Monday was our hottest day yet this year and this week. So what to do to escape the heat in this house with no air? Go antiquing of course in a nice cool store. Sounded good to me and I'm taking you with me.
Just look at those details.
I about gasped when I saw this. Y'all know I love old lidded baskets and have a few, but I have never seen one like this.
It's long and narrow and the tag said it is a rare vintage artillery ammo trunk. I opened it up and it has dividers in it, but I didn't get a picture of that. It's so cool. This would make the coolest coffee table or it would look nice at the foot of a bed.
I love everything in this booth, but again pricey stuff. I love those old garden cloches, but I just can't pay over $500 for one!
This was an unusual scale.
Of course there were a variety of crafted flags like this one made out of galvanized metal.
Trapper's basket very similar to mine, but it is $299! I paid $70 for mine.
I don't know why I am drawn to chairs, but I loved this old Windsor chair. One of the arms had been repaired and I knew if I bought it Mr. Savvy would point that out. It really doesn't bother me.
There were two of these for sale.
Look at these fabulous old French chests! Loved the wood and carvings and would love to get one of them, but they are sold as a pair. These would make great nightstands if you have the room.
A set of gorgeous twin beds.
My other weakness.....benches.
Nice Champagne crate. I like these, but wouldn't know where to use it and it was another pricey piece.
Did anything come home with me? Yes, one small thing at a really good price.
I will share it soon.
See anything you like?
Fingers crossed that our air conditioning gets fixed today!!! I can't wait to clean this dirty house!
Have a fabulous weekend and a very Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!
