particular Goodwill, my woman’s intuition decided to give it one more try. I popped in there, walked straight to the back and look what I found sitting on top of a table – all by it’s lonesome self – waiting for me to strike – the catch that I was after….
O00ooo weeee… ain’t He sweet!!! A Franco Albini pouff ottoman… Talk about a Teeeeerific Score!! Remember I already had one that I posted about here. The price was even of a shocker — $9.75 Can you say WHAT!!!! SHUT THE EFEN DOOR!!!! – cause that’s exactly what I said… naturally I gave it a quick inspection. The only thing wrong was this little paint splash – which will be removed.
Ain’t no need to hide – ain’t no need to run – cause I’ve got you in the sight of my — Luuuv gun ;-)
I love these ottomans and so does my twin. She’s been wanting one. .. so now I have one and she has one !! Just in time for our birthday – so pre-Happy Birthday Amina!! It’s Yours!!
So… I guess I’ll dub myself the “Hunter” – thanks to Koko and her bluesy song. I hope you all have a good-feeling bluesy weekend! Smooches!
