OK...OK...Here's My Loot...

Some of my TDIPT Sisters have been asking for pics of my Haul from our Fun Saturday in Clinton...soooo...Here Ya Go Girls!

A Round Vintage Fiberboard Carton w/ a wooden lid. A Kewl Old Glass Candy Jar, Old Spice Tins & Measuring Spoons (that will likely end up in a Festive Gingerbread Grouping for Rebecca's Thyme Holiday Open House) and a couple of Old Beehive Bobbins. The Super Neat Red Scale that my Hubs bought after I mentioned I liked it. It is most likely a Reproduction, but I just Love It anyways!

Old Tin Picnic Containers in my Fave Colors of Red & Green. A set of Old Tin Candle Sticks. A couple of Old Funnels. The Awesome Red one with the Handle was a Gift! From my Friends Clay & Barbie, who I met through Rebecca's Summer Open House. They were set up selling their Beautiful assortment of Primitive Antiques & had saved this Fab Red Funnel for me. Thanks so much you two! I LOVE It! :)

Another Shot of the Picnic Tins & the Fab Red Funnel! Also a Vintage Green Stripe Hat Box...

A Vintage Gameboard w/ all the parts, still in the box! This will go on my Wall with my Gameboard Collection!

I found these Old Suitcases in Three Seperate Booths, but they almost appear to be a matched set! LOL! Also 4 Old Rusty Tin Cones filled with Fresh Sweet Annie...Mmmmmm!

Hub's scored a Great deal on a Fooseball Table for his "Man Cave"...but I'll spare ya the pics of that! LOL! ;)

Fall Fun in Clinton

Hubs & I went to the Fall Antiques Festival in Clinton, TN today. I made a Haul! I Love this Sweet Little Town!

Browsing the Vendors

There was an Antique Car Show too...

This one was my Fave! If I don't get a new motorcycle next spring, I would "settle" for an Old Mustang! :)

Elvis entertained the crowd...

Hubs carried the loot...Hey Yogi...What you got in them Old Pic-A-Nic Baskets? LOL! I can't wait for the Summer Festival!

This is one of my all time favorite pieces. I used my APBT Phil as the model for Rocket Dog.
