In my last post I talk about being a hoarder right? By the way the show Hoarders Buried Alive is on TLC not A&E. I watched last nights episode AND... one of those ladies was a fabric hoarder too. How ironic... LOL. Anyway, Steve and I were going to go to the Home and Garden show in Wooster, but instead decided since it was rainy we would go to the indoor flea market and antique store here in town. We go quite frequently because you never know what you might find. Most times we don't find anything, but yesterday we made a haul!!!!
Where am I gonna put all this stuff???? LOL
First of all I LOVE wooden spoons and some day Steve is going to make me a spoon rack... LOL The most expensive one was $3.00 but most were $1.00.
I need to make a few small repairs but I really liked how it was printed on paper and burnt around the edges. Sure I could've done it myself, but I would have never thought of it. LOL. $4.00
LOVE my boxes too. I like setting lights on top of boxes just to get them a little higher. $1.00 and $1.50.
Don't ask me what I'm going to do with another candle holder... LOL Steve wanted it because he liked it and wants to make some like it. On the bottom it says it was made in the historic town of Zoar here in Ohio. See the little dowel rod on the top you pull on it and it raises the candle holder up so you candle light and blow out your candle since the sides are all glass. Not sure if I'm going to paint this one or not.
Next is my pride and joy bargain of the day... Looks like a Betty lamp ( I think that's what it is called)... $1.00
Last but not least of the flea market and candle snuffer and candle holder $1.00 and $2.00.
Next we went around to the front of the building where the antique store is. Of course prices are much higher as compared to the flea market. LOL. I did find two things.
First ANOTHER candle holder. I think I'm gonna need some more candles. LOL I know it's not old but I liked the patina on it.
Then I found this cutter coverlet for $25.00. Not so sure I'm gonna be able to cut it though. Maybe if I fold it just right I can hide some of the holes and ripped edges.
So yep many of you are right. It is the thrill of the hunt. Now I just need to purge out some other stuff so I have room for this new stuff. LOL. Easier said than done.
