Antiquing and Flea Marketing in Hot Springs

Roy 1, Roy 2, Morrilton with G, August 2014 045When Deanna and I went to Hot Springs to do their guild lecture we antiqued on the way. We went to about 5 stores and really found some goodies. One store was going out of business and everything was 40 % off. So we really shopped. I found 2 silver plated pie servers, cranberry servers, tongs, and a cranberry server, and a boiled egg lifter I was really looking for. I got a a Dolche and Gabanna evening bag for $6. It has a big D G in rhinestones for Dot Gatling. Got a ceramic cat in cushion, a blown glass I cushion, a miniatureHS 1 mustache cup for a present, and an Elfinware box. Then there was a crystal round paperweight, and a small, maybe a child’s bon-bon server, and a crystal toothpick holder. One of my most interesting finds was a large wooden woman container from the 40’s. I have a small man and a small woman perfume bottle. Really neat. I found a mallard duck for Blake, and a mustache cup for Matt and Fina. Oh, I got a wooden piano for the grandkids to give to their grandmother for Christmas. I’ve already started toile panting it. I’ll show y’all later. I added a new china salt shaker to my collection, a iniature bisque Grecian woman, a hand-painted small dish, and a Dresden piece for $2. I found out that is worth about $20. Got a great white oak basket, a wooden doll high chair and a wooden tray. I am restoring the wooden tray now. Great finds. Great day.
