Loot, swag, booty....fabulous junk!

It turns out that the big 50% off sale at the local antique store
was quite the event. I arrived 15 minutes before opening,
and there was already a line snaking around the building!
You woulda thunk Hannah Montana tickets were on sale. ;-)

I was about the twentieth person in line,
but hey, I'm still relatively young and fast and I knew what I wanted,
so I just shoved a few blue hairs out of the way
and made a bee-line for what I had scouted out yesterday.

Yep, I did score the precious little pink stool and the Windsor Chair...

I just finished touching him up
with a little dark walnut stain, and he looks incredible!

There was a wonderful selection of vintage suitcases....
my personal faves were the second and fourth from the top.

Been looking for a vintage kitchen scale,
and the one in the center fits the bill nicely.

In conclusion, I also unearthed a treasure so remarkable,
so unspeakably lovely, that I simply must save it for tomorrow's entry.
It will be worth checking back to get a peek....

I'm a sucker for all kinds of chairs, so you really did land a couple of great finds. Usually those sorts of sales make me nervous, people rushing and grabbing, kind of a frenzied atmosphere. Sounds like you had a well executed plan which turned out great!

Great job on the chairs... I also love those antique scales!

Have a great weekend,

We too are new shop owners. Love your chairs. Love auctions the best as then everybody has a chance but have to learn to sit on my hands once in a while!
