A Weekend's Worth of ChiPPy-SHaBBy SHoPPing!*!*!


With My Home SaLe now behind me...
It was time to replenish
My ChiPPy-SHaBBy S*T*A*S*H!*!*!

I like to be LOADED WITH FRESH STOCK
for my ChiPPy-SHaBBy SHoPPers
when the Season Begins!!!


 *The BeSt Day*
It's been quite a while since I've ventured out for the entire day and
 "Nearly" filled the van with one great find after another!!!!!!!



ON-THE-ROAD early Friday Morning...
It was such a joy to be "Out & About" on a warm sunny day!!!
All the small towns in Illinois were aglow with Spring Blossoms!!! 

1st Stop - A Small Vintage Garden Show, in the quaint town
 of Sycamore, Illinois...
Such a lovely setting for this small event held at Blumen Gardens...
This Show most definitely "cycles"...  Some years I find shabbies,
 other years I walk away empty-handed...
 
 


 BeSt-Ever, Rusty... Crusty... Display Shelf!*!*!
OMG!!!  Netted at the Garden Show,
A definite **Keeper-Find** FOR NOW!!!
Just FaB for a Bathroom!!!
  Rolled -or- Stacked with Towels &
Jars of Bath Salts Etc.  

PeRfeCtLy ChiPPy-SHaBBy PaTiNa!!!
I'll be "Sealing" this FAB natural time-worn patina
 with a coat of clear urethane,
 before I use it in the bathroom...



The rest of the day was spent meandering some back roads of Illinois, hitting a couple BARN SALES,  - and then visiting some Small Shops, & Antique Stores...
 NO, I didn't buy this porch canopy,
but thought it was fun to look at!!!




 These FaB ViNtaGe Birdies 
~**WON-MY-HEART**~
Netted at Winfield Antique Store
**KEEPER-FINDS**



Saturday... Sunday...
Frog Husband and I Shopped MICHIGAN
Sunday was the ALLEGAN FLEA MARKET'S 
SEASON OPENER!!!
Just AwEsoMe Weather!*!*!



 I never realized HOW MUCH I BOUGHT UNTIL
I UN-LOADED THE VAN!*!*!
I didn't buy a lot of "LARGE ITEMS"
so initially my S*T*A*S*H was deceiving...



The *KeePeR-FiNd* List Is Growing!!!
I guess I was tired, & didn't realize how many ~*FaB SHaBBies*~
I actually netted either!!!  This is the most I'm keeping in a long time!!!



Lots of work ahead of me...
Cleaning... Repairing... Tagging...
