Yesterday, after Emily and I took some time to rest and feel a little bit better, and Al made it in from morning chores, we decided to go for a ride. You can only watch so many cartoons. I suggested we go to the Barnesville Antique mall. There are 3 floors in this store. All crammed packed with old stuff. Mostly glassware. Really, expensive, delicate glassware. And yes, we took Emily into this store. She did great. We did not end up buying anything that was broken...whew! And she loves looking at the different colors of glassware. The depression glass was a real favorite of hers.
We found a couple of old De Laval signs. De Laval is a company that handles milking supplies, and has for years. The signs are collectible. We have one already that is in our cheese house, but it's always tempting to pick up one or two more! :) We didn't...but, I did tuck one away, just in case I want to go back and pick it up.
I did take some pictures, though they are not the best. I forgot to take my camera. What was I thinking??? But, I did remember that my phone has a camera. So, I pulled it out and took a few pics!
Emily standing in front of the rack full of doll babies.
She would've bought them all, I'm sure!
The enamelware is something I really like.
I bought a large, yellow stock pot at a flea market for $8.00, found the
exact same one here at the antique mall for $24.00. I did good!
Glass, glass and more glass. And my daughter right there close to it!
She was interested in the old baby buggies and cradles
Odd N End stuff. I could've taken hundreds of
pictures of racks full of beautiful treasures!
I've also recently been doing a little "treasure hunting" at the Goodwill in Marietta. It's amazing what you can find there. A lot of stuff I pick up there for a song, I seen at the antique mall for quite a bit! I may have to brush up on my knowledge of what is collectible and valuable. Who knows what I may run across!
I found this platter at Goodwill for about $1.00. It's really
heavy and beautiful! Can't wait to use it this Thanksgiving and Christmas!
Since we've done a small antique mall with Emily, and found that we won't break everything in sight, our next antique stop will be the River Front Antique Mall in New Philadelphia, Ohio. If you have a chance to go there, it is an amazing antique mall. It can take hours to look through it all. And, the last time we went they had a little food stand to get a bite to eat and rest your feet!
Talking about Antiques just reminded me...there is 2 new episodes of Pawn Stars on tonight.
I love seeing what old stuff (or fake stuff) people bring into this shop.
Have a great week!
