Fleaologists Keeping Busy and Doing Good!! Come Support a Great Cause.

While selling our goodies at the Avenues Street Fair the week before last, we were approached by an individual with an opportunity to support a great cause.  The Sharing Place is an organization that provides grief support for children, teens and their families.  They are doing a fund raiser and asked us to contribute a and 'antique gift basket'. http://thesharingplace.org/
Cathie thought the items in the basket should reflect the interest of the cause, so we gathered items donated from six different flea.o.logy vendors, and put together this gift basket.

The basket includes baby and child related items from the turn of the century (thanks Bruce for the circa 1900 baby cup, to Paula for the baby spoon and fork set, to Cathie for the sweet baby slip trimed with inches and inches of crocheted lace and to Jenn for the antique Mother Goose Print) as well as items well into the forties, (Thanks Cathie for the adorable Rattle, Paula for the baby planters, and brush and comb set)

Is this the most charming and sunny rattle you have ever seen?

The statuette donated by Pat in the front is not vintage, but is very nicely done and the subject is a Victorian Mother and her baby, which made it perfect for the theme of the basket. Other items in the basket include an old children's book, a framed art picture of a child, a crocheted bib and a Scottie dog cookie cutter.

Cathie took the basket home to skillfully wrap up and adorn with a big floppy pastel bow.  It will be available for bid at the Sharing Place's main fund raising event:
