I took a brief break this weekend from the fire burning in my backyard (1.5 miles away) and went to South Pasadena (just down the street). I was on the hunt for an antique postcard to use in my advertising for my upcoming events (going to be a busy fall, too.)
Anyway, into the antique store I went and I found a stack of Zito prints taken out of a book. I flipped through knowing that I would find Scotties and sure enough, three. Such an easy sale.
Finally, I was checking out and the proprietor mentioned that she had some Scottie pins, if I was interested. There were several to choose from, I left most of them for other collectors and came home with these three in their colorful hats.
It really is amazing how the pointy ears and tails really jump out at you, without even putting too much effort into looking.
