Labor Day Weekend

Hope you had an enjoyable long weekend!  On Saturday after a stop at a local estate sale where I found several pieces of jewelry and a few silver items, we traveled to Purcell via Noble.  We'd not been there to "junque" in over a year and wanted to go somewhere not too far from home as we had a lot planned for the weekend.  In Noble I found a cute Samsonite train case complete with it's original interior plastic tray and mirror.  I also scored a business ledger from 1949, in almost perfect condition with the exception of some mold on the binding (which of course makes the entire book smell a little musty but I'll work on that) and quite a few nice buttons.  In Purcell they were having an antique and craft fair downtown.  We weren't aware of it prior to arriving, but enjoyed discounts offered on our purchases at two of the three antique malls.  I found several hankies, an appointment book, lace, napkins, postcards and photos.  We also stopped by a flea market where we happened upon some old friends we hadn't seen in a while.  After a good visit with them and a nice lunch at Jo's Famous Pizza, we declared it a successful trip and headed home.

  1. What a score! I love to get the time to seek junk. And I love love love Jo's pizza. Looking forward to seeing you in Omaha, which is weird since we live in Oklahoma!
