MoRe SpAce for mORe SuPer Cool LooT!

I have expanded my booth at The Tavares Antique Mall to accommodate the ever expanding amount of loot that I score. I brought in more goodies today and did some rearranging,  which is a never ending process for me.

My style is so eclectic that my multiple {design} personalities start to fight with each other. Most of the time they work together but last week they were definitely at odds with each other and nothing turned out the way I wanted.

My junkin personality won out today when I was able to score all kinds of off beat, quirky and slightly unusual things. I typically don’t look for the precious antiques, as I prefer oddities and things that you have to ask what they are. I like mantiques and vintiques a little more than Fenton and Louis Comfort Tiffany. Anyhoo…here is the lowdown on today’s LOOT!

A Super Funky Vintage Box and you ask what for?!?

What else but your Wig…duh!!!!

I love this Vodka Decanter/ Dispenser. It would be fun in a Cowboy -Wild West theme bar.

and everyone needs a light like this one for their bar

and a lamp for their Jetsons House

Tom Torrens Lamp

Decanter with music box that play "How Dry Am I" and this one is pretty dry...

Vintage Sign for Mint Shnapps

Cig. Roller

Good ol' junk Cabinet

full of…well what else…good junk, including these Destash Jars

Green & Yellow Destash Jars

okay… some of you might not get the destash jars, so let me try to explain…to destash is to get rid of all that stuff in your junk drawers. So a destash jar is…you guessed it… junk in a jar, lol. More specifically… color coordinated, silly junk in a jar. It makes a really cool and visually stimulating conversation piece. I used to make them all the time with buttons and jewelry findings, but I love the quirky junk that you find in these.

Anyhoo…gotta run…Have a great week!

Mine is off to a good start, yay!

Find Of The Week & Progress Updates

I found this really great distressed church pew and I knew exactly where I wanted to put it. I didn’t measure it, but somehow I knew that it would fit and it just barely did.  It was meant to be mine. Thank goodness, because I didn’t have anywhere else to put it. Now I have to relocate the prints that are above it. The one thing about being an antiques dealer is that your house decor is constantly rotating to different places every time you bring something else home, lol. I think I am going to do some very un-churchy  wall decor above it. Maybe an old honky-tonk concert poster or a saloon sign to show some contrast.

Look how perfectly distressed it is! I like having odd conversation pieces in my house and when my 18 year old son asked “is that a church pew”? I knew that I had hit the nail on the head with this one.

Updates…

as for the progress on this weeks to do list…

well I got everything sanded, but no painting occurred thanks to the rainy weather. Maybe the weekend will be a productive one.

Y’all have a good one.

This Weeks To-Do List

So it might seem strange to post your “to-do” list up on a blog, but I seem to have issues with completing these lists and need to have a sense of accountability toward completing them. Maybe if I post them for the world to see, I will feel more obligated to try harder and y’all will get a glimpse of my projects that are in the works…

  • Finish painting this China Cabinet

  • Start sanding and painting this dresser set.

  • start sanding and painting this 3 corner cabinet

  • finish these chairs

  • Prepare for this weeks booth install

These are the main items for this week along with 100 other minor things that need to happen.

Wish me luck…
