Antiquing over Thanksgiving

I forgot to post these pictures from some antiquing/ thrift store shopping my Mom, Grandma and I did over Thanksgiving. Up in Southern NH there are quite a few places to shop, we only hit up a few, but there was lots of nice things at all of them. I only came home with a few books and an antique metal flower frog, but here are some of the fun finds:

Pretty Ironstone

I loved this set, so pretty for a Thanksgiving table setting a la Eddie Ross

Sterling silver plated serving pieces, and some pretty crystal salt cellars

Beautiful alabaster lamps- I was wishing they had two of these, but then again I also was wishing I had an extra room to put them in. They would have been so pretty on either side of a bed, with a different shade of course.

More pretty lamps. I was hoping these would have a nice price tag, but when I saw that they were $170 each, I knew they were not in my budget.

Hopefully I'll do some more thrift shopping and antiquing over my Christmas break....maybe more will come home with me then :)
