Antique Shopping

A while ago, when I was visiting family in Illinois, my mom, sister and I did some antiquing. 
I found some great things (old window, suitcase, bottles) that I will get from my mom in a few days, but I was able to pack and bring these mason jars back to NC with me!
Each came as shown, and they were only $8.00!

Aren’t those wooden spools awesome?
The little mannequin, who my sister and I named Doodle (which is actually my mom’s nickname too) came from a local resale store called Passages. We were using her for jewelry display, BUT my sister was just surprised with a full size dress form! It’s perfect for our Etsy shop since people will be able to see the full size of the necklace!
Are you much of an antique-er? I’m usually more of a looker than a buyer. But I couldn’t pass up those mason jars!

    I’ve been putting off doing much antiquing because we haven’t moved into our home yet, but with closing being in two weeks I’ve started looking for some neat pieces to add.

    What a great find! I love how vintage it all looks in the mason jar. Hmm, maybe I could recreate it for my house, since I won’t be headed to Illinois anytime soon. :)

    I LOVE antiques!!! I have a really hard time finding good shops near where I live here in South Florida but whenever I go away I’m always on the lookout!
