Friday hooker friend Melissa and I headed to the wool sale at the Ault's in Shelby, Ohio. They are downsizing their shop and are having a wool sale throughout the month of February. Most of the antiques were already sold, but I did pick up this little folding chair. Nothing great, but for $3.00, I couldn't leave it there. The bear is vintage and definitely has "age". It was mine as a child :)
Sunday I headed to an antiques show. Last year I thought the show was really good. This year, not so much. If you liked jewelry, you would have been in heaven. It was slim pickins for primitive antiques, but of course, I did manage to bring home a couple new old treasures.
I love this thread keeper/pin cushion. The dealer thought it to be circa 1860. It did have some damage so I thought it was very reasonably priced. She had several others that I would have liked to have bought, but . . . sigh, I can't have everything I want or I'd be in the poor house in a nano second.
I know absolutely nothing about toy sewing machines. This is my second one so I need one more to have the start of an official collection :) Does anyone know if they have been reproduced? This one just seems to be in too good of a condition and just doesn't look quite "right" for a vintage one, but no matter, I am happy it is now residing with me.
The newest pillow pet :-)
Happy Monday. Thank for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
