Treasury challenge

HHU Team and Friends of HHU run a regular Treasury Challenge to feature wonderful items for sale on etsy in team members' and others' shops on the chosen theme.

With the holidays fast approaching and many schools having broken up we decided to tackle the sometimes difficult task of what to pack in your suitcase.

Marie from OldAunt'sAttic created this fantastic treasury entitled " Pack your bags".Take a look at the treasury which we have featured below.

OldAunt'sAttic is a relatively new shop to etsy full of a wonderfully diverse collection of vintage items.Marie loves searching and then finding something special. Many of the items in her shop were purchased or given with love and used with care. There is china, glass, ornaments, maybe a beautiful clutch bag  and lots of fascinating pieces in the attic many of which will bring a smile to your face, bring back treasured memories or make you chuckle. We ask you to brouse around OldAunt'sAttic and tell us on the comment box below the treasury which item is your favourite and why.

We love hearing your views-Thank you!

What were our favourites in OldAunt'sAttic?

 Such wonderful vintage items in Marie's shop! Hard to pick a favorite, but I think mine would be this sweet vase


Nancy

I love this little jar. My Mom had a vase with similar little flowers.


April

Love love the deviled egg plate! I might just have to buy it!!


Jewels byTrish

 I  love all of her items, but this green vase really caught my eye! Would look great alone or bursting with flowers!

Though this is not my favorite thing in the shop, it brings back wonderful memories for me because my Dad was given one of these as a retirement gift. And he used it every time he and my Mom went on a car trip.

These glasses would be perfect for mint tea! Love the leaf pattern and the frosted glass.
