then we went to this little town in iowa, which i've been before....and this place was the reason for the trip. last time i went, there was this huge warehouse of a store that was just full of furniture...and i mean full! it was all stacked on top of each other at least 3 or 4 high. heaven. so i called the man that owned it to see make sure he was open on saturday...he said that he was at the fairgrounds having a sale instead..assured me it was worth my while to go! well, we got there and let me tell you, it wasn't worth my while. i felt like i was in the twilight zone or something when we walked in...you meet some VERY interesting people when you're out hunting around for things! i ended up buying a couple things from him....and he really wanted to sell me more...so he told me about another store he had in town. told us he'd take us there right then so we could look around. okay...my curiosity got me and we went. well, this place wasn't much better than his little fairground sale...but i did find some cool accessories there...here's what i found in his shop...
|amazing midcentury lamp! the finish is a pale goldenrod with bright gold accents|
|another great midcentury lamp! cream and gold speckled with a gorgeous dark bronze strip around the middle|
|and of course an old vintage suitcase....to add to my collection!|
i scored a few larger pieces of furniture at another place....here they are...
|this old crusty chippy door....the colors don't show up great, but its a dark gold as a layer, then a grey/lavender layer and then the mint green on top...beautiful!!|
|a beautiful side table|
|a vintage dresser on wheels|
