Inventory Sneak Peek #4

For today's sneak peek, I have a couple of related items to show you, and they are too cute. The first is this darling antique iron baby crib. Love the patina on this one.

I could see the crib being used as a place to display gifts during a vintage themed baby shower like in the image below. It makes a great focal point. You could dress it up with vintage linens or just leave it as is.

We have many other vintage items that would go great with the crib... Antique baby clothes hanging from a clothesline would be precious at a shower. You could fill an apothecary jar -- we have lots of those -- with antique photographs of babies (maybe relatives of the baby-to-be, otherwise we have antique photos available). We have a lot of great tablecloths and other linens that would complement the other items. And milk glass (which we have lots of) would be a good choice for dinnerware and vases. We will be offering a package deal of vintage baby theme items for rent in the future -- stay tuned for details. I have yet to photograph these items but below are some similar ones.

If you want a more 50s/60s retro look we also have a vintage bassinet. I don't have a picture of that yet either, but it looks pretty much like the one below (although ours is white). It would also be too cute filled with gifts. Wouldn't it be fun to wrap the gifts in retro paper, too?

We have a lot of vintage baby stuff from the 50s and 60s that would look great with the bassinet like kitschy chalkware planters and figurines, old baby bottles, vintage baby toys...

All just killing me with cuteness! Call us and we will help you plan your baby shower today!
