stuff I got in Florida

We shopped all over.

ALL OVER.
(even though the reason we were there was to attend a wedding.)
Not just in Florida, but also in Georgia, and North and South Carolina.  

And I got:
cute dog bottle
purchased in the flea market in the parking lot of the Weeki Wachee Mermaids attraction,
which was less than a mile from our hotel.

 The next few items came from Renninger's in Mt. Dora

early 19th century scherenschnitte of Frederick the Great,
his palace, his pooches, his windmill, and a few bars from one of his musical compositions

Murano glass toucan

violin ashtray

this beauty once worked at Sebring's famous Cathouse Restaurant.
Judging from the tray, I'm guessing she was a busser. 

Another thing I got at Mt. Dora was an old mariachi musician's suit.  That's still in the car.

This old University of Florida Gators gator
came from a co-op north of where we were staying.
I also bought two ties at this place.  Photos not yet edited.

And now the items from elsewhere in the South (although I'm pretty sure we stopped at one in Ocala, and maybe bought something): 

An art nouveau beauty,
probably by Schafer & Vater

This rare and fascinating billy goat cream pitcher 
looks WAY better in person.
