On the drive up, we stopped in at an antique market. I enjoyed myself immensely, while my husband paced around and tried to be patient, and I tried to ignore that he was so I could continue to enjoy myself. I'm sorry there are no photos to show you, but the market had a "no camera" policy -- which is a shame, because there was so much fun stuff to see there, all beautifully displayed.
I have a real love of antique and vintage sewing notions, and I saw a lot of that at this market. I especially loved a pincushion I saw: a tiny round pillow with a metal bird on top of it. The bird opened on top to reveal that it was a thimble holder; there were two pearlized egg-topped pins in the pincushion. It was enchanting, but at $139, I had to leave it behind!
my display of vintage sewing notions. I noticed that many of the same items in my display were on sale at this market, and I estimated that my own little collection was worth about $600 at those prices!
Vera website, it dates back to the 1960s (like me!)
