The Thrill Of The Hunt, Greenboro, NC

Back in late May '08, I visited a great little store in Greensboro called the The Thrill of The Hunt. It's a lovely little antique/thrift shop located on Battleground Avenue, one of the majors roads in town. I really enjoyed myself. I met the shop owner, Carol Poling, who was an absolutely a doll. She was both personal and approachable... in fact I thought she was a sale person up until I was about to leave - lol....

I took many pictures of the shop but unfortunately broke my camera phone and lost them in the process. :( However, I do have these photos of my purchases!


I purchased a vintage Chesterfield "They Satisfy!" Advertising Wall Thermometer Plaque. No, I don't smoke.. but NC is the tobacco capital of the world! Last time I was there I couldn't find any of the coveted cigar boxes so this time I 'had' to get something... LOL!


I found a pair of vintage tin Batman insignia pieces PERFECT to make earrings! A lovely little soft leather coin purse, (I recently paired with a great pair of new vintage gloves from Paris - see pix below) and a fun-fun 1940's vintage post card that read... "There's Gold In Them Thar Hills" (see at the end) - I guess the infamous or famous gold digger exist despite times, space, class & race! LOL I will be posting these things on my on line Etsy or eBay Stores.. If procrastination gets me as it commonly does... and you are interested... just pull my coattail!


BTW - If you are ever in Greensboro, North Carolina... Stop by The Thrill Of The Hunt! You will be pleasantly surprised.... in fact you'll be thrilled! OH and and don't forget to say Hi to Natasha Isabella Portialucca! (She's the really cool mannequin!)
