There are several nice outdoor antique shows in and around our town during the summer. People set up tables in the park and sell their wares. The kids and I had such fun looking around for things for the house. Because this house is a bit bigger than our last, we have some nooks to fill.
The girls looked for quite some time at the costume jewelry.
There were many tables of linens.
I thought I'd show you some of the things that came home with us. First, know that I am borderline obsessed with old luggage and, most especially, train cases. So I was pretty thrilled when I found these for a few dollars each.
and I was excited about this one too...
Vintage hat box
Wooden berry picking basket
two fabulous old cameras
I also found two suitacases for the girls room in which to store doll clothing as well as Barbies and All of Their Gear. When stacked, the suitcases look nice and also make the contents portable for visits to friend's houses or rainy day doll adventures on the front porch.
I also picked up some old bottles at a yard sale across the street last weekend. The home owner owned a restaurant in town and had been building an outside eating area on the place when he discovered all of the bottles buried on the site. Many are from local dairies or other businesses. I thought they looked pretty in the window. Reminded me of beach glass. :)
Thanks for visiting me. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
