Today I am excited to show you some of the items for sale in a local antique mall! Roosters and hens are so collectible and this one is really cute...
Hanging on an old screen door is a vintage tennis racket with the wooden rack! Look closely and you will see it is a Billie Jean King! (Now for the youngsters out there, Billie Jean turned pro in 1968, won 12 Grand Slams, founder of numerous organizations for women's tennis, retired in 1983, but is probably best known for defeating Bobby Riggs, former Wimbledon men's single champ, in The 1973 exhibition match known as the Battle of the Sexes! After that televised match all little girls had to have her racket!!)
Giving new life to old books and pages...
Clever storage...re-purposing a forgotten cabinet...
Vintage pie safe...("Pies??" asks my friend. "I'll take a slice of lemon!!") No pies today but what a great display for the collectibles...Look at the chippy white!!
When shopping or strolling through an antique mall budget time to walk through more than one time! Reverse your direction the second time through!! You will be amazed at how many new items you can discover! And don't forget to plunder! All vendors want you to stop in their booths!
Tell me about a wonderful "find" from your antiquing!
We've had stormy weather again today and expecting more! Stay safe and listen to the weather reports. This springtime unrest will eventually turn to hot, hot, hot summer!!
Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!
