Antiquing in Maine

Ok, you know you love your job when you enjoy doing it when you are on vacation.  I am currently on vacation in Maine (that's me in the kickers relaxing in a hammock) and enjoying the beautiful Fall colors, however I am also enjoying the many antique shops in the area:)  I rented a home in my favorite spot in the states, Ogunquit, Maine.  This time of year the summer crowds are gone and the streets are essentially open for me to roam pretty freely unlike the lines I would experience in the Summer.  Rte. 1 from Ogunquit to Arundel was spattered with antique shops and to my wonderful surprise a daily flea market.  So, of course I had to go out and check it out!!

Unfortunately the Harper side of Syd and Harper was not along for the trip so I had to go it alone:(  Dusty, aka, Harper kept up with the business back in Indiana and I thank him very much.  The least I could do was go and buy and blog about it, right??  (I'm feeling a bit guilty, can you tell?)

So below are some pics of my antiquing adventure...

I am limited on space for my goods so had to limit my purchases to this lot of goods.  The signs are super cool, I have a feeling only one will make it to the shop, I may be keeping one for myself:)

I'm loving these metal display racks that I scored at a random flea market!!  And the other finds..

a cool stage light and...(drum roll please)

a fun drum!!  

This week has been quite fun and relaxing here in Maine and I will miss it very much.  Thank you Bobby for the wonderful house!!  I won't forget it:)

And to the Ocean...

you will always have my heart:)

Thanks Dusty for all of your work this week!!!!  See you soon:)
