A couple weeks ago a friend and I decided to run to a couple of our favorite antique shops on a Friday afternoon. We took her van, loaded my girls and her girl up, popped in a dvd and hit the road! Betty’s antiques and the girls in Verona gave me my junkin’ fix for a few weeks. I’m sure the bug will hit again soon as the weather warms up:) I’m quite happy with what I found and VERY happy with the prices!
Old dressmakers hem marking tool – $1
Old labels – $.25 cents
Old metal freezer baskets – $7 each
one of the metal baskets now sits on top of my refrigerator holding all my fun, vintage tablecloths that I have long wanted to have out where I could see them instead of stuck away in a drawer. The other basket sits in my downstairs bathroom holding the overflow of hand towels that don’t have a home because the cabinets have never been finished. I didn’t take a picture of it-it’s not near as neat looking:)
I also found an old sewing basket full of odds and ends. It was marked $14. Not really needing the basket and not really wanting everything inside I dug through and pulled out what I wanted and asked if she would sell me just that. She shrugged and said, ‘Sure, how about $2?’ I was beyond thrilled!!
This seems to be old tatting spools of thread. There is a long piece of tatting that i untangled. Wish it could talk and tell me its story.
