Hi everyone! Hope you're all well. My mom and I hit a couple really good antique stores that were having sales on Friday. It was lots of fun, and I found some cute things! Best of all, I didn't spend very much.
This guy though was at the local thrift store for $14! He's 46 inches tall and vintage "Empire 1960's".
I've been watching how much he goes for on EBay for the last couple of days. And he sells for over $150 if he's in great shape. Unfortunately this guy is quite "distressed" though. He doesn't have any holes or cracks and his light works, so that's good!
He's going to live with my sister and "the one". They've recently developed a passion for vintage holiday decor. I believe that I'll be able to help them out with this! haha
This is the little guy that I'm going to keep. He seems older than my other blow molds, no markings though. Does anyone have him? He was $5 at the antique sale! Do you see the white dresser in the background? It was my great grandparent's. It's spoon carved and original white chippy paint, but there is a problem!
All of the drawers are jammed really bad. I talked to a local furniture restoration place and he wanted $300.00 to re-align the drawers. No sure what to do with it now. My dad can't even get them to budge. Thoughts?
Vintage wrapping paper for $1 and mercury glass beads for $2 a bag! I grabbed those empty ornament boxes to use to make little shadow boxes.
Did you all see the latest cover of "Romantic Homes" magazine? It features a drop dead gorgeous wreath by "Georgia Peachez" ! I've always wanted to make a similar wreath but couldn't bring myself to dip into my vintage ornament stash. Well I bought these ornaments just for the purpose of the wreath, and made sure I didn't spend over $2 per ornament. I'll post my result soon!
This old box is filled with cookie cutters, but I really bought it for the box! I love to store my glass beads and cards in them. The Santa will make it into my wreath, and I couldn't pass up the vintage white tree and pink house!
Haa! This pic looks like it doesn't belong in this post. But I also grabbed these fall and Halloween things at the antique sale for really cheap! And I can't do a post without a piece of PYREX you know! :) Oh wait!!!....
My dear friend Jill of "A Little Bit of Everything" has gone and done it again!
She gifted me with this little Butterprint bowl, and it couldn't be cuter! And look at the card she included.
Thank you Jill, I am so lucky to have your friendship! :)
OK Friends, I hope you enjoyed my recent finds. I've been feeling great and only have ONE WEEK to go in my cast! I've been doing some crafting, so my next few posts will be about the things I've been making instead of BUYING! Must quit all the buying! Why is it sooo difficult? :)
