Treasures

I was in heaven this weekend!!
I went to Renningers Twin Markets in Mt. Dora for the Antiques Extravaganza!
It was fantastic....row after row of vendors sell all types of things.
Some vintage. Some not so much!

I love Fiesta Ware...with the simple shapes and bright colors.
This vendor had miles and miles of vintage Fiesta Ware.
In my next house, I will replace all of my dishes with Fiesta Ware.

There were a lot of vendors selling pieces of architectural salvage.
I bought myself an old window frame that I am going to use as a sign for my booth at shows.
I'll be sure to post pics when I finish my project.


I loved the frame in this picture. And I thought the picture of the girl and cow was adorable. But it was priced at $75....out of my price range. I admit, I don't know anything about antiques. I just buy the things I like. But I am always afraid of overpaying. Maybe I will do some research before my next trip to Renningers.


There were also many people selling chicken houses. I thought they would make great storage bins but I was so afraid that no amount of scrubbing would totally remove the chicken poop. And I just couldn't bring myself to put something poopy in my car.
But now, as I look around my house, I see so many places where a chicken coop would be totally perfect. Isn't that always the way?

And finally.........
this pie safe was SUPER.FLY.FANTASTIC!

Love the photos!! My mom has my great grandmothers pie safe. Needs sanding to remove years of paint but in great shop. She stores her canned tomatoes there now.
Great for storage.
