My Prim Treasures From St. Mary’s

Good evening, everyone.

Remember in a previous post, I told you hubby and I got away for the day and hit one of my favorite antique malls.

St. Mary’s, MO.

Here is a quick post to share what I got.

Lets start with my favorite find!

I found this wonderful old quilt.

It is hard to tell in the photos but it is made up of wonderful early blue calico.

The end pieces were added a later time.  Under them is the same blue calico fabric as on quilt.

But wait! It gets better!

Check this out!

Yes, the back was covered in blue calico fabric too!!!

Lucky for me, this is a string tied quilt, not stitched.

So, I am going to take it apart and use the amazing fabric for my creations.

I found one more quilt on my outing.

A wonderful feed sack cutter.

So pretty.

This one is perfect for crafts or for a stacker.

It does have wear to the edges and some worn spots to the quilt top.

Inside this quilt is a bonus.

They used an old pick blanket instead of batting.

Next is an item I am considering selling, but I don’t have it listed yet.

I’m trying to figure out the shipping cost.

It is an amazing antique high chair with fabulous, true old, worn blue paint.

Unfortunately, one of the lower spindles are broken.

But to me, it doesn’t make it any less wonderful.

Here are the last few items I bought.

These are all for me.

At least for now :)

A wonderful old, dome lid, trunk with fabulous old mustard paint.

I love mustard in real life, but it is such a difficult color to get an accurate photo of.

Trunk is a warm, not bright, mustard yellow.

I have this sitting in my foyer, holding a small display of sewing items.

I picked up some more fabric and some vintage doll clothes for my creations.

And lastly, these adorable antique baby mittens.

Love them!

All in all, I would say, it was a pretty darn good junkin’ day.

I'm a teensy wee bit jealous, Tammy! I'd love to find old blue calico quilts and cutter quilts like yours! So much history in them!
Fab high chair too!
Best wishes

Hi, Tam. I'm so glad you are safe from the storms. Well I'd say you sure did have a successful trip. What pretty quilts, even if they are cutters. That blue high chair grabbed my heart.

Oh what a great find in the blue calico quilt! Good idea to take it apart and use both pieces. Lots of cutter pieces that would be fun to play! Love the old blue high chair also, what a neat find. Definitely a good junkin' day~
