The first one sent after I "moved" my shop


My Granny's Attic Antiques, Collectibles & more
Shop News November 2003

Granny is Back !! I never really went anywhere but I did move the shop and I lost track of a few of you in the shuffle.

I completely changed the look and feel of the web site and since I did it all myself it has taken a lot longer than anticipated to get everything up and running again. There are still some little bugs to work out and some interactive features that I still want to add, but it will all happen in due time.

I would like to encourage each of you to join our MSN Group, there is a link on the bottom of every page on the website - This can grow into a wonderful forum to discuss our antiques & collectibles, swap and barter and for each of you to share your vast knowledge with others and learn new things concerning the world of antiques & collectibles.


  • Lots of vintage pixies / elves
  • Tiny teapots
  • Copper tea kettles
  • Copper molds
  • Numerous vintage books
  • Vintage Art Gallery
  • Custom Plaques (handpainted by my oldest daughter)
  • & much, much more

I have located a few terrific online shopping sites so be sure to visit our Premier Partners Page for really unique websites to do some holiday shopping, especially if you have children on your shopping list.

Granny's Helpful Hints:  I finally got sick to death of all of the telephone solicitor phone calls coming into my home. Since I work at home and usually answer my phone when it rings, there were days when I would get 10 solicitation calls a day. It was bad and getting worse. So I finally registered with the National Do Not Call Registry - If you register now, telemarketers MUST stop calling & you can file a complaint in 3 months. I highly recommend registering, it has made me a much happier and more productive person.

Need a good laugh? You have got to see the singing horses -

Something other than bleach to clean with
A couple of months ago I was cleaning with bleach under my kitchen sink and I guess because the space was so small, I was overcome by the fumes. Even after my head stopped spinning, all that I could smell was bleach. So I set out on a mission to find a less noxious cleaning method .... and here it is.
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup Borax powder
2 cups warm water
Stir vigorously until the Borax dissolves. This will make 1.5 quarts of solution. Then fill a spray bottle. If you use a recycled bottle, clean it thoroughly and rinse with a 3-1 mixture of hot water and white vinegar. Apply generously over the mildew spot. Let it stand for 10 minutes, then sponge and rinse. This works well in the shower on grout too.

I hope that you take a moment to visit the shop. I have a poll set up to get your opinion and as always please feel free to e-mail me with suggestions, questions or needs.

I have a little surprise for you as you checkout if you make a purchase a 10% discount !!

Sincerely & many thanks,
Michelle - An eclectic shop with an eccentric owner
