Did I have a fun couple of days or not? I want you to know that I had to take two photos to get the majority of my "goodies" to share with you.
Now keep in mind, this does not include my trip to Ross, TJMaxx and JoAnns.
I decided to take a couple of days off and go to Missouri to visit my dear friend Sabra. So, I met her and we had lunch at this neat little tea room in Monett, MO. Wonderful lunch!! We sat and talked for a couple of hours and then hit a little antique mall and I found quite a few things.
So, after we both left Monett, I drove back to Neosha, MO to my sisters. We had dinner at a fantastic Oriental Buffet in Neosha. I don't do Chinese food, but I absolutely love this food. It's a buffet and all the chicken is white breast meat and oh my gosh - is it good!!
Then, my sister Jean and I got up Saturday morning and went shopping and shopping and shopping. We hit several antique malls in Joplin, had a great Mexican lunch at Maria's and shopped till we literally dropped.
You probably think all we do is eat and you're pretty close to right. Shop and eat. Repeat. Repeat.
I wanted you to see all the precious stuff I found. Vintage pieces of china, egg cups, crystal, cups, baby's silver comb and brush, salt and pepper shakers, buttons, lace, rolling pins........
My husband thinks I have an addiction to salt and pepper shakers - wonder what would ever make him think that of me?
Crochet pieces, more buttons, more lace, more salt and pepper shakers. The old vintage quilt in the background I bought for $15.00! I was wanting one for a background and this one is torn along one of the edges, so, it was perfect for what I wanted.
Now, to my three best buys of the weekend:
A new, "old" highchair for Laynee for my house! Isn't it unusual. It's in perfect condition. I have never seen one made like this.
Five of these in my Rose Point china. I don't know what they actually are. They are too large for egg cups - unless you had really big chickens! Do you know what they are called? I found 6 of these.
Be still my heart!! Two new pieces of McCoy!!
So, alot of this will be going on one or the other of my Etsy shops, so if you see something you have to have, let me know and I'll alert you when I list it. (The highchair, Rose Point and McCoy don't go!!)
Enjoy all of my treasures.
Till next time, Judy
