April 23, 2014Antique Show Finds!
I was originally going to start bringing you a reupholstery tutorial this week, however I broke my arm at derby practice last Wednesday. The chair reupholstery tutorial will still be coming, however it will have to wait until I get my cast off or figure out how to reupholster one-handed, whichever comes first!
I went to an antique show here this past weekend, it’s one of the larger ones around these parts. I don’t know if the vendors had sympathy for my broken arm, but they all gave me deals without even asking on what I bought! I am pretty excited about my finds, so here they are!
I was super excited to find this lamp, as I have been looking for one of this type for some time. This is one of the ones that is meant to clip on to a headboard for reading, however I wanted it to clip on to my vanity mirror so I can have a bit more light when I do my makeup. This one fits the bill perfectly!
This is probably my most exciting find. I have been after one of these Kromex spice sets for quite some time. I know they do usually come up on eBay pretty frequently, but shipping to Canada usually makes the price pretty prohibitive. Last time I saw one at a show, it was being snatched up by someone else, so I was super excited to find this one!
It’s in fantastic condition – I love that the rack portion is long and skinny, rather than the two shorter row rack style.
The spice jars are in fantastic shape as well – I am actually glad I didn’t get the set I saw previously, as this set is in much better condition! As I already have a set of Kromex canisters, this really excites me.
Totally not mid-century, but I couldn’t pass this up, as Ella loves My Little Pony, and it reminds me of when I was a kid.
Any of you have any great antique show finds lately? I would love to hear what you’ve found!
