A trunck show of vintage and new figurines angels, pillows, bear doll crafts at Vicky's Place

I put together a group of new and vintage figurines, pillows, crafts on my table at Vicky's Place. My window display took creative thinking. My new idea is to bring a shopping window into my internet store. I will be doing this more often. I use my decorative eyes, change this item and that item. Glory, it looks good to me, and I take a photo.

THE HEART PLATE IS OF ANGELS(I HAVE A FETISH FOR ANGELS). THE PLATE WAS MADE IN ITALY. THE PLATE HAS A SHABBY CHICK LOOK.
THE ANGEL TIN IS A GORGEOUS VINTAGE VICTORIAN SCENE.
I HAD THIS IN MY HOME FOR OVER 30 YEARS. IT IS TIME TO LET GO OF THIS BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE VICTORIAN TAPESTRY MIRROR TO A NEW HOME, COLLECTOR OR GIVE AS A GIFT.
THE VINTAGE MINK COLLAR WOULD BE A GREAT CRAFT CLOTHING FOR A DOLL OR BEAR. YOU COULD ALSO WEAR IT. IT IS AT A BARGAIN PRICE.
A VINTAGE PARIS FRANCE TAPESTRY PILLOW CASE COVER. YOU COULD STUFF IT AND CREATE A PILLOW FOR YOUR HOME.
A FUN EMBROIDERY CRAFT PROJECT TO CREATE UNIQUE VINTAGE KITCHEN TOWELS.

HAVE A FUN TIME SHOPPING AT VICKY'S PLACE ON EBAY. GIVING BACK GREEN RECYCLE, RESTYLE AND REUSE.
