A cast iron urn or vase, a yellow pig, and an old pharmacy bottle. The vase will be great at Halloween with a pumpkin on top (I may plant some flowers in the meantime even though I have a black thumb) the bottle is for my son who is heading off to college this fall and wants to be a pharmacist, and the pig will go to my growing collection
I'm up to eight. I know the fat one in the back is a little different but he's plastic and he's a bank so in my made up just now rules, he counts! Am I anywhere close to you Laurie?
My next stop was a downtown Antique store. Cool stuff but CRAZY high prices so didn't buy a thing. Seriously, some people do NOT want to really sell their crap!
On my way back uptown I hit a Goodwill. Don't go to this particular GW a lot because it's sorta far from my house, but glad I stopped cuz I found my second fav find of the day...
Large orange letters on one side,
Dreamy illustrations on the other side. V is for Valentine's Day!
E is for Easter!!
By now I was on a pretty good junk drunk so I couldn't quit yet, am I right? I decided to pick up my mom and sis and shop some more. On the way there I stopped at a garage sale. Got a handmade old doll bed (which is still currently in my car, too lazy to go get it) and a bunch of stuff for ebay for cheap and some Pyrex.
I know this may be hard to believe but I don't collect Pyrex. I used to sell it in my booth but now that I don't have a booth I usually don't buy it. But for $5 I figured maybe I could sell it online. Pretty pattern though. After picking up my mom and sister we headed for yet another small town with a cute downtown and lots of good stores. There seems to be no end to these small towns around Kansas City. Anyway, on to the goodies. Remember how I said the flash cards were my second fav find of the day. Well here is my first favorite find...
It is a HUGE vintage German paper mâché Easter egg. Like 16" huge. Like bigger than two of my heads huge. Now you may be thinking that this is a pretty good score, and you would be right. But you know what would make it even better? 8 smaller eggs nesting inside!!!!
Here is the big one lounging on my couch so you can see how big this sucker really is!
