Hillbilly Mall Haul

Last weekend I visited my friend in Dayton and we went on a small road trip to Darke County, Ohio. We saw Annie Oakley’s burial place, and went to the small but lovely Garst Museum, full of the history of Darke County, which includes 2 historic treaties between Native Americans and white governments, Annie Oakley of course, a collection of old farm equipment, and more.

After our learning for the day, we went to the only antique store that was still open, with the promising name Hillbilly Mall Flea Market. This is one of those places that rents out stalls to various vendors. It was an odd collection of vintage furniture, glassware, old but not very valuable collectibles, and in one stall they were selling brand new toothpaste and other toiletries. My friend I figured the owners of that one must be extreme couponers getting rid of their overflow. The best part about this place is the hunt for hidden treasure and the fact that everything was CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP.

How cheap? Well I got this cute wicker chair for $10:

It’s a small guy, and it has a hole in the back, although it is less noticeable in real life than in the photo. But I thought for $10 it was totally worth it.

Here it is in my living room:

I haven’t decided if this will be its regular home yet, but I like it for now.

If you are ever in Greenville, OH consider a trip to the Hillbilly Mall, you never know what you will find. They also sell fishing tackle and old tools, so if you are trying to build up a collection of those for an industrial or steampunk look, you will not be disappointed.

Hope you are having good luck thrifting!
