My first stop was on the way to her house and it was at the Goodwill on Albertson Parkway, my sister Deb is always finding goodies there and I figured I'd swing in and check things out. Deb found EIGHT dinner plates, six coffee cups and an assortment of saucers and salad plates in my china pattern at Where Pigs Fly in Lafayette for a whopping $6.50. Today I found SIX more lovely dinner plates in my Blue Whisper china pattern at Goodwill and at .59 a piece I couldn't go wrong, they're in mint condition. Sure they're inexpensive grocery store china, but they're lovely and I've enjoyed finding new pieces to go with them.
Then I picked up Deb, we went to an estate sale on Cantabury in West Bayou Parkway subdivision. I found some pretty glasses, a few baskets, four pretty coral napkins in great condition. Here are pics of these finds.
On to the shopping. We then ventured over to Melanie LaFleur's place on Industrial Drive. She's got a huge warehouse full of consignment and antique goods, she was having a huge 60% off sale on most of items in the store and 75% off of the stuff out in tool shed out in back of the garden equipment and goods. Naturally we found a whole lot of good stuff out there! She's only open from 10 to 3 on most days and the reason for the huge sale is on accounta she's been in Roundtop and is returning on Wednesday with loads of treasures. We're definitely going to have to go over there on Thursday of next week. These are the treasures I found at Melanie LaFleur's.
Afterward we drove up I-10 to Opelousas and found some great things at Crossroads and had a yummy lunch while we were there. These were my treasures from Crossroads.
Traveling farther up I-10 we arrived at the Washington Old Antique Schoolhouse Mall. I picked up a few things there and this is where Dee and I concocted the notion that a trip to Ponchatoula would be the best thing for the four of us, me and Honey Dave and her and her sweetheart Normand should do for my birthday the next day, March 28. We gathered up our treasures and headed back to Lafayette at this time with plans for Saturday. These pics are of my Washington treasures.
Amazingly Deb and I returned home safely without any breakage. Do check out her blog for pics of her treasures. I'm sure she'll have a post up soon about our adventures. You can find her here "Under the Cajun Sun"
