Saturday Finds!

Today I slept in a bit and headed out for some Saturday morning treasure hunting and WOW what a morning! I stopped at a fabulous sale that Ginny (a fellow dealer from another Antiques mall) was having. I ended up spending about $30. and came home with a vintage table crumber, glass cloche, fabulou apothocary jar, 4 kidnes shaped dishes, a vintage bike basked (I'll share later what I did with that), 2 shabby chic bird candle holders, some ephemera, and an iron display piece. One quick stop on the way home yielded a bird cage, oversize fork and spoon (tags still on) and the cute bangle with different "E" fonts! "E" for Erin or Eccentric! I have to decide what I'm keeping and what s going to the shop tomorrow. Have a wonderful weekend!



The Peddlers Market was a success and so much fun! Linda and I set up our booth on Friday and then arrived Saturday morning to sell, shop, shop, shop, eat delicious apple pie, chicken salad sandwiches, sell and shop a little more! It was a great day and we met so many nice people out shopping on a gorgeous day in So. Cal. I ran into some dealer friends and our hubby's came by for a visit and some pie - we sent them each home with whole pies for later - did I mention that they had the best pie??! I bought some really nice vintage tablecloths (post pics later) and a cute little French print. The following day I took my youngest son thrifting - it was his request. It seems one of his cross country coaches shops for his clothes at a thrift store. Well I found the sweet Nashco signed tray - it's going with me to Minnesota in a few weeks for my sister it was a steal at $1.99. The vase is for me - it's the beautiful cream colored pottery that I collect and a bargain at $2.99! You might remember the mishap last year with our kitten and the vase that I adored very similar to this one.

I have also received my shipment of Romantic Homes Magazine. If you would like a copy please email me - it will be mailed to you quickly for the cost of $5.00 per issue including shipping. This is for the September issue!

Have a wonderful week - please stay tuned for my first give-away! I'm still putting goodies together for this one.
