Weathering the first outdoor Allegan Antique market of 2014!

Despite the insane crazy wind gusts and incredibly cold temps, my mother, sister and myself braved our first outdoor Allegan Antique market of 2014 on Sunday.   It was quite the adventure!!

 I'm being brave posting this group selfie.  We were so cold!!!  Emma's group selfie from Easter was much prettier.  hee hee.
I had summer on the brain when I picked up this salt water taffy tin.  
The tin has already found a new home in our beach-themed bathroom.
The Effanbee doll has made new friends in my craft room.
The miniature log cabins and maple syrup containers will be added my cabin collection.
I think my favorite purchase of the day were these camp stools.
The girls tested them out Sunday evening in our backyard Camp Toadstool.
I think they'll be perfect seating for roasting marshmallows. 

I hope you had a wonderful weekend having your special adventures.

It looks like you WEATHERED that market in fine shape That tin is really cute in your bathroom.
My daughter still has her Effanbee baby that she got for her first birthday. She played with it but I set the original clothes aside and redressed it and gave it to HER daughter on HER first birthday. I hope she still has it.
Love your camp stools!!!
I suppose you are back to work tomorrow- xo Diana
