Sweet Vintage Pickins

Funny how I dont have the energy to regroup after Brimfield but I have the energy to shop :-)
And shop I did this past week...2 auctions (one an all day auction at a gorgeous old Inn outside of Madison New York )...a regular antique auction...a town wide garage sale in Deerfield New York and the best Barn sale a girl who loves french and shabby chic could ever dream of in Poland New York (you know where Poland Springs water comes from)

I won't gloat that I woke up early and acutally thought it was an hour later than it was at the last sale...the antique gods were on my side I was alone with the all pretties for over an hour before the next shopper appeared and my pile was at the each new person appeared I had to keep saying I am sorry thats sold :-)....ok I said I wouldn't gloat sorry about that...a pic of the barn sale on the second day ( I had to go back to refill my truck it didnt all fit the first time around) ok there I go gloating again lol!    

here are some pics of my favorite items and

a great old wood plank bench this is heavy!! but now already dressed with a basket of flowers on my front lawn

I bought this set at the last minute I dont know how I missed it....not complete but service for 4 with tea pot creamer and sugar
I am so into the blues

I love french cabriole legs on furniture that's a weakness of mine and at this sale I bought 8 tables and some chairs all with the curvy legs.....unheard of!!!

I already put this in my spot at Little Falls Antique Center

a 2 tiered table already painted
I listed the sewing box with vintage wallpaper and the pink barbola frame in my etsy store

an italian tole table with carving cabriole legs and handpainted roses OMG

Lets not forget this adorable table with a drawer and shelf and oh those legs!

a great mirror top (removable) table high heel feet :-)

very french nightstand metal mesh doors ..and the pink shutters and globe and everything in the backround

look at the hand painting on this chair!!!!!!!!

some smalls all with that french flair

and last but not least my favorite auction purchase some lenci dolls...
Being an antique dealer may not be the easiest work in the world but parts of it (like doing the shopping) is just downright orgasmic!
