A Few Booth Pictures

Here are some pictures of my booth at Scotland Yard. I'm not real fond of oak, but I really love this oak chest and book case, it's two piece's, I found the chest and then the book shelf and married them. They matched perfect, I love the hard ware on the chest and the clean lines of it, I think it's a masculine looking piece. I also like the bamboo bar set, perfect for a small apartment, would look great in a cabin or lake house.

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

I was really lucky and found a whole bunch of these vintage clocks which I think are so cool!! I came home and wound them all up and I thought my husband was going to shoot me.. :) Not to mention my dog, she kept barking at them.

These beautiful dresser jars with sterling tops. The one one the left is a Waterford jar, it has a seahorse on the top, it's very pretty. The other is an older one, it's also very beautiful. I just love these jars, they look really pretty in a grouping sitting on top of a mirror, elegant looking!

Some shabby chic items...

Lots of french items, they do really well at the show. I do like the trays..

I love this vintage bubble gum machine and it has the original keys with it. I remember going to the grocery store with my mother as a kid, she would always give me five pennies for the bubble gum machine, and I would cramp all five in my mouth. Do they even have bubble gum machines now? I don't see them in the grocery stores, or it may be that I don't look for them like when I was a kid...

I think this locker is so cool! These are great for mud rooms to store shoes, baseball gloves, scarves and gloves. There are great for kids rooms, fun and useful piece.
What did you store in your locker? I ask my husband that question and he said, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that my mother made me every single day that he would try and trade at lunch time, and the sad thing is nobody else wanted his peanut butter and jelly sandwich either. But you know what, he still eats peanut and jelly sandwiches, but now he puts potato chips on top of the peanut butter. Don't ask! :)
I had a poster of Davie Jones (Partridge Family), I thought he was so good looking! haha

I love this white iron shelf, it has three glass shelf's. This could be use in a number of different places. It would be great in a bathroom, or a porch with plants, kitchen for display items. It's just a great piece.

Great old picture frame I turned into a chalk board.

I love this old garden statue, it's mine and I've had it for years. It's looks great with a fern sitting on top! It came from a garden out of England. It's about 3 and a half to 4 feet tall, very heavy... It's time to let her go!

These are really cool, I couldn't get a good picture of them, but there antique coin banks, ones from England and three are from Moscow.

This screen was black, didn't like it black, so I decided to paint it this creamy white. And that's when everything went wrong, I thought my husband was going to DIVORCE me.. But that will be for another time.... I'm still licking my wounds over that one.

These are a few of the items for the show..... More to come!

Great Weekend

These are a few pictures from the show this weekend. We had a great show, we did really well, we were very pleased. My partner Susan had a fantastic show, "Way To Go Girl".... She has great stuff anyway! We had heard that this was not a good month, but there was a really good turn out, and like I say we did really well.

We want to thank all of our friends who can out to support us, we really do appreciate you guys, THANKS!!! Karen came out with her beautiful daughter "Chloe", she's 5 months old, and she's the best baby, we had a good time playing with her. Karen I still have that french chair you loved so, I will give you a really good deal on. :)

And Wendy and Ashley came out, they had family from out of town with them. And I think those girls did some serious shopping! They had this little puppy with them that was so cute, it had the sweetest face, I wanted to take it home with me...

We have made friends with some of the nicest dealers, they have all been super nice.

Looking Forward to next month's Show!!!

This is sparky our favorite customer.. He's a 5 month old Jack Russell terrier, he was so cute. Do you remember the big black iron bird cage I had? Well sparky's dad bought that for him for his new home, and he just loved it!! Would you say sparky was a little spoiled?

Pictures Of Our Booth At Scott's

Were pleased with the way our booth turned out this time, we think we've got some pretty cool stuff. Last month it took us over 8 hours to set up, this time we were pretty much set up in about 2 and a half to 3 hours. We hope it's a really good show, hope to sell out. Check us out if you can, were in the South building K7!

Have a great weekend!!

More Treasures

I think this chair is so cool! It's an antique theatre chair, I just love all the detail work on the sides, and it's very heavy, solid iron. What a great conversation piece.. It's hard to find just one, they usually come in a row of three or more. Love it!

The thing in the back with all the ferns on it is a plant rack, but can be used for many things, very cool.

Love these old iron gates, makes a great back drop for a flower bed.

This is the back off of an antique buggy from the 1800's. Again I thought it was cool. Any ideas what to do with it? Maybe hanging on the wall with mirrors around it??

I thought this pocket book was so cute I just had to buy it!
