It was a beautiful WARM (40 degrees!) day. Yes, I said 40 degrees -- those of you from warmer climates won't appreciate how warm that can feel after a long sub-zero winter. While we rode the hour and a half to Jeffrey's we talked about lots of stuff (and solved all the problems of the world) and she took me to task for not blogging enough. BH told me that I'd been listing lots of really cool stuff in my Etsy shop that she didn't even know I'd bought because I don't blog about it. To be honest, I've been feeling that, if my post isn't about that day's shopping (or maybe the day before), you won't want to hear about it. She thinks I'm wrong (and maybe she's right). So you might be getting some 'old news' from now on! I hope you don't mind if the post starts out with 'Two weeks ago I went to...'
Anyway, Jeffrey's was great fun, as always. All of our family lives in central and southwestern Ohio, so I make the trip up and down 75 very often. There are 2 stops Mr. KV and I are guaranteed to make: Skyline Chili for lunch or dinner and Jeffrey's for antiquing. Both NEVER disappoint! If you're ever by Findlay, Ohio be sure to stop at Jeffrey's and allow at least an hour and a half (or more) to shop -- it's that big!
I've gotten some great deals at Jeffrey's and yesterday, I found these little goodies:
|A Federal Glass black diamonds covered bowl with 8 custards|
|A tinware ice holder from a 'portable refrigerator' (cooler) from the 1950s. It's has the most outstanding gray, black and white design!|
|Here are the instructions on the other side for using your portable refrigerator.|
|I love the sparkle lucite handles on this hamper!|
|The gray table is on the right.|
We spent a couple of hours at Maumee. Here's what I found...
|Two sweet pink and gray canisters -- could these be the start of a new collection?|
|Aluminum trays -- six small and one medium-sized (that can all use a good cleaning). They'll go great with my colored aluminum pitcher and glasses|
|This sweet little tv tray is kid-sized...or it was meant to be a side table. It's very short and the tray is only about 11x14".|
All in all, we had a great time and got lots of treasures! I don't know if I'd make the trip to Delta again, but Maumee is definitely on my return-trip list! I'll post pictures of the tables I bought when I finally can get them out of the car.
