If you have transportation and some spare time I suggest heading east on the freeway to Lakeland and go to Peace Creek bead shop (Take 4 to the Polk County Parkway and get off at South Florida Ave. head south and it's on the left---4204 S. Florida Ave.). It's a great shop.

 The Strawberry Festival will probably be going on at that time. It's in Plant City, also east on the freeway. It's kind of a cow-tossing, pig-poking affair, but there are crafters and the best strawberries you've ever tasted.

Hmmm...inspiration galore in Ybor City. I love it there during the day (At night it becomes a club atmosphere).

Tampa is such a great place. Full of culture. I have moved a lot in my life and one of the moves was from Tampa to Orlando. Tampa has the whole Cuban influence, and the pirate history and Guavaween and all these great things and Orlando has...wait for it...Disney. Strange move. Then I moved from Orlando to West Palm and there is even less culture in WPB than in Orlando. Have fun in Tampa! It's definitely one of the best cities in FL.

Also try the Sal. Army on Military between Southern and Belvedere. It's next to the JCC thrift store. I have SCORED! there many times.

Faith Farm on 441 in Boynton is supposed to be pretty cool.

The Goodwill boutique on the island (Sunset?) has some good designer stuff.

They are building a new Goodwill near the corner of 441 and Belevedere, kind of near the new Walmart

Once again, I say yes, since those other getcrafty gals all live too far away....

Armstrong put out a book containing their ads. You might want to check it out. Pretty cool.

Oh, they are glorious!
I have some from when Spam first hit the market.
And Preperation H!

The great thing is, even though my collection is HUGE, I have never seen a duplicate ad in the Taschen Ads book series.

The interiors are the ones I cherish. Armstrong flooring ads are the best.

I need help like no other person has needed help before.
Well, maybe it's not that bad. Yet.
I have a problem.
I love to collect old ads. I have a collection that spans the 1930s to the 1980s.
Now. What can I do with them?
The food ads are getting modpodged onto a piece of sheet metal that will serve as a magnetic reminder board ala the one at Target. I am even taking spoon and fork drawer pulls and making them into magnets.
The ads with those great midcentury houses and interiors will become a part of an art project that is a cross between modern art and a designer's idea board.
Now, on to the rest...cars, airlines, public utilities, travel, girl-y products...

I have a TON of vintage craft books.  I have ones that other *websites that will go unnamed* are trying to sell for 50 bucks that I found for a dollar or less. I will scan in all that I have when I have the chance.

Sweet.  We have a Tiki themed kitchen, so I could paint on bamboo or a leopard print!

Sadly enough, I saw the picture and I immediately knew what to do with all the ads I have collected from magazines from 1938-1977. I have probably 1200 total and a good portion of them are food ads. I am going to make this and make the magnets out of either fork and spoon drawer pulls or baby silverware. Target, you may not get my money, but you did inspire me. Sorry if that goes against the spirit of the thread!!!

Cover the holes temporarily and fill the halves with coconut scented wax and add a wick. Voila! Candle.

I made a coconut bra to go in our Tiki themed kitchen and dining room. It was pretty easy. The straps are macrame hemp.

In a pinch, they double as a horse (Monty Python joke).
