Demijohn Heaven

10.20.2010

When I went to the bloggers brunch on Saturday we went junk antique shopping after we ate. Asheville sure does have some wonderful places to shop. We went to several antique malls in just a few hours time and I could not believe all the great stuff these shops had.



The first place we went to was The Screen Door.


The prices were better in that shop than they are here where I live.


I loved this bell shaped cloche and the bottle in the metal holder.
 All this was in the first booth when we walked in. I had to break myself away so I wouldn't run out
of time.


I have a thing for large clocks and I would have loved to bring home one of these.


I don't have my photos in order so I am not sure which shop all the rest of the pictures are from. 


Look at that chippy goodness.


I have never seen so many demijohns before. I was in demijohn heaven.


Very good prices on most of them, too. This large one was only $65!


Lots of moonshine jugs and other pottery.


Old crusty baskets.


This booth was at The Screen Door. Everyone was loving this booth. Lots of Swedish and Belgium design.





Wonderful settee and there was the most scrumptious cast iron twin bed, but there was a couple
looking at it and I was not able to get a picture. You can see the headboard in the background. 


Love the hanging lantern.


There were a lot of these wooden things for sale and very cheap.


Love that armoire and that table.


Huge old birdcage


 $38  for two shed antlers tied together in this booth. I think I will find some for free or a whole box of them on ebay for less.


Love this lamp made from a canister.


I love this large secretary and hutch with old wavy glass.


Great bench made out of a bed.


Great old piece for extra storage.


Close up of that piece. I googled Iten Biscuit Co. and found quite a bit of information. The company is circa 1905 and made animal crackers and other crackers.


This area was like stepping back in time.


I wish I had bought some of these old letters.


Seemed like every new shop we went in had a bunch of these old demijohns.


Yes, it was demijohn heaven.





More great jars


Really would have loved to bring this home. Love the lead glass doors.

Hope that wasn't photo overload.

Thanks again to Penny for taking us to the most wonderful shops.

I will show you what came home with me soon.

Enjoy the rest of your week. I am going to go get me some grandbaby love.
Don't miss my giveaway up at the top of my sidebar. Just click on the pic to go to the original post.

Y'all come back now,

KIM

  18. Anita, thanks for asking. They checked her blood this morning and she is a little jaundice. They will recheck it at 4 and see if it has gone down. If not she has to stay a little longer and get light therapy. They said the best way to get it down is to have a good poop. I sure hope she does. I was all packed and ready to go and now I will just wait and see.

  19. Heaven, pure heaven! I could $pend some time in a place like that;0)

    I also wanted to tell you that your new little granddaughter is an angel! Blessings to your family!

  27. oooh, I love shopping in antique malls like this. I will tell you those ball jars are very expensive around here. So much so that I don't buy them although I love them. I also have not come across many demijohns.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks for sharing your pictures. Tagging along with all of these wonderful bloggers would be so much fun.

  29. I learn something new everyday. I didn't even know what they were! Some great stuff in there. Remember the days when "chippy" was not good?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh wow I saw several things I would love to have! wonderful shop!! what did you bring home??

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well I guess I know where all the demi-johns are now, cause they sure aren't around here! That looks like a wonderful place to visit. I know you must have really enjoyed it. So what exactly were those round thingys that there were lots of? LOL! Sorry to hear about the jaundice, my first one had and we had to have a little jaundice bed sent out to the house after we got home. It was so weird. It was like he had to spend a few hours in a tanning bed each day, poor thing. I hope they won't have to do that. It's scary for a new parent. I will keep yall in my prayers!

  34. That looks to have been an awesome time. What a great bunch of shops you visited. Be sure and get lots of grandbaby love. Thanks for visiting.

  37. Wow I didn't realize you took so many pictures. It's like a catalog. Take care.

  38. I visited Penny in September and was so amazed when we went to the Screen Door. Isn't it awesome? I could have gone home with one of each item I saw!!! Such a beautiful place. I'm sorry we did not get to visit more at Penny's. It was a wonderful visit, but just not long enough. Especially since I only got to look at the Screen Door for a short time and then had to head out to go to a football game for Parent's weekend at my daughter's college. Hopefully we can all get together again sometime. I look forward to following your blog and getting to know you better. Love & blessings from NC!

  39. Oh my - these pictures made me want to shop so badly!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Looks like fun, I can't wait to see what you bought. So, they are demijohns even without the basket part? I'd never heard of them until you started showing them here.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Kim, It would have been hard for me to pull myself away from these shops! It's funny that I saw lots of demijohns in Destin and now you show all these in Asheville. I've never seen a single one in Richmond except my GW find!! I can't wait to see what you brought home with you.
    Hugs, Sherry

  42. I wish I'd been there. I've seen two large putty and mustard tone stoneware jars that would have gone home with me.

    Thanks for taking so many pics. Loved every one of them!!

  43. Thanks for taking us along...great photos to browse!!

  44. I missed this post before somehow. What a neat place to visit. Did you end up buying anything? I would have loved some letters, too....and I thought that bed that you could see in the background was really something. It looks like there were lots of choices for all kinds of tastes there. I think the booth with all the European stuff was the best though. Diana

  47. Kim, I will be visiting Ashville over the Thanksgiving holiday, do you remember the name of the antique store that you went to? It looks amazing. Have a wonderful weekend.

  48. Pam, we went to several, but most of my pics are from The Screen Door antique mall. I am sure you can probably google it.
