California purchases

So what did I buy in California??

Goodies!!


I fell in love ith this necklace and earrings at Brighton. I got the sweet mini creamer at Tai Pan.

I hit the jackpot with some different salt cellers than I already have...and the prices were fantastic!









Karen, Marty and I both fell in love with these sweet mini books.


I found one silver salt spoon that I could afford. Boy, those things for being only 2 inches are expensive!!





I just had to get the milk tops...since I love old milk and creamer bottles.



This sweet little jug was also from Tai Pan. I love the salt glazed look.


And when I saw this beehive napkin, now you know I grabbed that!!


This was one of my bigger splurges. I just had to get this pendant...it is black with the white C on one side and.....

white with the black C and crown!!! on the other!



I had to have this doll size milk bottle for my collection. It is about 2 inches high....I just love it!

I did buy a few other things, but they may be gifts for some friends who look on here...so I can't show them. But I tell you, next time I go, I am taking more money! The prices are great compared to here I think.....
IT Was SO MUCH FUN!!!

Welcome home Ceekay! Sounds like a fun trip! Love your goodies...especially the salt cellars & silver salt spoon. I want some silver salt spoons too but haven't been able to pay the asking price...they are steep!

I really love the necklace and the pendant is so sweet.
The beehive towel is just right for your Bee collection.
Looks like great shopping!

I love all your purchases, C, but you may have to hide the old books from me because they might be in my suitcase when I go home! I adore old books, especially poetry, verses, or children's...so watch out!!! Can't wait to get there...Kathy

So many wonderful treasures Ceekay!! I do love that salt spoon! You are so right about them being expensive- I would love to find some more but at the prices I think I will have to settle for the 2 I have.

Prices are . . . well you just never know. Personally I think CA is ridiculously high . . . but what can you do? I found some great deals in AZ too!
Love your BRIGHTON! GIRL!

Eeek! I want it ALL! I had to go back and read about what you have been doing. I think we are only hearing half the story. Hee hee. Karin, Marty and Ceekay = a recipe for fun and laughter.

Charlotte said...

Wow, Ceekay. You made a haul in CA. I love the Brighton necklace and earrings. Love Brighton - period.
I was showing this to my hubby as he was passing through. He said he had a book like that when he was a kid. He grew up loving books. Now he has hundreds, maybe thousands of books.
Hugs & blessings,
Charlotte
