We found lots of goodies, and my husband and I had finished re-purposing a few items that added to the booth!
Treasure hunting is amazing. I just love picking through all the old, dirty, rust covered treasures to see what we can find. I often think... boy, if they just made things like they used to... but they don't! I don't know whether it is lack of innovation, laziness, or just the fact that manufactures, want to produce and shove items out the door as fast as they can to make as much money as they can.... but its sad. These items... treasures from the past are priceless.
I look at them and wonder... what is the story. Did this teacup travel here from another country as a gift from one family member to another? Whose house did this shabby chic, chippy medicine cabinet come from? How many of these vintage ornaments belonged to someones grandma?
I hope, if/when you come across a antique/vintage find... you think about the story, and the fact that the item is priceless, because if you just toss the treasure to the curb, you wont find anything as truly beautiful like it again....
