Since I have to work tomorrow, my usual day off, I got today off instead. What awesome weather we had!!! It was fun to treasure hunt together again-it's been a month since we've gone anywhere together. We're going on another adventure on Saturday when we go to the Michigan Depression Glass Show.
We visited the Maumee Antique Mall and Great Finds Antiques (also in Maumee) today. Here are some pics of what I saw today...
This was super huge-about 2 feet tall!
Too expensive for me...but oh, how I drooled over it!
What is it? I got distracted and didn't ever get over to read the sign-LOL
What a great idea for a cutter quilt!!
My mom had a few of these when I was growing up.
That blue guy is pretty creepy
LOOK at this lunch box!!! How cute!?!? Is it $90 cute though??
This is a kitschy napkin holder that Auntie bought...someone put a lot of work into it!
For lunch we went to Five Guys---YUM!!!!
Back to Michigan!!
After I dropped Auntie off at her car, I saw a garage sale sign pointing to a house that used to belong to a great aunt on my mom's side of the family. I went to a sale there a few years back, but thought they'd sold the house when she went into assisted living after breaking her hip. I was very pleasantly surprised to see all kinds of vintage stuff in the driveway as I walked up. Even more surprised to see her daughters running the sale!
I picked up the picnic tin set-in the original box (just like the one I saw in Maumee), the thermos, some vintage pillowcases, a little plastic bowl, a plate to plant in my flowerbed, a beer box, and a couple of hot pads. The other things are things I picked up at the two antique malls. The butterfly quilt came from online-less than $15 for some seriously long hours of work!
It's kind of silly to buy an empty box...but the beer box reminds me of my childhood. When I was a kid, my mom got two beer boxes and painted them shiny black and then she painted my name in big pink letters on the top.It became my "suitcase" for camping. I packed my clothes in it and it fit in the camper quite nicely. I didn't even know it was a beer box until I was older. I just assumed everyone had that type of "suitcase". So, for $3, I got a piece of my childhood.
Look at this tablecloth!!! How FUN!!! It's already on my table!
I found this online earlier this week. I've been looking for years for this! It is a metal 12 days of christmas wreath that comes with mini plates depicting the 12 days of Christmas. I don't want the little plates, because I want to use the wreath for my Fiesta ornaments. I can't wait to hang it!!!
