You know the lyrics, girls just wanna have fun?
So here's what happens when me, my mom, and aunt get together and go to
the local antique mall. We play with dead animals and try on silly hats.
Silly and getting stares from passers-by? Yes. Having fun and not caring
what anyone thinks about us? Definitely.
We love this antique mall by my house. Even though it's only a mile up the
road from my house, I never go alone. It's much more fun when you have
your shopping buddies! So much cool stuff to look at.
Anyone for a 1960's orange sofa?
After 4+ hours of being on our feet shopping, we drove into a nearby town
to have lunch. I found this little cafe on Facebook, of all places.
Everything they serve is fresh and homemade. Their pies are to-die-for. I took
home a mini cherry pie for Brian and I to enjoy with a cup of tea.
How can you not love a place with not only unique, fresh, homemade food
but kitschy decor, too?
You have to check out a sample of their food offerings. For example, here's
today's specials: Frank's Karma Cafe Monday Specials
Back to shopping. What treasures did I find?
This gorgeous, made in Spain owl. I collect owls and was thrilled to
find such a beauty, especially for only $8. A woman at the checkout register
wanted to steal him from me. Sorry, he's mine!
The familiar blue Ball jar with silver lid. Perfect for holding my coffee beans.
The coffee sign on the wall is a recent Savers find.
Be still my heart...such beautiful little birdies (another collected item) AND one
of my favorite color combinations. This little gem is only about an inch across.
I love all the detail.
Another thing I collect is crackled glass pitchers. I only had two - the red one and
the orange one at the end. The blue one came home with me on Saturday.
The green and brown pitchers aren't crackled glass - just inexpensive thrift store finds.
What did you do this weekend? Any new antique or thrifting finds?
