I was feeling kind of restless yesterday. So I decided to drive to the antique mall in Jenks. It’s only about 4 miles from my apartment.
I hadn’t been shopping there since before the pandemic hit.
They don’t really have much of an air conditioning system in there, so it was hot. Especially wearing a mask.
But the place is quite big. I think it used to be a grocery store. There were maybe a dozen people in there including those who worked there.
Gathered on my table is what I came home with.
The cheapest item was $1 and the most expensive was $12.50. And that was the big vintage Ball jar. I’ve never had one this size and so I was willing to spend more than I normally do for it.
I had plans for everything I purchased when I decided to put them in my cart.
My clock that I bought there years ago has a broken face now. It was a Pottery Barn clock that I got there for a steal. So I felt lucky to come upon this other table clock.
I knew it worked because it had already had batteries in it and it showed the correct time. Plus it doesn’t make noise, which drives me nuts with clocks.
So in my cart it immediately went.
Here are the other purchases:
- Bottle: $4.75
- Bottle: $4.00
- Bottle: $4.00
- Cordial pair: $6.00
- Vintage can: $5.00
- Antique plate: $6.99
- Jar filled with wine corks: $2.50
- Small table: $6.00
- Vintage canning jar: $12.50
- Clear insulator: $1.00
- Staiger desk clock: $6.35
- Milk glass chicken: $9.60
I have vignettes in mind for all these purchases. And possibly a DIY for one or two. I will have to get to work and show you what I come up with.
