Buying Trip

yesterday I had business in the DFW area, so I decided to make a day of it. My first stop was the town of Forney which is known for lots of antique stores right on the highway. However, several of these stores are out of business, so It's not as big as it used to be but I got lots of good stuff. For now I have a little Eye candy from a shop that has SO MUCH stuff, much of it very unique, that I actually didn't see it all. Their prices weren't great so I only picked up a few small things, but I think you'll enjoy these pictures.

No Airconditioning but plenty of fans.

They had tons of these baskets, all filled with these military tubes.
Looked like military surplus to me, but what was their purpose?

Tons of metal signs

These are the biggest shoe forms I've ever seen.

Fun with pool balls and snow shoes

Need a bucket?

How about a sap bucket

Or a colorful painted bucket

I love drawers

Stopp clowning around

Oops, I've fallen and I can't get up

What is this????

More drawers

Then I headed towards Grapevine to visit the Red Shed Girls
and Yes, to buy even more stuff (some really neat stuff).

Val risked breaking her camera, and took this shot of my next to a beautiful angel statue they are selling. They are having their semi-monthly sale this Saturday, so If you live in the area head over. It'll be worth your while, they find the best stuff.
Then I had a little bit of time to kill, so I headed to an antique mall I used to visit when I lived in this area, and picked up yet more stuff.
Then off to my hair appointment (yes that is the reason for the trip) and then to see
my BFF - Penny, for dinner, and then back home, arriving at 10:30 pm.
It was a great day and I'll fill you in on my purchases tomorrow.
