Golden Antiques in Summerfield, the antique mall where we
found the map I love so much hosted a community yard sale yesterday!
You remember the map, right? Well, since we always seem to find something worth
dragging home, (like this sign) we decided to take a ride out to Summerfield!
The sale did not disappoint... There were a lot of people selling all sorts of
great treasures. Truthfully, the only thing yard-sale about it was the low
prices. I'm hoping that Golden Antiques considers making it an annual event!
This little set caught my eye so I grabbed it. I initially only wanted the pitcher, but
was happy with the dealer's offer to sell me all three pieces for only $10. I can't
wait to fill the pitcher with tulips! It's heavy Greenwood China. This set was
manufactured for the Stonega coal camp hospital in Virginia. Read about
about that here. I love it when there's a story that comes along with a find!
I also picked up this holy water holder made in Italy for only $4!
After Summerfield, we decided to take a little drive to Asheboro. I wasn't
in the mood to visit the zoo so we walked downtown and wandered through
some of the antique shops. We found a few things of interest. Some scary...
Some that made us just wonder why...
And other stuff sure to light up any room!
I found only one thing I had to bring home...
Because I had the perfect spot for it!
I couldn't believe it... I've been searching for a rooster for, Forever!
And now... I have one! Willie-pig looks pretty happy about it too!
Totally worth the last minute detour trip to Asheboro from Summerfield!
Such a good, quiet rooster!
