Antiquing in the Country

I am off to Antique Alley today, hoping that the rain holds off and doesn't scare away too many sellers. It's 15 miles of antiques and yard sales between Cleburne and Grandview, TX held twice a year. I've missed just one sale in the last six years because I was out of town. Sometimes I bring my camera, but I seem to miss some of the most unique things. Last year, I saw two girls with two large goats on leashes, like they were going for a walk.

Here are a few photos from last September's hunt.

Great chippy "stuff".

I always buy some vintage lace and trim from this seller.

See this loooong table? It's covered in bags full of trims, flowers, sequins, game pieces, fabric, etc. I always find a few bags of treasures here. This is usually our first stop and I love seeing what she has out.

Before I go, we need a winner! The winner of the travel ephemera pack is...

PhotoDivaJ: Our family is planning a month long trip... A few days in London, then to Tuscany, Italy, for a week with my family, over to Barcelona, Spain to board the Disney Cruise, back to Spain! This is over the course of a month. For now, I'm up to my eyeballs in books, travel arrangements and planning! Is it Summer yet?

Please use the "Contact Us" link to send me your mailing address. I'll get your prize out to you right away. I think we'd ALL like to join you on this trip!

Erica, I am completely green with jealousy over here! Somehow cleaning my house is not going to be nearly as fun as the fun you are having today!!! I could not imagine looking at that long table of trims!! I would be in heaven! I hope your weather is great and you find a lot of treasures!!
