Monday Montage- Goodies We Found

Our adventure is over...
We arrived back home on Saturday
sunburned and tired.

Our trip to Springfield Ohio was awesome!
Found lots and lots of goodies for both the store and our home.
Our van was full and we came back home with $14.00 in our pocket...
Well Bob had the money in his pocket, not me. LOL

We had the opportunity to meet Ben from Folk Magazine.

Inside the Folk barn

Bob and I finally got to meet Angie

Angie was selling her wares inside the Folk Barn.
I was lucky enough to purchase one of her folk dolls.
Thank you Angie. It was fun to finally meet you!
Oh yeah...that yellow bucket bench you see, came home with us too...

I took this pic of this cute gal all dressed up in a quilt dress in our store.
The blue in the quilt goes well with my turquoise little crock bowl.
She is sitting on this....

Circa 1820 to 1860 Mammy's Rocking Bench
It seems Bob forgot to put the mop bucket away...
and he took these pics...geez it's hard to get good help these days. LOL

Goodies Added To Bench

Early Cement Black Boy

One Board Early Dry Blue Paint Sawbuck Table
(this pic does not do this piece justice)

Some Goodies Added To Table

One Board Top Red Dry Paint Bucket Bench

Same Bench Filled To The Brim

Bob and I found so many awesome items for our store.
We did not expect to fill the van in one day, but we did!
Because of that, we cancelled our buying trip to Kentucky.

Let me know what you think.

More goodies to come....
