I bought a tin Easter basket, and it was in great condition, and a great price! I posted a picture below. I really love the colors in it, too. My parents and aunt and uncle said it was a good price, too, and they are experts in this arena, ha.
I didn't ask the seller if they'd take a lower price, because it seemed like a great price, but I will do it in the future, because after I told my parents about it, they said that you should ALWAYS ask if they'll take less, no matter the item. It feels strange to me to "haggle", but I'll have to get used to that! I did do that when I bought my antique bar cart at an antique mall, and it worked.
After the toy show, Bob and I went out to lunch nearby, and then went to a mall to checked out the Christmas ornaments at Boscov's (a department store), and I picked up a cupcake ornament there. We then went to a nearby town where I picked up a macaron ornament at a shop. We'll be going to a strictly Christmas antique show the first Saturday in December, about forty minutes from us. I'm excited to go to a strictly Christmas show, and think I'll find a lot there. I haven't been to this show before.
I can't wait to have a house and get to display my growing collections year round! That's the most exciting part for me of having a house, ha! I want to display them in hutches, tables, on shelves and a mantel.
My outfit was a huge hit at the antique show! Almost everyone there was quite a big older than us, I'd say mainly in their 40's to 70's. A few of the vendors complimented me, and asked me about my outfit, and thought my dress was actual vintage, and not repro. It's always cool to introduce people to the world of vintage repro, since it seems like hardly anyone in the area I live in dresses that way.
