Antique Store Finds......

In keeping with my goal for the new year, I'm back with another post before I let too much time pass by.

Just after the Christmas and New Year holiday when the last of the bills were paid off, it was time for some more antique store shopping. On my last visit to an antique mall about 30 minutes from my home, I hit pay dirt. I love to visit this antique mall as the prices are always very reasonable, they are always bringing in new merchandise and best of all, one of the dealers has a booth filled with the beautiful vintage/shabby chic type of things that I love, from white or cream painted furniture, china, linens, etc.

Lucky for me on this visit, she was having a huge sale trying to clear out some of her older stuff so she could bring in some new things for spring. I ended up finding three great pieces of furniture that fit in perfectly with my vintage/shappy chic decor.

For years, I have been wanting a small 2-tiered white round table and now I can say that I am the proud owner of one. I snagged this cute little 2-tiered round table for a bargain price of just $18.00. It was painted a distressed eggshell white and matches my china hutch just perfectly. It now stands proudly in one of the corners my dining room displaying a few items from some of my collections.


The second item I found was this sweet little shabby chic style end table. Just like the 2-tiered table I showed earlier, this one was also less than $20.00 and is painted the perfect shade of white. I currently have it in my living room, but I may move it someday.

Lastly, is this painted chair that was on sale for just $5.00. I couldn't believe the price and with it being so low, how could anyone not buy it. It is painted a cream color with a pretty rose boarder. For the moment, I have it sitting in my home office.

I felt like such a lucky shopper on this day to find three pieces of furniture for less than $60.00. Makes this old girl who lives on a very tight budget feel proud of herself for staying within that budget. Now, I can't wait to go back to this store to see what pretty new things the dealer is going to be bringing in for spring. Sigh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Until next time....
