Glendale Crossing Festival Finds

Yesterday I blogged about visiting Glendale, Kentucky for their annual Glendale Crossing Festival.
I scored tons of fun things! So many that I have decided to show you
all of them in a couple different entries.
I had a mini coronary when I saw this Fire King Jadeite bubble bowl!
I almost hit the floor when I saw the price.
$7!!! Yes, a bowl that typically sells on Ebay and Etsy for $50-$60, I bought for
a measly $7.

The vintage Christmas ornaments were in a zip lock bag with a pretty little 1.99
sticker on it. I swooped them up with the quickness before anyone even thought about touching them!
I was a little unsure about what I should use the bubble bowl for.
It's not a very deep dish.
 So now it sits next to my couch on an end table.
It serves as a candy dish :)
I think I will fill it with ornaments at Christmas time.
(I didn't find this at the festival but I wanted to show you the sweet picture I found in my
mother's picture stash. I think these ladies are family of mine. My mother was a Genealogist and had loads of family pictures from many decades ago. Don't these ladies look adorable?)
Vintage hankie, .59. I'll keep it in my pocket for the cold season that's about to hit us.
Linens with a pretty price tag were few and far between at this festival.
I think everyone has caught onto us...
Vintage tea towel, 2.00.
Vintage tea towel, 2.25.
As I was making my rounds around the 500 + booths at the festival. I happened upon a booth where
a lady had vintage tablecloths. I put a little giddy-up in my step and shot over to the booth.
With sadness I learned they were all reproductions :(
Shhhh....don't tell anyone!
Reproduction Santa Clause tablecloth, 8.00.
I tried my hardest to visit all of my favorite antique stores while at the festival.
This was a very difficult task. It was a madhouse in the small town!
I did manage to squeeze my way through my favorite store while there.
I always visit the booth I got these potholders from, but have never seen them.
She must have put them out just for the festival.
Vintage crochet potholders, 1.50 each.
Are you ready for the Christmas-y, Vintage-y goodness?!
How simply gorgeous are these?
My kitty decided to have a looksie while my back was turned.
I sat her down and had a heart to heart.
I told her if she dared to bust up my Shiny Brites, I would find her a new home.
Lol, not really...but seriously, she better keep her paws off of them!
I usually buy plastic ornaments because all of us cat lovers know they think our Christmas trees are an indoor tree house.
Vintage Shiny Brite Christmas ornaments, 3.50.

Please check back this week for the rest of my
goodies! Happy Thrifting!

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Thank you for your visit..its a pleasure meeting you.
I have enjoyed reading many of your posts today.
What a great time, I would have been right there with you.
My SNL owns and runs a B&B in Elizabethtown IL and while visiting her she drove me into Kentucky, what part I did see of Kentucky I love it....what a beautiful state. I hope to visit Kentucky again when I'm out in IL.
So my goodness girl you really did hit the jock-pot! Love everything you found. What I have done with vintage hankies is use them for pillows or quilts.
I have become your newest follower and look forward to visiting again.
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth
