    I absolutely love the red bird statues and the one that looks like an angry Bambi! Too cute. And such nice vintage radios!

    Thanks guys, it was a ton of fun.

    Sara – We ended up buying a super cute lamp that I am going to post about, a ton of vintage cookbooks and I got a crinoline! I am so excited. We were in the Minoqua/Woodruff area in Wisconsin. My parents just bought a home up there!

    Holy mackerel, that pair of table lamps with the spaghetti-globes are inSANE. I’ve never seen a pair anything like that — wacky! Ditto the dish set with the square green coffee cups.

    Ruth, if you have any recollection of what they were priced at, I’d love to know.

    Great collection of photos!

      Hi Maggie!

      The lamps were $165 for the set. They were marked as “designer” lamps, but the designer wasn’t mentioned. Tom and I seriously considered buying them. In fact, we may go back in the spring and do just that! 🙂 I am not sure how much the dishes were, I think like $60? They were English and I thought I took a picture of the mark on the bottom, but I couldn’t find it on my camera. Rats!
