|The priciest piece--I negotiated down to $15.|
The Hightstown Miniature Show
in Hightstown, N.J., was on Saturday and I was able to run over for 1-1/2 hours. It's quite ideal: small (it's held in a church activity room), fifteen minutes from my house, nice people, and not a lot of vendors (maybe twenty or so). The drawback is that the wares are overwhelmingly traditional, but as with my visit last year
, you can find some vintage gems and other treasures from the $1 bin!
My spoils are in the following photos. I probably did five or six laps around the room, making sure I hit each vendor. I spent more time at some than others, and often found things on my second or third round that I didn't see earlier. Read the captions for more detail!
I hope to use some of these pieces very soon!
|The whole lot! I spent less than $75|
|Neat rug with some handmade purses, a tool box, birdhouse, and a fancy decanter.|
|I have a feeling this light will come in handy.|
|A reindeer head came home with me, even though the seller dropped him as she was wrapping him! We glued him on the spot and he's ready for his closeup.|
|A fireplace and a few knickknacks will likely come in handy. Not sure what the wooden piece is, but it looked like a modern house to me! |
|Vintage fabric, a moose painting, fancy gloves, and some accents caught my eye. |
|A wooden shelving unit will always come in handy!|
|Good for rain!|
|The find of the day: a Lundby "Brasilia" office chair, which I have been looking for to match my other Brasilia pieces: it was $5!!!!|
|This was one of the more unusual finds of the day.|
|I still think this could work as a modern dollhouse in a dollhouse!|
