I loaded my car Friday night so I could leave early Saturday morning. The vehicle was so full, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to fit anything in it at the first stop.
We started at Peddler’s Mall, and from there we went to lunch at Logan’s. I took very few pictures because I was busy chatting and getting to know my new friends.

I believe everyone had a great time! It was a beautiful day, and I had a blast making new friends!
Wanna see what I picked up?
Not a lot, but so happy with the finds!
Check out this great antique fireman’s bucket. Why oh WHY do people write the price ON the item with a sharpie? Any suggestions on how to get this off?
Hollie spied this and brought it to my attention. It was a $1 over my $5 limit, but most of the work was already done. Someone had already sprayed it with chalkboard paint, so all I need to do is paint the frame.
Oops! They spray painted the mirror, which broke somewhere along the way.
In the posts leading up to Spring Fling I showed you some pictures from Salvation Army. They had a ton of boxes for .25 each. I picked up these small shallow boxes to hold my small Mr. & Mrs. signs for my upcoming show over Memorial Day weekend.
They also had these boxes that are perfect to hold my longer Bride & Groom signs.
I got a great deal on this contact paper for use as stenciling material for my Etsy signs.
I picked up a couple more cupboard doors for chalkboards. This one is laying on the boxes, so it is sort of confusing to look at.
This one is larger and it’s nice and sturdy.
Last, but not least I got these buckets. I’m hoping to use these and the fireman’s bucket to display my signs that are on stakes. I plan to give the buckets a vintage finish like Suzanne of Meridian Road did.
Hollie wrote a great post with fabulous pictures from the day, check out her post: Spring Fling Meetup
