polly made me do it!

I've been reading Polly's blog, Sassafras Stuff for awhile now and admiring her style from afar. Then came along this post. This is the post that got me into my car, driving an hour to peek inside The Olde Shoe Factory Antique Mall where I had the privilege of seeing Polly's style (and incredible merchandising!) firsthand. Just look at her amazing use of color and blending of vintage goods. She should be in a magazine!I was lucky to acquire a couple of those sweet little vocabulary cards from her booth.



A few more snaps around the store. Oh, how I wanted this old salesman's card of shoe buckles, but it was $45. so there it stayed.


Also got this Bobbsey Twins book for a dollar, so I was a happy camper.
If you ever find yourself in Lancaster, Ohio, this place is a treasure! Polly's booths alone are so worth the trip!
