Each February/March we head an hour North to Deland, Florida for the day. The husbands are dropped off at the Deland Craft Beer Festival while the wives grab lunch and enjoy the shops! I snapped a few photos on my Iphone to share with you. Loved this booth pictured above at Back Home Antiques and Collectibles on Woodland Boulevard. They had all kinds of small treasures like buttons and lace neatly packaged and ready for creating and embellishing.
These little lambs under glass were precious. I would have loved a few for Easter but they were a little pricey. I know my friend Deb at Common Ground would have bought them all!
My friend Jodi and I are always looking for old cigar memorabilia for our husbands. Loved this "Sweet Cuba" tin.
This particular store has an entire section devoted to ephemera! I spent a long time sorting through old photos, print ads, calling cards, Valetines, post cards....you name it! Doesn't this look like fun?
Here are a few of my purchases from the day. Just bits and pieces to play with and inspire. Ready for the scariest find of the day? (Isn't there always one?)
Princess Grace....Please tell me her bangs did not come like this? lol Looks like a little girl did some trimming to me and look at that make up. Ready for my favorite finds of the day? ....the salvage store...Florida Victorian Antiques on Georgia Avenue. I took very few photos because I was way too busy sorting through bins of old hardware! So fun.
Thanks for coming along with me! I'll share a few more purchase with you soon. Found some fun items on this trip and really enjoyed the company too. Hope you are having a great week! xoxo
