On Saturday, Williamston Antique Market had their annual Summer Sale & Outdoor Market. My shopping buddy Bargain Hunter couldn't go with me and I had so much to do I didn't think I'd get away. I was so surprised (and happy) when Mr. KV volunteered to go with me! We had a fun time on the short outing, sandwiched in between household chores and errands.
The weather was beautiful -- sunny and 70s and there were more vendors outside than there had been in past years.
|Hoenig of California covered pumpkin dish|
|Barkcloth covered sewing box|
|Paper advertising fans -- including some unusual ones (Iwo Jima, Mahalia Jackson and Will Rogers)|
|These western themed tin trays are so cool!|
|An army of birthday angels...|
|These are for me...Commodore Christmas candleholders with unused candles in the original box and all in mint condition!|
The flea market filled Mega Mall's parking lot, but was less vintage and more 'tube socks' than I expected. There were lots of booths that were easy to skip because you could tell at a glance that there was nothing in them that was more than 2 years old or that wasn't made in China. Regardless, I found a couple of things (don't I always?)!
|This TV lamp was so dirty and 'unloved' -- the owner said she was tired of looking at it. Her loss is my gain...|
|Here it is after a good cleaning|
|...and lit up|
|I thought these were fun -- Judy Jewelette sets. They were a mid-century version of the Bedazzler, complete with 'rubies, diamonds, emeralds and pearls'|
|An extra-large -- 10 cup -- Pyrex stovetop percolator, complete with insides|
|I think this dark green and chartreuse plastic pitcher is pretty cool|
|This is the star of the day -- a mid-century wood and woodgrained formica drinks cart -- rolling bar. I'm trying to figure out a way to ship it so I can list it on Etsy|
