~LET"S GO SHOPPING~

Hello Guys...I thought I would show you a few more things from Second Sunday Swap meet....It's really Called the" Sacramento Antique Faire" But I always call it Second Sunday so I can remember what day of the month it on ha ha!! Hey I suffer from "Old Timers" now...There are over 300 dealers each month from Sacramento, San Francisco,Berkeley,Napa Valley, NO.Cal.Valley, Los Angeles, Utah and Oregon...Now you ca see why so many people love it... Now I got this Brass bird cage just thought it would be cute in my Living Room....



Now Girls this Old wicker porch swing I just feel in love with...but someone had already bought it sighs.... The fountain was not a bad price $275.00 I seen them for more at the garden center without this much charm...



Also thought this would be cute out side...I could just see BJ, from "Sweet Nothings" doing a wonderful TT on this with all her Red...would it not just give it that POP...




And this wonderful Iron Urn is so Melissa From " Melissa's Heart and Home" would this not be pretty with all her wonderful Iron piece's she already has....






Can you ♥ a bike...Oh I just loved this sweet little thing...I could just picture this on my front porch with my big bike....



Now these just SCREAMED Shelia to me from " Note Songs" would she not a ball doing one of her great tablescapes with all these Darling Salt/peppers....








Hey Picklepoo did you find any you don't have ha ha!!


Now wouldn't Cass at " This Old House" just love these old toilets and sinks...








This I just thought was too cute...If I had room for it in my sun room I would have brought it home...Ha ha!!




Now this sweet Iron table and chairs with the watering can so reminded me of Glenda at " Tootsie Time" could you not see this on her great Stepping stone patio she just made...Yes Girls this Tootsie made her own patio with I think 58 bags of cement WOW!! If you haven't been to her blog...Please do yourself a Big favor and go see what she can do with her Greenhouse and yard...it's truly amazing...





Loved this "Morning Glory" RCA horn and Player...




My Granddaughter just loved this Robin egg Blue side board...It was only $195.00 not a bad price....




Loved all these sweet Pillows this gal had made from Vintages linen's...




All this Mercury Glass so reminded me of Lynne From "Lynne's Gifts from the Heart " And all these Cloche's are so her...



I could have used this for Marty "Cloche Party" the other day...was that not fun girls...I seen so many wonderful things you could do with Cloche's you ladies are just amazing what you came up with...THANKS Marty and everyone else for a fun day...


Now this little Chandy reminded me of something that Laurie from "Bargain Hunting with Laurie" would have and have Pearls stung on it... Or as her Hubby likes to call them the family Jewels ha ha!!



Now this Old Ship's Captain desk just SCREAMED My name...but will tell you that man that had this space was the all time rudest man I had ever met...It had no price on it...so me being the Antique shopper that I am asked him how much...He told me you are like the 50th person to ask me today...So listen real close because I am not going to repeat this again today...Right now it's $925.00 but if you come back at 2pm I will take bids for it...told him Sorry I didn't mean to bother him and didn't know I was at an auction...Wished him Luck and walked away...I mean come on this is a swap meet guy not "Butterfield" Auction house...All I can say is Thank God Daughter # 3 was not with me or that guy would have been wearing that desk where the "Sun don't Shine" ha ha!! She's my Daughter that came out "Swinging a purse and Chewing Gum"



Now this was the nicest Lady that had this space...I loved the way she had every thing displayed here...All her flowers were even real...Now I'm sure Sue from " A Stitch in Thyme" Would have loved some of these great things for her home and yard...Just Look Sue at that White Ironstone...are you doing your Happy Dance my friend....





These Old wicker chairs reminded me of Dot at " Picket's Place"




Now 20 years ago I would have loved to had this in my kitchen..I use to have my whole Kitchen done in Watermelons then....Gal wanted $100.00 for all ...not bad...





Now daughter # 2 loved this old truck...thought it would made a great coffee table...




Cute old stove...I could just picture this at "Ksarrasarra" With it's Marta Stewart's green color... This would look just wonderful in her home...


Now girls I would have loved to had this Old copper still just to sit in my kitchen as a conversation piece... Is is not too cool...Hey I told you before I march to a Guitar....ha ha!!


Saved the best for last...Found me a way to keep Len in tow....And NO I didn't buy it but should have after some of the jokes he have made about the "ole Ball and Chain...look it even has the key for it...

Well guys did you see anything you liked today.... I know I did....I just ♥ this place...always so much fun each month for me...


May all of you have a great day my friends....


Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

You know me so very very well....that table and chairs and the watering can are just the perfect thing! I wish I could find one here to bring home...but alas...must wait till I loot your house!

Shelia said...

Oh, Gloria! What fun you must have had! I would have punched that mean ole guy in the stomach right there and then! What a bum bum!
Oh, but how sweet of you to think of me when you saw the salt and peppers! I did see a few I used to have! I had so many at one time, but through the years and children this or that happened to them
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

marty39 said...

