The amazing Orono Antique Market
I spent a very nice afternoon in Orono wandering around the antiques stores. My original intent was to see if I could get a preview of the auction there tomorrow. Unfortunately, no-one was at the auction house despite smushing my face up against the window and banging on the door. Anyway, at the Orono Antique Market, I was was very graciously shown around by the owner Alistair. I enjoyed a conversation with one of his customers (who had me fired up about the possibilities for some pieces) and I walked away with a couple of great bargains. Stayed tuned for the makeovers in the next few weeks. P.S. That doesn't mean that I won't be at the auction tomorrow. Despite the foggy glass I spied more than a few goodies that were begging for a transformation!
I have always loved the potential of "stuff". It's an effort to pass up an auction, surplus, salvage or thrift store. My favourite four-legged friend, Maggie, often accompanies me on my adventures to find new projects. Now if I could get her to use a hammer and hold a paintbrush, I'd be all set.
