I always have something specific in mind when I'm on the hunt. This week it was white crochet thread. I recently had a delightful shop visitor who wanted the balls of thread I was using in a display. I said okay, and she asked how much. A dollar each? I replied. That's not enough, she said. Okay, two? Deal.
Turns out she was right. Unless you buy new, there are not only not many to be found here, but two bucks each! I was only able to turn up these two.
My latest jaunt also turned up another must have doily. You got a peek of it last post. Not crochet, but tatting. Not just the trim, the whole potato! I like its organic form rather than all pressed and tidy. It almost looks like it grew this way.
Lots of glass wanted to have a life with me this time too. I adore the shape and look of old glass. Too bad it's so hard to capture in a photo. But easy to buy at one dollar.
Here's a little antique charmer with a story. Don't you wish we knew what it was?
I wish I could tell you I got a deal on the pink carnival glass. I only hesitated a moment, and then paid the going price. I almost felt like Rachel was in the room urging me on. Someone was going to get it. May as well be me! After all, I did miss Round Top!
The darling little cake stand was a small bargain with loads of character. A mixed heart and pineapple design. Symbols for hospitality and love fused together.
A crisp linen baby suit of white, next to a pink seersucker pinny.
A snowy white antique petticoat with eyelet lace. Do people ever stare at YOU at the fleamarket while you're crying? How rude! (kidding here)
An antique woven silk piano shawl. Eight dollars. Why we do it.
But who needs a reason?
Thanks for coming along!
Ciao! for now!