Oh what fun. I am with you, I really want that wicker swing. Wouldn't that just be the coolest thing in the whole world. Of course with the weather between 107 and 110 I'd have to wait until December to sit in it. lol I LOVE your little bird cage I can't wait to see what you do with it. What a fun place. Thanks for taking us shopping. Hugs, Marty

O Wow...what a great place to go shopping. I just LOVE those kind of places.
If I had to choose my favorites, I think I'd choose that blue chest your daughter liked and the mens swim club piece. But, everything was great...
Thanks for taking us along!!

Piney Rose said...

LOVED IT ALL, but my favorite was the blue sideboard - I would have bought that.

Hooray, Happy thanks for thinking of me. I was having so much fun shopping along with you, agreeing with you about the different pieces for everybody, and then you sweet heart, mentioned me and the stove! You just made my day. It's amazing how you know each of our styles so well.

The Stylish House said...

Gloria,
I have always enjoyed visiting your blog, but I think this is your best post yet!(from the one’s I have read so far.) Oh, my gosh this was such a fun voyeur shopping trip. I am kind of embarrassed all I posted about was one little old tilt top table! Hey my excuse is that it has been rainy up this way and that is what I am sticking with. Have a good one. Cathy

imjacobsmom said...

I absolutely found lots of things today! I'm with your granddaughter I love that "robin's egg blue" cabinet. I could see that cute watermelon table and chair out on the patio, too. What a fun day - Robyn

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Oh Gloria you are so funny- shopping with all your blogging friends in mind!! I wish we had shopping like this!! I am so having shopping withdrawal anxiety in this little town!!!

blessings

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Gloria, thank you for thinking about me when you were at Second Sun. You know, I always think about you on Second Sun,because I want to be there with you so badly! That little desk was so pretty, but I wouldn't have given that man a nickle for anything after he was so rude (think he was having a bad day!). So many pretty things to see. In thepicture with the cloches, that urn looked like it had legs and feet, and they were doing ballet or something??? Fun post! laurie

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Oh, Gloria! My little old magpie heart is all aflutter! I see lots of things I like. I love that white wicker swing! And I love that brass birdcage, being a magpie and all. It's shiny, and it's a home for birds. ;-)

I could smack that man for being rude to you. I think I would be in there with your daughter telling him to mind his manners!

I wish I could have gone to this. It looks like some wonderful things.

Thanks for sharing...

XO,

Sheila :-)

mbkatc230 said...

Loved the shopping trip Gloria! That sideboard is gorgeous! And I love the birdcage you found. And the fountain - just perfect. What a great place. Kathy

sue said...

G you are so precious to me, of course you are gonna have your name in lights!! I feel terrible leaving any names out, maybe I shoulda just worded it "the RMS angels"!! Robbin came by here and drooled all over your post, she wants to fly to Cali and buy that robins egg blue sideboard, its just her style!! She has a very similar green old stove too, I can't wait to show her kitchen collections!! Have a super day and week sweetie!! xxoxo

Jessica said...

I just love going shopping with you~ so many great ideas. Have a great day today!

Hugs~ J

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Looks like a fun day, Gloria!!

Madeline's Album said...

Loved this post. The toilet with the water tank above it with the pull chain brought back memories of when I was a child we had one and until I saw the one you posted I had forgotten all about it. Everything you posted pictures of were just great. Have a good day.

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Good morning, Gloria! I love your posts on the Antique show you go to each month...such interesting and wonderful things that you see! I could not believe that rude man! It is just not necessary to act like that! I wish I lived closer to it....but I settled for a few interesting garage sales this weekend...stop by and see what I found.
~Patti

Deb said...

Hi Gloria,

Did you get your seeds?

Deb

Justine said...

But did you BUY anything? OMG, Shelia and Dot would have squealed like sissy girls over all those S&P shakers! Holy cow, what a collection that vendor has!

I really loved that old toilet. I know, weird thing for me to pick, but I did love it

Justine :o )

Donna Marie said...

Gloria!!!! Holy cow!!!! I fell in love with every pic! I would have been acting like a kid in a candy shop! I loved the salt & pepper shakers and the White Ironstone and the pretty class cake plate that was on the watermelon table!

Thanks for sharing!

xoxoxoxo

Melissa Miller said...

Gloria you find the coolest stuff! Loved this shopping trip.
Thanks for taking us along.

Have a wonderful week my friend.
~Melissa :)

Betty said...

Well I sure did my share of ooooh and aahs on this post. Strange thing I think the item I might have wanted the most was the toilet but it sure wouldn't fit in my bathroom which is a converted back porch, it would have gone through the roof. I liked the watermelon table too.
Hope all is well with you.

Lynette said...

Hi Gloria - what a lovely trip and all the things were gorg!!

I've missed everyone and finally think I can start blogging again!!

Glad to see you're doing well and haven't missed a beat!!

Lori E said...

What a doofus that man was. Apparently he didn't realize who he was dealing with and how important you are.
Glad you walked on by. You sure have a good eye for the cool items. Very kind of you to include your friends in your post.

mishebe said...
