Shopped ' til I dropped

I am home and WORN out from the Warrenton/Roundtop Antique Show.

Three and a half days of roaming around digging and picking were fun, but exhausting. I had to stop while I was there and put my feet up for a short rest.
(I am now sitting in my cushioned chair at home with my feet up while I work on this post...)

Every inch of the SUV was packed. Rusty gold. Diamonds in the rough. Lots of work...

Not everything I bought needs work. It just looks that way. Believe it or not the beautiful huge piece of tin on the right in the photo below was actually tucked safely in the middle of the car.

You can understand the scale of this tin piece if you notice the chair in the center.
It will probably end up as one of my keepers.
I will post more photos and info as energy and time allows...I wish you all could have been there with me!

I feel your pain, and joy. I was beat after 2 days and have spent the weekend cleaning all the good stuff to get it ready for Winnie & Tulula's.
Looks like you got a good haul, it was good to see you there. I was feeling a bit tired when we met so I might not have been my usual perky self, sorry.
Can't wait to see more detailed pics of what you got, love the tin piece.
