Renningers Extravaganza - Quick!


We spent a quick hour and a half 
at Renningers Extravaganza in Mount Dora Saturday.
Please enjoy these photos of things I spied
 in that short amount of time!


























































While Dad and I were enjoying the Florida sunshine...
...poor Mr. Flea was shoveling snow in New York.
Well, at least he can ski now!

Hope you enjoyed this long post of our quick tour...
...did you see anything you might have wanted to bring home?

That looks like a pickers paradise. (Hey good name for a blog, bet someone used it already). Nugget & his girls could use that chicken nester, I like those keys and old doors and how cute are all those paintbrushes together.

Jan said...

Shoot! I was GOING to go; I live in south Orlando. I had to go meet some folks at a park this end of town. I'd planned since Christmas to get out to Mt. Dora on Saturday. Then I just let today fly by. THANK YOU so much of sharing your photos. YES, I saw some goodies I'd have stopped and looked at. It was fun. Jan

Jill said...

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Wow! They don't have sales like that around here.

susie @ persimmon moon cottage said...

My heart was beating fast just looking at all of those treasures. The blue crock mixing bowls, the lambs with the antique picture, that pink froo-froo dress, just everything. I can't wait to see what you brought home from this wonderland. Now I must go back and enlarge each picture to study what I may have missed when I looked at it before.

Evi said...

I am going crazy picking what I want. Love sooooo many things....like the box "Zum Andenken", translated "To Remember". And the pails in the next picture, and all the childrens clothing, and, and.....
Wish I could have seen it all. Why was your stay so short. You would have had to drag me away from there.
XOXO,Evi
PS. I am going to try to call you tomorrow.

(Karen) Lisa Daley said...

What fun - especially loved the buttons ~ lol ~ thank you!

pballard said...

Oh my what didn't I see! I love the nesting box and have been watching for one here in Oregon. Thanks for sharing. We are having rain, rain and more rain! Enjoy the sun!

Susie~From My Home To Yours said...

Now I can't believe we drove right by on Saturday and didn't stop...oh well...there's always February.

I love the tramp art box and how cool that Evi was able to translate...really special!

Have a great week, and so sorry that Mr. Flea is shoveling snow. I've definitely got a touch of Spring Fever and planted some seeds today. Flowers always make me feel happy.

Hugs,
Susie

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I have been recently seeing those olive buckets in the local antique shops here and some have been turned into hanging lights.

Lisa said...

Laura,
OMG, What a great post! I have never been to that sale but it's on my bucket list. Picture after picture of glorious treasures! Anytime I see a table lined with boxes of littles filled to the brim I get kind of dizzy. That suitcase of lace was the topper! So what did you bring home?
Lisa

Imperfections said...

For months I had planned to go to Renningers but alas I had other obligations and was unable to go. Next month is the last time to catch the extravaganza until next fall so come hell or high water I'm gonna get there. I don't know how you did it in an hour and a half!

brudeblogg said...

How many treasures! :)

Leah said...

Love your pics. Thanks for sharing. :) Can't believe I've lived in this area for more than 20 years and never made it to Renningers. Your pics make it all the more enticing. Hope you enjoyed your visit!

christina said...

I really enjoyed looking through these photos. My mom and I would go to Renniger's once a year for the longest time. We made it to the November event last year and I found so many goodies. And of course, the beautiful Florida "winter" :)

Happy treasure hunting in 2012!

Can't believe you confined yourself to 1 1/2 hours. I would have been there all day. I don't sew, but that first little sewing machine was awsome.

Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage said...

I am so impressed that you found and photographed so many wonderful treasures...in such a short amount of time, Laura! It usually takes me that long to look through one decent-sized booth. ;)

Blessings,

Rae said...

Wonderful photos! I could live there!

Faye ~ Wild Rose Vintage said...

Awesome stuff!!! I wish I could see that price tag on the small sewing machine (not the Singer)...I just found one for $20 and was wondering what they are selling for. I sure could have had fun in that crochet lace and the buttons! And warm and sunshine! Thanks for the eye candy!

Dawne Boynton Polis said...

I love these fleaing trips with you! It is a little frustrating not to be able to take those lambs home to my collection, but I save so much money!

The Blue Farmhouse said...

Your photos just proves that great treasures are everywhere. I loved the blue suitcase, red peeling painted birdhouse and those old children shoes were adorable. I also spotted the old blue Reed roaster! I have one in the exact same color that I found at a Goodwill on 12/31/10 for $2.25. Thanks for sharing.

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Oh WOW Laura,
Usually when you show flea markets there are a few things that maybe I wouldn't have bought but, I think that I could have bought every single thing !!!! There's no point in me telling you the individual things that I like as I LOVE it all !! At my age I should be getting rid of things but I seem to be buying more. All I can say is that it's a good job that I don't live where you live !!
Hope that poor Mr. Flea is keeping warm and having a few brandies or scotch !! XXXX

Dottie said...

Oh my!!!! Wish I had been there. I want it all!!

Suz said...

Laura, The BIG lock caught my eye because I purchased its twin with my Christmas Gift Certificate @Jane Tylor's Cottage Garden Antiqyes in Gainesville Ga Saturday. Wouldn't it be fabulous to have a pair! Anyway I thought you might like to look at a post called Road Trip: The Incredible Jane 7-24-10 on the Sassytrash blogspot. I don't know the blogger but I know Jane and her art is amazin'. Check out her 15 ft tall angel wings that she welded together.
