Summer Vacation on Monday

Our cousin Cheryl clued us into the wonderful, historic town of Crown Point. What a place! There were so many antique stores. The old court house was just beautiful! The basement, which apparently used to house the jail, had wonderful shops. I was the only one who bought anything.

I bought these three pieces. L to R: an amber Fostoria Coin Glass creamer; a cranberry glass water goblet; and a lead glass creamer. These should have cost me around $75. I paid $10.50 for all three!

These dressers (with comic book covers applied to the fronts of the drawers) made me wonder if my sons would have liked having them when they were young. Double click any photo to enlarge.

When we got back to my aunt and uncle's home, more cousins arrived. The first ones arrived from New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and Colorado.

L to R: Luke (2), Pat holding Hazel (1), and Ethan (5)

L to R: Ross arriving with Sophia (4 weeks). Greeting him are his sons Luke and Ethan, and sister-in-law (my cousin) Jill, who is holding her daughter, Hazel. Hazel is named after our maternal grandmother. It was so much fun meeting Sophia and Hazel for the first time!

Great pictures. Maybe I will get you hooked on thrift shops yet with the great buys you got. I guess that was an antique shop. Just think thrift shops would even be cheaper.
