With the snow cleared and the kids back to school, I headed out for some much needed treasure hunting. There were no scheduled estate sales due to inclement weather and the thrift stores have been so picked over so I headed to a local antique mall to see what I could find.
A first...head vase. Is she not the cutest. Do not ask me to pick between Alice and Gidget. That's what I named her. After those sweet Gidget movies. Just perfect. I have added her to my desk to hold my small scissors collection.
Klutz that I am, I almost stepped on this sweet doll dresser from the 60s. Loving all the colors and details. It too, is now safely off the floor and on my desk for all to see.
This is what Vintage Love for me is. A good decal. Great color and chipped paint. Yum!
I passed this print several times. It has such a a pretty image and the frame has the red stripe. I knew I would kick myself if I didn't pick it up.
I am not much for antique stores as I always feel like I am getting taken. the prices are ridiculously high. It seems like they want to keep their items with those prices. My issue with the shops is the way they pack the goods in so tight you can't even get through a booth. Really people, please don't put such precious pieces on the floor. Heaven knows what else I left because I didn't hit it with my foot.
I do hope there is a good estate sale next week, I am longing for a bargain and a treasure. Today was a bit sparse on the goods and exhausting picking through a sea of clutter.
