Treasure Hunting

Saturday was a cold day, and though we weren't in the mood to go out in it, we were in the mood to do something. Jason had suggested we take a trip to  Jamie's Flea Market in South Amherst. It was full of everything vintage and antique and so much more.

The thing I love about flea markets is that the stuff inside practically beckons you to hold it in your hands and explore it up close. It is so exciting to find so many vintage treasures all in one place. Since there were so many breakable items Jason and I took turns hanging out with Lily while one of us would go inside and check everything out. Great Teamwork on our part, we didn't miss a thing.

This trip we were hoping to find a few old nintendo games to add to Jasons' collection, a Van Morrison record, and a silver platter for my next project, but we only managed to make out with a sweet frock for Lily and a circa 1930 "Pokey Puppy" photo. Oh and Jason did managed to find a saturn game that he has been looking for, for a very reasonable price.

On our way home we stopped at a few different consignment shops, which were all very nice. We ended up coming home with a very beautiful Hearthside Classics Stoneware plate set and a bread box.

To end our day of treasure hunting we met up with Jason's parents at the California Pizza Kitchen (if you haven't had there club pizza yet, you are definetley missing out on pure goodness.) enjoyed a wonderful dinner, and headed back to their house where we relaxed and watched Lily run off all of her pent up energy from the day.

I would say we had a very successful Saturday.

Here is a peak at some of the things that we saw:
