I've been reading blogs since about 2008. For a few of those years I've enjoyed reading a blog written by a gal who lives in Westminster, MD. I live in Maryland too! In fact, only about an hour away from Westminster!!
These past few years I've read about the "tag sales" they have several times a year...but I've never been able to make it to one until this past Saturday. Bill and I (and Katie, Mandy, Mark, Charlotte, and Lulu) decided to head out (in the rain...in our two vehicle caravan) to Westminster for lunch (Charlotte chose Arby's) and a visit to Elizabeth and Co.
Saturday was the third day of the sale, and a lot of the things we admired in the photos on the blog were already gone, but I still found a few fun treasures! (Katie and Mandy did too!)
We've been looking for the perfect table to go next to Bill's chair, and we found it there!!
Even though I forgot to measure before we left home...the table was a perfect fit.
Now I just need to fill those shelves up!
I found some little treasures too. I love this distressed black box; and the white jar,
and the pair of silver napkin rings were bargains at $1.00 each.
I'll be creating something with each of them.
I also picked up this old sugar bowl, and "cherry" serving bowl.
I love the finishes on these two pieces. Little cracks and lines,
some yellowed discoloration, worn and loved.
At $5.00 each, they both found homes with me.
I'm so glad I finally got to visit Elizabeth and Co. (Katie and Mandy are too....they other four, well, Charlotte enjoyed the cookie she got there!) An hour ride there was worth it!* The next "tag sale" is in May...sure hope we can go again!
*Cathy and Missy thought 14 hours each way was worth it!
