Crystal Day Nov. 3, 2007

Today was a wonderful day. The yard saling was sparse, but great finds were to be found. Started out at the usual time and the first sale turned out to be the greatest of the day. I purchased a crystel chandaleir that was the perfect match to the one I already had in my dining room, only $20. What a great find! I bought a carnival glass punch bowl with all the cups at the same sale. I plan on selling it at the Avon Grove Sale on Dec. 1. What a great find for the perfect Holiday Party.

Connie and I also stopped by a new Antique Store, called Wayside Antiques, that is in side of a mushroom house. Turns out the owner is one of my friend's son. Great finds at a wonderful price. Drew DiCarlo Jr, the owner, offered Connie and I a wonderful consignment deal; We are going to think about it. Can't tell you how nice it was to find a young soul on the same page as us.

Sunday I spent all day getting ready for the Avon Grove Sale. I did not realize all the little projects would turn into a all day event. But it is amazing what a little bit of glue and spraypaint can do! I am looking forward to this sale.
I hope others will apreciate my finds and shabby chic approach.
