After our time at the antique show in Naugatuck we stopped
back at Paula's house so we could look over all that we
Just so we could eeww and ahhh over everything. How come guys don't do that???
Maybe they do......but I'm sure a bunch of old keys wouldn't do it for them:))
and certainly not lace!!! Their loss!!!! Right?
Paula picked these up for a great price if I remember right....from a guy!!!
He probably thought......why would anyone want old keys???
or a little metal chicken???
This Paula was told was a corkscrew but it seemed too small for that???
Maybe one of you knows.
She was wearing it like a ring.......
I stayed far enough away.... haha
In one of the booths she had picked up some window blind hangers.
When I got to another booth right
next door the lady was selling a small box full of them along with other
crocheted items so I told Paula about them.
She of course bought the box.
She used some of them on presents she gave on Valentines Day
at our luncheon at Evi's we all attended.
I wish I crocheted more then circles!!!
I love this little crocheted basket!
A little something from Jones Drug store in Bridgeport,Ct.
2 tablets taken every 4 hrs until pain goes away....etc....etc.
Being a pharmacist Paula always looks for these kinds of boxes.
So much cuter taking pills from this kind of container
then what they give you now.
I'm sure back then they never gave it any thought.
The book I was telling you about that I bought was the
Youth's Companion. The graphics were so intriguing.
Paula bought the same book but just a little smaller.
What you see in the first few pictures above.
The nice man that sold us the book was telling us that they would print them
on a regular basis they would then have them bound
together to make a book. It has over 800 pages.
He was telling us while he was waiting for the show to open he read
some of the stories. He found it fun
to imagine the kids reading them back then in the 1800's.
No TV or internet or video games in those days.
We didn't dare tell him we wanted the book to tear the
pages out. We thought better of it after that.
After I read some of the stories....
but not all 800+ pages!!
Copies might be good too:))))
This thermometer in the shape of a key
was interesting though I think it long ago
Newport RI is marked on the top.
I have relatives there in one of those
castles along the bluffs:)
HaHa I wish!!!!!!
I have more buttons then I know
what to do with, but I had to have these. They had just the
right amount to grunge to them.
The beautiful etched bottles I bought from
Debra from Capers of the Vintage Vixens.
The galvanized metal
milk carrier was sweet too and I got asked about it throughout the show.
I think he kind of regretted selling it to me at the price he told me....
or at least his wife did.
This is the bag I bought from Debra too. This picture doesn't show the detail.
But this one does!!!! I love it!
Don't forget to see our hostess Kathleen
at Faded Charm and visit the other participants of WW.
I've missed doing White Wednesday the last couple of weeks.
Glad to have the opportunity to do one more!!!...
thank you for stopping by.
