I had the most wonderful Sunday possible! I got to go to my favorite antique mall and I got to go with my mom and my husband. It’s out in the middle of nowhere and it’s in an old school. Everything there is always priced very reasonably.The Mr. decided to go with us at the last minute and I was super thrilled that he expressed interest in such things. If I can turn him into a bona fide vintage-lover, it will totally justify me bringing home all manner of old and wonderful things.Here are some of our finds:
So yeah…we went a little overboard. We spent $65 in all, which is not bad considering all we got. Not pictured is a future Christmas present for my sister-in-law, a collectible Pepsi bottle the Mr. picked out, and a mod Japan ashtray that I already put in the shop. The lady ringing us up did a double take at the tag prices on the giraffes and the drinking glasses. They were priced very cheaply, even by that place’s standards!
After shopping our little hearts out, we stopped by my grandparents and visited. We left with armloads of home-grown sweet corn and tomatoes. Then we stopped by Ludy’s, the local bar and burger joint, for a late lunch. My mom and I split a pork tenderloin sandwich, onion rings and fried cauliflower. (obviously, we nixed going the healthy route.)
Once I got home, I took a nap. I haven’t taken a nap since I don’t know when. Then I organized my treaures, took a long evening walk with a friend, came home and made a coconut chocolate milkshake, read some, and went to bed. Seriously the best day I’ve had in a long time. Why can’t they all be like that?
