Del Mar Antique Show and something came in the mail for me :D

By | January 22, 2012

Today Travis and I went to the Del Mar Antique Show.  I was really excited about it.  I was sure we were going to find a ton of Flow Blue and lots of hobnail and Fenton.  Waaaaaaa, I was so wrong.  There were a couple of pieces of overpriced Flow Blue.  Prices aside, none of the Flow Blue we found impressed us.  As for the milk glass, nobody brought any.  I had some birthday money and I was ready to SHOP.  I really wanted a white hobnail punch bowl.  No luck there.  I did end up picking up a nice hobnail cruet and mustard jar.  I paid $40 for both including tax.  I don’t think it was a steal but I don’t feel ripped off either.  I guess what really matters is that I like it.

When I got home from the show I had a package waiting for me at my house.  Another birthday gift had arrived.  Thank you Mitra!!!!  I love it!
