Remember These? Retro Bakelite Bottle And Can Openers

So I have been busy these last few months selling vintage and collectibles on eBay and have totally neglected my blog! I know, it’s a problem I can’t seem to outgrow. One of my favorite things to collect and sell is vintage kitchenware. I recently bought a slew of bakelite kitchen and dinning ware and have been listing and selling them in my eBay store http://stores.ebay.com/gracealleytreasures Check it out! But today, in my blog post, I am featuring a pair of Bakelite handled bottle and can openers. Remember these? We had a few kicking around our kitchen growing up. I love bakelite! One has a swirled handle and the other is faux horn. I know you want to step back in time and retro up your kitchen or bar! Here is a link to the past http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=131116836573&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT

I’m hoping to be better about my posts and post a featured item once a week. I am not a good juggler but I vow to improve!

Animal up date and a few new listings.

Well if you are following you know that last week my dog decided to catch my bird in his mouth! She needless to say was not in a good way. Well, she got a vet visit this week and got the thumbs up from the vet. She is doing great and will most likely have a full recovery!! Yippie! She has been confined to a cat carrier and is not liking that too much but is being a real trooper about. it.photo-1

So the beginning of last week, I took a big step and opened an online store featuring handcrafted items I’ve created, vintage items, and soon to be added, supplies! It’s been a long time in the making but it’s here now! The store is Grace Alley Treasures and it can be found on Etsy. Here is a link to follow.www.etsy.com/shop/gracealleytreasures Also “like” me on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/GraceAlleyTreasures. I’d like to hear feed back on my store and my fan page so if you could/would let me know what you think. What you would add, what you would change and of course, if you like it! This blog is to talk about my store, crafting, collecting, art, photography, cooking and things that get my creative juices flowing. I have many passions and am looking to talk to people who share them.
