Yesterday was my last day with the grandson
I had promised him lunch and a movie
Before the movie I took him
downtown to Fossati's Deli for lunch
Fossati's Delicatessen is the oldest deli in Texas, and one of the oldest restaurants in the United States. Located in Victoria, Texas, Fossati's was opened in 1882 by
After lunch and a little history lesson
we headed out......
.....since we were in the downtown area
and all my favorite flea markets are in that area.......
I decided it was time to introduce my 14 year old
grandson to the "flea market world"
He found it some what interesting
and I found a treasure I couldn't live without
a vintage ironing board
I love the red metal
but not so much the ugly cover
so first thing I did was cover it with pretty linens
|Ok, this looked better|
But then I peeked under the old cover
and pad and look what I found....
A beautiful wood board!!!!
as you can see the under pad was rotted
and falling apart and it was nailed to the end
of the board so it took me a while to get it off
Wow, how cool is this????
and it only cost me $5.00
For now I have it in my bedroom
I added pictures of my grandparents
and a pair of my baby shoes
I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with it
maybe keep it, maybe sell it in my next booth
or I could even use it for display in my booth
I also picked up two vintage aprons
at the flea market
Aren't they cute
They will definitely go in my next booth
which will be in March at Goliad Market Days
Every Little Birdie says-
Lunch & a movie, grandson was happy
a little flea market shopping, Nana was happy
it all worked together for a wonderful last day
with my very sweet grandson!!
