Good Shopping

Every now and then, I go out junquing with a list of specific items I need to find. It is very rare that I find all of those items on the list.

Last week I went out with a list and low and behold, I found everything I was after.

My list consisted of...
*a birthday gift (the book)
*4 red and white milk caps (3 out of 4 isn't bad. At least the fourth has red on it and isn't green or orange.)
*white posies

Then the shopping got better, because I found a few extra pretties too.

*Northeast Africa plant life recognition cards
*a lovely pearl and rhinestone brooch
*light pink velvet ivy leaves

And it was all done in a very timely manner. Here's to a good day of shopping!

Lucky You! Are you going to go to Antique Alley in Cleburne this weekend? The mud may be knee deep. But, there is like 15 miles of Antiquing & Garage Sales on Hwy. 4 In the spring a friend & I went (they had terrible rain then too) & found some good stuff.

Wow, you really did get lucky. I don't think that I have ever been able to go out looking through vintage items and come up with exactly what I had in mind or what was on my list. Good shopping there!! Love the brooch.

Definitely fantastic finds. Especially the book!! Also, loved the way you packaged it up.
I do the same thing, make a list of what I'm looking for. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It really worked for you this time.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
Cari B.
