SLIM PICKINS...

Weekend before last was the final Extravaganza of the season at Renninger's.

I went with high hopes of finding lots of fab stuff to take to Texas for the Spring show at MARBURGER.

It was slim pickins folks...

But what I got is pretty darn good!


I love this industrial table! Maybe from a lab? The top is copper! I think this would be a great entry table, don't you? You could toss your keys in the little bowl at the front edge.


Who doesn't love these old clip racks and this one has fabulous old blue paint! And I can't ever pass up a tarnished silver ice bucket.


Can you picture this cutie in your kitchen or your bathroom? I can...


I've had several battery jars over the years but none as big as this one!


Love this black metal tray but this weather dial steals my heart! I've never seen one of these before have you?


This huge and heavy zinc bucket is to die for! Picture it full of forsythia branches...


And then there's always something for moi, right? I am madly in love with my frozen charlotte necklace!

These little bisque dolls were put inside the cakes for little girls but if they were broken then they were buried in the yard. That's the story given anyway. She's suspended from old rosary beads married to a vintage ladies watch. Love!!!

So that's the extent of it minus a dress form that needs a little tlc before she makes her debut.

I spent the day with my pal Euna which was super fun! We both used to be dealers at Renninger's in the old days. 

Stay tuned for more updates on the preparations for MARBURGER FARMS!

I was upset that I was unable to go until my mother told me the shopping wasn't all that good. She didn't even buy anthing. So while I'm sorry those who went were disapointed atleast I'm not upset about missing it.

Well , I'm just going to copy and paste what Kathleen said :)
Everything is perfect - I hope you find more in the next few weeks before the show

Those pickins may be slim but they are awesome! You've got a great eye Shelley...but we all knew that! lol
I love that weather dial too.. I was feeling really bad about missing Renningers as I had to go home for one week...THAT week...but now I feel just a tad better. I say just a tad...cuz you found some sweet things! I'm here until the end of March Shelley....still hoping to see the whites of your eyes...Lynn is arriving mid-March...maybe we will take a drive!

I'd say those slim pickins were wonderful! Love them all. Every single one.
At first I thought that was a drain hole in the table, but it's a bowl? I can see feeding my cat there, especially when my granddogs are here and wanting to gobble up her food. LOL

You found some mighty fine pickin's if you ask me. Why is it the cool fluff is always the hardest to come up with?
See you soon!
