Susan I love the head vases. I almost started that collection, but decided not to, of course never say never. I would leave the flowers in the vases. I think they would sell better with the flowers than without. Great finds.


Always happy to give advice! keep the flowers. The planters are kitschier with them and someone can always remove them without guilt (plastic flowers? puh-leeez!), but enjoy the look for as long as they want.


I have seen the head vases in magazines a lot (very desired collectables), but I've never seen them used for flowers. They've always been bare or sometimes with make-up brushes. I actually think the daisies in the top one looks cute (real would be better) - and the other looks like the '40s hats women wore. So I think listing them with the flowers is a good idea - gives 'em personality - they can always remove them.


The woman did a nice job with her arrangements. Plastic flowers were in style at the time, so they do seem appropriate. My mom, 89, loves her plastic flowers. I have been able to get her to use some silk ones, but she does do a nice job arranging them. Also, as everyone said, they can pull them out after buying if they like, but the arrangements are well done, for plastic, anyway.


Susan I must admit I haven't been to this beautiful blog before but consider me a follower now. We certainly seem to share a love of similar things...children's dresser to start. Nice to find another beautiful read...Renee


I'd probably leave them in because they're so artistically arranged. If they were just a bunch on a stem crammed into the vase, I'd remove them. But the arrangements are very fitting for the era and containers. They seem to complete the look. A buyer is always going to do with it what they want anyway, so if they're selling as is - I'd keep them intact.


Thank you for all of the good advice! I really appreciate it.

As suggested, I think I'll sell these pieces as is and let their new owners decide if they want to keep the arrangements intact or not.
