Happy Monday to all!

Hope you found some treasure this weekend.

This sweet little angel wins my Find of the Weekend award. I shopped with my mother on Friday, and we checked out a shop in the Lakeside area, an old retail hub that we love.

This neighborhood is where Mom hauled  my brother and I to the grocery store when we were kids. It has been recreated into a vintage shopping area.

It's a great place to take Mom, who is 84 and doesn't have the shopping stamina that she once had.

This precious girl was in the 25 cent bin at McAdoo's Thrift.

She is in perfect shape with no breaks. Her name is Margaret, written at the bottom of her skirt. She carries a tiny black poodle and of course she has gold wings. She is stamped Made in Japan.

She will be coming soon to OneCoolCentury on etsy.

If you are close to RVA, check out Lakeside Avenue. Best best are McAdoo's, Vintage Pottery and Glass, RVA Antiques, and Pass It On. And , if you are hungry, have an empanada at Los Gauchos or a bbq at Virginia BBQ.

Wishing you an angel kind of day!


  1. Sweet find, Sharon. So glad you are still able to take your mom on little outings with you. Cherish those times!

    1. Thanks Mrs. A, and thanks for the hearts! A great boost today!
