It was actually completely worth the drive if for no other reason, that we got to hang out together and get loads of inspiration. So here I am giving back a little inspiration and just a taste of all the great finds we found. ;)
This one I SOOOO wanted but the Hubby turned his nose up at the slight discoloration between the lid and the tin. I guess hes right that if the lid doesn't mach you never know what was in the tin before the lid read pretzels. After all, we did find a cute wooden contender that I didn't happen to snap a photo of that was super cute but turned out to be a children's toilet bowl holder. umm yeah, eww. This next one I just loved to pieces (no pun intended)
But with a $65 price tag I had to say no. I know that's not bad for a quilt ( and this one was made well too), call me cheap but I just couldn't see myself spending that much on something that I could make for the same amount, if not cheaper. So, even though the colors were amazing it just wasn't meant to be.
Olly getting a dig out of these. there is just something about antique toys that you just can't get in mass produced, manufactured toys now day (and I don't mean lead paint 0.o ). Sadly, we didn't walk away with any other these great finds. No, instead we got this...
Which kicks the butt of ALL the other things we found! Why? because we have been looking for a antique chair like this seance Hubby and I got married a year ago! Now its not that hard to find this style of chair but to find one in a reasonable price and this style and in good condition is a completely different story. The amazing thing is that the original price on this sweetie was actually around the same price of ones I have found on cregslist and at other antique shops. We were blessed that the shop was going out of business (q.q because we loved it and just found out about it) and so everything was on sale and the owner was super willing to bargain! This was the price tag...
So how did you all spend your weekend? Have you ever gotten a great deal on something or had the thrill of haggling something down to a great price? How may antiques are out there.. would love to share finds. Anyone one how how to reupholster a chair like this?
