The Scott Antique Market

This little guy just happened to catch my eye two Saturdays ago at the Scott Antique Market. Isn't it cute? There were trays upon trays of enough shiny things to blind you, and I just stumbled across this little hair pin in the ten dollar pile.

So much silver.
Very old stirrups. When I see old tack, I always wonder how someone managed to ride a horse with it.
