Sunday we went to the Brass Armadillo antique mall. We went here last year, and it's one of those places that needs to be revisited.
Tara and Kiley enjoyed sitting in the snack bar area, Brass Armadillo isn't exactly on young teen-age girls list of fun things to do!Since Mom moved, she has wanted a white wicker rocker. While there, I found this one marked at $40! I went to my husband, took him back to see it, and in the 5 minutes I left it, it was gone! We went up to the check-out and asked if anyone had just bought it, and the lady told me the dealer just went out the door with it, she was changing up her booth! You're kidding me! We went outside to see if she was still in the parking lot, and she was gone! Really, she changes her booth out just as I find this rocker!? I was telling Jenny how bummed I was, when in came the dealer with the rocker! One of the employees went outside and tracked her down, she couldn't believe the rocker that sat there for so long, was wanted in the 5 minutes it took her to haul it back to her truck. I got it for $32. To fit it in the van, Chad folded down one of the seats.
Kiley sat in the rocker on the way home, with me singing "Beverly Hillbillies" to her. It reminded me of Granny Clampet riding in her rocking chair on top of the truck. We got home, and fixed a full course chinese dinner, from soup to nuts! Awesome awesome day!
