Salt & Pepper…

Finally!!! Since I was at my first flea market several months ago, I have been on a hunt to find a fabulous matching milk glass salt & pepper set.  You see, at that first flea market – I didn’t realize how quickly you had to snatch & purchase something if you saw something you wanted.  I saw a set similar to these, but waiting too long to make up my mind & someone reached across me & grabbed them, paid for them & moved on….while I sat there in awe of what just happened.

So when I came across these at an antique store recently, I didn’t hesitate!  & they are mine…all mine!

and I am happy!

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

LOVE those Tracie!... oooh, I would love to take you antique~treasure hunting with me... I learned a long time ago, you have to be really, how should I put this, PUSHY and grab what you want or someone else will get it for sure!... I have always been nice and rather shy, and when I saw I was losing out on so many things, I became the fastest shopper there is!... now I want some shakers just like yours!... xoxo Julie Marie

Glad you got them this time! Isn't it amazing how fast things can happen when someone really wants it! I have a similiar story from a sale I was at. Was looking at a box of different wall decor and while I was looking through it a lady came up and said, "I am taking all of these" and swooped the box right out from under me. I even had my box sitting on top of that box. I kept the two in my hands though. HA!!

The salt and pepper shakers are really cute, sort of retro looking! I have had similar things happen to me at flea markets. Once I went to get my husband a few feet away to look at a table I wanted and someone just picked it up and paid for it in that split second. We have been looking everywhere for something like it. Bummer. But hurray for you!!!

XO,
Jane
