Recent wedding purchases
As you know, my mom and I went to Amish Country on Tuesday for her birthday. While we were there we picked up some things for the wedding:
1. Cake (or pie) toppers. These were only $4.50 each purchased at Sol's in Berlin. I love their puffed up red chests. So cute!
2. Also, stocked up on some Mason jars at Berlin Village Antique Mall. While we were there, I figured out why there is such a cost difference between Mason/Ball jars. Some of the jars have dates on them some don't. The older the jar, the more they cost. For instance, the antique mall had some jars that were $30 and then some (that I purchased) between $2-$4 a pop. I still have a lot more to purchase, but we certainly have a good start!
Also, a few weeks ago, mom and I went to the Delaware Arts Festival and while in Old Delaware, I found this gem at another antique mall:
It is an old tool carrier, but I plan to use it to house tissues and mints on our welcome table at the wedding. I am on the lookout for either an old box or egg basket to hold programs fans.
