Treasure Trail Finds

The last time I went out shopping was the week before Christmas when I had to find a few extra Santa mugs. Luckily, I found exactly the amount I needed to make sure each guest had one to take home with them. On that same shopping trip I found

this vintage wool goodness. Is anyone else thinking tree skirt for next year?

This wooden bead garland was just way too cool to pass up. Sigh, I love neutrals you guys.

The vintage palm oil can had me at bronze. Plus, I loved the deer on the plaque

but it was what the plaque said on the back that sold it for me.

I had quite a bit of shopping for furniture to do last week. I didn’t find the pieces I was looking for this past Monday but I was able to come home with this three-drawer dresser. I also found the luggage rack for Loblolly Manor.

I try to keep a mix of things in my booth but I’ve made a conscious effort to buy things that are representative of my style and The Crowned Goat like these three pieces.

But I know my customers like coastal things too so I’m always on the hunt for unique pieces they can decorate their beach cottage with too. This beast is crazy heavy!

You guys know I have a thing for baskets and this wicker trunk is perfection.

My Mom hasn’t seen these yet but when she does I know she’s going to want to take these off my hands.

Did I find something for myself? You know it. The top of this butter dish said, “CoCo please take me home,”

as did this goat for my gallery wall.

I also found a few new inventory items last Tuesday, like this printers drawer.

I mean look at this handle, swoon.

012815-13

Oil paintings are always popular in my booth so I bought this easel to help me display new pieces.

012815-14

I’ve told you guys I heart baskets, right?

012815-15

How cool is this fish?

It’s a little hard to tell in this picture but these shelves are going to be perfect for displays.

012815-17

I’m going to paint this bookcase white and use it for displays as well. S built a table for me this weekend and I finished painting it on Monday.

I love the treasure hunting part of this job. It’s the best. You really never know what you’re going to come across. See you guys back here tomorrow. I’ve made a Valentine craft you won’t want to miss.

Many blessings,

CoCo

  1. What great finds!!! Each time I scrolled down to the next photo, I got more jealous! I mean you really hit the motherload. Do you read Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series? The plaque could be straight from the book!
    Hugs!

    1. I know Angie, these are going to be so hard to give up. I hope I can actually do it ha ha! No, I don”t read her but I appreciate the suggestion and will definitely check it out. I’m always on the hunt for a good book.

  2. Holy cow! You have outdone yourself on the shopping trail. The pieces you found are fabulous and high quality look! I want so many of these items, as I know your customers will too. My personal faves are the deer plaque, printers tray, whale and of course the ceramic cow! I’m really interested in the cute puppy – how much will she be?

    1. Oh my little Tally poo poo is priceless. She just wanders around the yard like she owns the place. I’m just thankful she follows commands now and comes back home when I call her. At 14 that’s a very big step. Thanks for loving all of my finds. They’re going to be hard to let go of 🙂

    I would be so broke if I lived close enough to shop in your booth! Love it all! Great finds❤️

    1. We would have so much fun, I too may be broke if I don’t start actually putting all of these things in the booth 🙂

    1. Aww thanks Trisha, I know what you mean I love that easel too. I pick up oil paintings here and there that sell well so I was going to use the easel as a display piece for them.

  4. Coco, WOW this is better than Treasure Tuesdays for sure. I can’t believe how much you found. That dear plaque and goat art are perfect for you too. so many great finds. You’re gonna be busy girl…xoxo

    1. The only thing better than Treasure Tuesdays is Treasure Tuesdays with chocolate cake!

  5. Wow! That Tartan plaque! Are you a fan of the Outlander series? Fraser is the name of the clan of the main male character in the books. There’s a whole bunch of fans that would kill to have found that! Kill? Yes. Possibly.

    1. Karen I don’t think I’ve ever heard of the Outlander series but I will definitely look it up! I loved it as soon as I saw it too. You really never know what you’re going to find on the treasure trail. You crack me up lady!
