Junking in Roxie

Roxie, such a pretty name but don't let that fool you. There is nothing there. But we'll get to that in a little while.


BI got this pretty beaded choker with yellow rhinestones from there.


















It's Saturday again so it's time to show our lovely pinks and also time to have fun either sightseeing, shopping or attending any special event.


My pink contribution is this 2 tiered server. I like the pink roses on it and I also like the reticulated and lacy edges. If you want to see some really lovely pinks, go visit Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/




A few weeks ago, John and I went to Roxie, which is about a half hr. away from where we live. Just like I said, there really isn't anything there but there is this one store of which the owner, Cecile, has a booth in the store where my booth is, was having a sale that particular day. Cecile's mom used to operate this store for many long years when she was alive and Cecile inherited everything after his mom passed away.


You really have to be patient and look closely because there are treasures hidden among the junk, which is quite overwheling in such a tight space.

I started gathering what I wanted to buy. Cecile always works with me on the prices so don't mind those labels. That monkey was tagged $10 but I got it for $5. Do you see all the stuff that he is selling? You really have to be patient in looking around.



Here are all the stuff that I bought. All the jewelry boxes, I bought for $2 each. I brought home 4 lamps plus a fairy lamp. I spent $92 for everything. The teal glass candlesticks holders were $3 for the pair.


The ink well needs to be cleaned. Cecile said it came from Korea. I think I can make it pretty after dissolving the rust and polishing it. I plan to sell most of these in my booth.



These 2 lady boxes were $2 each. It looks like they are staying. They are already on my bed side table.


I like this butter churn. I might keep it. It was $7.

Isn't the flower girl sweet? She is a Mallorca and I bought her for $4. The fairy lamp was $3. I think I will keep them too. I was going to sell most of these in the store but it looks like I am keeping more, lol. I will sell the 3 lamps but keep the hobnail milk glass. Cecile forgot to add the needlepoint frame in my invoice so he just gave it to me for free.....such a nice guy!
I like this Victorian courting couple lamp but it's not the right color for our house so I am selling it at the booth.


This Gone with the Wind lamp is perfect except it needs to be rewired and I have just the right guy to do it, Mitch, our electrician. I just need to buy a lamp kit which costs about $6, I think. I bought the lamp for $20.

I love this monkey. He was $5. Doesn't he resemble a Majolica? he is quite tall too. It has a signature underneath but I couldn't make anything out of it. I am keeping this guy too.


I hope you enjoyed your virtual shopping. Thank you very much for coming and thanks, Beverly, for hosting another fun pink day!

His place may e small, but it is loaded with wonderful goodies. You have to be careful not to break something. I could probably browse there all day.

Oh my goodness, so much stuff! It reminds me of all the things we had to sell of my in-laws, but at least we did it at an auction so everything was gone at the end of the day. I think you did really well keeping your spending under $100! The monkey is so fun!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

WOW Christine I could spend all day in a store like that! Love your necklace too! Martina

Gayle Page-Robak said...

You are certainly a fabulous shopper...The items you selected are wonderful. That churn is outstanding as are so many of the other things you are showing. I don't know how you could ever give any of them up...

Maggie said...

Hi Christine,
What a wonderful collection of treasures you found at Cecile's place.
I think I could happily while away an hour or two there myself.
Have a grand weekend.
Maggie

Kathleen said...

Of course you are keeping the monkey! Everybody needs one!

I think we should have a Monkey Day Tablescape Party after Cmas. It will give us something to think about in the doldrums of Jan!
What do you think? I am in! You already have the centerpiece!
MONKEY AROUND or Not Your Uncle's Monkey! :) We could get Laurie to join, anyone else you can think of who is up for a little monkey business?

Loved seeing all your treasures. I would love to poke around that shop, esp the glassware!

chubskulit said...

I love that monkey!!I have been away for the Carrollton pilgrimage, but was so busy touring homes I didn't do any shopping.

lvroftiques said...

Christine you found some great treasures! I have the same problem...I mean to sell most of the stuff but somehow it ends up all over my house! Lol! Oh well there's always tomorrow and you can get rid of it then if you don't still love it right? *winks* Vanna
