I was wondering around our Mall yesterday and I spotted this record player. I had to take a picture of it and I wondered why?
Why would someone make a Donny and Marie Record Player and how did it end up in our Mall? It truly is an odd item but I am drawn to it.
I continued to work and to notice things around me.
Dan had brought in some daffodils. I love them and their bright cheery yellow color. They are so refreshing this time of year and bring me hope of spring!
And then Alan tried on this Japanese Mask and was looking goofy. I had to take a picture of that, too. Certainly someone wearing a Japanese fighting mask would draw ones attention!
It was a fun day at our Mall. We worked hard and I decided to put up my little easter bunny's near the front register. They are cute and remind me that Easter is not that far off.
As I downloaded these pictures off of my phone this morning I had a moment of clarity. It wasn't that the objects I chose to photograph were unrelated. What I saw as the pictures appeared on the screen was that I was seeing "yellow." Even the Japanese Mask has a yellow liner. It has been so grey around here lately that my eye was being drawn to a warmer color...yellow. I guess that is why I collect yellow Bauer ware. It is a bright cheery color that brings me warmth.
We will be posting to our blog in the very near future! It has been so stormy, here on the central Oregon Coast, that it has had all of our attention. Spring Breaks are just around the corner. We are getting ready! Talk to you soon.
Dan and I are staging a Store Room SALE this weekend, March 10th and 11th. We have two storerooms in our Antique Mall and things have accumulated for 13 years. We are digging them out and staging a Store Room Sale that will be accessed through the Holmes Road side of our business property. I have taken a few pictures and will post more over the next couple of days, either here, or on our facebook page. Oh yes, the Sale can be entered at 9AM on Saturday and 11AM on Sunday. It is going to be crazy, fun and filled with wacky stuff.
This doll scares me. I don't know where it came from.
This lantern has been electrified. It still is cool. It was hard to let it go.
Our Mall occupies the old hardware store here in Lincoln City. It's last incarnation was as a True Value. We found this sign in our conference room upstairs behind a table.
So you are getting a sneak preview. It is going to be a lot of different things and it is time to let it all GO! Don't miss it and it is worth the trip over. Check us out on facebook for updates!
