Admittedly, I have not been out perusing antique stores and markets looking for inventory because: #coronavirus. Right. This outbreak has made acquiring inventory a bit more challenging. So, this month’s focus on Fresh Finds is on goods that I acquired from England and France. Not to imply that I traveled to these countries. I did not. However, international shipping is a wonderful convenience.
So, first off, I purchased a lot of these J Sainsbury jars. They are so darn cute and they keep flying off the shelf at the Stone Soup Antiques Gallery. These are from England, and they were made in the early 1900s. This makes them at least one hundred years old. I love the character and age that they show. Each one is so unique.
Up next, I received a shipment of vintage cafe au lait bowls from France. As you can see, they come in a variety of sizes. I love how these all compliment one another with their style and colors. Some of the gold bands are a bit faded which really adds to their charm. Some of them have the most beautiful stamps on the bottom.
Finally, I received the cutest shipment of enamelware canisters from France. It is a set of 6! I love the light blue color and script of the words describing the contents of each container. The canister in the far back is for sugar or “sucre”. The canister of the right in the back is for coffee or “cafe”.
I must say, receiving these items sure did brighten my week. It was so fun to eagerly unpack each box and find the little treasures inside. Here’s to wishing you a week filled with little moments of anticipation and joy. Thank you for stopping by the blog today to find out what’s new.
