For those of you that buy & resell vintage goods, you
know that every now & again we find something that we
just have to keep for ourselves on our antique adventures.

These are my two "keepers" from an antique trip to 
Appleton, WI on Saturday.

My Ian just moved to Neenah, and Dave & I journied over
to bring some things for his apartment & spend some 
time with our boy.  This was Dave's first chance to see the 
new place.  Lucky for us, Ian lives just a few miles from one of our
favorite antique malls, the Fox River Antique Mall in Appleton.
Since Ian works until about noon on Saturday, what were we to 
do while we waited for him??......antique, of course. 

To make for an even better day, we ran into Sarah & Winn, out 
for an antique adventure of their own.  And if this was not pure 
kismet, Dave & I have only shopped together at this mall twice in the
past imagine we have spent maybe 4 hours out of 
365 days at this mall ~~ AND both times we ran into Winn & Sarah!!
Honestly, we had no idea they were going there, we each have at least 
a 4 hour round trip to get there...and we run into one another in the
middle of an antique booth ~ twice.........kismet!

Saturday was a day of "keepers" ~~~~ memories of such a fun day 
spending time with family, running into friends.  Each time I look at my
Kreamer heart baking pan & Dundee Marmalade pot, I will smile!

Addendum...imagine my extra surprise, I just did an EBay search on the Kreamer heart baking pan.  I debated spending a firm $32.00 for it, but decided I had never seen one before, AND I would keep it. One just sold in January for about $140 with shipping (with 11 bids!) on EBay! Yes, a keeper!
