Anyone who really knows me,
knows that I hate shopping..in malls, grocery stores and the like.
However get me into an antique store or an antique show...
its hard to get me out.
Last week's show was no exception.
Bob and I arrived at the show at 6:00am
and by 6:45am, we already made two trips to the van with goodies.
Then I spotted something that I absolutely fell in love with.
I knew it had to come home with me.
Unfortunately the vendor was no where to be seen.
I asked the vendors on both sides if they knew when this particular vendor
was going to show up.
One told me 10 minutes and the other by 7:30.
I was like a mad dog and this item was going home with ME.
Bob said lets come back.
I said NO WAY!!
I am staying right here until this guy comes.
You can go and shop, but I am staying put.
Bob went off to shop and like a good guard dog,
I guarded my precious item to the bitter end. LOL
Others came up to look at MY item, and I simply told them it was already sold.
They must have thought I was the vendor...but at the time, I did not care.
I was going to buy this item.
This piece was going home with ME...
AND IT DID...YIPPEE.
I absolutely fell in love with this blue cupboard.
I gave up my pot belly cabinet to add the blue cupboard into my kitchen.
It was worth it to me.
I added two crocks and an 1800's splint basket to the top.
On our way back home,
we stopped at a little primitive store inside a barn.
This fun store is called
The Old Granary.
Loved shopping inside and came home with some goodies from there too!
One of them was this brown prairie bonnet.
So what do you think?
Was it worth it for me to wait 45 minutes?
I say YES!!
Spring Blessings to all,
