Antique show treasures

.

The husband and I were driving to the grocery store the other day when he saw a sign for an antique show at the fairgrounds. And when my husband sees a sign for antiques?

.

.

We spend the next 3 hours in drafty barns searching for treasure and endlessly gabbing with dealers.

.

.

This little cart was sweet.

The $850 price tag? Not so much.

.

.

Deer antler cribbage board? I’ll pass.

.

.

Vintage clown with gaping open mouth ready to swallow your soul?

Hell no!

But the other half couldn’t leave empty handed.

.

.

So we came home with an antique Boston milk crate with metal hinges and lock ..

.

.

And a bottle of pain expeller with original box and insert.

.

.

49% alcohol? That will cure what ails you.

.

.

I mean really, just look how happy this woman was.

  1. I had an old bottle like that at one point, don’t know what happened to it. Ingredients included 49% alcohol (Was there a limit on alcohol content?) and 25% marijuana oil. It was manufactured in 1877, or at least patented back then. Those were the days…

  2. Okay, confession…I love antique malls, shops, fairs, you name it I’ll stop. But just like you, I think some of this antique stuff is overpriced and not in the best condition. And some of the items are a bit on the creepy/weird side, like that clown.

  3. Although I see croquet mallets next to the clown, maybe it was actually the world’s first corn hole. Also, I think the key to the pain expeller is that you rub briskly, as the bottle instructs. If you rub it into your body languidly, it just won’t work. 😉
