Atlanta Antiquing 2012

After our daughter's wedding last month we traveled to Atlanta where the groom's family hosted an open house for the newlyweds. Atlanta is a wonderful city with a fabulous downtown, beautiful neighborhoods, and of course, lots of shopping!While time was tight I did manage to squeeze in a little thrift shopping. Here are some of the goodies I found...

 My favorite find was this Wedgwood creamware vegetable bowl.

 Isn't this a darling piece of pottery? Look at the cute little bird's nest nestled in the handle! 
 I found a set of 4 Pimpernel placemats, and this little Italian lady is actually a bell. The clapper is hidden under her skirt.
 I love transferware! This red and white Staffordshire plate has images of Salt Lake City where much of my family is from.
 Lots of silver!
 My mother collects Mary Hadley pottery. These are a couple of pieces I know she doesn't have. Look at the cute little mouse in the bottom of the kitten's milk dish, yum!

And a few Christmas items for the store.

I also found some lovely vintage linens that I'll be turning into lavender filled sachets. 
I wish I had had more time to shop, but hopefully I'll be visiting frequently! Come check out my booth #20 at Merchant Square Antiques to see what other treasures I found!
