Warrenton Antique Days

Just as I promised.
Here is the beginning of my journey to
Warrenton Antique Days.
The weather didn't look like it would hold out
but it wasn't to bad.
We managed to make it to a few
great tents and here is the first
of a great and successfull shopping day.
Let me start with one of the most perishes spots in Warrenton
{Second Hand Charm
Charlene Abbott,Owner
The owner of this sweet spot is Charlene Abbett and she has to be one of the most talented artisan's in the pasture this year. She had a great set up and there was something for everyone.
Vintage Greeting Cards framed in pastale frames

Fabulous handcrafted bags elaborately transformed with vitage fabrics, trims of old lace, looped ribbon and adorn with vintage jewels
I don't care how long these sweet carpi's
have been around they never go out of style
thanks to the vintage fabric

Bedroom Project

The weekend that I had my garage sale I got this dresser from my neighbor for free. She was trying to make room in her garage and I needed a dresser. I looked at Ikea and found a nice dresser for about 300.00. The only thing was I didn't have 300.00. So this was a very good deal for me.

You can bearly see the glass knob in this picture

I found this one at Good Will for 24.00
I forgot to take a before picture but it was a dark yellow with flowers on the draws
I love the way it turned out
