Not me, thankfully, I had no storm woes or worries after the second Friday in a row of strong winds and heavy rain....but my sister was without electricity so ...... we went shopping. We went to a consignment store in Lancaster Co, PA. In planning the day, I read they would have someone onsite to buy old jewelry and who doesn't have a busted chains or two and one earring of a set? Cashed out with $170. But before that, I went shopping through the booths and what goodies did I get.
|Look at this frog.|
|Isn't it perfect for holding the cover photo of my current stitch from Prairie Moon?|
|Awesome oval white will red enamelware pan.|
|This is the second egg basket I have purchased. Not 100% sure what I am going to do with it. Got some ideas for rearranging a few pieces of furniture and accessories and this is sure to play a part.|
|Another piece of Lefton to add to my collection. My first piece was a piece of my mom's and every now and then I add a piece that I fancy. This one is just a nice shape and good sized cookie jar and the price was right.|
After I checked out, I cashed in my jewelry for $$$ and I saw this on the counter. Curiosity got the best of me and I asked the price.
$175 for the 10 piece set. I didn't want to spend that much but I had never seen that many matching pieces. After a bit of wheeling and dealing, I got it for $120. It had come into the shop that morning and the shop owner was fretting over where and how he could arrange all the pieces. He made a $10 profit for holding it for 4 hours and was thrilled....and so was I. It may not be terribly old, it has no markings or name but using my rule for shopping - it doesn't have to be old, you just have to like it.
It is going to be a great addition to my slow progression on my bedroom makeover.
Somehow, I managed to buy all these goodies, get rid of some junk in the bottom of the jewelry box and come home with more money then I started with. Sounds like a good day to me!
