  1. Love the tepees and the framed piece is awesome. I started collecting nun dolls a while back, Catholic school upbringing, collecting memories, just can’t help myself. NowI have to display them in my art room because no one else gets it. I have managed to stop adding. The ultimate test was a flea market baby doll dressed as a priest. I resisted but still think about the one that got away.
    Happy collecting!

  2. me likey! i’m surprised I haven’t seen these over the years while flea marketing. I’ve never used a shadow box, how did you mount the objects inside?

  3. Seriously, every time I read one of your posts I want to hug you. These are amazing. I’ve seen the salt and pepper shakers before but not sure I’ve seen the rest. Fabulous.

    • You are just the sweetest! Really glad that you get something out of my posts. It’s great just to have an audience to share my obsessions with.

      • 🙂 I just miss the discovery so much. CA/NY have amazing fleas, while Seattle does not. I can’t really figure out why we don’t either. Probably fine since we downsized to 1400 sq ft, and I still probably have 1600 sq ft worth of stuff.

  4. Hmm, I like these dolls, etc. I wonder if I could find any here in AZ? Going to keep a lookout for any of these pieces that I might stumble upon.

      • Hmmm, not sure why they did, but you did pique my curiosity over the totem pole as I’m thinking I might have one. I will have to dig through my things and see. I’ll get back to you on that.

  5. I’ll have to keep that in mind when we get our imaginary cabin. Or you could put together an amazing western picnic basket. They’d be perfect.

  7. Found a thermometer at the flea market in Tulsa, Ok today for $1.00. Going to hanging it in my vintage travel trailer someday. Thanks for filling me in on where it came from!

  8. I recently came across the plastic figurines at an estate sale that I fell in love with so I didn’t research on the school and now I’m falling in love with the school!

  9. We had the kachina doll, napkin holder, and salt shakers when I was a child in the 60’s

    I lost track of them but just came across a napkin holder!
