Have you noticed

I am not sure if it is just me that has noticed this pattern or if anyone else has also seen a pattern at goodwill and local thrift stores. I swear there is a team on employees that must monitor blogs and Pinterest to see what the hottest trends and styles are because I have noticed several items going up in price. Has anyone else seen prices going up on certain items?

Distressed Dresser DIY

Dresser Makeover

The Hippie Haus Wife

I have always had a fondness for all things vintage (or antique, rustic, old, dated, etc). But I never really got into the whole “distressed” thing as I thought it always looked, well, crappy. I mean, who would pay good money for something that looks like it was dumped on the side of the road and left to rot (ok, maybe not that bad, but still)? Well, apparently there are a lot of people out there who would in fact pay a lot of money for these kinds of things.

Need A Gift?🎁🎁

I have wanted to add a little variety to my etsy shop for a long time now but have been so busy with a million other things. It’s amazing how your days at work seem so long and once I get home it seems like time flies by and it’s time for bed.

Well slowly I have got a few new items and hope to have more in the upcoming weeks that I will share with you as well.

Make sure u like my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Charm-City-Creative-Designs/214517511903785?ref=hl

Also check out my etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ahindle78 to see all the items in my shop.

I made a personalized utensil set for a coworkers baby shower gift basket and just loved how they turned out.

20130517-174225.jpg

20130517-174230.jpg
The utensil set comes with two sets of utensils but in this selection it only shows one because it came with the second set at pink and this gift was for a boy lol. The manufacturer mixes up the colors so I am not able to have specific requests for color choices except for the vinyl choices. I asked everyone who purchases to specify girl, boy or gender neutral and I can add the last name for personalization if they do not know name or what they are having. I can customize with stars, polka dots, hearts and more at customer request.

20130517-174612.jpg
I also added a sippy cup and snack containers to my shop as well the picture of that is above and it purchased as a set and again colors vary but please specify girl, boy or gender neutral if u do not know what u or your family member or friend is having. I will pick colors depending on what is in stock or on hand.
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Charm-City-Creative-Designs/214517511903785?ref=hl make sure to stop past and like my Facebook page and feel free to post on your page I would appreciate it.

Here are some of the pictures of the personalized water bottles I have made teachers for their students, Girl Scout troops, sports teams and one order was for bottles that was being used inside of the goody bags given at the party.
I have red, blue, green and silver water bottles and they can be personalized with the color vinyl u pick or I can pick if u like its up to u. For large orders of silver I ask for notice in advance as this item is on back order alot or hard to find in my area. I currently have some stock of silver on hand.

I also sell upcycled/repurposed items and don’t forget my vintage/antique items as well here are some pictures of those items and more in my etsy shop.

20130517-175622.jpg
The picture above is a wooden box that was very old and had to be brought into modern decor lol. It is painted purple with a clear coat and I used a pattern paper on the lid to add some fun to the box. The paper does have a clear coat on top as well. This item can be used in a child’s room to hold jewelry, small toys, in a office or adult bedroom to hold small items or in a foyer to collect small items and keys.

20130517-175854.jpg
The picture above is a cute retro vase in lime green. Add this to any decor to give your home a pop of color.

I still have vintage/antique items as well here are a few pics of what I have
