A sunny but chilly day today for one of my favorite antique shows, thankfully it was indoors. We got there early, paid our admission and took off shopping. My first purchase was, yes you guessed it "drawers"
I love drawers, and these apothecary drawers are just perfect for storage in the studio. They are 6 inches deep and 10 inches across.
The next booth had the most awesome Mexican Silver bracelet
I bought it, and then had a lady follow me around and approach me in another booth to see if I wanted to sell it. I told her I was keeping it and then she approached me again and offered me even more to sell it. Needless to say it came home with me.
Yes I did by some things for resale. I got a Czechoslovakian bracelet, a very old mother of pearl brooch with a barrel clasp, and a tin crown pin.
A vintage "chicken"candy container, these were filled with jelly beans and had a cardboard bottom.
and finally.......I fell in "LOVE" with the most awesome thing. After I bought this I quit shopping. I had seen other things I was interested in and thought I might go back and revisit them, but after buying this I was done.
A super cool vintage sewing caddy! I am keeping this, and now I will be searching for cool sewing stuff to put in this caddy. It was on the pricey side, but when I saw it I just knew it was meant for me. It just really spoke to me. I love wood things and the patina on this is just awesome! Do you all remember my german sewing scissors from last summer?
Won't they look great in this caddy? I'm on the hunt now for cool threads and maybe and awesome german silver thimble or two.
We finished the day at Walldorff's Brewpub and Bistro with a "Beesting Honey Rye Ale" and lunch.
