March 20, 2013Some of This, Some of That – My Latest Antique show finds!
The first of the spring antique shows was on here this past weekend, and I thought I would show you what I found!
This one is an interesting print. I picked it up because I liked the turquoise in it, but the pink shades are not something I have a lot of in my house. I might end up doing a purse or something like that out of it.
This one is my favourite, as he looks like a Chihuahua to me, and I’ve been looking for a Chihuahua statue since I started my collection.
And now for something a little odd…
This was Darren’s purchase. I think for the entire time I’ve known him (and probably before!) he’s been lamenting about this cheese that they don’t make any more that he used to eat when he was a kid. So, we happen upon this candle, and he got a bit excited, since he said that was the type of cheese he’s been looking for all this time. But, then we got the candle home, and he looked more closely, and said that it was not in fact the same type of cheese, as the one he used to eat was not individually wrapped. So, now we have an odd cheese candle.
And finally, this is not mid-century, but I am showing it off anyway …
I’ve been looking for some time for a toy sewing machine for Ella. I’ve had a hard time finding one that was both in working condition, and at a price that I wanted to pay. I was pretty excited to come across this little Pfaff for $15! I also really liked the fact that it had both the hand crank and foot pedal options. It seems to look like it should work, so I am crossing my fingers that it actually does!
What about the rest of you? Any exciting finds lately?
