So Hanna mentioned that I bought a lot more than she did. Well, she was right. I tend to have several more collections than she does and a lot more room to display them so whenever we go on one of our adventures, the majority of what is in the car is mine. She is really thoughtful in her purchases, thinking about where she will put it, does she really need it, will she ever use it, etc. I am more of the buy now, worry about the rest later.
This is why she is done showing her finds and I still have three more posts to go!
Today I am super excited to share with you part 1 of what I found at the Alameda Points Antique Faire. The whole reason we went on this crazy adventure! I bought a lot so I have to break it down into two posts. Otherwise I'm afraid I'll lose you guys!
I have a major problem leaving tins behind. The graphics, the colors, and just the overall usefulness of them draw me in every single time.
There was a booth full of all kinds of vintage linens. Tablecloths, pillowcases, sheets, you name it. Unfortunately, a single tablecloth was $25.00. So after I wiped away my tears, I made it my mission to find tablecloths in my price range. I succeeded!!
I adore the colors of this Camp Jug. It matches my vintage patio furniture perfectly!
I collect vintage scotch tape holders but have never seen the tin before. I also am determined to make a lamp out of a thermos like Pam over at House of Hawthornes did. So I picked this one up with that in mind.
Crossed another cookbook off of my list. The old tin is outside on my bar cart with all the other pretty but too worn for inside tins. And the Skippy jar makes 3 vintage peanut butter jars for me so I guess I have another collection!
Not sure of what I am going to do with these but they were aqua, pink, and cute. Enough said.
Anybody know the maker of this refrigerator dish? I would love to see what the rest of the set looks like!
I shared this vintage souvenir "Ass Scratcher" on IG yesterday. Definitely one of my quirkier finds.
See?! I'm not making the name up!
Are you still there? I know this was a long post and even I didn't realize how much I actually brought home until I started writing it.
Part 2 of the Alameda finds next time!
Linking up with Melissa's Antiques for Thrifty Things Friday, Jann Olson for SYC Thursday, Sir Thrift-A-Lot for Thriftasaurus, How Sweet The Sound for Pink Saturday, and The Cottage Market for Junkin' Joe.
