Guess how much giveaway challenge? You will see as you scroll further down. I may do more of these throughout the year if I find worthy objects. Stroll along with me as we go on an antique shopping expedition for Christmas presents, and for the big reveal on the giveaway.
I think I just found my new favorite place! I don’t go to antique shops much anymore because I’m used to yard sale prices, but I love to browse and get ideas.
Only problem is, I often forget to actually look for presents. I get caught up in what I like! But I tried to be good. At the end, I will show you what I bought.
For now, see what caught my eye….
I LOVE this!
Shaped like a large book on a podium was this interesting rustic wooden piece~
There’s a little drawer at the bottom.
Looks like a desk accessory or a secretary of sorts?
Isn’t this lamp just the coolest?? The caps have been flattened and glued to the shade…pretty quirky, but I like it!
Looks like this might be fairly simple to do….
Itty bitty train case about 10″ square. Priced at $17. I LOVE vintage train cases and snap them up when the price is right!
Get a load of this retro TV! And it was HEAVY! Wouldn’t this be a great conversation piece???
The seller was calling this a “Nice wooden shelf.” But we know better. It’s an old wooden telephone shelf with a place for a phone book. Priced at $35.
Love this too…maybe I shoulda bought it….
Since I’m a rustic girl, I would love to have this in my house, but hate to cut a hole in the wall.
And when I saw THIS….
And when I saw THIS…oh my!
It was hand to heart….
It was “OHHHH!”
It was a trembling sigh…
(while hubby is rolling his eyes)
It was a memory from 1964…
IT WAS THE BEATLES!!!!
and if you’re just dying to see my other Beatles’ post, go here The Hottest Yard Sale Buy.
As much as I’d love to have coffee every morning with John, Paul, George, and Ringo, I reluctantly passed.
I couldn’t help it….ouch…I laughed when the mall owner told me how much…..
and now the….
Guess How Much Giveaway Challenge
SOOO…..thought I’d present you all with the first ever Guess How Much Giveaway Challenge….
THE FIRST PERSON TO GUESS CORRECTLY THE PRICE OF THE MUG….
…WINS a $10 Chic-Fil-A gift card!
(The person coming closest in price wins. Guesses accepted until Saturday, December 17 at 10pm)
Now, you want to see what I bought??? Of COURSE you do!
For a dear friend who loves hummingbirds~
For another friend who loves vintage junk like I do…
But I had to do a little modification on it…didn’t like the bare wood on the bottom. That needed to be fixed, so I matched the colors with a blend of 3 Oops paint colors I had. I think it looks pretty good!
See if this doesn’t look better…..
Last 2 items I bought for me to sell in my Etsy shop…..
Love this rustic oak recipe box with dove-tailed joints….
This immediately caught my eye from across the aisle…..
It is quite large and plays music too. Paint or not?
That’s it for antiquing! Don’t forget to guess the price on the Beatles’ mug!!
