Mother Daughter Thrifting Field Trip- Day One

Okay, I said I would keep you updated from the road, but there were several incidents along the way!  First, I forgot my camera, so the only trip photos I have were taken with my iphone. 

Second, halfway through the first day, I lost my keys in an antique mall.  A very large antique mall!  So after an hour of looking for them, with the store staff and several very helpful strangers assisting, I made the call.  My husband was supposed to be enjoying a few days to himself, but I really messed that up for him.  I called and told him my dilemma.  Saturday afternoon = no Nissan dealership open in the area; and our hotel reservation an hour farther.  So, an hour and ten minutes later, he arrived with another car key.  Poor man.  I really hated to have him drive almost two and a half hours, but there was no other option.  I'll probably never live that one down!

By the time we got back on the road, it was 4:30.  My goofy self had wasted over two hours of shopping time, so I headed straight for the hotel, since everything we wanted to see closed at 5.  Here are a few pics of some good stuff I saw.

The chalkware mafia.  This is the scariest group of chalkware I've ever seen at one time!

The only two pleasant chalkware mafia members.  Although the one on the left looks like he's being disciplined!

As soon as I take some pics of the things I bought, I will post them.  I did get some cute stuff.


  1. Oh no, lost your keys! What a nightmare. Glad you got going again but I hate missing shopping time. Looking forward to more photos!

  2. I'm with you on the key-losing;)I lose everyDERNthing and it must run in the family bc my niece has locked her keys in the car twice here at my house in the last 3 months.But,at least you know he'll come when you need him.Maybe you should give Mom a set of keys?LOL
