Rainbow Unicorn wants to remind all of you that October is LGBTQ history month. And Columbia Pride is in a few weeks. Be safe. Be kind. And just be YOU!
31 days of Halloween begins today! Usually I'd post 30 days of Costume ideas and inspirations but this year I'm just not that organized so I'll compromise with little Halloween things I make or own. You've probably seen one version of this last month but I wasn't 100% happy with it so I added things including the witch! I made a new & improved broom and added the little ghost and pumpkin to the mantle. Also found the perfect little woven basket. Painted it orange, added black ribbon trim and popped in some greenery to balance out the colors of the witch on the left. I just wish the black cat would show up better. Oh well....Happy Halloween 2017 folks! Here we go!
You can never have too many Halloween themed PEZ dispensers!
Yet another wonderful gift of a vintage SL Brunette Skipper from "you know who you are"! Thank you so much! So, it dawned on me that last years Hallmark House Ornament might just be perfect scale under a tree for this years Christmas diorama. I dug one out of a pile and sure enough...perfect accessory! For those of you that already knew this I apologize for geeking out. For those of you that didn't know....and do stuff like this...have fun with it!
My new FREE vintage snack/candy rack imma use for spray paint storage!!!! I've been eyeballing it for a few months when I found out our dealer was vacating her booth....so when I saw it getting wheeled out I asked if I could have it! So happy she said "yes"! Thanks Boo...you'll be missed at #oldmillantiquemall
Yaaasssss!!!!! Spotted this tiny tin cookie box house at work today locked in a case!!! I've never seen one like this before. Our German grandmother (Oma) would send big boxes of sweets and cookies to us for Christmas in wonderful big lithographed tin boxes but THIS little box is a treat for my eyes!!!!! #germany #germancookies #lebkuchen #vintage #oldmillantiquemall #tinhouse #cookies #lithography #weinachtsmarkt #christmas #oma #sold
Super close up of a vintage faceted cheap disco ball ring...."I wanna live inside color". It makes me happy.
So I hit 8 thrift stores/goodwills etc on the day I found those awesome Allsteel chairs...found lots of cheesy goodness! Halloween decorations and kitschy tchotchkes galore!
Well hellooo there my new Witch On A Stick lantern! She's not vintage....she's retro! But she's super cool and I luv her crazy metal curly fright hair!!!
Here's a closeup so you can hopefully see some of thing accessories!!! Cmon...the nurse has a freaking spoon and medicine bottle!!! Living it!!! Hope you've enjoyed the pics!
"This is Halloween, this is Halloween....Halloween, Halloween, halloween, halloween...." it'll be here in 63 days!!!!!! Yayyyyyyyy
Okay folks...today I spent my second day off bringing fall/autumn/Halloween and even some thanksgiving stuff to my booths! I hate summer! Anyways, nothing says fall holidays quite like witches and pumpkins. Stop by and check us out at 310 State Street in West Columbia, SC at #oldmillantiquemall Voted Best Antique Store Free Times 2017 by the people of Columbia! Thank you! #freetimessc
Before the hat....with her cat...so that's that.
Cmon, like WHO doesn't need a vintage chunky wood "puzzle" type rendering of a crazy cat lady clown rocking serious kicks??? I know somebody out there will give here a kitty a cool forever home!
My next project....turning this into a Halloween Haunted House!!!!
Had a lot of fun last night at the 2017 Best of Columbia 1980s party! Open bar, good food with lots and lots of bad/good 80s inspired clothes. I haven't danced to Billy Idol since 1986!!!! So much fun!
Omg found Holt Howard kitty S&P for only $11 at work! I'm totally buying them. Pristine condition! Yay for me.
So, Columbia SC Pride is still a few months away....October 20 & 21 actually, but I know there's some of you out there who could rock these still. 3 large and one medium left. But when I say "large" I mean skinny think large at approx 34" waist! Hahaha Hit me up if need these Pride swim trunks/shorts in your life!
More 80s inspired looks for an upcoming Best Of Columbia Free Timed 1980s party! If you wanna punch up your look, choose bright neon colors. Basic contemporary pieces in neon work just fine too like the hot pink dress or neon yellow high-low "mullet" dress over leggings. Bring the 80s with accessories like headbands, jewelry, shoes and even hair! Check out #oldmillantiquemall on 310 State Street #westcolumbiasc upstairs in booth TYL245!
