Latest Finds From the Treasure Trail
It’s been so long since my Mom and I have had the chance to spend the day together shopping and catch up. Since my Dad’s retirement last June they’ve been spending their time rehabbing my childhood home Loblolly Manor, on fun vacations and kissing the grandbabies. Being able to spend the entire day with her, just the two of us, was a gift we didn’t waste. We hit estate sales, made the junkin loop, packed both cars full of goodies and ate a new restaurant. I didn’t take pictures of everything we bought that day but this will give you an idea of our haul and latest finds from the treasure trail.
One of my favorite finds of the day was this double-sided wooden game board. It’s going to be really hard to take it to the booth.
I don’t know what kind of blanket this is but it feels kind of scratchy. It has satin trim though so if anyone knows what this might have been used for let me know. Some of the sweetest people I know come from the great state of Tennessee.
I am in love with these blue and white farm plates. They’re the perfect size for dessert or even salads. Don’t you love all of the animals?
This footed bowl was one of a few things we bought from the estate sale.
I found this ironstone soup tureen at the estate sale too.
These buckets almost look like paper mache. I have no idea what they were used for though. They each have a little with a hole at the top just big enough for your finger. I love the neutral colors.
I found this brass lion container for my Mom. The wine openers are always popular at my booth. The B was the only letter I found that day. It’s sort of weathered gold.
The sweet ladies at the warehouse saved this table for me.
It’s so old.
I don’t have any plans to paint it but the top is definitely going to need some work.
I found this monogrammed shoe bag and this wooden scoop at the warehouse too.
Picked up some coastal items and
found a few things on my wish list like these dried hydrangeas.
All in all it was a really successful day.
Girl…you hit the motherlode – with your mother! 🙂 That blanket seems like it’s definitely wool – maybe used for football games? The blue and white farm plates are adorable, and you know my fave is the sweet little piggy! Great haul – thanks for sharing!

You are so right, Vicki, it’s definitely wool. It feels really scratchy. I know. Those blue and white farm plates. I love those too 🙂 Hugs, Coco
Great finds! My favourite – the plates!!!
Maya, I love those little plates too! They were definitely on my favorites list. Hope your weekend is a happy one, CoCo
Wow!! What a great haul! I love the vintage blanket. I didn’t go to Fulton but we played that high school. Very cool vintage piece. Also, love the old table. Do you know about the little arms that swing out? I was told (back in my antiquing days) that skirts were used on vanity tables with an opening down the front center. The swing arms would move the skirt out of the way so you could access the drawer easily. Not sure if this is correct historically but it made sense to me! You’re going to have some happy booth customers!!
Angie, I did hear that about the arms of the table. I also heard they used it to hide the chamber pot too. We are so blessed to have been born in this century 🙂 I thought of you when I bought the blanket. Big hugs, CoCo
You got some really cool items on your treasure hunt. It’s always fun shopping with Mom. My Mom is 84 and she is still a great shopper!
