The rest of my stash...

Between my mother, my sister and myself, I think we made at least three trips back and forth to our van during the time we spent at the Allegan Antique Fair on Sunday. The fan dishes and paper lanterns were two of my favorite treasures, but here's the rest of my stash:

My dish obsession also includes doll/children's dishes. I have these fragile objects displayed on my sunroom shelf along with other older children's toys that I've collected over the years.




The dealer was willing to give me these miniature buildings for a song. I thought they would be fun additions to add to our train at Christmas.



I also picked up vintage Thanksgiving candles, a cute ceramic owl, and an orange creamer that I thought we be fun to display on my Halloween shelf.



For the girls, I picked up several record albums for a steal (yes, I still own a record player...call me old fashioned). Emma is currently attending musical theater camp this week (she is one brave girl!!!) and they are preforming Aristocats. Josie keeps asking when the movie is going to start whenever I start the record player. She hasn't quite figured out the listening thing yet.



I always look forward to the Allegan Antique fair. Shopping with my mom and sister....a perfect "ME" kind of day!!

Oh, Kim, I remeber those pilgrim candles from when I was in grade school. Does that make me vintage too????

You did get some really cool stuff! Way to shop, Kim!
I can't wait to hear about Emma's musical on Friday. We will be expecting a big post :)
"Break a leg, Emma!"..... (my girls MADE me say that to them before each of their many performances.hee,hee)

How fun is that?! Cool stuff! I wish I had saved my record player and some of my old albums.

I have those pilgrim candles! They've been in my family for ages -- but they're not "antiques" -- they can't be, I'm not that old!

It sounds like you had a wonderful day with your mom & sister (what a lovely thought) and got some great finds as well. Fun indeed.

FWIW, I don't know about the get-together. I'm thinking it may not happen, not before K goes back to work anyway. I emailed again and have heard nothing. Maybe some other time.

Have a wonderful weekend!
