Valentine Yummies From Last Weekend's Antiquing
Last weekend, which seems like a very long time ago now, mom and I went to a new antique show/flea market (well, new for us and new territory) and two antique malls in Evansville, IN. It was incredible! Just like shows of the past! Two indoor buildings, several outdoor barns and many vendors just set up outside. I had arranged to meet up with a dealer who had a whole box of goodies for me to sort through and boy was that fun! She and I have the exact same taste! She's got two three car garages full of boxes of stuff she has bought over the years as a dealer! Anyway, she was super fun and I spent an hour and a half in her booth alone! And we plan to meet again! Found lots of goodies for my Etsy shop!
I think one of our biggest finds and best deals were the vintage valentines! I saw a whole plastic tub of them on the way to get something to eat and we ended up buying them all for a price! The ones pictured are just the ones I kept. Mom ended up with a huge pile and I still have another huge pile to sell! There were at least 250-300 valentines and a few greeting cards too!
I also found this sweet Suzy Homemaker Blender in it's original box and just had to have it for my kitchen! I like that it has a cellophane window and you can see it inside the package! Last Monday morning before Tim fell, I spent an hour in the kitchen revamping the top of my cabinets so I could squeeze it in (and dust). It looks really cute!
