My BFF Grapes and I went up to see the boys - oops I meant bring the boys stuff that they forgot for college - like a rug for their floor, hangers, cables, more towels etc etc etc. We met them at 10:00 am for breakfast, went to their room to bring up stuff, went shopping for more stuff and then finally - with more hugs and kisses - left to drive home. The deal was that we would scoot up there really fast, and then meander home stopping at antique stores etc. Well...by the time we really got on the road it was getting late so we made directly for a store that I know of in Peterborough and have always liked. Turns out that store has moved to Hudson, NY but there was another one that had some goodies and I scored pretty good!
The woman who owns the store wraps stuff in paper and twine which I love of course.
Inside this package was this lovely little miniature hand form, it's only about 8 inches high. It'll go downstairs to live with my bigger hand forms.
And Buttons - did she ever have lovely buttons! Look at these - aren't they wonderful? 50cents each....
And these are buttons also - so unique!
These pearl buttons were about 10 cents each - I took all I could.
Knitted buttons, in pink and ecru. And yes, tiny little porcelain bowls that are so cute I couldn't resist.
Miniature pulleys - which I have no idea what I am going to do with these but I loved them. All rusty and tough looking.
I scored big time, both in seeing the kids and in getting goodies to play with. Can't you just see those pearl buttons on a knitted sweater?
