The chappeau belonged to the shop. I felt like a total mannequin in it!

I don't know your name buddy but I'm diggin' the Hawaiian!
How It worked: Those those of us who brought items to trade put our names and an approximate value on each item. The items all went onto tables, and people mingled. If you saw something you liked you looked for the person with a name tag that matched the name on the item. Then you played "Let's Make a Deal" and you showed them what you had brought. If they saw something they liked, then you made a trade! The TRADE BELL was then exuberantly rung and everyone clapped and cheered!
All the REALLY big names were in attendance...
The Kennedy's dropped by...
Marilyn just breezed by for a minute...
Oh yes, ALL the big names were there!
The shop recently moved to bigger digs and it was still jam packed with great stuff everywhere you turned!
There are 3 count 'em..3 beaters on this mixer!

Super sweet old cigarette machine. You don't see these very often!
Neat old reel to reel Hi-Fi equipment
Knick Knacks galore!
Funny naughty plate!
We all did really well in the trading department. I got a sweet yellow metal Tonka truck and an old radio. I let the other girls use some of the other items I brought to help them make trades. Andi got a vintage cook book. Charlene got a few knick knacks and really cute wiener dog painting :-) But Stephanie did the best of us all! Check out her haul:
These crack me up!
The mirror isn't in perfect shape, but that's okay because she plans on using it daily!
Here is is all lit up. Its so brilliant!
It was a great event and we will definitely be going back for the next one! Super Duper thanks to Adrienne and Chris, the owners of Atta Boy Vintage for thinking of an hosting the "Shop & Swap"!!! We will see you next time!
