Scenes from a Mall!

We spent most of the day on Saturday at our cottage, mowing the grass, planting flowers, cleaning the garage, vacuuming, dusting and sweeping cobwebs. It makes me tired just thinking of it all! But on Sunday...we decided to take it easy and play!
My husband is a die-hard fisherman, and wanted to fish all day. Which was fine with me, because I knew I wanted to head over to the Pardeeville Antique Mall in Pardeeville, WI!

As always, my absolute favorite booth was that of Sadie N' Stella!! So many things in this booth spoke to me! Lots of ironstone, shabby, industrial, garden and sweet little packs of ephemera!

Lu really has a knack for display and uses every inch to it's full advantage! Tucking vintage goodies in every nook and cranny, box, drawer, and cubbie!

Lu is the owner and named her business after both her grandmothers, such a sweet idea and wonderful tribute to them! One of these times I'll take the opportunity to meet up with her and have some lunch and a nice visit!

She has such a great selection of transferware too --I love this pitcher!!

Great chippy paint planter basket!

Like I said, every nook and cranny!

This sweet little tiered basket came home with me! I now have it in my craft room with supplies and some sweet little collections!

One of my other favorite booths had lots of junky guy stuff and drawers full of old hardware!

I spent at least a half hour digging through this drawer full of hinges, hooks, knobs and escutcheons!! Needless to say I came away with some dirty fingers and a pile of awesome junk hardware for jewelry and craft projects!!! THIS WAS FUN!!

This is my haul!

Now for some time and ambition to use some of these great pieces!!

There were some other really cute booths that I liked. I thought this one had a fresh summery look!

This booth had lots of pretty shabbies and some great ideas for repurposing!

Loved the look of these eggs nested in a bed of shredded sheet music!

Simple vintage style!

My next post I'll share some of the other goodies that came home with me and what my plans are with them!

We had an awesome weekend! All our kids came to the cottage on Monday and we had a cookout and just hung out ~ perfect!!!

  9. Can't wait to see what you do with it all. Julie it looks like you had a good time. Same things I seen in bargaining market before two days. I did 't bought it because of bad colour.
