Round Top Madness! Part 2

So now the post that you have all been waiting for - the goodies!

My first purchase of the day I do not have a photo of because it's in the sink waiting to be washed, but I was able to get an awesome deal on a Fire King Jadite mixing bowl! It's the same style as this one seen here on Etsy. I'm really excited, I love jadite. When I get a bigger kitchen I'm hoping to get a whole set of them in different sizes to use for my everyday baking.

Next I hit the Bakelite shop while the boys were off looking for camera parts. Here I purchased one bangle and two broaches.
Green carved bangle and AMAZING pineapple broach.

I could not resist this tropical wonder, I can't wait to wear it out!

And another photo of the great anchor I found.
 After chatting for a while with the Bakelite lady, I wandered down to find one of the vintage fabric stores that had an amazing collection of feedsacks. I was good and only purchased two that I absolutely love for less than what I would have paid if they had come up on eBay which made me really happy. This red and blue cactus feedsack below is absolutely outstanding. The color is perfect, I don't know any other way to describe it AND it is still in feedsack form. I think this is one that I will keep in the collection rather than use as a project it's so beautiful.
I do love my southwestern prints....
 The other feedsack I purchased was the cutest novelty print I've seen in a while. It's not still in the sack form but it will be great for a project. I'm thinking it would make a gorgeous puffed sleeved blouse from Miss Kim....
Isn't this adorable?
 Those were my "big" purchases for the day, my husband on the other hand found all sorts of goodies. He got a new vintage leather camera bag (which I don't have a photo of) that's got some great leather tooling with a southwestern theme. He also purchased two large ceramic crocks, a 1960's Navy wool coat, and this amazing photo album that he wants to use for some form of art project, which means I get dibs on all the awesome photos! This is filled with vintage photos from vacations that appear to be from the early to mid 1950's. I'm planning on scanning some of these in, there are some great photos of the Redwood National Forrest in here.
 Last but not least, we also purchased a pair of these chairs seen below. They're absolutely gorgeous. We've been needing two extra kitchen chairs for some time as we have only had 3 that function so it makes for some awkward situations when guests are over. These we got for a great deal, $50 below the asking price.
Overall we had a great time and I cannot wait to go back next year! Hopefully I'll take more photos of the festivities rather than just running around and looking at things (even though that was lots of fun...)


  1. oh boy oh boy oh boy...the pineapple = so cool. I'm also in LOVE with that seal print feedsack. Great finds!!

  2. All great stuff but the bakelite and the feedsack drool....

  3. Wow what amazing stuff! I love the pineapple brooch so lovely. My big love is the feedsack though, damn would I love to go somewhere that had a selection of this fabric!
