Asheboro Antiquing Adventure

Happy Thursday! Today's post is titled "Asheboro Antiquing Adventure" because anytime you take two children to an antique mall, it's an adventure (plus I really love alliteration so I needed to use three A words in the title, lol)! The great news is they didn't break anything but we definitely spent about half of our time saying don't touch that, no you can't have that $100 toy car, stop running, where are you, stay with us, and get out of that bathtub (yes, really). But, beyond that normal parenting stuff, we had such a fun time and we will definitely do it again!

Anytime, I go thrifting or antiquing, I go in with a game plan. It can be overwhelming to walk into a big thrift or antique store with no idea what you are even looking for. Unless, you have hours to spend browsing and a big budget, then I suggest coming up with a list of about three items or categories you are in the market for and how much you plan to spend:

M Y  G A M E  P L A N:
1. Pink vintage Christmas ornaments for my dining room tree.
2. Santa mug (the less red, the better).
3. Ball mason jars.
4. Spend less than $20 (setting a budget is essential).

I definitely hit the jackpot! We went to Collector's Antique Mall in downtown Asheboro (it's huge and filled with so many amazing treasures) and they literally had a case of gorgeous vintage Christmas ornaments. I wanted to buy them all! But, I really love the thrill of the hunt plus I am looking for a good deal (some of these were pretty pricey) so I only took home a few! I ended up buying three ornaments and they were all less than two dollars each.

I was also looking for a vintage ceramic Christmas tree but I couldn't find quite what I was hunting for in the price point I wanted to pay. But, they had so many pretty trees! I also found a budget friendly option at Target that range from $15-$30!

So, how did I do as far as my game plan goes? Well, I took home three pink ornaments, no santa mug (the ones I found weren't in as good of condition as I was hoping for), and no Ball jar because I wasn't in the market to spend $10 on one (like I said, good deals are my favorite). But, I did take home that gorgeous pink bouquet (see above) for only $5! 

Have you found any treasures lately?!

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great day!
