The Moss Avenue Sales in Peoria, IL are an annual event that includes booth after booth of primitives, antiques, crafts, etc. while also providing food and live entertainment. I love to go every year and this year I spent the morning with my sisters looking for some things for myself as well as looking for potential items to use for 4 Sisters Peoria.
The item I am most excited about is this milk can end table. I scored this for $25! Most milk cans in this kind of shape go for $50 easily and the fact that it was already made into a cute primitive little table made it that much better! I can picture this in so many potential places in my house or out on my patio.
I also found this funny little sign for my yard. I can already picture Rusty peeing on it, thinking that it was a real fire hydrant. 🙂
I got several other items at the sales as well:
The tins are a newer thing for me. I have decided that I want to collect as many as I can to store my craft supplies in. The problem is finding older tins that aren’t super expensive. The flower tin I got for $5 (which is pretty much my limit unless I somehow fall completely in love with a specific tin…like some of the old peanut butter tins that I see. I love me some peanut butter and would love to add one of those to my collection) and the needlework pattern tin I got for $1. Both are in the color scheme that I want. When I hit up the 3rd Sunday Market this weekend, I will be on the lookout for some more coordinating tins in various shapes to go with my budding collection.
I also picked up some raw materials for specific crafts – the drawer front piece of wood was for a craft I will be completing for myself soon but the hearts I got to put away for the Valentine’s edition of 4 Sisters Peoria. ❤
I also got a couple more books in the junior reader series – The Wizard of Oz and The Heart of a Dog. There was no way I wasn’t purchasing the dog book and I had gotten a couple of other titles from this collection at the 3rd Sunday Market in May so I’ve got a nice little collection of these going as well. What strikes me about these is their beautifully illustrated covers. I haven’t decided quite what I am doing with them yet…just collecting for now. Nothing wrong with getting things for me!
