Oh Baby, Wait 'Til You See What's Coming!

Hi Everyone~

My husband just returned from a large buying trip--
and to say the least, I am super-excited. You will
be seeing many of the items in my Etsy store soon!



This 1800s baby buggy has spokes made of wood...
It's so adorable--and yes, it's going straight into
my house! This is not doll-size--It is very large
and so detailed.

So, you may wonder--how do we make these
purchases? He scours many shops, antique
malls, etc., sends me pics via the phone and
the decision is made on the spot. Fun? You bet!

As I get pieces repurposed, I'll be sharing them
on here soon.

Have a FUN weekend and a Happy 4th of July!

XO
Cindy

Hi Cindy!
Your hubs is a picker!!! Wish mine would do that, LOL!
I love the baby buggie, reminds me of the NY nannys pushing the little babies in the park.

Can't wait to see all the rest.

Hi Cindy, Looks like you are having fun! I have a photo of my mother as a baby in one of those carriages decorated in flowers for a baby parade. It would be beautiful to use as a decorative piece in a room. I know you will have it looking awesome. Hugs, Linda

Good Morning Cindy Sweetie...
I am telling your hubby is unique. Talk about a shopper. He's a keeper for sure. I can just see him walking the aisles and taking pictures sending them along to you. How fun for the both of you.

Can't wait to see what you do with this one. I know your head is spinning away with ideas.

Have a wonderful 4th sweet friend. Many hugs and so much love from Phoenix, Sherry

Suz said...

Cindy,
Are you and your husband antique dealers? I would think that would be a lot of work but, boy, there would be an element of fu, too. My friend, Donna, found a buggy that sat on the floor and had high handles.. It was quite old and was shaped almost like a rocket. We found it on the net and I wish I could remember more, She didn't buy it. It was $200 and the ones on the net were $100, though the shipping would have been phenomenal.

Do you have a store, too?

Hugs,
Suz

HI Cindy,

What a sweet baby carriage. I wonder about the mommy who first used that for her child :) :) I love imagining about the history of beautiful pieces like this ;) :) Have a Happy 4th of July :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Donna said...

Your baby buggy is so cute, Cindy! I can just picture you pushing Jamie around in it down the sidewalk:) And that is awesome that Ralph is able to buy for you, now maybe I need to give him my shopping list!! Happy 4th to you both!

sonya said...

Hi Cindy!

Oh Cindy. I can understand your excitment over this sweet baby buggy.

I remember having a doll size buggy much like this one when I was little.

I look forward to seeing what you will be adding to the store.
