The Thrill of the Hunt

The season of outdoor antique shows is finally here, and rarely a weekend goes by that I don't try to hit at least one of these great venues. Here are some of my finds from this weekend! Above is a nice early blue and white platter, with some age yellowing, which in my eyes makes it even more charming!

Shown here is a wonderful majolica compote in spring-y shades of blue and green, and definitely an early piece.

Shown here is a wonderful architectural fragment that could be the centerpiece for a great grouping---- along with prints, mirrors or other architectural items. Finished in old white paint, it measure approximately 24" tall.

This is one of a set of four of darling bamboo folding chairs. Although probably not antiques by true definition, they are definitely vintage, and, at only $140.00 for the set, a great buy for some extra seating!

A very interesting brass and black iron scale with old paint detail and a fish-tail like shape, this could be an interesting stand for a plant or small basket of fruit in your kitchen.
I couldn't resist this darling Spaniel dog with a "feather in his cap"!! ----definitely someone's loved and vintage pet.

A lovely plate with a ship painting in the center, and the best buy of the day at only $12.00!

Stop in soon to see these and lots of other newly-arrived treasures. And don't forget about our Summer Sale next Friday and Saturday (June 10 & 11)...... 20% off on everything (except antiques), and for one time only, this sale includes an additional 20% discount on the Sale Corner!!

Hope to see you then!
