Fresh Finds from Maine


First, a disclaimer – I could not fit the larger items that I purchased into this photo.  So, this is really just the smaller things that I found. Not photographed is a table with the best faded green paint and  some old newell posts.  Also, that is a corbel in the upper left side of the photo and it is ENORMOUS.

Now, on to the good stuff.  This trip I did not find as much inventory as I was hoping for but I still came back with my car packed full of goodies. If you read my previous blog post, you will recognize the polyurethaned orange chest of drawers in the background.  It’s in the process of getting a makeover.



I also found this great oak stool with green paint.  It’s very sturdy and I like to think an artist sat on it while working away on his/her projects.

Of course, I am always on the look out for wooden mashers – particularly if they are carved from a single piece of wood.  White matte pottery is also another favorite of mine.  I prefer McCoy but I also love these vessels made by other companies.


Butter pats


I also stumbled across some butter pats and put them into the cart.

I’m kicking myself for not getting a better photo of the giant corbel.  It’s ridiculously heavy but it’s so amazing.

Another favorite find was this hand painted basket in almost perfect condition.  The arc of the handle is so graceful and the flowers are painted on both sides. It’s still solid and definitely well made.

All of these items and more will be heading to the booth soon.  I am hoping to be able to do a booth re-set for summer.  This allows me to bring in new inventory and change things up a bit.




Thank you for stopping by the blog today.  I hope to see you at Stone Soup Antiques in Ballston Spa, NY.
