My booty as I called it was pretty good the other day.
Not shiny gold like a pirates booty
and not given away or stolen like
the term suggests.
Somethings were inexpensive and some..... well,
compared to some of the acquisitions of bloggers out there.
Boy some of you out there really get some great deals.
This is the bulk of what I acquired.
Not bad for a few hours.
I have to tell you a quick story.
Our first stop was a booth where I saw a wire basket.
I politely asked him how much.
He said $35. So without saying anything or making any faces
( I swear )
proceeded to put it back down.
He then said 30, then 25.
I still didn't like it that much. It was rather ordinary
and really thought it wasn't worth more then 15 but I wasn't going to even mention
what I thought it was worth.
He then yelled out to the crowd
and pointed to me!!!
Everyone of course turned to look at him....
None of which were in his booth btw.
I never looked around to see if they were
looking at me or at him.
I hoped that he embarrassed himself in their eyes.
All I kept thinking was
Wow what a way to start the day.
Later when we were going by him Deanna heard him
doing it to someone else.
I wonder what kind of day HE had?
The good thing is that the shopping experience improved
immensely for the rest of the day.
I stuck to my usual colors of white and neutral tones.
A few simple tins
I don't really know why I liked these. They were mixed in with a pile of metal handles.
Some kind of marble piece that I can only think was from a fancy lamp or
various numbers....sorry Laura no 2's in the pile...I really looked.
These I just fell in love with. I wished she had more I would
have bought all she had.
Of course now a days this kind of bead work is often done in India.
Nice but not like these.
Nice but not like these.
I could have swearn that I had 5 of these.
Oh well, it'll show up someday...
These oversized faucet handles I bought after seeing the
ones Debra showed me she bought.
She wanted to use them as candle holders...
That Debra's so clever!
I hadn't bought an alabaster lamp in a long time.
This ones pretty small.
And metal wall candle holder
Crystals sold by the foot and also bought a small bolt of brown
toile fabric along with some gauzy white and tan bolt too.
New members of my ever expanding family.
George keeps telling me to stop buying these but
someone has to love and cherish them.
I can pretend that this baby girl might have worn these shoes
though they're not that old.
Ideal Baby Shoes from Danvers Mass.
Danvers is right outside Salem Mass.
where we stayed a couple of time while visiting at Halloween time.
Always love seeing the "real witches" walking the streets.
Look at the size of that bouquet.
Someone next to me commented that she looked
just like their mothers wedding portrait.
I wondered if the shorter length was popular then?
My real score was this mesh bag!!!
Love Love Love it!
I now have 3.
Nothing fancy just a bait bucket.
Too bad I can't make a bag out of it
This gentleman looked like he'd make a fine fishermen.
Not in that fine suit though.
Nigella checking out the new members of the family.
She can sniff out the cat lovers.
She gave her approval,
that's good don't want any trouble!
