A Hot Muggy Day of Treasure hunting….
Summer is here in Washington D.C.! Saturdays are always fun for me because my husband watches our 4 year old and I get to treasure hunt.
This morning I started out at 5:30 am and headed to a sale in Falls Church, Va. I found some early transferware, some custard souvenir pieces, flow blue, and some 1st ed. Little Golden Books. There were also some fun vintage cap guns and lead toy soldiers (not my thing – although I appreciate the nostalgia). I also purchased some vintage Christmas and Halloween items for resale.
Next I headed to some area thrift shops. As soon as I entered the store I saw a piece of Watt pottery in the apple pattern made in the 1940’s. (My mother-in-law collects this so now I can check a christmas present off my list!) I also found some early american pattern glass.
Finally, it was off to Chevy Chase, MD to pick up a tilt- top candle stand. It is in cherry and is complete with the “birdcage” underneath. Probably a revival piece, but still lovely.
With the heat and humidity, I had worked up a sweat, so around 1:30 I headed home for a cold drink and shower.
Another successful Saturday of “retail therapy”. I’m looking forward to next weekend already. Happy Hunting!
