The New York tablecloth is great! I'm always drawn to vintage linens.

Angie said...

Drooling over that NY tablecloth (I live in Manhattan). I have a nice globe collection- I love the colors of old globes. The little bowling sets are also cute. Nice selection!

kayduh said...

Love the globe bank, would be a great gift for one of my nephews!

Lex said...

Love the NY table cloth and all the old bowling sets. Of course, the globes are fabulous. I've now bookmarked her Etsy page. LOVE Etsy.

claire said...

i love the shop & just about everything in it. the only thing i didn't see that i've been on the hunt for lately is some vintage baby clothes, for dressing my dog up.
i'm trying to emulate this guy:

only with a little more vintage flair.
my dogs are gonna love it.
anyhoo, the shop is fabulous, as is the globe!

Texan Couture said...

I love the modern bird bowls, lusterware teacups & apple trinket box. I would like to see more dishes and barware because I also love the Swank cocktail set. And you should start wearing a watch Marc Jacobs & Betsey Johnson has pretty unique fun ones!

Arlynn said...

Oohhh... I love all of these items! Especially the vintage pear dish and apple trinket box - not to mention those fabulous lustreware teacups!!!

Yodataco said...

My favorite has to be Birds of America Vol. 1!

Jessica said...

I love the tablecloth and the bowling pins. I kind of wish I had a small fire place then I could buy some and display them. I love the globe!

Monique said...

as many have observed i loved the new york table cloth...very original! also i really enjoyed the bird bowls, what a neat selection of vintage items...

Meredith said...

I love that all her stuff is tons of fun, bright colors. I love the pear-shaped dish, the old wooden child's blocks, and the modern bird bowls. So much fun for the kitchen!

I'd love the globe too. I'm sort of obsessed with old maps/globes.

Kelly Anne said...

Love all of the globes, of course, but I also like the brightly colored bowling pins. I've never seen such, and they're very fun. For more of...I'm always interested in seeing more vintage books available in shops.

Lindsay said...

I recently added Sweetshorn to my favorite sellers BECAUSE of all the vintage globes. After happening upon a very unique globe at a design store in San Francisco, I decided I'd start collecting my own. I'm also considering an old schoolroom desk and chairs for my dining area. I think years of helping my educator mother in the classroom has finally caught up to me...

Patricia said...

I love the NY Tablecloth, the Bird Mug Set and the Tiny Graphic Set. Something about vibrant colors, I'm always drawn to them.

love the shop! i've been looking for a globe like this for my husbands b-day. i would also love to get him the vintage bowling set.
thanks!

becky said...

of course, gotta love the globes. I'd like to see more vintage teacups tho... and you must start wearing a watch. my watch of choice... a GOLD mens watch. gotta go bold.

Chesa said...

love the vintage bowling pins and the globes, this is a great shop!

i don't wear a watch, it seems like I'd be giving in to some norm adulthood. i agree with becky, if you are going to do it, go bold and chunky, maybe even bling?

Eliza said...

what i love:
the purple bookplates
the pan am bag
the ice request card!
the apartment sign
the yellow dansk shaker
the alphabet blocks
the tiffany playing cards
the regency martini set

what i'd love to see more of:
games(board and card)from the 40s, 50s, and 60s - some of them are so amazing design-wise. even if all the pieces aren't there, they're great for display.

and i'm voting yes on the watch-wearing. some great old men's watch or maybe a nixon (one of the metal ones).

i had a globe like this in my room when i was little and have been missing it lately. i wish i knew what happened to it.

Katie said...

I love all the globes. I should start collecting them. I also love the glass pear dish.

Of course you should wear a watch, but not just the same watch all the time.

My favorites:

Virginia said...

LOVE the Marionette!

Libby said...

Its so hard to pick just one thing! One of my favorites is the yellow melamine bowl with the little silver handle...SO cute!

Christin said...

the teacups...my girls are all about teaparties these days. I didn't see the tablecloth everyone is gushing over; I'll have to go back.

Etsy is new to me so I honestly have no clue what to even ask for "more of". ?? but I'll be browsing it from now on.

nanny said...

Wooden Corkscrew and alphabet blocks are my choice.

a. said...

The globe's actually my favorite! But it seems like a nice, cute shop in general.

Elizabeth said...

on the watch front - if you are looking for something ridiculously oversized in a good way (i think) look at the swatch watches - i want the full blooded in silver. shhhnazy. this is one of my first comments i think...so hello!

Allison said...

The bowling decanter thing. That's pretty sweet. And I'm always pro-watch, but then I get freaked out if I can't see the time somewhere near me. Probably says something terrible about me.

Shop Girl said...

I love everything! especially the vintage blocks... I would like to see more of those. Thanks for the giveaway!

