It’s with great pleasure that I bring to you the Fresh Finds for July. As a quick reminder, with COVID and the temporary shut down of businesses, I have not had the ability to go out and acquire inventory as I normally do. So, with the partial reopening of New York and neighboring states, I was able to finally visit other dealers. This time, I went with my friend Bonny on a road trip to Pennsylvania.
It was so nice to see other people and to be able to actively shop in a real brick and mortar store. It was over 90 degrees outside and because we were wearing our face masks while in the stores, it was uncomfortably hot. However, it was so much fun to be in a store looking at inventory that we hardly noticed the discomfort from the heat and our masks.
This past trip I was able to find some items that I am really excited about. First off, is the bread tin. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. After doing some research, I believe that it is from England. As near as I can tell, England seems to be the only country that produced large round enamelware bread tins.
That little grey buffalo check blanket is made of the softest wool. It will be perfect for use in the fall.
Another sweet little discovery was the back of this hoosier door that someone had turned into a bird feeder and garden pot holder. It was so charming that I couldn’t pass it up.
The little chippy white chair is super sturdy and has layers of paint peeking through. I just love the charm and character that it has. It has been painted at least 3 times.
This large white planter box is another favorite. The scalloped edges and generous size are so inviting. Although it was designed for plants, I think it would be such a good thing to use for storing blankets and/or pillows, especially in a child’s room.
If I were to write about all the items photographed, this would be a very long post. So, I will let the photos speak for themselves.
Most of the items will be brought into the Sky Lark House booth at Stone Soup Antiques in Ballston Spa. If you see something here that really speaks to you, feel free to send me an email or call me. I am happy to set items aside for individuals. Thanks for stopping by the blog today to see what is going on in this corner of the internet.
