Friday Finds

We had business in Paragould, AR Friday,
so to mix a little pleasure with business,
we stopped at five antique malls, one thrift store,
and three yards sales.

Warmer weather is here. . . .
and the buys are out there!

Seemed as if I was running into lots of buys on
Farmhouse/Cottage style dishes, 
Ironstone platters, vintage clothing, 
and a wicker piece or two.
Fine with me. . . .
I love them all

 Here's just a few of our finds. . . .
A pristine early 1900s girl's smock in linen came home with me. . .
as did vintage books, hankies, old lace and the bottom half of a lantern.

Two really cute pink china and ceramic potties,
pink baby booties, and a beautiful little Hull vase.
I already have one of these vases and love it. 

Ironstone and china platters seemed to jump into my hands all day long. . . .

I did find a few practical items to tote home. . . .
dish pans and more buckets--
just can't seem to get enough of those either.
John found the vintage camera for 1.99. . . .
I found two bags of memorabilia for 1.00

We saw lots of bargains all day--
so tempting to buy. . . .but I resisted and remained true
to the items I needed. 

Interested in testing your luck in Paragould?
Just follow AR Hwy 412 East.
It's also called East Kingshighway inside city limits.
You'll find flea markets and antique malls all along the road.
A few are only open Thurs-Sat, but you'll still have plenty of shopping available.

There's one place you shouldn't miss. . . .
Amazing Things at 215 E. Kingshighway (412), 870-236-8222
Always a treat. . . .
Others include: Bucca John's, 412 Flea Market, Antique Treasures.
If you venture downtown, you'll find even more interesting places to visit, 
including an Abilities Unlimited Thrift Store.
Most weekends, there's yard sales galore!
Sometimes an auction or two.
We simply ask the locals what's happening around town.
But, watch out if you do the same--
they might treat you like family and tell you a story or two!