Tara- sharptara@hotmail said...

Oh Oh I love anything vintage. I adore the alphabet blocks, funky cutting board, bowling pins, apartment sign and this superduper cool globe!!!
Thank you for Sweetshorn's introduction!!

dogearedit said...

the bird bowls are awesome and so is the apple trinket box!

Kelsey said...

Oh my gosh, I love the pirate painting! Amazing. And all of the globes, of course!

Erin said...

Oh. My. Goodness.
Do you have any idea how long I've wanted a globe for???
I think I would put it on top of my bookshelf.
I love the HOLLYWOOD Regency Martini Set. I really like vintage glasses and plates!
You should definitely wear a watch, I would be lost without mine. I switch between Fossil, Roots, and Bulova watches.

modern eve said...

that is a beautiful collection of beautiful things! i'd love to see more for the kitchen...specifically fun serving pieces and linens.
but, i do love that globe! i hope i win!

I love the bird bowls. Th wear only makes them more interesting. -lisanathan@hotmail.com

Kathy said...

I love this shop. I discovered them last week and almost bought one of the bowling pin sets. I also had my eye on an illuminated globe but when I went to purchase it, someone had beat me to it. Everything is so cool.

Elliott said...

I am ice-picking my credit card out of the freezer so I can snag a set (or three) of vintage bowling pins. Perfect for our Big Lebowski party!

pve design said...

I just hopped over there and feel as though I took a trip to a bright and happy place. So many of the items remind me of my childhood. That turtle necklace would win a race with me. The globes are totally cool.
I'd love to win one.

The Mighty RandR said...

Well since you asked, I love the Colorful Bowling Pins, the APARTMENT Sign, and the 1960s PAN AM Bag. And also, of course, the globe. Every household needs one.

Erin said...

Love the owl pendant and the turtle necklace, but I'm a sucker for a good globe. Hope I win!

MissDot said...

The Mod Teacups. Swoooon.

Kelly said...

the bowling sets are awesome, especially the slender tall dark wood ones. and the vintage letter blocks. i have the perfect place in mind for this globe!

amy said...

Ooh, I love finding new awesome shops in etsy. Or, rather, other people finding them for me. :) Here, it's in the gold owl pendant, bird bowls, lustreware teacups and ALL the globes! I love globes ... esp vintage ones. I think their muted colours are sweet.
I lost a watch during our recent move & haven't replaced it yet. I don't miss it as much as I thought I would but I'm keeping my eyes open for a RED wraparound one. But I say YES because there are some awesome-looking ones out there!

-K- said...

I love the enamelware bowls. And all the globes. And the cute bowling sets. What a great new [to me] shop!

thesubstanceofstyle said...

I like the wooden blocks best, but I think it's a great selection. The only things I might suggest are more old games (already suggested) or vintage cookbooks.

As for the watch, I'm a fan of it. I don't have a suggestion for a company, but I do always pick Roman numerals for my watches.

jules said...

Oh, any of the wooden bowling pins for my two scrumptious boys!

As far as watches go, Rolex, preferably vintage and nothing flashy with diamonds or a big face. It's the only watch you will ever have to buy.

hillary said...

wow! where do i begin its all so lovely, can i have it all? theres a million things i want, i actually have most of the globes marked as my favorites on my profile. i love the hollywood martini set and the pan am bag is a must have!

ilona said...

I love the globes the best, and would love to see vintage maps, too. And, yes you should wear a watch, I'm partial to Fossil

Sandy said...

Loved, loved, loved the needlework of the boy crying. I always admire the patience and attention to detail that a piece such as this requires.

EgosRested said...

Oh, she's from Southern Pines :) I was born in Pinehurst and grew up in that area.

The vintage globes are my favorite. My grandparents had one similar to this : http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20797234

I always wanted that globe. I would spend hours looking at it and imagining myself traveling to many far away countries. I'd plan a "trip," run over to the encyclopedias, and read about the countries I would be "visiting."

I was such a nerd.

Anam said...

I've always loved globes and have always wished i had one. After looking at her shop I can't see a thing she's done wrong..perhaps make the name of it in the header a bit bolder. As for choosing a fave...any globe please.

Jai said...

I'd love the 1950's bowling set and all the globes are fab.

DonnaC said...

What a great little shop. I love vintage globes! I think that my favorite items on the site are the bowling pins - the colors and forms are so interesting. What would I love to see more of? - more stuff for walls.

Lolly Gaggle said...

Love the kitchen items -- the yellow melamine dish, the enamelware, the pink mosaic dish. Also the bird secret box. And finally, the vintage flight bags!

A big No vote on the watch. My wrist is itching just thinking about it.
