SHaBBy SHoPPing Spree ~ Friday thru Sunday!*!*!

Is is possible to be ~ SHoPPed-Out?!?!?
ChiPPy!-SHaBByOn-The-Hunt...  
Backroads of Wisconsin, Graylake Flea,
 Elkhorn Flea

I soooo enjoy BEING ON-THE-HUNT!*!*!
However, I have a very strict criteria...
Mostly being that my SHaBBies are ViNtaGe,
 and if they're not, they need to have acquired a
N*A*T*U*R*A*L*Y Aged PaTiNa, which
Yields a One-Of-A-Kind
ViNtaGe F*I*N*D...




Does this Dealer know how to pack or what!!!
Over-Flowing Truck & Trailer...



With Fall just around the corner,
my eye is drawn "some" darker colors with hints of rust...
LoVEd this cabinet ~ but the price point was too high...
It sold early-on, as I saw it going out the gate on my way to the van...




I LoVe Chandelier B*L*I*N*G 
Hanging OUTSIDE at the Flea...
and Kathy Most Certainly has it!*!*!




Cottage Decor
Shabby-Painted Seating with Floral Cushions...
With a cool over-cast day, and Fall clicking at our heels, I'm
not sure if this dealer sold these or not...  In California those
would have been gone in a heart-beat!!!








This "Deer Head" 
**Almost went home with me**




FaB Patina on the Metal Scoop/Dish...








Great Form... & AwEsoMe Look
"Over-Rules" what I call a **Fake SHaBBy**
My guess is that they probably SOLD Right Away...




Double-WashTubs 
Abounded this weekend
and they were ALL flying out the door!!!
