Third Monday Trade Days in McKinney, Texas

This is an awesome monthly gathering spot in McKinney - aisle after aisle of treasures at great prices.  There were several pieces I would love to have brought home with me - if I only lived closer!  A few of the pieces will be arriving today - can't wait to get the box in the mail!
The weather was perfect!  Blue sky and about 70 degrees - a
 far cry from the weather conditions in Wisconsin!
 This would be such a fun little bench to fix up - love the 
drawer - however, it wouldn't fit in my suitcase.


Regret . . . a great old iron dishrack I didn't pick up.
Door Knob Bob and his tables full of old iron
 hinges, keys, door back plates, and hooks.
 I have a special project in mind for those door plates . . .
A beautiful antique french style lamp.
Check out those little cherubs!!!
The matching chandelier!
Hanging china rosebuds take the place of crystals.
 This vendor had all kinds of garden ornament light catchers 
made out of stacked glassware - another fun summer project.
 Another regret . . . not purchasing this book.  Years ago, when my
boys were small, we walked along a trail by this name in northern Wisconsin.

 Probably the best inspiration piece I saw!  I'll be doing 
my own version of this on an armoire this summer.

Such an awesome time with you! You got pictures of things I don't even remember seeing! Can't wait to get up there this summer and see all of your treasures in their new home!

What a treasure trove! How did you resist? Wait, I know how... not enough room to carry it all... ever since I traded my RAV4 for a sedan, I've missed out on some great finds too! Glad you got the keys though!
