October is breast cancer awareness month

October is breast cancer awareness month. Everywhere you look, you are reminded of the efforts going into finding a cure for and helping people deal with the effects of breast cancer. NFL players are wearing pink, stores feature displays and advertisements, and television commercials are all supporting breast cancer awareness and the search for a cure. Almost everyone knows someone who has been affected by breast cancer (have lost a friend or family member, is currently fighting the battle, or is a survivor). To do our part for breast cancer awareness, we have listed an auction with 100% of the proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure charity. This item is a 3" tall miniature bear figurine made of crushed pecan shells. This figurine is in a praying stance, and we think maybe she is praying for a cure. Take a look at this cute little figurine at Breast-Cancer-Charity-Auction

While you are there, check out the other items in our store, Debonaire Flea Market.

Help in the fight against breast cancer by helping spread the word to everyone that early detection is the key to survival. Maybe one day soon, there will be a cure.

Remember the days before vacuum cleaners when cleaning a rug was accomplished by using a rug beater to clean a rug?

Remember the days before vacuum cleaners when cleaning a rug was accomplished by hanging it and using a rug beater to beat it clean? Well, we have come across some very unique items - miniature rug beaters. At an estate sale, we purchased several different miniature rug beaters that range in size from 5 1/4 x 2 to 7 x 3 1/4 . These miniatures are replicas of the original tools that were used many years ago, and feature different designs including double circles & hearts, animals, and girl shapes. These items are in very good shape, although we don’t know how old they are. Each one is made of wire with wooden handles (most are black wire).
Clink on our store link Debonaire Flea Market to view miniature versions of these once popular cleaning tools, or purchase one today as a reminder of years and times gone by.
