Lookie, Lookie What I Got

Last Saturday Jimmy, Katie, and I went to a flea market in Fayetteville. We had been told that it was a good place to go. So NOT true. There were several rows of tables where people were selling outside and then there were booths inside. We looked around outside and then inside. Alot of the booths were closed and some of them I wouldn't even waste my time going in. But we came to one that looked interesting. We went in and looked around. And I noticed Jimmy heading toward the corner. There was the cabinet that I have been wanting for our kitchen since our vacation to the Amish country in Pennsylvania. We actually found one at an antique shop while we were there for $100.00 but in order to bring it home we would have had to leave the girls in PA. Since then I have been on the lookout for one. As we were leaving Saturday morning headed to Fayetteville. I jokingly said, "Wouldn't it be nice if we could find a cabinet for $25.00?" We found it but not for $25.00.



The knobs on it match our Marmalade dishes so I knew it was for me. See the pink sticker in the corner? It says $75.00. Jimmy asked the lady if she would take any less than $75.00 and she said, "$60." He said, "What about $50.00?" She called her husband over and asked him and he said, "Yes." Oh, I was a happy girl! We carried it out to the truck and brought it home. After 3 coats of paint and some new hardware......



Well, what do ya think? You see why I am a happy girl? I just put some things in it until I can find the perfect stuff for it. Now I have an excuse to go shopping. HeHe! Hope ya'll have a good evening.

Blessings,
