It had some scratches but with some sanding and some stain it would have been beautiful.
There was a box of old napkins, crocheted table runner, handkerchiefs, and some miscelaneous cotton items, I originally saw online but when I saw at in person I changed my mind. There was also a box of antique shakers, one set were a pair of owls (which are making a comeback) but ended up going for over $50.
My mom collects salt and pepper shakers and I would have gotten them for her if they went for a reasonable price. Now that I think about it, my mom doesn't collect s and p shakers, I just buy them for her. She probably has over 20 pairs, all from random places I have been. She almosts need another shelving unit for them. This kind of reminds me of how my grandma, Nancy would make me lemon bars, and I don't know how she got it in her head that I liked them? I would eat one, but there are other sweets I would eat over a lemon bar. My poor mom, what is she going to do with all these shakers?
There were two items I really wanted. One was this antique thermos, in awesome condition. We missed the bidding on this one, but went for only $12. Makes me want to cry. It's that beautiful Martha Stewart green. All I have to say is bummer.
The other piece I really liked was this antique coffee bean grinder. Which sold for $60. Way out of my price range, but freaking cute. That royal blue print will never go out of style, in my opinion.
Even though we didn't come home with anything, we had a blast. We definitely learned a lot and plan to go to more. We scouted and got a feel for everything. There were also many guns too, which Jake is into.
