When I do get to go antique hunting, I try to stick to a $20 budget these days.
I guess in a way I am surprised at what I do find!
I am behind on showing you my finds.
A couple of weeks ago I had a day off and ran to a couple of resale shops.
Here are my finds for $20.
Found these Pyrex Spring Blossom refrigerator dishes, marked at $3.99 a piece.
They match my bowls I got as a wedding present years ago.
Did not think I should pass them up since they match!
They were in great shape and I will use them.
No chips in the lids, no scratches on the containers
I have seen many of you find these mugs, when I found this one for $1.99
I figured it deserved a home at 1515.
Yes, another little pitcher to add to my collection. I think it will stay at 1515.
I loved the lilies on the front, the flowers are gorgeous and this little gem
I can never pass them up if they are marked under $5
And then I found this tin for $1.99
It look familiar too
Now I know why...........
Matches the one I have in the utility room at 1515! It was my Grandmothers and
it holds the chalk for the chalkboard door.
So I did not feel to guilty when I passed over a $20 bill for all these things.
And they all will be used!
And one more purchase.
When we went to the Patterson Springs Bed and Breakfast for
our Charleston Riot meeting.
Mr. loves honey and the B&B owner has a beehive at her home.
I bought it because their farm, sits directly next to my ancestors land.
They arrived in 1830, and there is a story in the County History about
my Great Great Grandfather trying to by a beehive off of his
Could these bee........the same hive?
probably not but, it made it more intriguing to buy!
