This dealer always has a great mix of tempting things.
What a well thought out vignette, with the Deacon's Bench, Parchesi board, and primitive bench.
This is a lousy photo of a bed with great paint.
Real Post Office cubbies!
If I didn't already have too much stuff, I probably would have bought these drawers and found a use for them.
The paint on this Scandanavian trunk was beautiful!
I loved the colors and designs on these wool felt pillows.
The great graphics on the cheese sign caught my eye, then I noticed the zinc-topped cupboard below it.
I need some inspiration for a paint project that I have planned, and I found some antique thread cabinets that had really wonderful graphics.
I am always on the look out for interesting greyhound items.
A 1925 print.
I see this bust from time to time in magazine ads.
This Royal Doulton figurine was a bit pricy.
What did I buy, you ask?
A vintage baby bottle (to use as a bud vase), a tiny greyhound figurine, a pair of vintage medical scissors, and a silver heart charm.
I have never seen a little greyhound like this ... it's only 2 inches tall.
The silver hearts will look great on a leather necklace. They each say "Your heart is within my heart.
The final buy of the day was something that I have been hunting for for a couple months ... a handmade Persian rug to go underneath the antique oak chairs in our family room bay. It's imperfect and I LOVE it!!
As I walked through the show yesterday, and sifted through the photos this morning, I saw a definite trend. I find that I tend to be attracted to things that are what they are (if that makes sense). Things that are restored or have a quick coat of paint slapped on them don't appeal to me at all. Give me honest wear, and good design, and I'll be a happy girl!
