My furniture stash is completely gone and for the past two weekends I’ve been shopping for new inventory. It takes continued shopping to be able to find great pieces at affordable prices. On my first trip I didn’t find a lot of furniture but I was able to find a few smalls and lots of baskets, which have become a signature item in my booth.
Serendipitously, I went out on St. Patrick’s Day and the very first item I bought was this horseshoe. It was buried at the bottom of a box of old tools. The vintage picnic basket has blue and white ticking fabric on the inside.
I also found this awesome picture. I have no idea who this man is but I love the way he’s sitting at his desk like he means business. The calendar on the wall says 1902. I’m pretty sure this is going to be a keeper.
I love this vintage frame. It has tons of character and I was able to get a great price on it.
I know the cup will be for sale as will the milk glass but the roosters napkin rings may be a little harder to let go of.
I picked up the pillow and the small framed horse print for my mom. You guys know how much I love plaid blankets. This one will be great for picnics. For reals, how crazy is that bulldog aftershave bottle from Avon?
I plan to give both of those stools a makeover but they’re the perfect size to use in my booth to stack things and use for displays. I can totally picture my mom using them in her bathroom with rolled up towels by her big bathtub too. The little red cross box was a fun find but it had some interesting bottles and smells inside. I couldn’t pass this sweet little pillow up either with all that patchwork. It’s hard to believe those pillowcases are still in the original Kleen Wink bag. I used them on my spring inspired front porch.
I pretty much hit the mother lode of baskets.
How cute is this bird perch? It’s already been taken to the booth too.
This huge wood slice is actually a lazy susan. I must have been on a bell kick because I found an old cowbell and a dinner bell on that same shopping trip.
Since most of my customers like coastal items, I try to pick up as many as I can.
That vintage thermos is going to be hard to let go; it’s perfect for picnics or the beach.
The wooden fish has metal fins and the wicker wrapped bottle has a Spanish label.
I was able to score this awesome metal cabinet. I can’t decide if I should paint it or not though. It definitely needed a good cleaning before I took it to the booth.
I picked up a few other things that I haven’t unpacked yet but all in all it was definitely a successful trip.
