I hope everyone had a nice weekend!
I feel like we had a whirlwind weekend! We spent our 3 days at a flea market and antique shops.
The flea market was the best I've ever seen....I think I went a little overboard but when you see things that you love and you know you'll never see again, plus the prices were so good...really good...what else can you do but give in and buy it!
This was a very large and heavy old bottle that I found yesterday in an antique shop. You can't tell here but it's 10" tall and says Dr. Cummings Vegetine...I looked it up and it's one of those cure all tonics.
I just love the color, size and weight of this bottle and the hazing inside is just perfect.
We brought home 2 truck loads of stuff! Most of it is big stuff like 2 metal chairs (almost free), my new/old vanity (old buffet) for $15, a metal cabinet for $10, a vintage bicycle for my garden. Thank goodness Mr Wild gave in and came along, he actually found the best stuff. We went early Saturday morning, then it rained so much that we had to quit. We went back on Sunday because I found a check in my checkbook that I forgot to give to a vendor...I felt terrible! I've never done that before!
We found a few more small things and then as if we hadn't looked at enough 'good junk' we stopped at one antique store on the way home, it was hot, humid and very windy, a good day to bum around. That day we only had the car, the truck was still full because of the rain.
I found an awesome old cast iron garden set that has been on my wish list (they came way down on the price) so we had to go back to the store on Monday with the truck to get that. After thinking about an old wicker chair all night ($20, it needs cushions, I can't wait to find the right fabric) I decided to get it too so we had another full truckload. We stopped at one more antique shop and I found this pretty bottle and some beautiful china that I'll save for later.
We were busy running around all weekend but we sure had a good weekend!
Thanks for stopping!
