And today we went to an antique show.
After having such a wonderful in Rhinebeck with my mother, I had been looking forward to driving up to their large antique show at the fair grounds this weekend.
But Lasdon Park down the street had it’s antique show today. Even better! Remember how L helped me haul the little ladder I found there two years ago?
This show is way smaller, but I have no business buying expensive antiques anyway, and I’m glad I saved on gas.
So I splurge and bought another, huge, lemonade and got L to walk with me for another few minutes.
We also stopped by T.J.Maxx, one of my favorite stores for home decorating, and I found this really cool wooden whale marked down to $20 that I just couldn’t pass up because L loves whales and it fits perfectly with an antique print of a whale I bought a while ago for L’s room.
So here is what I brought home from today’s antique “junking” trip:
I crave vintage and antique things — growing up in Germany has something to do with it, and my parents had an antique store.
They were just $2 a piece and I’ll find a cool way to display them.
Those vintage hinges where just $6 and I’ll hang them somewhere for decoration, and that antique teapot and vase fit perfectly with the little collection I already have.
A perfect weekend of “junking”, as the ladies from “Junk Gypsies” call it.
