memorial weekend is
always a great buying trip for us
first leg is
rogers flea in ohio
this is a sign i always like to see..haha
this was one of those 'what is it ?' items
turns out to be a very old movie projector
gotta love a load like this one !
and we always do ribs for lunch at rogers
this guy has the BEST
wish this was mine...........
we move on to salem ohio..
and hit the antique stores there...
then arrive in alliance for overnite.
i hang by the pool for a little while at our hotel..
gotta cool down the heat was insane !
there's an auction down the road
(every friday nite there)
we checked that out..
then dinner and a movie.
right connected to our hotel
(movie there is $2.75..cant beat that !)
then off to bed for early rise and head out to hartville ohio
have to say was disappointed in hartville
this year...dont think we will come back again
it has changed....more FLEA stuff
we prefer a lean toward antique stuff
oh well..have to find somewhere else for next year
also our favorite breakfast restaurant
we found closed for good...
i really wanted this..(above)
really really wanted this...
but just couldnt go for it..
too hot to move it....
more money than i wanted to spend
but oh so awesome
so sunday ..
back home and off to the
washington antique fair
great show..but gotta get there early
to beat the heat..
not a lick of shade
below was another 'what is it?' item
the lable on it said
some of us thought it was some sort of scale,
another lady thought it was for tape..
dont really know, but very cool looking
after the fair,
headed to trader jack's flea
which is not one of my favs
(sorry lucy, i know it's yours- i still dont get that)
but it's on the way home...so..
did end up getting a type there though.
well, 3 fleas, a few antique shops, an auction and an antique fair
not a bad way to spend a few days...
i got a few goodies..
bank bags for an upcoming project,
loads of silverware (have to stock up when i can)
some great stuff for my garden, plants and decor, and an awesome fence...
some new decor stuff for the farmette inside...
i wish i had worn by pedometer..
cant imagaine how many miles we walked !!
i realize this is picture heavy...
i am a huge talker in person,..hahahahahaha
(that's an understatement)
but most of the time,
my pics say it all...
hope if you dont flea,
you at least get a feel for what it's like...
til next trip
