#TBT to another time I was feeling melancholy for different reasons. Today I'm missing @urbncommunity's URBN Market because I got hit with a wicked stomach bug - major bummer! Especially because after this weekend I'm taking a hiatus from estate sales and flea market vending till the fall to have a baby. The silver lining: I have one final vending event at Philly's @new_liberty_distillery this Saturday from 1-5. The weather's looking mighty fine, summery even, there'll be whiskey, great tunes by @birdiebusch and more and Philly's best crew of vendors (their words, not mine 😊). Oh, and I've got LOTS of new arrivals to share! Hope to see you there! #mousetrapvintage

Excited for next week's @urbncommunity's URBN market (Thursday 4/27) and @new_liberty_distillery's Dutch Malt Market (Saturday 4/29, tagged some of my favorite vendors/musicians!). Though thing have been a bit silent here, I've been gathering some great new stuff for you that I hope to preview here tomorrow. These are the last two Mouse Trap in-person events till I pop this baby out, so come see what's new and say 👋! #mousetrapvintage #urbanoutfitters #urbnmarket #newlibertydistillery #phillyhappenings

The 2400th @Etsy sale! Distressed leather forever! #mousetrapvintage #etsyvintage

Detail of a human skull cap @huntestatesalespa's Elkins Parks sale I thought was a fake till late yesterday. Was joking all along it'd make a great ashtray or candy bowl. Talk about gravitas....The story told by our nearly 90yo client is that his sons dug it up in the Virginia woods when they were kids, though an expert friend thinks it's more likely they lifted it from a classroom study specimen. Hopefully will get the true story from those kooky kids today, but you've gotta come to the sale this weekend to find out... #dumdumdaaahhhh #humanskull #skullcap #humanbone #curiosity #estatesalefinds #huntestatesalespa

I contributed a little photo magic ✨ to @dark_shine's latest art show! Opens next First Fri, April 7th at Olde City Creamery. There will be wine (and ice cream)! #philadelphia #firstfriday #arthappenings #artshow #fineartphotography #fashionphotography #moniqueturner #darkshine

Bringing a carload of vintage clothing, etc., including these two vests, from my basement hoard over to @greatestfriend's place for her estate sale this Saturday. Typically I do a spring purge out at the fleas or a good, old fashioned yard sale, but this time I'm going to be liquidating at one of @huntestatesalespa's events. May as well, right? Perks of owning your own estate sale company, right?? Event details over @huntestatesalespa (check the profile for a link, lots more photos will be added tonight!). #mousetrapvintage #huntestatesalespa #vintageclothing #fishtown #philadelphia #estatesale #estatesales

Fabric detail on a homesewn cafe apron made a long while ago from Depression era denim that I simply can't believe is still in the shop. Do yourself a favor and zoooom! #mousetrapvintage #etsyvintage #vintagedenim #antiquedenim #railroadstripe #1930s #1940s #denimapron #cafeapron

Tomorrow eve at 6pm @wagnerfreeinst is offering a marvelous free lecture on botanical collecting in the Victorian tropics. lt's the rock concert of lectures, apparently (interest so high, they might have to turn people away at the door - get there early!). Since I'm working outside of the city, sadly, I don't think I'll make it, but you should go, take diligent, well-illustrated notes and report back to me! #wagnerfreeinstitute #wagnerinstitute #wagnerinstituteofscience #victoriana #botany

So happy to see Hazel @thedeeps back here on IG. And, with a big (20% OFF!) sale in her two shops, TheDeeps & Pinguim on @etsy. Try to resist! I dare you! #thedeeps #antiquejewelry #etsyvintage #etsysale
