My Weekend Part II - Vintage & Antique Goodness

As I said yesterday, today, I wanted to write about the rest of my weekend, this time sharing all the vintage and antique goodness I stumbled upon yesterday.

I took an Artist's Date intending to just go to the Igloo Letterpress' Summer Treasure Sale. While there, I happened upon Worthington's Treasure Sale on the Green, which was basically a large outdoor flea market.

I found this awesome vintage children's chalkboard, with a paper picture roller.

Sorry the pic is so blurry. The knobs on the end scroll the paper up &
down, which tells a story with using the alphabet & numbers.

I also happened upon this 1940s laboratory scale, with all these paper goodies tucked inside.  I didn't even see them until I got home & unpacked the box.   

I wanted these suitcases but had already spent enough money. 

This was my first visit to the town's center. It's a really cute place. 

Love these tin stamps/tiles (if that's correct) in the brick sidewalks. 
After this solo excursion, M & I went out for dinner locally & we stopped by Matilda Charlotte Antiques. I got an antique sewing "bin." Not sure what I'll use it for yet but I'm sure I'll figure something out relatively quickly :)

Since one of my blog/business goals is to improve my photography skills, you will definitely see more pics here, as I work on taking better pictures. I just got an iMac & am loving iPhoto. Not sure what took me so long to convert, since I've had an iPad for a while now & love it. Anyway, thanks for stopping by & hope that you are having a lovely Sunday.

Abby - My only complaint about flea markets is that everything I want is usually out of my price range...
