Extravaganza finds

This past weed-end in Mount Dora, FL was the Renningers Antique Extravaganza,
 a three day event that is held in November, January and February every year. 
Located on 117 acres of scenic, rolling land,antique dealers come from all over selling their wares.
After participating in the Fancy Flea show the previous week-end and fighting a nasty bug all week
I truly was exhausted by Sunday afternoon, but it was so worth it!

this is my haul...

 chicken nesting box from Virginia
 wouldn' this look great in a bathroom filled with big white fluffy towels
or perhaps a laundry room to hold all those supplies
5 foot long

chippy peely spindles


 string dispenser from old hardware store
white tool box

rusty, crusty, chippy ceiling tins

 school clock it still works perfectly

stainless marine binoculars
metal letters

a weakness of mine.. rosaries

old posts

basket from an antique french bicycle that folds flat

holy water basin from an old church

fabulous very heavy iron street sign from England

small oil painting

ironstone footed bowl
yes it has a crack but I love it anyway

The sad thing about doing what you love with all your heart, you can not keep it all.

Until next time, please enjoy the pictures
