Recently, I had the pleasure of attending an antique show with my mom. Simply attending an antique show is fun in itself; but when I can go with my mom, it is a real treat. She knows so much about so many things. I enjoy listening to her stories about how her grandmother used some of the things that we saw, and explaining to me the history about different dishes (her specialty). We had a delightful day, and I managed to take a few pictures of some of the highlights. However, when we walked in the door, and I looked at the first cute thing, I was taken back by the prices. And then I remembered .... I wasn't at a thrift store, or at a Farm Chicks sale, I was at an antique show. Therefore, I prepared myself for antique show prices.
These cute salt and pepper shakers I would have loved to have purchased. But because of the high price (yikes!) I brought home a picture instead:
This picture isn't very clear, but this is the biggest batter bowl that I have ever seen. It measured 16" from handle to spout. I think that would be a wonderful size, but I also wondered if I would even be able to lift it when full:
Here is a beautiful comb that someone bold enough could wear in their hair at just the right event:
And to wrap things up, I couldn't help but take a picture of this, even though I think it is just plain creepy. An alligator purse that has the alligator's head incorporated into it. I'll pass on carrying this around:
