Glenda Wanted To Get Out, So We Went To Conway Yesterday

Saturday antiquing with glenda 042Glenda called and wanted to get out Saturday looking and junking. It was a great day to get out.  I had gone to two funerals, made 3 memorials, and sent flowers this week, so I needed to get out. She had told me she needed to take a quilt top to Jennifer Burgess at her shop where she does alterations and quilting. Well, I had bought 3 new shirts that were too long, and I had a pair of pants that were too long, so I went there on the way to pick up Glenda. I didn’t know she had flea market booths and vendors in the back. I roamed through the building and looked at the stuff. I found a big cut crystal rose bowl for $17.00, a houseRussian Lacquered spoon ceramic condiment, and a ceramic house salt and pepper. Then we went to the Humane Society thrift shop in Conway, Antique Junktion, McCallister’s for lunch, Something Special and Salvation Army, Goodwill, and Toad’s Crossing. I picked up several small things. I got  two pianos, a huge mug, 2 crystal angels, a Russian lacquered bowl, a silver-Saturday antiquing with glenda 060plated pies server and meat fork, crystal fruit bowl, and a ceramic watering can figure to make a pin cushion. Fun day and didn’t spend a lot of money. The neatest find was the Russian lacquered bowl. It was only $2.00 at Goodwill. I collect the Russian spoons. Now I have something to put the spoons in. Oh, The tag on the bottom says: USSR.
