They Don't Call it an Extravaganza for Nothing...

Well, the weather has cleared up and we are hitting the pavement.  First Stop - The Extravaganza in Springfield, OH, at the Clark Co. fairgrounds.  Let me tell you, this place had EVERYTHING.  As my fellow picker put it "if you don't find it here, you aren't finding it..."  As we carved our way through the magical and whimsical walkways of other's treasures, we found ourselves not ever wanting to go home.
And it begins... So excited to be spending the afternoon (scorching hot) on the look out for some amazing finds!

As you know, we are in a flower kick - and can't get enough of great and unique planter ideas...not to mention how pretty this whole set up looked.  Adorable!

So many fun things to look at!!

Anything with the word "Chicks" catches our eye.  This little booth had so many little chick figurines - super cute!

Obsessed with this stuff. We can't get over how great it looks as accent pieces around the house.  The Extravaganza had so much of it too!

Lookout Alert:  Yep, we are on the hunt for CHAIRS!  That is right.  We especially love the ones with great detailing at the top like this one.  We have some funky projects in mind for our new chair finds...

Chick molds for some chocolate...heaven.

Assorted bottles and vases always intrigue us.  I'm sure each of them has a unique story to tell - where it came from, what it was used for.  Some are so old and unique - it is fun to try and find some rare pieces while picking through the big assortment.

These old photos are just one of the aspects of picking that we love so much.  There is such stories and history behind many of the pieces you can find at these places, and we are always looking to get the 411 on nearly everything we come across.  We love learning where our pieces and treasures came from...

FRAMES!  Always on the look out for these - there were so many great ones, we just couldn't choose!

The chosen one!  This little guy had the perfect detailing and was the most perfect size.  

Blocks are so much fun, as Mrs. Young has demonstrated above.  This stand had so many games and memories from when we were little kids - it was fun!

Colored glass flowers and leaves hanging from this old chandelier create the most precious and dainty look - we love it!   We are still on the lookout for the perfect chandelier ever though....


Overall, we had such an amazing time at this pick!  We did wind up with some really great pieces including some old window panes, picture frames, an old mantel, some beer tubs, a stand for some herbs in the garden, and a side buffet table for a dining room.  Stay tuned for updates about the pieces we have refurbished from our day of fun...

Until next time...

Peace & Love,

LeAnn & Jacee
