In Texas, it’s Roundtop; in Massachusetts, it’s Brimfield; in Maine it’s Union. These are the sites for big outdoor antiques fairs. Now, all of the stuff can be a bit overwhelming for me, but there’s always something that catches my eye, either because it reminds me of someone or because it would be fun to have. Take a look and see if there’s anything for you.
These planters are just too fun, and if they hadn’t already been sold I would have been tempted to take them home.
Typewriters seem to be a popular decorating item these days, and this one would be a great accessory.
When I see anything that would fit a French country decor, I think of my daughter. I know she could find a place for these pieces.
Oh, do I need this for those blueberry picking forays
and wouldn’t these look great hanging on a wall
or this….now that would really be an eye-catcher!
I would have bought these gourds to add to my collection that are used for fall tablescapes, but the vendor was so unfriendly and disinterested in making a sale that I left them there.
What I really wanted were these handmade tin hats from the 1800’s. They have that touch of whimsy that I love, but the price ($1200 each) kept them in their place.
Most of the time I come home empty handed, but it’s fun to look. What I enjoy most about antiquing is spending time with a friend. I’m glad you were along.
Check out Seasonal Sunday to see how others are spending their day.
