Yesterday the room mate & I took advantage of the lovely weather to go by an antique mall we always forget about. We were on the hunt for props/displays for our fair tables in the future & we just plain old love to go antiquing. I am so happy that I have friends & a boyfriend who are totally into digging around thrift stores, flea markets, antique stores, etc. It's so great to have nothing to do & decide to roll up on a cool place with a little bit of spare change.
Since Zach always finds me cool things I knew I had to find him a few nifty things while I was out. You'll see this in his guest post thrift tip later this month, but he collects old bottles of poison, old radios/electronics, & books. Since I don't know anything about electronics or what books he's really on the hunt for I decided to keep my eye out for some interesting bottles. I found two bottles for him: one of holy water & one that was filled with what we think is ammonia and is recommended for those who have fainted. They are pretty nifty. I'll be sure to take a better picture because I know he'll want to include them in is Thrift Tip post!

Katie found two great shelves for her pottery & I found a great shutter display for jewelry. I am really excited about attempting to do this handmade, self employed journey here. I've been working on a press kit, I just made up my About page on etsy, added a new banner to my artist website...but there always is something more to do. I think I need to keep this post in mind when thinking about balance. I seem to always be getting swept up in it which can sometimes be a bad thing!
Today we'll be setting up separate booths for the Second Sundays Fair in Williamsburg & I am excited :) :)
After we went antiquing we headed over to JoAnn's to pick up some more necklace displays & then grabbed some yummy frozen yogurt at sweet frog.
And for good measure, here's the sign as we left the antique mall, good old southern charm:
What did you do this weekend?
