Claire and I skipped out to the big antique mall this Monday. We haven't seen much at the thrift and estate sales have been too far out of the way. I knew better than to think big because this mall loves to store their goods rather than sell them. Two things made it home with us before our hunger made us cave.
Darling vintage tin shelf. Which incidentally was filled quickly!
The tag stated mint? I found a few dents but at 30% off and I was sold. Detailed with the NBC, ABC and CBS microphones this can sing a tune all day long to me.
Oh and the scrolling...too cute.
Claire just about talked me out of this but my heart was taken.
I probably paid ten dollars too much but it is chippy and scrolly and well its a plant stand.
Who doesn't want to see this loaded up with colorful vines or a collection of pastel McCoy pots?
I promised her I would paint it...it remains in the kitchen for now.
Alright, now back to the divine part. I wait all year for this Church sale. It always has great stuff. I even pay to get in early. Wait in line in the sun for this! For this? One indent ornament!
A feed sack doll dress and that's it! I paid more to get in than I spent in the Church.
Well, Lincoln scored a soccer ball so he is happy. He pops them faster than we can buy them.
Yep, there's more...remember I failed. Once I managed to make it back to my car with my dismal treasure trove I hefted it into the back...bag and all. My car doesn't need a key to turn it on you just have to have it on you. Well, as soon as I saw the trunk going down I knew I was in for it my keys were in the bag and I was locked out. Good times... Yes, God I hear you. I walked the short mile home and asked my newly driving son to give me a ride back to my car...all he could say was "fail"...
