Not sure what my problem was today but I just wasn't in the best of moods! I did more looking than spending but still had a wonderful day. Here's my finds for the day.
First, if this doesn't keep the hubby out of trouble for a while, nothing will:
A box full of Stuart Woods books!
A tiny little hoe? For a dollar, must have, it's so primitive!
Spotted these from a row back and promptly ended a conversation with a booth owner to run over:
Don't worry, I went back to finish the conversation.
At an antique coop, I purchased my first two Shiny Brite ornaments! I have a bowl I wanted to fill with them last year but resisted, now it's time to start filling it. These two are Jack and Jill.
A nice gentleman came over and asked me if I'd like him to take them to the register area so I can continue shopping and I said okay, so they give you a number. I told him he'd better give me a good one and he didn't appreciate the pressure I put on him! LOL! Oh my, he gave me a crappy number, I was almost done when I ran into him again and told him, I'm not having any luck finding anything else I want. He asked me what number I wanted and jokingly, I said #1. I walked around and here he comes and tells me he found #1, here! Now go walk through the coop again! LOLOL! As it turns out, I did decide on something and it happened to be in his booth. He gave me a good discount and asked me if I was going to pay cash. When I said yes, he offered to take more off the item if I didn't go through the checkout. Is this legal? Do I have to meet you out in the parking lot or something? No, the dealers do it all the time. Okay, deal. Take a look!
It's a roll dispenser for wax paper etc.
But it's such a different shape, I just had to have it.
It needs a good cleaning but I'm sure it won't be a problem!
In the next shop, I found more Shiny Brites! Please note, I will NOT use these for the wreath I want to do.
The two on the left, in the center and bottom slots, are NOT Shiny Brites but I loved the subjects and graphics. Um, only $1.00 each!
Now, I tried to be patient. But after waiting a while and these people were not getting out of my way, I couldn't wait any longer and decided I was about to push them out of my way. I saw these beauties hanging on a wall, knew what they were and again, must haves. They are the tiniest PBN's!
Looked them up in the museum and they are only 4 x 5 1/2"! They came in a box with another one that is 12 x 16, so now I have more searching to do for the missing on! These are from the Painted Desert series.
After searching for more Christmas items for my wreath, I decided I have to return to the first place I visited on Thursday and really spend some time going through their misc. bags of Christmas items. They have walls full at this thrift shop, so I guess I'll be late getting home! :o)
