Moments From the Shiny (Brite) Stars TV Debut!

Hey all!  Were you were able to catch the Shiny Brite's TV debut last night on The Fosters?  I was a proud momma and took many photos.  So, if you missed it, here they are for you to see!

She's holding this exact box!

An empty Coby box sitting there.  
These beautiful pearly white ornaments were used a lot on the tree.

Also above was this box.
I was really sad they didn't feature these beautiful ornaments.

Original picture from my etsy shop.
See the pretty green mica one above?

She's holding one of these, but they put pink in instead.

She's holding one of the many empty boxes I sold.

Another empty box above in a shot.
See the bright orange sticker?
That's how I knew it was mine!

The prop buyer requested lots of empty boxes.

So glad that at least one of the garlands made a debut.

This is the best tree shot I can get.
They did use most of the ornaments purchased from me on it!

So, plenty of my Shiny Brite babies that traveled out to Burbank (Warner Bros Studios) didn't make it on the show, but as you can see, many of them did!  I've sold to magazines, movie studios, etc. before, but to date, this has been my best (most viewed) showing!

Thanks WB for helping me keep my dream of doing this for a full-time gig alive.
Contact me any time.  Especially if it's for more Shiny Brites.

My TV Debut

Remember the large order of vintage Christmas I sent to Warner Brothers Studios back in September? Here's a little reminder!

Well, I finally have the airing information for you guys!  My stuff will be featured in the Christmas Special of The Fosters.  It will air on ABC Family on Monday, December 8th at 8PM EST / 7PM Central.  I'll be in class, doing a final presentation for my accounting class that night, so I'll be DVRing it.  Can't wait to take screen shots of my stuff.  It's like actually knowing someone on a TV show.  Except it's Shiny Brites instead of a person.

The Holidays Have Officially Arrived at My Booths!

Hey all!  Yet another weekend where I didn't buy anything.  However I had plenty to take to my booths, since the holidays are upon us!  I didn't move a whole bunch around that was already there, but I added quite a bit!  Here's a peek at what it looked like before I spent 4 1/2 hours there on Friday afternoon.

The New Booth:

Can you spy any vintage Christmas?

 I need a sale with tons of 45s.
I can barely keep them in stock.

I spy a vintage chenille wrapped Christmas wreath.

A little bit of Lefton holly berry pattern.
Perfect for Christmas.
And added a bag of Jewelbrite ornaments.

Other bits of vintage Christmas.

And some more.

I even hung some bottle brush wreaths on the wall.

Added a bag of vintage Japan santas.

I filled a huge enamel basin with baggies of little vintage Christmas bits.

The Old Booth:

How do you like my new Christmas color themed display?
I surprising don't have a ton of red things in my booth.

 I changed up the postcard display from general postcards.
Now the 3 upcoming holidays are up there.

 I try to use up every little space in my booth.
Even this small space in between the beam.
I wish I had a little shelving unit that fit in here.

 A whole shelving unit full of Christmas.

 And a table full too!
