my various life bugs

Madame C loves to shop! Whether browsing inside a beautifully set store, clicking that WATCH or BUY IT NOW button at online stores, or rummaging through garage sales with dusty items, Madame C is ready to shop. Looking at objet d’art is just joy to her senses. Typical everyday objects but artistically made that you can sense the care and passion that went into the creation of such item tickles her fancy. And she also gets her inspiration from these shopping strolls.

Today, she passed by her favorite realtor and closed the deal on a beautiful simple two-storey building. She plans to convert this into a shoe store to better display her sandals and footwear collection. The ground floor area will serve as the boutique with fabulous displays of sandals. On the second floor will be the work station for her beloved seamstresses and stocks of materials and ready to ship items. The roofdeck will be a cozy place to have tea and cookies with her clients and friends.

Just a block from her new building, she passed by a garage sale with various must-have items. She saw a birdhouse that will go well with her garden, a schooldesk for her boys, a grandfather clock for the new store, and yarns in a basket for knitting.

What excited her most is a small vintage sewing machine that will be used as a display at her new shop. This will definitly be a nice conversation piece.

  1. Yes Madame C I’m from Manila. Thanks a lot for the info… actually there is so much joy in finding things that are fit for sylvanians… Thanks again 🙂

  2. Hi Cha!  Are you from Manila, Philippines?  This vintage sewing machine I got from a Japan Surplus store here in South Metro Manila. You will notice there are a lot of Japanese stores that sells surplus items from Japan ranging from furniture, household items, sports equiptment and toys. This came with some toy items that they just throw in a big plastic container and you rummage through it. Not a very comfortable shopping experience and its a chance encounter. I love vintage items so I frequent curio shops and I just pick out things that are Sylvanian sized.

  3. Hi Madame C! I am Cha, I am also a Sylvanian Collector, just started last january… I saw your creations, very nice, the sandals and the gowns …. your vintage sewing machine is really cute, can you tell me where to get one. Thanks… hope to meet you someday 🙂
