Saturday Finds....

Unlike the dark, gloomy and wet Sunday we are having here in Minnesota today, Saturday was a beautiful day for the most part with sunny skies in the morning and mild temperatures, so of course I just had to get out of the house for a bit and pay a visit to one of my favorite antique shops.

The shop I visited on Saturday was the same shop where just last month I found some great stuff, for very cheap. My favorite dealer in this store prices her items on the extremely low side which I love and she has very similar tastes to me, so I always seem to find a few goodies to bring home and yesterday was no exception.

Spending just under $14.00 total, I snagged this cute wicker flower basket which is a soft mustardy yellow color. The basket is it almost perfect condition so I'm guessing it must be fairly new...

And a pair of Laura Ashley pillow shams, which of course are covered in pretty roses...

Not a bad day of bargain shopping if I do say so myself.

See you Tuesday for more tea time fun!!!

How great to find a dealer who has low prices. We love to find them when we are scouting antique malls. There always seems to be at least one. Lovely finds.

Hi Kim, my name is Cindy, and i'm new to blogging, but i love to look at all your pretty things. I went out today bargain shopping, because it was a cold rainy day here in Oz,but came home with nothing, so started making Christmas wreaths instead. Some days you're lucky, others , you're not i guess. You have found some great little treasures. Congrats on winning the blog giveaway. Hugs Cindy
