Well......I'm a bit disappointed that the carpenters aren't showing up this weekend, but they said they'll be here on Monday. I'm to the point that I'll believe them when I see them. I've been a bit stressed lately with the kitchen reno so I had to escape on Friday to the monthly antiques sale at the Lakewood 400 in Cumming, Ga. which is about 30 to 45 minutes from me depending on traffic.
My favorite booth is this one by Ida Reider of Simply Southern filled with beautiful antiques and other finds and they are always displayed beautifully. This is the same booth I purchased my mirror over the fireplace from a few months ago. She really has great prices.
I love how she sets her beautiful wares up layered and stacked, but easy to view.
Look at that bed!
I have no more room for chairs and this pair with great details was only $695.
Great pair of very tall shutters and I didn't even notice the lanterns until I was editing this photo.
Another great mirror and the cutest pine chest.
Just past her booth was a Christmas wonderland. This man had set his booth up beautifully and everyone was stopping and shopping.
Here is some more of what I saw.
I really want one of these old rocking horse toys. This one is from the 1800's and is a beauty, and the $950 price tag is actually quite reasonable for one this large and old, but more than I have right now.
This was a super cool antique child's sled that I considered buying.
And I seriously considered this one. They would make great Christmas props, but my creative juices are just stumped right now I think because of the kitchen and the stress.
So you won't believe this, but I left this time empty handed! Yep, even Mr. Savvy checked my forehead to see if I was sick when I told him I didn't buy a thing. 😲
Maybe I'll go back next month since they are showing earlier. They will be open the first weekend in December instead of the third......hmmm, maybe my juices will be flowing again.
Happy hunting and happy Sunday!
