I headed for Summerville, SC, just outside Charleston.
While flying the old coffin carrier down Hwy. 61, I passed through Blackville with a sign pointing to a church sale.
Well, I could not resist.
A very worn, but graphic red/blue quilt.
A stack of pillows and hearts made from cutter quilts.
Another primitive green child's chair. (I do love primitive green children!)
Underneath that pile is an old wooden ironing board.
Old music textbooks, Scrabble (complete), aluminum colander, wire baskets, wrought iron basket, and a book in Swedish.
Swedish book page art, anyone?
Two floral prints and a blue train case.
The worker at the sale threw in the paper roses and metal basket.
At Goodwill I bought another picnic basket.
A small silver metal tea set.
A John Romain creel basket purse.
In the late 1960's, every girl wanted a John Romain pocketbook.
At the Community Thrift on Dorchester Road, I found another huge frame. a red basket super cheap, and a metal-lined wall basket.
You will be seeing more about this Bassett night stand in a later post - I am working on it now.
It has a secret.
At Vintage South I finally decided what I wanted the most.
A stack of rusty metal flashing.
A display of stamped round tags.
I have an idea for these - just have to find the time to do it.
A stack of rusty green drawers.
(Notice my restraint about not mentioning the joke here.)
A group of black wooden letters of different sizes.
I could have bought a ton more, but I will definitely return to this wonderful place.
If you are a fan of those TV salvage shows, this is the place to shop.
Visit the Vintage South website HERE.
An antique mall only open for a few months - Antiques & Artisans Village on Old Trolley Road.
The booths were artfully arranged and chocked full of wonderful items.
I bought the two Communion pictures of the same girl.
And I found two small cheese boxes.
I use them in the kitchen for storing small items.
Visit Antiques & Artisans Village at the web- site HERE.
So it seems I posted my last week's Friday Finds and promptly disappeared.
I have been away from the computer doing yard work which I love more than junk.
Yes, really I do.
More about the Low Country Crawl tomorrow.
