I have been gone for a couple of days! I am way behind on so many things but I had such a fun weekend!
I went traveling on Friday to various small towns in Tennessee antiquing and thrifting. I felt like I should be cast in one of those "pickers" show! I didn't have a truck or trailer with me so I passed on a lot of great finds. Since my garage is full of furniture to redo that is probably a good thing! Some of the places had such great stuff. I can't wait to go back.
It was nice to go into a place that had color!
There was a lot of neutral pieces too!
The funny thing is that even though it was a Friday there were so many shops closed. I didn't understand that one!
On Saturday I attended my first house auction. I soon found out that people pay way to much for items at an auction.
Look at the white cabinet on the right. I wanted it!!!!!!
and the trunks to the left.
I did however get some good buys.
Some of my great finds were:
a vintage scale
a coffee pot with glass top
a great piece of luggage
another piece of English Ironstone
This is just a few things! I had a trunk load. I will be busy pricing these for the store today.
I want to thank all of my friends who have paid me a visit at The Roost the last couple of months! I appreciate all your support and friendship.
I will announce the winner tomorrow so check back with me!
Do you ever notice that it is hard to get back into the swing of things when you return from a trip?
I need some more caffeine!
