My favorite place to go antiquing is Rennigers Antique Market, located on over 117 acres north of Mt. Dora, Florida. In November, January, and February they hold an Antique Extravaganza that brings in more than 1000 dealers. I have been looking forward to this weekend for months.
I usually have a list of things I am looking for, but today I didn’t. I told my husband – let’s just take our time and browse and see what we find. Well, we did find a few goodies – a crockery jar and pitcher, a small pewter pitcher, a unique round muffin pan, 3 rolling pins, 2 wooden bowls, some beeswax dipped pears, and an awesome wooden chocolate box.
Close up of chocolate box. The chocolate box is in great condition and has the logo “Daggert’s Chocolates” imprinted on the front.
Close up of other goodies. The lady I bought the pears from said they were made from cinnamon dough and then dipped in beeswax – I think they will look great displayed in a wooden bowl.
I am so grateful for my husband – he is truly my best friend. He is always willing to spend a day helping me look for treasures - and he even carries them for me.
I hope you all are having a blessed weekend.
With A Grateful Heart,
plans in the works...
