3 days and counting to what, you may ask?
FARM CHICKS! This will be the first time that I have attended this show and I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Sister won't be able to make it this year so I enlisted my BFF Rachel to go with me. When I texted her about it a couple of months ago, she said yes before she even knew what it was! She saw the words "Farm Chicks" and knew it had to be something fun so she was in.
With it being a holiday last weekend, Maddie & I didn't go to too many sales but we did manage to find some stuff that made our early, rainy morning worth it.
Our first stop was an annual church sale that I had some Pyrex luck at last year. Well, no Pyrex this year but I did find Maddie these cute little Made in Japan furry skunk figurines for her collection.
I also found some little plastic deer for crafting
Along with some bottle brush trees & wreaths
A box of red and blue ornaments for the 4th of July wreath I plan on making. Holy moly! I'd better get a move on. Sister, maybe this could be our project when you are here for my birthday?
I also found this nice, bright tablecloth with surprisingly no stains. I love this particular church sale. The prices are very good and they don't have a specific "Antique" section like some other church sales I've attended. I got all of this great stuff for $3.50! I'd say I scored pretty well.
I also got pretty lucky at the thrifts this week. I'll share the rest later but for now I couldn't wait to show you the Americana Blue 401 and old pie bird I found at SVDP. I cackled to myself when I saw this pie bird on the shelf because this is the same SVDP that thinks everything that is vintage should be put in a display case and marked up a thousand percent. Guess their "vintage expert" was off that day because I found this bird in the figurine aisle for $2.
But my real excitement came from the Pyrex bowl. Want to know why?
Because it completed my Americana Blue set & just in time for the patriotic holiday season! It's been a while since I've shared over at The Pyrex Collective 2 so I will be heading over there next with the full story.
I hope you all had a lovely holiday weekend. What should have been a long, quiet weekend for me turned into playing house mom to 6 teenage boys. Oh well, someday they will all grow up and I will miss these times, right?
