Renningers Extravaganza!

If you're a Floridian and you love anything in the way of vintage or antique, you probably know about Renningers. It's a huge indoor/outdoor antique mall where you can find anything from antique lab equipment to Heywood-Wakefield furniture.

 I've found some great pottery and art there over the years. Their triannual antiques extravaganza was this past weekend, so me and some friends drove up to check it out. I was in the market for some syroco-like ornate mirrors to hang above my dining room buffet and some vintage planters.

We saw some interesting stuff but nothing that was on my list (well, nothing that was quite at the right price). I'm pretty selective when it comes to purchasing accessories, actually--I either have to know exactly where it's going to go in the house or love it so much that I have to make a place for it. And I try not to deviate from my lists, which keeps down impulsive buys and the pile up of not-so-loved-items that end up in the garage sale pile. Actually, we all walked away without buying anything (except for Patty, who bought a small charm). But it was fun to look.
