Bombing Around The Valley

Today my friend Tracey and I hopped in her SUV and started bombing around the Ottawa Valley!  What fun we had!  Tracey was looking for a few very specific things for her new home and we needed to hit some Antique/Flea Market type places to do so.

I managed to to pick up some 7 year old cheddar as a treat.  Yes, for him old, old, old, stinky cheese is a treat (ewwwww).  I got a Christmas gift for Christin, and some very sexy 3 inch heels for myself (originally $80 for $36 what a steal!). 

I had the most fun at our second to last stop later in the afternoon.  At this huge Antique/Junkyard place.  It was just stacks and piles and miles of stuff!

For some reason I love insulators!

This pretty jug is just sitting outside in the elements

Beautiful coloured glass on a windowsill

The interesting textures of washboards

Piles and piles of junk that you can barely move between... piles taller than me!

Looking for hubcaps?  I know where you can find some!

Fantastic old taps

Tracey is a tiny little thing, you could barely move around INSIDE!

Because I'm vain... you author taking a self portrait in a chrome thingie outside!

Loved the pictures Dani! It looks like a great way to spend a Saturday. BTW where is that last stop?

That last picture is great! I would lo trapse around that place you went where there's no room to move. Those insulators are worth a fortune, we had a few up at my dad's cabin. I don't know if they are still there or not.
Looks like you had a great time, and you good some good deals. (The heels)
