I didn't buy this sign but it sure did crack me up!
This is just one example of the cleaver marketing at Warrenton. This just a little shed that usually is forgotten, but during the Antique Festival Week all real estate is prized and used.
Still glowing from my FREE bike (see previous post!) I kept seeing bikes and telling myself...I SAVED myself so much money (most bikes were priced around $75). I did however, buy a wire basket for MY yard art bike that will be filled with pretty bright flowers.
This cute little scale needs just a bit of cleaning up. I'm sure when it's clean the pale blue on the base will show up better. The front face of the scale indicates that it's from the early 1900's.
I'm going to make some Easter art out of these flash cards and playing cards. Doesn't it seem like I've ALWAYS got a project on-going or coming up? LOL!
Since I collect Coca Cola stuff I snapped this picture of the local grocery store. There was a vendor selling old rugs and textiles out front. Good place to grab a coke and smile and SHOP!
This metal sign for my shed came from one of my favorite booths at Warrenton and they come back year after year each year bring new and really cute things. I'm going to paint (well, of course I am!) the heart portion of the sign red.
Here is my BIG STEAL of the show. I got these cute metal brackets with the dragonfly's for $2.25 each. I saw a cute garden sign in a booth but, me being me, I didn't want to spend the money they were asking for it. I took a picture and hopefully can make something similar with these brackets, a board, some paint and creativity.
This is the sign I'm going to try and re-create.
Here's my shopping buddy, Susan A. with some metal art flowers from the same booth I purchased the Shed Sign. These little beauties are going to decorate her back yard!
I love old magazines and this is a copy of Life Magazine that was published the week I was born. It's fun to look through it and see what was going on SOOOOO many years ago. And MAN, they sure had a lot of cigarette ads back then.
My friends and I have a dream of buying an old car (almost like this one but we want it to be a convertible and not quite such a low rider). Once we have the car we want to go on a super duper road trip across the country. This one had red leather interior....mmmmmmmmmmm!
By the time the sun was setting at Warrenton we were very tired but very happy with such a productive and beautiful day! And if anyone says shopping isn't a sport, they should try walking around in cow pastures all day...and they will change their mind. Our legs were so sore we could barely stand to get out of the car after the one and a half hour drive home. We hobbled in the house slowly, but glad we had experienced the thrill of Warrenton!
