Still wandering around the southern U.S. Today we stopped in a few little Kentucky towns. We’ve visited quite a few flea markets, consignment shops, antique stores and thrift shops. It is interesting to see how items are priced relative to the locations/states and relative to our own prices.
For example….I find the Depression glass surprisingly expensive. We’ve run into a great deal of Fenton glass, much more than I’ve ever seen at home. hens on nests can be found more cheaply than at home, but not always. I now own two more amber hens, a green one and a white one. All less than $12. One was $4 but has a wee chip.
Anyway….I haven’t photographed any pieces, but will once we get settled back home. Tonight we are in a town called Georgetown in Kentucky. We had dinner at a great restaurant named Fava’s – everything is home made and fresh. The catfish was superb! They make a pie called Almond Joy (like the chocolate bar). I still am having a sugar rush! The main street boasts 2-3 antique stores so that will be the first order of business before we head out of state to Ohio.
Vacationing is great, but tiring. I have not found as many pieces that I wanted to buy as I thought I would. Very few pieces of etched stemware. Oh well. Despite that (tee hee) it’s been a good trip.
