Goodies from our Vacation

Since Blogger has not been allowing everyone to add comments, I have extended my giveaway through the weekend. Please see my giveaway post for details.

Now for some of the goodies that Bob and I were able to find for our store on our vacation.

This bookcase is painted turquoise inside.
We displayed it in our "Mantique" section.

Bob really liked this sign. Its heavy too!

The Victorian bed with an early blue and white coverlet.

Nice old crock cabinet, with our late 1800 butter churn on the right.
The flag is a vintage 48 star one.

This tobacco rack is stenciled and in pretty good condition for its age.
The cheese box in the middle underneath was another find. I loved the patina on it.

Large trencher with metal patches.
Firkin on the floor.
Vintage croquet balls in a solid color.

These are just a few of the things we found.
I will add more pics over the weekend.
Tomorrow night I am heading up into the Thumb of Michigan to stay with my mom for the evening,
and going to a huge estate sale up there Saturday morning, which is being held by the family of a former antique lady that passed away earlier this year. Julia was in her 90's and kept her store open up until only a few years ago...hopefully Bob and I can keep our store open as long as she was able to, god willing. She was an inspiration to all of us youngsters in the business.

Hope you all have a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend.
Remember our soldiers who risk their lives every day so that we have the freedom to choose.
Take care,
