Antique/Flea Market Finds


I got a late start today, I had wanted to get up early and hit the yard sales and flea markets, and of course a few of the antique stores in my area. I do have to say that we have a lot of antique stores around here, but a lot o them are very expensive to say the least! There is one antique store that is real close to my house, but it isn't opened daily and you have to sort of hit and miss on getting in there. Well today it was a hit! I found an awesome crock, a wooden bowl, and a bobbin all for $20.00. The crock doesn't have any markings but I love it and the price was right. The bowl has a train iniside and is stamped CO 5 Railway NH. The flea market find was a butter churn.. I know it's not an old one but it will look great once I paint it and distress it. I got jug type crock there too and a wooden rocking horse.I almost forgot that I found two lanterns too still in the package, that I am going to prim up and have my hubby wire for electric candles. All and all I'm happy with my new goodies.
