January Antique Extravaganza

I was in heaven for the second weekend in a row.

Look at the Foo dog hiding on the right.

This started the ball rolling... AND I WAS OFF!!! 

I found this chair and candelabra at my first stop and met the nicest girl from Ormond beach...I wish I could remember her name, but she had great taste and even greater pieces.

I passed on him and I should not have!

Since Caroline was in school, I had the biggest, loveliest lunch on a picnic table. For those of you who know me, you know that I cannot resist a hot dog.  When I was a girl, my Granddaddy would make the best Oscar Meyer hot dogs in the world. He would load it up with Vidalia onions, brown mustard, homemade pickle relish, sour kraut, ketchup, mayo and of course, lots of LOVE and that would normally be a Saturday lunch. We would then go and work in the yard all day...hence my love of gardening!
Have I mentioned that I LOVE hot dogs?!!

These dough bowls were great and I had met this same gentleman from Rosemary Beach at Scott's last weekend.  Even though he was  from Florida, he had that sweet Alabama accent. I did try to charm him to get him off his prices a bit, but sadly to no avail. Clearly, it was not his first rodeo and Clearly, I'm not as young and cute as I used to be...hahaha! But, I did give it a good go !!

Dough Bowls are harder and harder to find these days!

These urns below were fabulous but needed a little work. The Vendors were very nice and the wife and I exchanged thoughts on how nice it was to be married to someone that you had met at 17.  She had been happily married for 34 years. She had a surprisingly good attitude for one sitting out in the dirt and wind, in the cold, far away from home haggling with housewives.  I need to be more grateful!!!

Next time, I will show you what else I got.  Clearly, this is not all as you can see below from my husband's full car. Caroline and Bob did not think I could do it alone, but where there is will there is a way! 
I love a full car

 Please Mark Your Calendars for February 1! Caroline and I are so excited about the gallery!
