There's this game we play. Going into shops, and not so secretly wanting to find that THING. You know, the one that we are in no way going to leave the premises WITHOUT! Most of the fun is in not knowing what that thing is going to be. Kinda crazy huh!
I didn't buy a thing you see here (or anything else). But these were all temptations. (The vintage towels, above, priced at fifteen dollars were actually twenty percent off that price for a set of FIVE in perfect condition.)
The rules are different for home court, versus away games. If I have to carry it on a plane it has to be, a) light and easy to pack, b) something I couldn't likely find at home, c) a crazy price, or d) all three. (I LOVE photos from this era. And I LOVE that one empty chair.)
I was asked after my last post about taking pictures in Ikea. In a mega setting, I click away with my camera keeping in mind that "it's easier to be forgiven than to get permission." You'd never be noticed in Ikea anyway. But if someone stops you, you've probably already got a few shots.
As a shopkeeper I'm often asked if taking pictures is okay and I always say yes. If I get a vibe in a small shop that I should ask, I do. (Is this tureen not darling??)
I'm not sure what this bag is. For post? But I wanted it.
These grain sacks were a great price. I should have taken them. Oops!
Old landscape photos. Want.
Farm picture. (You have no idea how much unhung art I have already.)
Thank goodness these railway towels were in a showcase and I couldn't be bothered!
I ALWAYS look for ironstone. I thought I might find a piece of brown transferware, but not a thing turned up.
Original painting of an old mission. Love.
If I had found this mirror at home, I would have lost my head. Away game rules. . . .
Ouch! A crazy low price. Gorgeous. gorgeous!
(Belleek cachepot. Never seen one before at any price.)
Well, I came away unscathed and without regret (well almost)!
Hope you're having fun and games too!
Ciao! for now!
