I have noticed that my blog posts are becoming farther and farther apart. I strive to post at least twice a week but lately it's been more like once! It's not for lack of junk (thank goodness), or even lack of time. It's that damn Instagram! It's just so easy to snap a quick picture and post it for the IG world to see. As a result, our poor little blog is being neglected. I didn't even take pictures to share my Halloween decorations! Oh well, if you want to see those, head to (where else?), Instagram.
Last weekend I flew solo up to Portland for a huge show at the Expo. Maddie decided to go deer hunting with her dad. No thank you. I prefer junk hunting. I missed my girl but the amount of awesomeness I found more than made up for my lonliness.
You know it's going to be a good show when your first purchase of the day is the larger bowl in the Pyrex Eyes set for seven bucks!
This Hazel Atlas juice carafe has been on my wish list for as long as I can remember. It was even on my mind as I was driving up to Portland! I can't believe I finally have it! The matching juice glass was at the very next booth.
I have become obsessed with the pastel Tupperware tumblers. They are so durable and pretty! The flamingo and chick glasses I got at separate booths. The blue star Swanky Swig was one I didn't have!
The Glasbake handled bowls have really grown on me. My family uses them all the time so I was happy to add two more to the stack. When I asked the sweet little old lady at the booth with the Fire King Jadeite refrigerator dish how much it was, she said "Oh, I have to ask at least five dollars for that." Love it! The Hazel Atlas striped bowl will join it's red friends on my red Cosco cart and the candle holders will go in a jar with the rest of my collection.
The Gurley Thanksgiving candles will join the rest of their friends when I put out my Thanksgiving decorations later on today.
There was so much vintage Christmas at this show! So so so so much!!! I am so proud of myself for only allowing these three things to come home with me.
But when it came to vintage Halloween, all that restraint flew right out the window!
Rounding out my show purchases was all the cuteness! The Bambi will join Maddie's collection. I've been pretty lucky finding the chalkware fish lately. Now I just need to find a good spot for all of them. The flamingo decals are some I had never seen before and didn't already have in my collection. And the Lefton bluebird wall pockets? Another thing on my wish list at a price I couldn't walk away from.
Such a fun show but the treasure hunting didn't end there! I hit a couple of antique malls too. More on what I found there next time!
