Unfortunately, I couldn't help but be a little disappointed with the mixture of booths on the main street. It's a flea market in addition to an antique show, but I really don't like having to walk by booths of sunglasses, t-shirts, hats, plastic food storage, etc., just to get to one of the too few antique booths. OK, no more complaining. I did get some fun stuff, but I really had to work for it.
This store wasn't open when I walked by, but it was interesting to look at the old bike parts through the window.
Do you think Mike and Frank (American Pickers) would be drooling over this?
I love the green paint on this rusty old Nemco garbage can, and one can never have too much silver.
This avocado green sewing basket was in perfect condition and a real bargain. It was even a better bargain when I opened it and discovered it came with bunches of goodies. I see more repurposed jewelry here.
I love this page from a 1950 house accounts ledger.
xxx Valley Brook Drive, Falls Church, Va.
Get a load of that house payment and balance!!! Another page lists the taxes....1950 yearly taxes were $106.86 and in 1959 they jumped way up to $318.00. Oooooh. I know, that was a lot of money back then.
I also bought some really cool 28" long Borden's wire milk baskets, a huge heavy wire stocking form, a tin type photo, and a few more smaller wire baskets. I forgot to get them out of the back of my truck when I took these pictures.
I was a little frustrated with not being able to find a good bling pile until I spotted this when I was leaving.....
I probably spent 30 minutes sifting through it all, and this is what I ended up with....
Now I need to get busy repurposing.
