Antique'ing

This weekend my grandparents came to visit with us...
Yesterday we went to Madison, GA and some small towns around there to go shopping and antique'ing. 


We found a few treasures, but a lot of WEIRD stuff..
like this BEAUTIFUL lamp.. those eyes wouldn't freak me out at all!
then we went in this other store FULL of creepy dolls. I mean wall to wall dolls lined up... and the eerie lighting didn't help. It felt like a scary movie.

 
 Eeeeeek!!!

However, I did find this adorable gold jacket with matching mini dress.
It's from the 1960s and it was an extra-small, so sadly it didn't fit.  :( I was devastated.  

the dress was sleeveless
My camera's phone doesn't do it justice.. I promise it was cute.

So now I'm dying to go to some vintage thrift stores!!!
Have any of y'all found any treasures  vintage thrifting?
