An antiquing stop in South Beloit, Illinois; two malls in same town. I browsed around in Angela’s Attic first and then right across the road was the Roscoe Antique Mall. How convenient!
Many years ago I bought my daughter Roxie a set of the Pyrex mixing bowls. Recently one has broken so I’m on the lookout for a replacement. I think that’s a great excuse to go antiquing! It turns out not all the sets are colored the same, who knew? Roxie’s set has the yellow large bowl and she is missing the second from the smallest bowl which in her set is red.
An Amish made covered basket; I have a collection of the Amish baskets started but I have found several of these at local thrift stores for a fraction of the antique mall’s prices. The very first Amish basket I ever bought was on one of my trips at a travel plaza stop. An Amish lady was there with her buggy and had set out a huge assortment of baskets and homemade jams. I have a real appreciation for anything handmade, whether it’s quilts, baskets, or jams I love it all!
There were very few quilts in these two malls however I think this one would make a wonderful leaders and enders project. I can just see this very scrappy with hundreds of different fabrics!
I came really close to getting this for my garden!
I love it when I come across something I’ve never seen before and this basket cart was a first for me. A great alternative to the wire shopping carts.
That was enough leg stretching and eye candy for me, it was then back on the road, and next stop home!
