Bargains

10.08.2011

Hope everyone's Saturday has been a good one. I have had the best day. Scott's Antique Market is this weekend in Atlanta and I decided it was time to go back. I had a blogging friend go with me, too. Babs of Upstairs Downstairs just lives down the road from me so I asked her if she would like to go and she did. We had the best time and we could not have asked for better weather. Here are some pictures of the loot that came home with me today. All these were really great buys.

 I just got home and dumped everything on my kitchen table and took some pictures. I have been wanting one of these toolboxes forever, but refused to pay a bunch for one. This one has the best patina and was the size I wanted. It was $38 and I bought it for $28.

I got the old leather books for $5 a piece. You know I love old books.

When I saw these pillow covers I gasped. I just knew they were going to be pricey, but they were way less than I thought they would be. You can guess what room they will be going in.

Love this just sitting on a stack of books. $10 for this one. Another one I saw inside without the mouth piece was $55. I think I got the better deal.

When I saw the handle on this magnifying glass it had to come home with me. I don't know why I love magnifying glasses.

This cute squirrel was $26 and I got it for $12.


So all in all a very good day.
Now I get to go play house with my stuff.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  9. Totally jealous I wasn't there to join in the fun. My mouth dropped open when I saw the pillow covers. Unbelievable. I had no idea you and Babs were so close. It would be so nice to hang out with someone who "got it" about bloggers. Happy Sunday...enjoy your loot.

  10. I really love all your new finds. I see you got a bull horn similar to mine. That certainly was a good price. Glad you were able to go today and find things you've been wanting.
