Decisions, decisions. Early yesterday morning it was spitting (as the English like to say) when I left the house for Warrenton. I had a wretched sore throat. I decided to have breakfast at Newman's and if it looked bad, turn around and go home. I ignored the little drizzle and pushed on and oh-boy, oh-boy, oh-boy, am I glad I did. The day was fantastic and I had a blast. Before noon the place was deserted and when I left at two, it was packed. I found lots of smalls for very cheap prices. Wanna see?
It was such a fabulous day in the fields, I picked out little bits here and there and for really good prices. I quit when I was tired and stopped at Nothing Ordinary in Brenham to get the little booklet and several other things above. Had a wonderful visit with the ladies there. So glad I took the chance, with the rain and had such a great second trip. I kept thinking this week, I want to go to Brimfield (in Mass) and then I realized, WHAT THE HELL, you have good stuff right in your own backyard - go! So, I did. The end.
|Doesn't this wooden truck ($8) scream PAINT ME, put some cool graphics on me? |
I adore that little booklet, baby shoe $2, doll heads $2
|The zinc can is the sweetest shade of pink, creme puff will be a good|
doll body. Fell for the sugar bowl ($4) and had a brilliant conversation
with a long haired hippie about NOLA food. The McCoy girl/boy were $11.
|Debe, I found the cylinders! Bought the whole box.|
|Need to decorate these wooden shoes, like West End Salvage did...|
|I know he is broken in two places but |
I fell in love with him. And he was $1.
He's like 8" tall.
|My attempt at Subway Art.|
I made this for my brother and will get it printed poster size.
Its the name of every street he's lived on on top of an
1878 map of New Orleans.
