I've slowly been back to the hunt the past week, I have two Southern Crossing Antique Mall Booths now (hopefully I'll just have one big booth soon, on the waiting list for that) and more behind-the-scenes selling developments. A small haul for now but you'll see a HUGE one soon.
Found another beautiful coffee carafe, this time without a percolator inside. I tend to do well with these online. See it On Etsy.
I was driving back from the post office when I saw a time capsule 1940s-50s brick house with a big pile of 1960s rubble in the front, gaudy linoleum, mustard yellow shag carpet and era appropriate built ins all stacked in a sad dusty pile out front. I harvested these ornaments from a tree (sadly not of the desired aluminum variety) and took home a couple of chairs that sold before I could take a photo.
And how 'bout another gorgeous owl jar? This is perfect for holding pet food and sugar, nice and air-tight.
I try to resist any planters these days but this dark violet glazed one was so beautiful it had to come home with me.
I've never seen one approaching this color, beautiful piece.
And how 'bout some beautiful post cards? I was gifted these after a vintage sale, I also received a big, beautiful doll house but I gifted it before I got any photos. I like how these ones have a painterly vibe, like someone painted over photographs? Very beautiful. I'd love to see Washington during cherry blossom season like the card on the far right showcases.
And I loved these 1960s museum post cards of modern art pieces. Beautiful art!
The story behind my new fruit basket's pretty funny. I live on the second floor of an old brownstone building, above a corner store. I was loading my car full of objects for my antique mall booth when the store owner handed me this basket display saying, "You want this? You can sell it, or get rid of it, or whatever it is that you do..." Hilarious. I'm an enigma to the neighbors who rarely see me leave without toting random "junk".
And a final fun find, how 'bout this bulldog? I always scoop up unique ones for my boyfriend whenever I see them, they remind me of Dozer, his Old English bulldog.
And a fav find is a gorgeous retro lamp shade I finally broke down and bought from Southern Crossing. It's hard to find these and they really make an impact in a space. I want a big collection of them to display and sell! The base isn't for sale and it's one I've had for years now.
And now back to my forever-process of listing/cleaning things/organizing/writing... I have MUCH MORE vintage recently scored that you'll see next week. E-mail me if you see anything you'd like to buy in today's post!
