My hubby and I take little get-away trips every now and then to 'recharge' (ok, it's really an excuse to eat a lot plus get my shopping fix at some new places!)  We just got back from Columbus, which is about 2 hours from where we live.  I didn't find a ton this trip, but what I did find is some good stuff! Here is a pic of my 'booty'.  I'm always drawn to wire, so I was happy to find a couple of cool wire baskets. I also got some great industrial hooks, two metal and wood boxes/sifters, a square tin picture frame, and an abacus.
Last year my friend Suzanne (who lives in Columbus and always finds the new/best places to shop!) and I hit upon an antique mall called Heritage-and inside is an absolute gem called 'Motley Junket'. Whenever I get to Columbus I beeline for Polly (and her friend Keely's) booth!  Right after I got there, Polly actually came in to stock up, so it was a great surprise to see her! (She has a fun blog-Sassafrass Stuff) They had so many great things filling their booth, but these are what came home with me:  the fun cubbies-imagine the possibilites!; the rolled up maps-I bought some there before and was happy to see she had more; the wooden drawer unit-I love how rustic it is!; and the receipt 'thing' that is perfect to hold business cards!  At this point I'm not sure what will end up where (my shop, or Etsy, or my home!) But I sure had fun hunting!
