You never know what you're going to get.
Surely, I did not expect to come across an embellished Pee Wee Herman sweater....
|I told Alex we had to go on a date because I got a HOT outfit to wear :)|
Or a teddy bear that had a creepy resemblance to my dog Rocco....
Or a crazy lady blending in with a bunch of fake heads...
Yes, my weekend antiquing adventure in Buffalo, MN was certainly a whole different experience than my other adventures...Or I was just being a weirdo that day?
Thankfully I wasn't the only one :) My friends Dean and Andrew went along with me on this shopping adventure. Andrew also found a hot new wardrobe addition when he laid eyes on this stylish leopard/ zebra print sequin vest with beaded fringe!
I still thought my Pee Wee sweater was way cooler though :)
Now, I didn't really take home any of the fun weird stuff because I did find some great stuff! Check out this (faux) gold bow necklace that was just $2.00!
I also got this vintage wool sweater from WWI! I was so intrigued when I read the tag and there was even pants and a jacket that went with the whole uniform. I was happy just taking the sweater, it was cute and made of thick warm wool. I was able to bargain it for just $15.00!
The last item was this vintage camp chair for just $10.00!
It had a functional back rest that flipped up. I thought that feature was cool along with the raw/ distressed wood and....
... metal brackets. The little stool had so much interest in the little details. I am of course going to do a little DIY treatment on it starting with a new fabric seat but I have so many fun ideas!
More to come with this one once I start working on it!
On our way back we even got to stop at a cute pumpkin patch full of fancy pumpkins!
Sadly, I didn't get a picture of Dean being weird so here is our 'normal' photo. I did tell him to get up by the steering wheel so I could lay under the tire as our weird photo but there were too many families nearby :)
One thing I got that I didn't want to take home from the trip- my first speeding ticket... EVER!
Yep, a $169.14 citation really killed the mood :(
Like I said, you never know what you are going to get when you go antiquing! The ticket was a damper but it was a totally fun day aside from that. I highly recommend the Buffalo Nickel Antique Mall, Annie's Attic, and Waldon Woods Antiques for anyone making a trip for some good antique/junking finds! Just make sure you obey the speed limit :)
What do you think of my goodies?
Should I have purchased the Pee Wee sweater???
