When you least expect it........

Out Antiquing....

Last Saturday was a beautiful bright sunny day, so we hopped into the truck and took off

to the 400 Market/ Road Show Antiques. 

Over 30,000 square feet of Antiques........

Everything from soup to nuts!!!!

You never know what you might find....

WELL!!!! To my surprise tucked under and in behind...........

I have been searching for this apple box for years....... It measures 23" x 11"

I have found many over the years on  my travels but way out of my budget range.......

So after digging it out I was amazed it was only $45.00........

YIPEEE!!!! This is going home with me.....

Now this booth had so many items that I could have loaded up the back of the truck with...

But hubby pulled on my reins and said.............

I can't wait to decorate it, .......... for Harvest time.....Christmas...... and, and, and

You see the faux pears that are in it came at no extra well as a few extra pieces that

I'm going to share at a later date.

So can you see why I got so excited...... Now we are on another isle and I spot this little gem.

This small transfer ware soup tureen.

 It may be missing its ladle but It's going home with me.
At $23.00 and made in Japan I wasn't leaving it behind.

Hmmm I can see this as a planter or part of my Harvest display with my other  brown transferware dishes.

So I do believe I had a wonderful day antiquing in this fun Truck.


So when you least expect it.............

Thanks for visiting!
