Okay, not sure what's wrong with the pictures from the last post (thanks Chip for alerting me there was a problem) but I am going to add pictures to this post differently, so maybe they will work.  For all of you that are curious about the pics in the last post, you'll just have to attend the fall sale to see what I was talking about!
 
Just two days after Sharon and I returned from an awesome two days in PA (first at Renningers and a couple of our other favorite haunts in Adamstown, then to the Cash and Carry in Oaks) we went on an awesome "pick" in the Snow Hill area.  We had a message from Valerie that she wanted to sell a few things and reorganize her shop, so we headed down there with TWO TRUCKS this time...how many times have we had to return after the first load to pick up more great stuff at a pick?!? 

Well, Valerie didn't disappoint.  After we lessened the load at her shop, she wanted us to meet her lovely parents.  Mr. & Mrs. Phillips had been in the antique business for quite a long time, and most of the items Valerie sold us were from them, but they had other things they wanted to sell, so we bought from them too!
 
We got really nice things, too.  Love these trunks...
 

And this blanket chest has beautiful handmade hinges, and a candle box...


Also got this nice carpenters tool carrier.  Not sure if it was originally in a tool chest or not, but I can't wait to Briwax it!!!
 
Anyway, we had a great time, filled two trucks, and met some very nice people...what more could we ask?!?
 
Hope you all have a great week.  Hopefully we will be able to work in the barn later in the week, but it looks like it might be a HOT week.  We also plan to get into the trailer that was filled when we moved to the new barn soon.  We haven't ventured in there for a while, who knows what goodies might be in there!!!
