Treasures and Antiques

This weekend, my friend Crys and I went to the big Antique Show in our area.  Talk about excited!  Our schedules only allowed us to go for a couple of hours on Saturday and Sunday.  Not nearly enough time!  We didn’t even finish seeing all there was to see because it was so big.  If I had oodles of money and time….  Ahhhh!

I did purchase a huge arm chair.  Saw it on Saturday, thought about it and then went home.  When I saw it again on Sunday, I just knew it needed to come home with me.  Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an arm chair so big!  It’s going to be recovered and put in my library/office. 

I also bought an old eyelet press from the late 1800’s to early 1900.  Don’t need one, just thought it was cool and the price was cheap.  When I got home, I did some research and found out they can be worth as much as $100.00.  Woohoo!  Treasure hunting is sooo cool!

My friend Crys, however, bought the most awesome piece of furniture there.  No kidding, everyone stopped to look at it.  It’s an old document drawer from the 1860’s.  It was in near perfect condition.  We were told it came from a courthouse in Ohio.  It was still there on Sunday, so she took that as a sign! : )  So I’m hoping, being her friend and all, that when she get’s tired of it, she’ll remember her treasuring hunting buddy and hand it down to me.  I have a feeling I will be waiting a very long time.

So that’s how I spent the last two days of Spring break.  Treasure hunting and antique shopping!!

Not an antique, but it’s old.

    Love the chair. Dad loves the cars – would like to have both of them – for Father’s day or his birthday – whatever works for you!
