|Niagara Falls, Stoney Creek, Hamilton, Missisauga, Freelton Antique Market|
On Thursday I made the trek to Niagara Falls with my fiance for our 4 year anniversary, stopping in Burlington, Hamilton, Dundas & a little Antique Market in Freelton, Ontario - halfway between Hamilton & Guelph. I think that`s what Freelton might be known for - their antique market. Not quite an exciting town & signs pointing towards the antique market as soon as you enter the town of approximately 800. The market had PYREX GALORE, but generally, it wasn`t my type of market. I know a market or two I would visit first over this one. I could have left with many more items if I were richer, but unfortunately, I just left with a Butterprint mixing bowl 402 from a booth that was 50% off. Also pictured below is a 441 Butterfly Gold for $1.99, a pattern I normally am not fond of, but have been loving some of the pictures of the gold on white mixed with pink & Butterprint. Way in the back, 2 vintage Pyrex bottles - one made in USA one in Canada, 99cents each. Also, Spring Blossom serve & store... Niagara Falls!

Some nice linens picked up, sheets & towels from the 1980`s - Miss Piggy towel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles towel, The A Team flat sheet & another Nintendo flat sheet - can never have too much of these. Sheets are from Mississauga on the way home & towels are from Stoney creek.
Niagara was great! We arrived late in the evening - starving, so first stop after checking in was The Keg over looking the falls - what a view! The place was huge & the food was great. From The Keg to the casino, where we blew through about $100 quite quickly & downed a strawberry daiquiri or four & back to the hotel for a Storage Wars marathon.
Before we left, I insisted that we stop on the Value Village there one more time SOOO glad we did. This divided Friendship dish, in fantastic condition, with lid was only $5.99. Can you believe it? ..
Hamilton yielded this set of nesting bowls, which I didn`t photograph well & this owl which was 99cents. This pink Pyrex was $1.99 at a Value Village where they charge an arm & a leg for their Pyrex.. some will sit on the shelves for weeks. I reckon these was so cheap because it was so grimy, I`m going to take this on as a project & clean it up.
Going to link up with HER LIBRARY ADVENTURES.
