Antiquing in Tontitown and Alma

Fayetteville Rogers 022On Sunday when going to Bentonville I had some time to kill so I went to Tontitown to do the flea markets and antique stores. On the way back home on Tuesday I stopped at Alma and went through Two Sisters. Not really looking for anything much in particular. Just looking for things I can make out of old things. I found several containers to make pin cushions out of, a woodenro 1 rocking bench to make a petit point seat or a pin cushion, a single tall crystal salt shaker, a petit point and brass bass pin cushion (I have never seen one), a cherub vase for that collection, silver-plated pie server, a windmill demi spoon, picture frames to paint water colors in, Halloween cupcake picks to use with wooden spools to make figures, hand-painted china plate, china salt and pepper for a friend, a German dresser doll, and a Victorian watercolor of a dancer. I had a lot of fun shopping and killing time and found several useful 2ro 3Fayetteville Rogers 022

    Jim- in the photo that has the gold & white piece and the cherub vase there is a shepherdess with a dog. Would you consider selling that to me? I have a piece almost like it that my grandfather gave me when I was a little girl.

      Nina, I bought it to make a pin cushion out of it. It has no sentimental value to me. It was just a vessel to make a pin cushin. I think it was $4.
      I’ll be glad to let you have it for that. Now pester me until I take it to James. I have a tendency to foreget when I am busy during the summer.

  2. I love the handpainted plate!!! When you die I want it. Just kiddining!
