A Short Stay

I often buy things "just because" they are cool, interesting, old, nifty, amusing or just way too good to pass up.  A LOT of times I don't have any need/space or use for them.  Please note that this is how "unintentional" vintage vendors are created!
I recently put together a display in my entry out of finds from the World's Longest Yard Sale (STILL just about the best time EVER).  It's only on loan.  I love the table but it isn't really my style.  It will go to a sale in the next couple of months.
Ditto the berry garland.
The enormous ironstone platter IS a keeper and will probably move around the house a great deal.
The driftwood ring is one of a pair which came from my favorite booth of the day.  We'll be keeping those for a LONG time.
I had the glass shade and round mirror in my stash so was easily able to pull things from here and there to create the "scene".  The beauty of junque is that if you pick enough of it you can ALWAYS make an inexpensive and unique display!  At least that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it.

You hit the nail on the head - that is exactly where vintage vendors come from! (or at least how I got started) There are way too many things that are too good to pass up!
