brimfield finds...

On Monday I showed you a few photos I took at Brimfield.
Today I want to share what I brought home...
This wonderful old table in turquoise...
Love the detail on the knob...
I put it in my booth on Tuesday and it sold that afternoon!
Next up is this sweet old stool in turquoise too...
I brought it to the shop as well and added it to our porch and garden display along with this wonderful old white step ladder...
I think I am having seller's regret...I just might have to bring it back home!
I also found this great old medicine cabinet...
Wondering if I should leave it in all it's chippy glory or give it a coat of the new Martha Stewart gray paint I just bought...
I found a wonderful vintage wedding photo...
Just look at her bouquet...
I also picked up this great old mantel mirror...
It was my deal of the day!  Just look at the detail...

I will be giving this a coat of white and am thinking of switching it out with one I already have in my den.  We shall see.

This next treasure is a definite keeper...
I have always wanted to start a collection of vintage seltzer bottles...
Now I have!
I am joining Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday.
Thank you for hosting Debra!

It is a big weekend here for my family.
My daughter Jaclyn is graduating from UMass/Dartmouth on Sunday!!
We are so proud of her!
We have had a week of rain...but I think the sun might just shine down on us on by Sunday!
Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Wonderful finds!
I collect seltzer bottles, too.

Now that I'm not selling antiques anymore, I could kick myself for all the incredible treasures I sold in my booth. I don't see how you gals do it! ;-)

XO,

Sandi said...

Lovely finds Sandi especially that ladder and bottle!! I could kick myself! I found a neat seltzer bottle made in Germany and it was less than $5. I left it there..had it picked up , but kept telling myself that I am trying to downsize so put it back. Ever since I wish I had brought it home. It even had an *S* on it!! Maybe next time! lol

Keep the ladder...keep the ladder!

Girl, I want to shop with you and see where you find such great stuff. I also want to come and shop from you.

I have just set my uncle on a hunt for seltzer bottles for me. I am eager to see what he finds!

Congrats to your daughter! Awesome.

Our oldest child, Keith, graduates in the morning. We have home schooled him for eleven years. Bittersweet times.

Oh boy oh boy did you ever score Sandi!!! I think you should thank your luck stars that I live so far away. I would become a cat burgler just to get that mirror from you! All your finds are awesome!
I had to read the posts that I have missed here and saw the post of you and TOT. How fun to meet her in person. I love here and have always been a huge fan of hers. You two are the cutest girls ever!

I really like what you came home with, I'm not sure I've seen too many antique seltzer bottles...very cool. Congratulations to your daughter!

Jill said...

I just left a comment and didn't notice my daughter was still signed in...it was me, Jill, not "Bee"

Comeca Jones said...

The bottle and the mirror are my favorite!

Cindy said...

You got some really lovely stuff! I love the turquoise color, no wonder the table sold so quickly.
I too love the wedding picture, what huge old lovely flower arrangements they were carrying. They would weigh a lot wouldn't they?!
I love the mantel mirror and the little step ladder, I need one like that in my kitchen.
Enjoy your weekend and congratulations to the Grad, you must be very proud and with good reason to be.
Hugs, Cindy

Elaine said...

I knew I should have gone to Brimfield! The weather has been so bad lately I thought it might rain all week so I passed it up.

You did really well there. Love the turquoise table- so cute!

the fishermans cottage said...

Congrats to your daughter. Love the little blue table and mirror, looking forward to seeing it painted x ( may son's a Chelsea supporter too :) )

Victoria said...

That mirror is amazing Sandi! Absolutely a keeper!!! I love the little white ladder too, I think I'd have to keep that for sure if I were you!

How exciting about your daughter, you must be so very proud of her!

Susanne said...

Love the turquoise and the mantel mirror. And those wedding flowers are amazing! Very curious about the date of the wedding, those hats and dress lengths, unusual?

Linda said...

Congratulations on your daughter's graduation- it is a great achievement! You sure found some wonderful goodies, Sandi...the bouquets on the photo are really something!

A Shabby Moment in Time said...

Sandi,
Looks like you hit the jackpot at Brimfield. Gorgeous finds! My favorite is the mirror and the seltzer bottle. It's funny you said that since I too have wanted to start a collection of seltzer bottles, along with vintage glass plant spritzers. Hmmmm...maybe one of these days I'll get around to it. And as far as the step stool on my blog that "got by you"....let's just say I bought it straight off the truck....ahem! :)
Congrats on your daughter's graduation!!!
Blessings & Hugs,
Karen

Robin said...
