. . . the goal of getting to 100 posts!
So I'm slipping this one in before we leave for the land of 10,000 lakes. I don't think I've shown some things I've found lately. Most everything I found in Walnut, Iowa over Father's Day weekend. If you've never been to this big antique show, it is worth the time to go. But beware! It is advertised as an ANTIQUE show and the prices reflect it. Even the flea market
crap stuff is considered an antique and most is WAY over-priced (in my humble, cheapskate, looking for a bargain opinion).
There was one store that was packed to the rafters and had every-day prices. Everything was covered in dust and there was no rhyme or reason as to displays. When stuff came in, it was dropped where there was a space and left there until someone (me!) was willing to move other things to see what was behind them. My Kind Of Store!
See the price signs behind the jar? I was still grubbing around while my daughter was waiting for me by the door. A gal had a whole box full of these (darn! she got to them first!) and was telling her husband how she was taking them to the Junk Bonanza! I bet they will be triple what she paid for them! At least I got a cheap one!
Really into scales this summer for some reason (and NO! not the ones you stand on and faint after seeing the reason last year's pants don't fit) and have found some BIG ones and some small ones.
And since it is my summer birthday (it has already been WAY better than any January birthday ever was), this is so appropriate as to what we have planned for this weekend. I plan on embarassing my daughter where ever we go by NOT acting like the sane, mature, calm, rational lady that I truly am! (lol!)
I'm going shopping!
Talk to you all next week (in between looking for a job cuz I spent so much and advertising for a new daughter cuz her mother went bonkers at IKEA!) . . .
