I had some great finds at a couple of estate sales this weekend! Pictured below are just some of my finds, which include a faux bamboo and brass tray table, a huge vintage crewel work and two pretty tins. The books and candleabra were already mine.
I love this table, and while it wasn't cheap, I definitely did not pay retail. It's a late mid century reproduction piece, so I wont feel guilty about painting the base - it's definitely not real wood...I'm thinking either bright orange or pink. Would you paint it or leave it as is?
The crewel work is actually the 12 Days of Christmas, although I think it would be nice to display year round. I may paint the frame white.
I also picked up this fabulous vintage straw bag in new condition!
A couple of pieces for either the Etsy store or booth. I think I'll paint the plastic recipe box a bright color.
Another cute tin, a book published in the 70s featuring beautiful photos of 40s movie stars, and a set of repro Victorian spoons made of shell.
Finally, I couldn't leave behind this lovely woven straw box. I wish I knew more about it, or where it was made, but I think it is lovely!
Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what folks have been up to at these fine places:
