Last Week’s Antiquing

Well, I lost this post twice. Maybe I’ll get it done now. Last week there was a sale downtown across the railroad tracks. I went and found a couple of things. Then I went to Debbie’s across the street and found some things for a mobile I have been thinking about making. I found a flower frog for Mary Margaret, a miniature Christmas sweater that lights up. a stained glass small lamp shade, a wooden box to wood burn, a brass Chinese candleholder, a box of sample fabrics for hand towels, and a couple of other things.

I went to Roy Dudley’s sale in Little Rock to get a petit point purse that I had seen on his website. I found 5 of my red crystal Viking plates. They were marked $40. I was going to pay the $200 for them, but one of the workers said it was 75 % off that day. Well that meant I was only going to have to pay $50 for the five plates. But, when I checked out the five were marked only $40 total. That meant I got the five for $10.00. Bargain of the century. The last ones I found were $35.00 each. Yea, Me!




This is the photo I saw on Roy Dudley’s website of the oriental petit point purse I bought.
