What a great day!? I dearly love to go to the flea market.? It’s such a great experience.? The thrill of the hunt, the wonderfully quirky people, the seemingly endless rows of wonderful old stuff, add in?barbecue and the smell of Fall in the air and it’s a perfect day.
Mom, Preston, Baby James and I all hit the flea market today and boy did we find some really great stuff.? I don’t have pics yet, but may be able to put some up later.? However, at the rate that I blog the stuff may be in the store before I can get them up.? Let’s see what did we buy… we bought an old graphic wood sign with “Georgetown” on it, a couple of old rustic trunks, a really special shipping crate that will make a great coffee table, a super cool oak cabinet with lots of drawers – great for a side table or desk top, a funky truquoise stepback, a small treasure trove of odds and ends,?and the thing that I am most excited about… an old traveling pigeon coop.? It even has the paper id tags of the owner who shipped the crate.? Mom and I are going to get to work on Monday and should be able to bring in some of the new things by next Saturday.? Hopefully sooner.
On another note, I don’t think I’ve mentioned this yet, but Preston had her baby!? Yes, a new member of the Red Barn Mercantile family is born.? James was born on August 29 at 12:37 am.? He weighed in at 8 lbs 7 oz and was 21 inches long.? Mom and baby are gleefully at home enjoying each other tremendously.? James was a wonderful little antiquer today.? Three weeks old and already at it.? That’s my kind of guy!
Preston can’t wait to get back and we can’t wait to have her.? So, come by soon and say hello and congratulations to the new mommy and see all the fantastic new stuff we bought today.
Take care!? Amy
