So, after two and a half days of work, I took this afternoon off to play. See, I've set myself a schedule this summer. Mondays and Fridays are cleaning days. Tuesday and Thursdays are house project days and Wednesdays are play days! Good schedule, right?
I did paint the second coat on the back porch today, so I didn't play ALL day. I took the afternoon off and went thirsting with a pal O'mine. We stayed right in the Fan pretty much. We hit a couple of swanky antique stores that we had both wanted to check out. Cabell House Consignment at Belmont and Elwood had some nice stuff. Pricing was generally good, but some of it was wacky. I still get a bit weirded out by taking pics inside a store, so I don't have anything to show you. We also hit the antiques store right next to Acacia Midtown. They had SUPER cool stuff, very pricy, but really neat, stuff. Ivory folding rulers, old fire hose nozzles, an old German wall map, cool old globes, Jefferson cups, and lots of other unique stuff. I fell in love with the industrial coat rack, but it was a thousand dollars. Just a wee bit out of my price range this week.
I did score big at the thrift stores though. We hit the Clothes Hanger on Cary St that is run by the Junior League. This is what I picked up there:
We also hit Fan Thrift and I picked up the following for a steal:
Last week, I picked up these winners at an estate sale:
What have you scored lately?
