WHY DO I COLLECT?

Why do I collect? That's easy... because it's so much fun! Ever since I can remember I have been going to flea markets, antique shops, yard sales, you name it. Wherever I could find some sort of interesting treasure or cool piece of junk! I love driving around in search of new places or revisiting my favorite spots. I come from a family of collectors and have lived amongst antiques and collectibles my whole life. I have a passion for decorating especially with things that I find in my travels or even things found in the trash... which by the way can be some of the best stuff! But for those who share the same passion, I don't have to tell you... you all know what fun it is and how addicting it can be! Here I will share my collections, interesting finds, decorating tips, photos, projects, friends collections and thoughts and whatever else I may find along the way.

LITTLE DAIRY CREAMERS



These little dairy creamers with advertising is another one of my favorite collections. They were used in diners and restaurants in the 30s, 40s and 50s and came in a few sizes. I especially love the ones that came from Thompson's dairy... since that is my name! This collection started as I was walking down 9th avenue in Manhattan, my old neighborhood... a guy had some junk out on the sidewalk for sale and there were 4 of these little creamers... all from Homestead Dairies. I could not resist them... paid a dollar for all 4!

  1. My parents drank black coffee, so I got to drink the cream from these when I was little.
