|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!|
