Piddlin’ Trips | Old Haunts

‘pressed while netflixing…and waiting for baby’s any-day-any-week-now-arrival!

After one has spent enough time at any piddlin’ outpost, there may often be a need to take a break to allow for booths to be refreshed + shook up a bit before returning to successfully uncover more spectacularly long-awaited finds once again.

Put simply –it never hurts to give a place a rest–

I’ve been looking back through some of my photo archives + came across these fun piddlin’ sights from some months ago (could it have really been over a year?)  + it may be time to circle back for a fresh look!

Can someone explain why these lovely mounted antlers seem to always cost a small fortune?  …Also, that round mirror!  These two items will both be on my mind for years to come.

A beautiful secretary has been on my wish list for a few years now…though I have been spotting them with more frequency on my piddlin’ trips, I’m unsure I will ever be able to pull the trigger on one as they each have such a lovely, victorian charm about them in so many ways.  Some with lattice work atop their glass cabinet, others with intricate drawers + cubbies, + still a great many feature fancy finials on top.  I love them all.

…I always say “nothing haunts like the antiques we didn’t buy”, so when some fabulous find once seen is still there after a hiatus, it’s a sure sign it belongs with you!  Otherwise… all you have are the snaps you take while speed pickin’.  I’ll be honest, there are more than a few things here that will be haunting me for a little while longer.

What a bummer it is to miss your chance to snag a fun find + oh,
how it feeds the frenzy of a good pick to come!
