Vintage Toys


What is better than an old rusty Tonka dump truck? More rusty trucks? We saw quite a few vintage toys yesterday at the Magnolia Ridge Antique & Art Gathering in Ridge Spring, South Carolina. It was held at a working farm and it was a beautiful site for such a gathering{more on it in another post}.


This truck is in excellent shape. Can you see a wee tree lashed to it at Christmas?
 I can.



This chippy pink child's chair was not for sale but was on one of the rear porches of the large farm house.




These are a child's vintage rake and hoe. I had to have them and snapped this image with the price still on them. I was tuckered out. Shopping with my buddy Distressed Donna Down Home is not for wimps. She does not move fast but glides effortlessly to the finish line. Lunch at the famous Juniper's was delicious as always.

 I have another friend who has a booth in a antique store that we love there in town. Suddenly Ridge Spring is one of my favorite places to visit.

I will have more on the farm antique sale, beautiful southern house, and outbuildings in upcoming posts.

  5. That green and orange truck is amazing! I saw all sorts of vintage garden tools today at the fair I went to, but they all were way to expensive for me. It's almost like they all knew that they would look fabulous on my front porch or something.

  8. If I had the sunshine required in my kitchen, I would use one of those trucks to plant some fresh herbs in! How cute would that be!

  22. South Florida needs to get itself a Magnolia Ridge Gathering. I think we are unfairly missing such a wonderful place. Love those trucks. Too cool!

  23. In one of your previous posts you mentioned the town of Ridge Spring and I checked it out online. My husband and I are thinking of going to their yard sale June 1. Have you ever been to that? If so, any words of wisdom to share?

    Thanks ever so much. I really enjoy reading your posts.

    Blessings,
    Margaret

    1. I have never been to the Highway 23 yard sale but have two good friends who go every year. I am planning on going with Donna who I mentioned in this post. She recommends starting in Ridge Spring and then going to Ward, Johnson, and ending in Edgefield. I love love Ridge Spring. Be sure to eat at Juniper's if you have time. They have supper there too. Thank you Margaret for reading Olive Out.

  24. The Peachtree 23 yard sale is huge so plan to do a bit or walking. Wear comfortable shoes! Lots of booths sell bottled water along the way. Lunch at Juniper is highly recommended and their supper menu is awesome! While you're visiting our town, please take the short walk to Pat's Antiques. It's very easy to find! If you are looking out the front door of Juniper, walk straight ahead, over the railroad tracks, past the fire department and Ms. Harriet's Garden store (stop in and say hello to Ms. Harriet! She's a treasure!) and Pat's Antiques will be the large white house in front of you. There are signs in the yard. This street is lined with beautiful old homes to look at! I'm Ms. Pat's neighbor (to the right, if you are looking at her house) so wave if you see us! HAHA! Ridge Spring is a lovely town full of wonderful friendly people. Enjoy your visit! Ms. Olive, I realized while looking at Ms. Donna's blog that my husband and I had walked out of the antique store behind you on Saturday. I wish I had said hello!
