A new find-Camp to Castle Consignment


It's a rare day when I don't have anything scheduled but today was that kind of day. It was snowing but the weather wasn't too bad so I ventured out to Reading.

First, breakfast at Aroma Cafe with my sister.  Then on to Camp to Castle Consignment, a fairly new store on Route 28 in Reading, Massachusetts.



Furnishings and home decor from a variety of eras were on display. This little green stove caught my eye immediately. So cute!


I wish I had room for it in my kitchen! I have a spot for it but I would have to move my antique black chest elsewhere in my condo.  The chest is good for storage too and the stove? Well not so much.


These hatboxes were adorable. I did take a second look at them but they did not go home with me.


If I had been looking for a table I would have liked this one. I am drawn to the half moon shape.


I am always on the lookout for a good tea/coffee set.  This one was a beauty!


I have a growing collection of vintage suitcases. So this one went home with me.  I love to use them as extra storage since I have a lack of closet space at home.


The previous photos I took with my phone's camera. This one I took once I got the suitcase home. It is a vintage leather Samsonite and the inside was in very nice condition.


I also collect vintage rhinestone pins. Sometimes I wear them or I use them as package toppers or napkin rings.  I might also make them into magnets. The top one is actually a belt buckle.


I also bought this set of 4 pins. I must confess I really only wanted the key pins but they were sold as a set. The candle pin is cute too.

Camp to Castle Consignment was doing a brisk business today. A young woman bought a table and a rug and a couple bought some items too. So happy to see this small business thriving in a tough economy. The owner, Lauren, told me they get new merchandise in every day so I definitely see another visit in my future.

Consignment shops are a favorite of mine. You either hit big or you don't. This one looks like a good one.
I am going to have to check this place out! I love vintage rhinestone pins too...they bring just the right amount of sparkle. Thanks for sharing :)
