Sunday Shopping

Yesterday was the last Sunday antique market at the local fairgrounds for 2014.  My first purchase of the morning brought sunshine to my day.  This late 19th century top has a couple double-pink fabric tears, but its been reproduced and repair shouldn't be a problem.  I think this top was meant to find me.  The dealer had the top for only one day - fate!
 
I found this beautiful pitcher.  I love serving iced-tea out of old pitchers
because the tea highlights the glass detail.  Be sure to let the brewed tea come to room temperature before pouring into the pitcher - learned the hard way on that one.   
These old linens will look great in the summer kitchen.  The top one is a towel and the bottom one looks like a table runner ($2 each and in perfect condition).
 

 I found a mulberry transferware plate to add to my collection. Fall is the perfect season to display mulberry dishes.


I also found a glass frog for flower arranging for $.50 and old perforated quilting stencils for $1.  A crisp autumn morning for a treasure hunt!  And the BEARS WON!!!
