The Hair of the Dog that Bit Us {or, thrifting and antiquing again}

As if the ridge weren't enough, we met Donna the next day at Riverfront Antique Mall in North Augusta, SC. It's near Augusta, GA.

But, before we did that, we ran into an estate sale and had to see what they had. These are the things that we "needed":

A wooden mortar, no pestle included.
An old Scrabble Game — now complete!
Break-away stirrups for our niece to use.
Finally, it was off to meet Donna at the Riverfront Antiques Mall where she has two booths. They were the most exciting booths, as far as I was concerned!

Where Donna has her booths

We purchased a few things from her booth and around the mall:

Sewing machine part and my favorite number
A frozen Charlotte doll discarded long ago
I love these magazines but don't purchase them new because of the high price. I got all Donna had!

(About 1" high.) I will add this to my tiny perfume bottle collection.
We also purchased three white chenille bedspreads.

At the end of this visit, it was time to say goodbye to Donna, but before we left, she presented us with gift bags stuffed full of goodies. They were things I would have chosen for myself!

Here are the gift bags:

Katie's is on the right, and the other is mine.

Thank you, Donna, for making our visit extra special!

***Breaking news: We have the flu. We got a flu shot. No fair.*** 

Partying with the best of' 'em at:
Talk of the Town

From Aiken to North Augusta ... and everything in between...


  1. Flu = Bah Humbug!

    It is so nice to revisit this trip. Thank you Donna for all you have done for/with us!

  2. I thought I'd join you for awhile with this flu thing so you wouldn't feel so all alone, but I'm pretty much over it by now. It can go away, and I wouldn't miss it. Cough, snort, wheeze.

  3. Sorry about the flu, hope you're well. Three white chenille bedspreads? I'd be in heaven! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home

    1. Thank you for the Vintage Charm party. I love sharing my finds and seeing what others are doing.

  4. It's always so fun seeing what people find. I love going to estate sales! Hope you feel better soon. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    1. I love seeing what others find, too. In my small town, there aren't many estate sale offerings, so I'm thrilled to go when I find one. This wasn't too interesting, but we managed to find a few things. The stirrups were a surprise! Thank you for having me on SYC!

  5. What fun finds! Donna gave you both bags of great goodies!


    1. Donna certainly spoils us! Thank you for stopping by!
