Today Tony and I went antiquing at The Olde Factory in Hummelstown....we had our arms full before we even walked down the ramp - (they display items right as you walk in the door) ! Found - some much needed - zinc canning jar lids - (can you believe "someone" has two of our lids that they took off of the olde jars and put the jars behind the others in the cupboard???)
It was a good day shopping - lots of treasures were found! It rained and rained all the way to and from though - over 1 1/2 hours one way - but certainly worth the drive. The disappointment was, there are so many "crafty" booths.....imports....and that is disturbing when you are thinking it is an antique mall. NOW I love BOTH....and our store is filled with both - antiques and gifts - but I think if an antique mall wants to have craft booths then they should be altogether in one area. Just my opinion - (it won't keep me from shopping there but still disappointing to see so much of it) Rent is rent I suppose.
On page 137 of Flea Market Style magazine...is the picture of an old bedspring hanging on the wall and used to display photos....don't ask me why....but I want one. There was one "similiar" at the antique mall, but of course NFS (I wouldn't sell it either) !!! That one was even a bit cooler as it was made of very thin wire springs...really neat!
With these warmer days and the rain...the woods are starting to have hints of green and the red bud trees are ready to bloom. Spring....glorious spring!
