Leaving Friday for Indiana!!

I am psyched because Friday I am leaving for Indiana for a whole week.  Yippee!!!  This means I will get to find some great stuff for the booth (and myself) for cheap!  We are going to stop on the way in Rolla, MO and go to the Rolla Antique Mall.  It's a nice mall with decent prices.  Last year I found a large ziplock bag full of Renwal dollhouse furniture for $15.00!  I also found a cute anthropomorphic salt & pepper set for $6.00.  We also went to and estate sale and I bought a vintage kitchen hutch for $80.00 and three boxes of Shiny Brite ornaments for ---wait for it---10 cents a box!  I can't wait to get back to my home State and get away from this heat here in Texas and be surrounded by corn fields and great places to junk.  I'm also looking forward to my Grandma's wonderful cooking.  She makes the best chicken and dumplin's.  I'm pulling back a trailer this time, so the sky's the limit on what I can bring home.  When I get back, I will post my finds.

Promised myself I wouldn't buy anything

I haven't blogged in awhile because I made a promise to myself that I would stop buying until I can:

*Put the items I have stocked up in my spare bedroom into my booth
*Sort through the boxes that are stacked up in my garage. 

It's been hard not going junking, but I don't want to end up on Hoarders!  Lol.
I'm getting ready to leave for vacation in a few weeks and going to Indiana, so I'm sure I will spring for a few things there.  Antiques are so much cheaper there, than in Texas.  If I have time, I may post pics of my personal collections at home.  I have some cool stuff accumulated after yesrs of junking.

Hope everyone is having a splendid summer!
