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.
Check out all the wonderful feed sack designs!
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.
I have this quilt listed in my Etsy shop.

I also found these wonderful items for resale.
A vintage utensil tote.
Some vintage started quilting projects.
This star is still backed with old newspaper.
The center circles are not finished on this.
But full of wonderful vintage feed sack design.
I have listed this nice yardage piece of vintage fabric.

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.
All in all, I would say, it was a pretty darn good junkin’ day.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
And don’t forget…
