More fantastic finds

I was rummaging through some of my stock, as we are getting another booth at the end of this month, and I came across some of our latest finds, and just had to share. I hate to let most of what I find go into our booth, but I always do, and I don't hold onto things unless they are then considered ours, and for our home decor purposes. All these things will go into the booth, but sharing with you, helps me to catalog them, and show these treasures with the world!  I hope you love these as much as I did when I found them!

This candlestick below, is perfectly chippy, weathered and has been heavily loved. I could not pass up all that chippy-ness (its hard for me to pass up anything chippy actually)

 I just love these old claw foot tub feet. This one is very neat. With the swirly design, the color, and then the fact that it has actual carved out claws surrounding the ball at the bottom... this is a beauty.

So, this is something simple... a rusty ole industrial bin with adjustable compartments. Simple, but fantastic... its as rusty as I like it, and with the adjustable compartments, it is fantastic.

So, this little gem.... Doesn't it just make you wonder what little child played with them? Sat on the sidewalk and drew a hopscotch board with them? What mother gave their $.10 for these little guys so their kids could sit outside and draw pretty pictures on the cement? Fantastic find if you ask me!  

Remember that the most valuable antiques are dear old friends.

  3. How amazing for that old chalk box to be still intact - it's sweet!

  4. love the claw foot!!! and i know what you mean about wanting to keep everything! my rule is this: if i really want to hold it, i do so for a few days, weeks, sometimes months. usually i can let it go after that. and if i can't? well, then it becomes mine for keeps. but i have to send one thing out of the house to replace the item i kept. it seems to work for me!
