this weekends new "old" finds



This weekends finds consist of two small oval braided rugs,a checkered mat,an enamel pail,candlestick lamp,antique quilt,chrome birdie,heavy ladle,6 pewter teaspoons,6 pewter tablespoons,pewter cream and sugar,arched mirror,tool caddy,an early highchair in original paint,a small desk with drawer,small primitive table,plate rack,and 5 early chairs.Also a cool fish carved in 1994,and a woodbox with a shelf (perfect for shoes)
I can just imagine what we missed out on...the sale was long over when we got there,but then the price was right!!


We definitely scored some amazing finds Saturday night,after working till almost 7pm!Some things have made it to the shop others are still at home..All items came from the same house,it was a 25 year collection. More pieces coming soon!stay tuned...we also had to say goodbye to a piece I didn't care if I ever sold.This seems to be the hardest part for me,the poor couple that bought this corner cupboard we're quizzed as if they were adopting my baby,(where's it going?what are you planning to do with it?and will you be cutting,painting or even worse stripping it?)..I have to know that my favourites are going to a good home,and in this case it went to a better place,a gorgeous century home on Ontario Street (still in Bowmanville),they are using it in their front entrance,for storage, and leaving it as is...phew..Perhaps I will have to quit buying only what I love....nah...love it and leave it..something better always comes along..and besides I do have bills to pay this isn't just a hobby LOL :P
