061513 Date Day - Antiquing in Ohio!
We needed a little road trip, so we headed south
to Springfield, Ohio, for the Springfield Antique Show & Flea Market.
The show was only about 1/3 as big as prior years :~(
Close by is Heart of Ohio Antiques - 8 buildings all joined together. It never disappoints.
Although time didn't permit, another terrific place within just a few miles:
Springfield Antiques & Collectibles with over 450 dealers.
You can make a wonderful day of antiquing in Springfield!
Lunch was delicious barbeque at Rudy's Smokehouse - oh, my...
I brought home a few little goodies: an old packet of needles with a great graphic rocket & an old card of hooks & eyes - both slated for scrapbook page embellishments; a new but distressed doorknob escutcheon for a future altered project; a whimsical wooden bolt, and a lovely little charm bracelet (my latest collection item.) I haven't decided which of the charms will stay or go...
This little guy came home to join my mom's collection of Pen Delfen figurines.
Greg found some more items for his ordnance collection. The larger is 7 inches tall!
But these were the big score of the day. The box is 2 layers deep with
vintage blocks to add to the grandbaby toy stash - makes me happy.
And these appear to be the original "legos" - they latch together for building tall towers.
It's always good company when we can get away together.
