I had a very successful anitquing today yesterday. Bob and I went to a Christmas antique show abotu twenty minutes away. We had never been to this show before, but my mom recommended it. We got there half an hour after it opened, and it was very crowded inside. So, that was annoying, but other than that, I was happy to see how much good stuff they had. I didn't see any blow molds though, but they had lots of bottle brush trees! I picked up three of them, and had my eye on others, too.
I try to do a full walk through at antique shows before buying anything, in case I find something I love more than what I first saw, or I find the same thing cheaper at the show. I do make exceptions, like if it's something I already know is a great deal, and may sell by the time I get back to the booth. My first purchase I did buy immediately, before walking around, and that was a $20 bottle brush tree. I knew it was a good price, plus the tree was different than most I've seen; it was silver with ball ornaments strung throughout the center of the tree. Later, I saw the same tree at another booth for $50! I ended up also getting one ceramic tree (only $20!), and a basket made of Christmas cards. I posted pictures below of my finds.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my new Lindy Bop dress. It has a San Fransisco border print on it. I went to SF when I was fourteen, but I'd love to go back sometime soon.
The colors in this print are so gorgeous; reminds me of sherbert. This is the best fitting LB dress I've ever tried on. Usually the waists are huge on me in LB dresses, but luckily this one is only a little big, and while it's tight on my chest, the buttons don't gape.
