Tuesday, June 22, 2010's now official, I am going to TEXAS!

Wow, I can't believe my dream is finally coming true... Wendy Ms. Wendy's Antiques, Sharon and I are headed to Texas to sell our wares at the Warrenton Antique Preview Show in September.

We have all talked about it from time to time and Sharon and I even planned a trip a few years back but never planned far enough ahead.

After several days of selling we will be heading to the Marburger Farms and Round Top Antique shows to buy or at least to ogle all of the fabulous booths. I can tell you there are so many talented vendors at this show, the booths themselves are a work of art.

When you get a chance check out the blogs of these talented folks who along with hundreds of others makes the whole trip worthwhile...

I know it has been a while since our last blog post, I feel like time is getting away from me and there are not enough hours in a day!
I gave up my space down at High Cotton in Woodbury not for any reason but not having enough time.
If you have not been down there yet, it is an incredible store with lots of treasures to be found.
The Plum Tree is filled to the brim with lots of primitive furniture pieces
The bench below measures 8 -1/2" feet long, it is circa 1850's. Used in a primitive church, when preaching was over, the back flipped up and it made into a harvest table for Sunday dinners at church.
Each end of the bench has hand forged hardware . There are bolts that slide in to each end and the center when being used as a bench and when turned up the end bolts slide into the sides for support.
This bench is quite a unique find and very rare.

I have just completed a new group of vintage look belt buckles

These are all one of a kind

Here is something you don't see every day. This beautiful cedar chest was covered in brown paint when I found it. I had no idea the jewel I would find once I cleaned it up. It is a Roos Sweetheart chest in an Art Deco design, the top back piece has a clock with a brass surround featuring the signs of the zodiac. On either side of the clock and down the front of the chest itself is the most beautiful wood inlay. The inside is clean and all cedar lined, plus it has a drawer in the bottom for extra storage. Original electric clock has been converted to a battery operated.


Need I say more?

Great old collection of rug beaters

Early blanket chest in original shade of bittersweet

This is one of my favorite pieces of all that I found. It is an early 1800's corner cupboard with wonderful old blue/green paint inside. It has a wood latch at the bottom and more shelves for storage. All hand forged hardware.

This early jelly cupboard is in wonderful condition and actually almost came home with me for my kitchen but it wouldn't fit the space. I just love the color and would look great with the doors open displaying your vintage quilt collection.

If you have not seen the movie The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock, you may not be aware of these watches. They are inspired by the watch that Sandra is wearing in the movie. Besides the rainbow of colors shown here, we also have brown, black and white which will be in this week.

Only $15.00 each

If you are looking for a piece of furniture to fit into a small space, this little marble top piece would be perfect. It would make a great end table next to a sofa or night stand with lots of little drawers for storage.

Another early primitive piece, this dry sink has a zinc liner.

Some of you may be aware that I have Lisa Souers website listed on my favorite blogs list, well now I carry her wonderful line of handmade jewelry. Each piece contains original pieces of paper from vintage books, so no two are alike. I love to layer two or three pieces together!

I just brought in two new dealers to the store that create some of the most beautiful jewelry I have seen. This line is completely hand beaded, the work that is put into her designs are unbelievable and she only uses the best beads and natural materials she can find.

The other new line of jewelry is also handmade and features, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, anklets and key chains from fun to funky... they have been a big hit.
