Last Friday my friend Kathy & I took a day trip
to Treasure Cove in Taylorsville, NC
Neither of us had been there before so we were
excited to have a new place to go hunt for some great JUNK!!
We took the scenic route
it was really a pretty drive...lots of big old barns & farm houses
(both pics above from Google Images)
After and hour or so we made it there and
began what would end up being several hours of
hunting through some great stuff!
My car was totally full! Kathy and I both found
some great items at awesome prices!
Here's what I came home with...
metal flower frogs, creamy white ironstone , blue willow mug,
and a sweet little figurine of a little girl and a bird
two freakin awesome vintage cameras!
and Kathy says I have to mention here
that when I found this old ledger book ....
I hugged it like a long lost friend...
Yep...I admit it...I did give it a big hug ( with both arms!)
loved these old jars
aren't those labels so cool
gonna look great in my spring display at the booth next week!
pretty milk glass goblets
I have a customer that wants these for her daughters
vintage wedding for the table centerpieces
two satin glove boxes
two pair of baby shoes ( pink and white)
and we both got a load of these old hankerchiefs ( 40 to be exact )
luckily there was one with a "M"
for Kathy's daughter Meredith
and one with an "H" for my sweet Hannah!
this great old pink candy tin
and two adorable mini size silver ice buckets
such a great size!
we both got two of these metal planters
not really vintage but so cool for spring displays!
Kathy also got a great big garden/tool box in this same metal
several big beautiful platters
the one in the back is a soft pastel blue color
the very bottom one has a pretty gold edge
the other pieces with the pink flowers are Austria China
the dealer threw in the two bowls he had for FREE!!!
( we were lovin that !)
this neat old handmade spice rack
still had the note inside of who made it
back in 1947
it's getting a nice coat of white paint
and last...this old chamber pot
& another small white creamer
it was a good day!
in the hills of North Carolina...
we'll definetly be going back there
the people at The Treasure Cove were so nice!!!
If you are in the Carolinas...it's worth the trip!
I"m doing a big consignment sale this week here in Charlotte
and then headed to the beach on Thursday for the weekend
Busy Busy Busy with TONS of other projects in between
Have a great week!
