In this post I share new inventory that I brought to Stone Soup Antiques as well as my most recent booth update.
For the past couple of years, I have been posting my “fresh finds” and sharing photographs of items that will eventually make their way into my booth at Stone Soup. However, this summer has been so busy that I have not had the time to compile all my finds and photograph them. So, today I am going to share some photos from the Sky Lark House booth located in the Stone Soup Antiques Gallery, in Ballston Spa, New York.
If you sign up and subscribe to my blog after reading this post, I will send you a 20% off coupon, for any item in my booth, which is good until the end of August 2022.
I took down the vintage flag collection and incorporated new items, some of which are in keeping with the upcoming season.
So, without further delay, let’s jump into it! Here are photos of items in my booth and some information about the items.
Stone Soup Antiques – Booth Update
Welcome to the booth! I am always trying to keep this space visually interesting. So about every 3 months, I usher in new inventory and change things up to reflect the season.
If you visited Stone Soup Antiques Gallery over the summer, then you probably saw the collection of Vintage U.S. Flags. Now that we are nearing the end of summer, I wanted a different feeling that was more akin to the end of summer and beginning of fall.
If you were to peek in through the doorway to the Sky Lark House booth, this is the view that would greet you. The table in the front entryway was refinished by my friend Cindy from Reinvented Delaware. (And -yes- I drove to Delaware to pick it up).
If you are new to this blog, I specialize in items with character and patina that evoke a farmhouse feel.
Chippy White Cupboard
This chippy white cupboard, which is resting on top of a White Oak Dresser, was a recent find and I am in love with it. ( As an aside there was an entire post about the makeover of that little white dresser) The paint and hardware on the cupboard is original. The cupboard is meant to be mounted on a wall and there are mounting brackets on the back, not visible from this angle.
The interior of the cupboard has an authentic beaded board back which was never painted. The decorative detail on the top is so charming. Also, I love that the original latches still work. The price of this cupboard is $350.
Metal Shelf with Patina
Another recent find was this metal shelf. I am always on the look out for items that have authentic character. If an item looks like it has been sitting in a barn for 50 years, then I will probably like it. This metal shelf has character and patina that is authentic.
This shelf is perfect for a kitchen, bathroom or laundry room. My suggestion is to ensure you install the metal shelf in a location where there is an existing stud in the wall. This shelf is heavy! This shelf is priced at $125.
Original art work is also something I look for. This oil painting portrait of an older gentleman came out of an old farmhouse in Chatham, NY where it presided over a fireplace mantel for a number of generations. I was told his name was Herbert or “Herbie” for short. Herbie looks like a kind and distinguished gentleman.
These little oil on board painting are from Maine. I wrote about the history and location of these two painting in the Fresh Finds for June post.
I also wanted to share with you some of the smaller items that are currently in the booth. This collection of trophies is one of my favorite things. The smaller trophies on the left are from England. The trophy to the right is from 1935.
This vintage white painted basket is another one of my favorite items. It has great texture and character. For now, it holds a stack of old books.
Of course, there is plenty of ironstone throughout the booth, including pieces like this pitcher. The old canning jars with bale wire closures are from the 1920-1930s. They are perfect for holding flowers and are priced at $12 each.
Even the most utilitarian items have beauty. This watering can with its rusty spout was charming so I decided to fill it with some artificial blackberry branches. It is resting on an old farmhouse table that was converted into a coffee table and is from Maine.
Here is another photo showing some of the ironstone that’s available as well as some of the English Advertising jars that I have. The little brown jars on the third shelf from the top are antique salt glazed ink bottles from England.
