Out Beating The Bushes Again

Where did this saying come from ? However it fits all of us treasures hunters. I am going to a new vintage shop close to Jefferson City today. A friend said I need to check it out so I'm on my way for another hunt.
I am looking like a lot of other people evidently because those vintage Pyrex bowls in pink are a lot of peoples treasures. I mean they are all bought up. I have a friend who wants a set so I am helping her look. I found a turquoise set but a bit pricey I  thought  $60.00 and $75.00 ? I think pricy for a set of four. But then again thinking out loud if they are well sought after.

There is always something new to hunt for and I guess I am a personal shopper for some of my friends because they are always telling me if you see such and such get it for me . I am always shopping vintage for my two sisters and a couple friends but I love it . I am the one always on the go and they well us say don't beat the bushes like me LOL.

I am looking for the middle bowl to this set.There is four in all.Really it's the one next to the large one I am looking for .

I found this pink plastic  silverware tray and thought it was so cool. I can use it for pencils or scissors on my work table.
Or I can give it to someone who loves pink things
                     I am going to head out on my day trip and will post more pictures when I get back late this afternoon with my new finds if any.

OK the new little shop I mentioned is soooooooooooo cute. It's name is Maple Hill Vintage Market
address is 106 E Broadway  Ashland Mo .    One of the owners named Mary was there and she is so charming sweet and in the know. Her shop to me had a lot of things I had seen on other blogs that had shopped in Marburger and Round Top Texas flea markets. All the shabby chic cabinets, All and number like 123and the letters like ABC etc you know what I mean, and tin and wood crates and Oh  my. She said she had sheds and building full so she inventory is always changing it will be worth the drive for anyone. Her hours are Thurs & Fridays 9-6
Saturdays 9-3.
She is going to start a blog so I will let yo know when she gets it up

I got these cute little PINK numbers and shaker filled with glitter today at the Maple Hill Vintage Market

Here is some things I found at another location

I thought this pink canister set was just too cute to pass up and very reasonable priced.
            I think this syrup jar is very cute with the pink lid

   This Texas Ware divided bowl was a in perfect condition so of course had to have it to go with all the other pink finds. Wait till you see this ice machine!!!!!!!!!!!!

               When I was a child I went with my grandparents to an Aunt's house for special visits and she had one of these ice-o-mat's anyway the only person in our family who had a ice crusher!! I always had to have crushed ice in my drink when we went to Aunt Georgie's & Uncle Charlie's house.  Hers was red and white if I can remember .
           Also over at How Sweet The Sound   she is having Pink Saturday. So my post really fits in today

  1. Thanks for stopping by today, I love your treasures, sounds just like me always on the hunt! Today was a bust no finds! But there is always other weekends so I'm going to just work on getting the things in my attic sold~ Hugs, Diane

  2. Hi there~ Love all the pinks and treasures you have! I love the pink letters/numbers and the darling canisters are so sweet! I also wanted to let you know that the link on your party link up over at my Feathered Nest Friday didn't work when I clicked it... Feel free to go ahead and link up again if you aren't getting many visits- that might be why. Anyway, Thanks so much for sharing at Feathered Nest Friday! Happy New Year!! :)

  3. Absolutely love all of your pink finds, they are amazing, especially the ice crusher!!!

  4. WOW, lots of pink pretties in this post! I love that canister set and the syrup jar. It's so hard to find anything pink around here, and Pyrex is just outrageously priced. But I do love the thrill of the hunt, so I'll always keep looking!
    Happy Pink Saturday!
