I have had a really great week gathering new vintage finds for my booth at Homewood Antiques and Marketplace. I am trying to get my space ready for the big Red Balloon Sale that will be happening this Saturday. I’ve been struggling getting work done over the past two weeks while I have been working on my new site as well as helping my twelve year old prepare for her big shows this weekend. She has been atDrama Camp over the past few weeks preparing for “Monopoly, Its Your Turn,” a production put on by the camp. It’s a big deal around here and we are really excited for her. Anyway, I’ve got to get this space together by tomorrow because my weekend is swamped. If you get a chance to drop by the store this weekend, I will have 20% off in my booth and most other dealers will have some sort of special sale. They always do a great job packing it full. Here are a few pictures of some of the smalls I will be bringing in tomorrow. I have a french dresser too but I am not quite done working on it. I’m trying to use it to put together a little video tutorial for you all on how to use the Crackle Tex I talk about all the time. I hope to have it finished up in the next week or so.
I love these vintage post cards, especially of the one from the Worlds Fair in New York from 1939.
I found these horse hair brushes, great for buffing wax after you have painted…….
I’m tempted to keep the Samuel Chamberlain etching of “Sunlit Tower.” I love the black frame and it is in great shape.
I picked up quite a few pieces of perfectly tarnished silver as well as an antique grain sack.
If you are local, I hope you get the chance to come by the Red Baloon Sale. You can find the address and phone number here.
