Treasure Hunting: Follow-up

If you recall, in Friday’s post, I mentioned that my friend, Donna, and I were planning a busy Saturday morning.

We met at the antique shop when they opened and were their second and third customers. I had mentioned in Friday’s post that the antique shop sent out an email last week, and that there was a little item in the email that caught my eye.  The shop is only open one Saturday each month, so I knew if we got there early, it should still be there. And it was.

A sweet little child’s vintage sand shovel. Another “find” for the beach house.

But I also found this:

An old enamel coffeepot. (The little stool was a treasure found quite some time ago.)  The coffeepot will be perfect, filled with some of “that old moss“.

a sunny and warm Saturday morning spent with a friend, a few little found treasures for each of us and a giggle-filled lunch: fun times!

  11. It was a great day! Found a vintage milk bottle carrier, a P Buckley Moss in perfect condition and a wonderful odd peice of Tupperware-perfect for storage. But best of all (besides petting that sweet old “Greeter Horse” in Surry at Markets in the Park) is time spent with my lovely friend Dianna! I look forward to our next trip.

    It is such fun when treasures from the past are found and treasured anew. One of our local thrift stores had a spring sale this weekend and I also found treasures, although not as old.

  24. Great finds. I think that little shovel is super cute.
