Weekend Treasures

Labor Day weekend isn't usually busy for me. Most years, it's a time to relax and unwind. This year was full of fun and treasure hunting. We found out about this "Traders Market" in Elko, MN (about 20 mins. South of Mpls/St.Paul) through the owner of the St. Paul antique market on Selby. It's a combination of flea market and antique dealers, and Saturday was the perfect day to venture out. Here are the goodies I managed to score :)

Set of vintage Pyrex mixing bowls. I've seen this set being sold for as high as $120 and as low as $40. Let's just say I paid somewhere in the middle (but towards the low end).

I'm a bottle collector and a Vikings fan. This purchase was a no-brainer.

I love little tchotchke items, so when Tom found this jar full of old game pieces/dice,  I was in heaven. I have big ideas for these little guys!
