|Our snowy drive along the frozen Scioto River, January 22, 2011.|
Yesterday, we braved the single digit temps, hopped aboard the trusty old green Land Rover and took the scenic route along the frozen Scioto River on a snowy drive to the Scott Antique Market. Hundreds of vendors set up their booths at the Franklin County Fair Grounds once a month, from November through March. They happen to have a show in Atlanta, as well, for those of you who live in that southern neck of the woods. I thoroughly enjoyed pulling my little red two-wheel vinyl cart on a long slow meander in search of hidden treasure. I pride myself on having learned the art of dickering. It certainly adds to the trill of the experience. This month, I came home with a cart load of loot and only spent twenty bucks. I call it loot, since it was such a steal. Twenty. Can you believe it?
The winter white loot consists of a pair of vintage silverplate candlesticks $5,
chunky cream ceramic candlesticks $1 each,
(one can never have too many candlesticks)
a ceramic industrial glove mold $8 and a white ironstone pitcher $5.
It all looks very much at home at the manor, don't you think?
