**This old, chippy medicine cabinet was calling my name the minute I saw it. I shamelessly ran over to it as if someone was chasing me screaming BUY IT BUY IT! I can not tell you why I have become so obsessed with them, but I think I have about 5 sitting in my living room waiting to be taken over to the antique booth! I am defiantly not touching. Someone who loves chippy old picks will adore this!
**So, I am standing outside of a booth at the festival, that just didn't appeal to me, while my friend shopped it, which I spotted this awesome sign. I bolted into the booth, thinking that it had to be well above my price range, and saw that I could give this dealer as much as we usually spend on a trip to the local fast food place! I couldn't bare to try to talk him down either, because his price was fair, and I wanted this sign! I didn't get three booths down when someone stopped me and asked where I got this awesome sign!
**Some people may look at this picture below and say "it's a box. A BOX" but me, I get so excited over this. The charming locking set in front, the handles on the side, the patina all around it beautiful. I think someone is going to love taking this box home. I just know it!
**Now this... this is a beauty. It needs a little hug, but it is a beauty. I just look at this piece and wonder.... where has it been, what kind of "bread n cakes" did it hold, what child put those stickers on the front and what were the stickers of? I can see a housewife of the 1950's storing her homemade cakes in it. A little clean up work, and it will be a great pick for someone.
So, we enjoyed ourselves, and we got some great picks. Now it is time to get to work as the move in date for our new booth is approaching!
