I generally have rules about antique stores.... The big rule is that I can only spend cash (today I only had $20 in my wallet) and I usually have a couple of other things in mind. I had recently said I wanted an old, shabby kitchen scale, but hadn't really been looking for one. I saw this beauty and mulled it over for the whole of the rest of my browsing....just before we left I circled back and nabbed it. For a mere $15 it was mine AND I think it might actually work though I haven't checked it out.
I intend to put it in the kitchen, but the pictures from that locale looked like crap, so I moved it to my shabby table where the light was better and though it still isn't a great shot it is better and it makes me happy so that is all that matters. Right?
(Have I written about my vintage-look sign in the background? I had a great time doing it and would like to make some more!)
