Vintage Finds and Announcement!

It’s time to share all of the fun stuff that I brought home with me from my weekend away in Door County!

Boxwood wreath (not old, but cute), vintage tins, a vintage doorknob that I’m going to wire up to create a photo holder

An awesome vintage purse that was my first purchase of the day and it was only $5!  I handed the money to the vendor over the fence before we were let in.  I love this purse!  I don’t get to use a real purse very often anymore because my usual every day purse these days is a diaper bag.  But we have an event next Saturday night and I fully intend on using this beauty!

A little flow blue saucer that was only $5.00 because it has a minor chip in it.  I’ll take it, thank you very much.

Stoneware . . .

Sacks with wonderful color . . . I have about 8 sacks now and I’m thrilled.  I’m going to use them to upholster a few chairs and to create some pillows, but I will continue to collect them.

An adorable antique white mini hutch from, once again, Gracie’s Cottage.  I bought it to use in my booth to display smaller items at the Elkhorn Flea Market on August 14th.  Yes, you heard that right!  I’m setting up for the Elkhorn Flea Market and I’m super excited.  If you recall, I had been thinking about hosting my own sale or renting space at an antique mall to sell some of the items I’ve collected over the years and I mentioned that in my Estate Sales post.  I called Elkhorn and there are still outdoor spaces available, so I’m snatching one up.  If you’re planning on being there on August 14th, please let me know.  I’d love to see you!

In fact, you can see this hutch and my chippy bench underneath it that I purchased from Gracie’s Cottage in this photo on the left-hand side, which I found in her post recapping the market:

I also purchased some awesome vintage ceramic mugs that came from an airline.  They don’t look like much here, but they are really good and chunky:

Here’s a few close-ups of parts of the lamp.  There were two of these beauties and I only bought one.  Now I’m kicking myself for not buying them both!

My favorite, though, is this vintage bottle carrier.  I’ve been wanting one for a long time and Chippy Shabby had this cutie that I just couldn’t pass up.

It now resides on our kitchen counter holding some of my collected antique silverware and other little trinkets.  It will be super useful to use when guests come for dinner!

I love the juxtaposition of the soft daisy petals and delicate china against the hard metal of the carrier.

However, not everything I purchased this weekend was vintage.  I bought two of the adorable boxwood wreaths . . . one is hanging above our kitchen sink now . . .

along with the “ABCs of Marriage” plaque from, oddly enough, Chelsea Antiques.  My favorite is the letter Z:  AmaZe Your Mother-in-Law.  Cute.  So how am I doing? (*smile*).
