A Fun Day Antiquing

Here is a framed needlework sampler that I found to add to my collection.

Here is a cute little metal jewelry stand. There are lots of holes in the lines of the skirt to hang the earrings that I make. It would be great for another craft show display.

The wooden ladder will be perfect to drape my quilt over against a tall wall in our guest room.

My husband and I explored  an antique mall that was new to us yesterday.  When Saturdays are cold or wintry we like to ride in the car looking for antique stores in our region.  We have discovered the best ones within a 50 mile radius. This one was in Belmont, North Carolina and is called the Catawba Antique Mall.  The warehouse contained over  88,000 square feet of booth spaces.  Vendors displayed rustic, retro, french inspired and repurposed antiques. Whatever your taste in decor, you could find almost anything you like. It was amazing! Here are my finds.  The best item was a wooden ladder that I plan on using to display my newly restored quilt. Upon my restoration expert’s advice, I will spray paint it first with an acrylic spray to avoid any discoloration from the wood onto the fabrics. Stay tuned for the finished results.
