This weeks 2nd Time Around pics will be from New York City! In this photo, my sister is pulling a small travel bag that she rescued from the trash outside a resturant near our hotel. We were going to have to buy another suitcase just for our purchases, and this one, although a little beat up, served the purpose well! My sister is not into antique and flea market shopping like I am, but both she and my nephew were good enough sports to let me browse a couple of the stores that we ran across. I snapped a few pics of things I liked to share. These vintage dishes were marked 80 dollars for the set, but the store was having a 25% off sale. I didn't think that was too bad of a price! This oak mirror on an easel was found in a little shop in Greenwich village. I'm not sure of the price. There is something about tiger oak that always attracts my attention!
This oak bookcase was in the same store. I looked but didn't see a price on it either. It reminds me on an oak secretary that I bought several years ago.
I did see the price on this little table which had been stripped and ready to finish or paint. It was $225.00 It reminds me alot of the one I paid $5.00 for at a garage sale here. LOL
And finally, here is a set of bookends that I really liked. Didn't get the price on those either!
You may be wondering if I bought anything. I did buy some purses on Canal Street and the scarf in my Pink Saturday post from the thrift store. Even though I didn't buy much, I always love shopping the antique and thrift stores!
Thanks for stopping by! Please help spread the word about 2nd Time Around Tuesday!
