Thrill of the Hunt

3.25.2011

I made a couple of trips to a couple of antique/flea markets this week and found a few good buys.





 I don't think this pitcher is very old, but I love the shape of it and the price was $10.


 Love this huge wicker food cover for only $8.


  It has a braided handle.


My sister found this yesterday and emailed me to tell me where she found it. I went today and bought it.
Thanks Sis.


Someone did a terrible paint job on it. I wish it was the original patina, but for only $15 I bought it anyway. The prices of these old scales have really climbed.


My favorite find this week was this antique rooster print framed in this great old wood frame.
I gave $45 for it which I didn't think was too bad.

I will share where all these lovelies are soon.

Have a wonderful weekend. I hear it is supposed to rain here all weekend.
Hope it is better where you are.

  6. We had rain and warmer weather last week, but alas we got dumped on with snow again! So much for spring! Love the scale. I'm still looking for a vintage one. Have a great weekend. Our oldest has his Confirmation this weekend, so lots of cooking, cleaning and company!

  8. At least you're having some good luck "hunting". I'm about to give up my old haunts and try some greener pastures. I like the wicker food cover. Bet you could stain/paint that too. :) Maybe that gray finish? Have a nice weekend. I think it's supposed to rain though.

  18. Kim, you can't have too many white pitchers - old or not. That scale is a great find even if you don't like the finish. I would love to find one for my kitchen.

    Enjoy your goodies!

  24. Great finds, Kim. I spent the day at Round Top yesterday and came home with a small Red Cliff white ironstone piece. I've wanted to find a piece of this since first seeing it on Debbie's blog. Love the shape and little cluster of grapes. Another piece of white ironstone, a few blue Mason jars, and some other treasures came home with me. It was a fun day.
    Now, send some of that weekend rain our direction. We could use it.
    Hope you enjoy the weekend even with the rain. ~ Sarah

  31. Love the finds!
    That rooster would have come home with me too.... great price!

  32. Great finds! I wonder if you couldn't take that slapped on coat of paint off the scale? Could you try a bit of steel wool in a spot it wouldn't show? I have taken paint off a couple of items that way.

  34. I'm with the majority...the wicker food cover is by far the best deal and steal...love it...wicker never goes out of style and that piece is very versatile. Thanx for sharing. You should check out my shopping spree in Birmingham, AL a couple of weeks ago on my blog, Tiff

  39. Great finds, Kim. What a unique scale rooster print! And, you're so right about the scales ... I went to grab one at a local antique store the other day ... it was $50(!!!). Needless, to say, I put it back down and walked away. Have a great weekend. *Becca*