Bwahahaha god I'd make an unfortunate looking woman! Just wanted to share my new vintage wigbox! Now I've got it in orange/yellow, pink/purple AND turquoise/green! Plus these awesome 100% "European real hair" wigs! It's the simple things in life that make me happy....
Today....three of "ME" went to work. 1. The early morning, full of energy happy self. 2. The midday kinda tired, kinda hungry self. And 3. The end day hot, sticky sweaty over-it self. Couldn't have done it without youz guys! Thanks.
At the old Mill Antique Mall here in West Columbia SC. They have all kinds of old Mason jars that I am falling in love with. They also have some Delfts Blue Thing. I might have to come back when I have saved some money. #oldmillantiques #oldmillantiquemall #oldjars #oldmasonjars #masonjars #funtimes
Awesome printed fabric mounted on wooden frame with different fonts and cities creating the shape of Deutschland! I love it....
What a charming little town, Mullica Hill, NJ. Everyone was so relaxed and welcoming in this friendly town. The Old Mill Antique Mall was filled with treasures of yesteryear. Anyone under 30 wouldn't know what half these things were. My favorites are always the dollhouse miniatures. I bought the cutest red bicycle built for two! 🚲The record albums are fun to see too! 🔹If you're looking for something unique and special to charm your home, you must go to this quaint town. 🔹After shopping for hours, The Blue Plate was a perfect place for an iced tea, and delicious pear and walnut salad. 🍅We ended our day at Rosie's garden market. How wonderful to get fresh Jersey tomatoes, peaches and blueberries. Their homemade jams and dressings are amazing too. What a lovely summer day! . . . . #sunshine #antiques #antiqueshop #telephones #recordplayers #kitchengadgets #dollhouses #miniatures #quaint #yesteryear #farmhousedesign #farmhouseinteriors #rosiesmarket #blueplaterestaurant #oldmillantiquemall #mullicahillnj #lifestyle #livebeautifullytoday
Kevin's last day off before 7 days on. We had brunch at the Gourmet Shop, stopped by to visit our friends at Pecknel, picked up a few neat bargains at Hip Wa Zee (K found a cool belt buckle, I found a blue velvet choker, gold slip, glitter leopard print lamé slip dress, and Venetian Carnivale silk scarf), at the hottest point we grabbed a smoothie at Good Life Cafe, checked out the Old Mill Antique Mall and found some miniatures for our stop motion animation video for Friskeez, then visited the Jam Room to donate some stuff and talk music gear with friends, after getting home I washed some 45s and Kevin played some Xbox, we watched "I Am the Pretty Thing that Lives in the House," and now it's night night after this Saxon video on Metal Mayhem 🐱💖🌛 #dayoff #capers #hipwazee #oldmillantiquemall #outandabout #aroundtown #columbia #colasc #sodacity #vintage #finds
I know I've been posting a LOT of pics of "thrifted treasures" lately but I'm gonnna reel that in a bit after this big Anniversary Sale we're having this weekend! Time to get back to my mannequins and playing dress up with them...yknow...like normal people do.
Ok, today was SUPER productive! Not only did I start filling my NEW third booth at #oldmillantiquemall but I finally painted the shutters and flower box in my "home sweet home" booth. I still need to order the lace German "cafe curtains" (so you can see inside this booth) but it's definitely coming together as planned. Next: paint all the side bars dark brown and create the German style faux beamed panels for above and below the window. (Note to self: find that German flag from last years' Oktoberfest display)
Last but not least this cutie patutie piggy bank!!! I cant believe I waited a whole year to come back for this!! Most of all I can't believe it was still there! Who wouldn't want this adorable piggy?? ...now to collect more 😋 #vintagepiggybank #vintagelife #OldMillAntiqueMall #vintage
Close up of the "interior" window freshened up with some color. Lots to do still even though I spent 3 days "off" working in my booths. It's a never ending routine of bringing in merchandise and making sure to fill the gaps after things sell. I absolutely love it!
Ok. Step two: hang shutters. Check. Next up: paint them and the flower box (NO I'm not leaving them raw and natural) Yes some people like that "weathered" look...I am not one of those people. I prefer a fresh coat of COLOR! A nice deep green.
Much thanks to an extremely generous person for gifting this to me last month! I used to own around 50 vinyl Barbie cases when I lived in LA. Sold em all on eBay before moving back to SF. I forgot how much I loved them!
