Season Opening

Well, Sunday was the season opening for the Aberfoyle Antique Market and despite the freezing cold rain and wind, my mom and I took my little Sam to his first of many Sundays there.
He had it easy... being pushed around nice and warm under his inclement weather dome and asleep for the whole outing. While my mom and I froze our fingers off and questioned both our sanity and whether or not it was worth it.

I did come home with a few great finds though. Just snapped some pictures of my treasures today and thought I'd share them.
First find of the day...

Lovely little wooden ampersand typography block...just 3 dollars!, I love dictionaries, calligraphy, typography, basically anything to do with when I came across this guy I just had to have it.

My next fabulous find was this mint Samsonite goldenrod train case.

I found it at the start of the day and wasn't sure if I really needed it or not. I wanted it but I had to know what I was going to use it for before buying it. So I left it, and proceeded to worry about losing it all day. I finally remembered this and thought I could transform Mr. Samsonite into a carry all for my small hand sewing and embroidery projects.
And really, for $18 how could I not buy it?

I found this next...

Another lovely little hobnail piece for my collection. Cause that's what i need...more glassware. I could hear Mr. Snips in my head loud and clear...where are you going to put it, don't you have enough, we need a bigger house. Five dollars people! There was no way I was letting this one go.

My last purchase of the day was the camera in the middle.
A nice Brownie Reflex for my collection. Fantastically dirty on the inside for lots of character in the photos and at only fifteen dollars I snatched it right up. Now I just need to make a new contraption for it and find my tripod...hmmm.
