Vintage Gifts and Wood Furniture

We've all done it. We found a treasure at a garage sale and paid a song for it.

I found such a treasure and paid about $1.25, if I remember correctly.
Say "Merry Christmas" with this wreath.
The man told me it was a nothing that his wife had. What I bought turned out to be a carnival glass candy dish by Indiana Glass before they were bought out. Today it sells on eBay for 10 times that or more, depending on the state of the recession.  It is one of my favorite treasures.

Being a new vendor at Merties, I have been collecting items to sell there. I recently put out vintage FTD vases dating from the 1970's to 2000, some Christmas decorations, and other items. Some are collectible treasures, some useful; all worthy items for the holiday season. And all are being sold for prices comparable (or less) to what you would pay online.

Featured at Mertie's This and That this week are so many varieties of items: from china to collectibles, from jewelry to purses, from fishing rods to knives, furniture from outdoor to indoor, and lots of plants.  You could furnish any room in your house from Mertie's This and That, and even make up the bed and fill up the kitchen.

Yes, there is Christmas Cactus 
and it is just beginning to bloom!

Looking for artificial flowers, leaves and fruit? Got that, too, along with the vases, bowls and baskets to put them in!

 Time to shop. These watches would be a perfect gift.

The furniture is all wood and sturdy.

What says home more than elegant ottomans?

Remember, be among the first to mention the blog to Mertie to get your free gift.
