In my last post I shared some of the photos from my weekend. Now, I want to share my special finds. We went to the Homespun Festival that happens in Rockmart, Ga every year. I have family from there and we used to hold our family reunions in the same park. I remember being a little girl and playing in the large creek that runs through the park. I had to go climb in and get my feet wet.
I have a hard time choosing items when I go to festivals. The problem is that I always want to see everything before I choose. Causing who I am with to walk back through the vendors after walking through once so I can buy what I want. The two items that I picked up were a mug by Payne Pottery and a copper bracelet. I love the color of the glaze on the mug. Gorgeous. My parents always buy pottery at festivals and I thought I would finally start my own collection. I would love more of the Payne pieces. They are local and I love supporting local business. I have wanted one of the colanders since I saw their booth last year. The copper bracelet is really nice and simple. I do not usually wear bracelets but I think I will wear this a lot.
I love Pyrex. However, apparently everyone else does too. There were a lot of full sets for sale that were expensive. After walking around and searching for that one not overpriced piece I found a Butterfly Gold Cinderella mixing bowl for $8. Then I found a cute vintage hanky. I love the idea of framing some of the vintage hankys and adding them to a gallery wall.
Then I found my chair! I love the shape of the chair. I desperately want to recover it with possibly cream linen. The floral is not my thing. Also I would like to strip the stain off and stain it a really dark brown. My Granny has been helping me look for one forever. The chair ended up being only $25. I can not wait until I have a chance to recover it.
What goodies have you found lately?
