Vacation Finds



One afternoon during our vacation, Mike & I managed to escape (well, Morgan too) and check out a local antique shop. That particular one was called Dusty Treasures in Axton, VA, but we also ended up stopping at several more before we made it back to Florida. Here's what we found!




I picked up a couple of these. I think I'm going to put these in a frame together along with one I found awhile back.




A couple of years ago, I picked up a little Kromex grease pot for $.05 at the thrift store. Lucky me, Mike found a small set. I knew I had to have it!




This was something he picked out, some old ice tongs.



These crocks were everywhere. I would love to have one of the ones with a crown on it, but that will have to be another trip.



I really dont ever look at Pyrex at the antique shops, other than to admire them or say "hey, I have that one!" I then look at the price and think, "wow, that's insane". But I found this little piece on a $1.00 table.



A couple of old spools.



And this great, HUGE bottle.




Another one of Mikes' finds. And old bell.



And a scale.




I grabbed this feed sack and plan to make a pillow or two with it.





A couple more of Mikes' treasures, a scithe and a saw.



We have been looking for a milk can for awhile now. I either cant find them, or they're over prices. We saw these in Dusty Treasures but didnt really plan on getting them. I was actually looking at the crocks, and Mike said something to the man about them. He said he'd give them to us for $15 for the both of them. Yep, $7.50 a piece. SOLD!





And last but not least, another old school desk. The color doesnt show well in this picture, but that paint is the prettiest shade of blue. This is now an end table in our living room. Pictures to come later!



It was nice to get out and look without the kids, at least for one store. We had all three of them for the rest!
I'm linking up to Today's Thrifty Treasures over at Southern Hospitality and Thrift Share Monday at Apron Thrift Girl!
