Vintage Treasures

Hi everyone! Hope you have all had a lovely weekend.

Last weekend, I spent the days treasure hunting! A dear friend and I hit the Portland Antique Fair plus some vintage shops and flea markets. Hard work but so much fun! Here are a few of the pretty items we discovered. I will be listing them in the shop this week.

Love this sweet, Farmhouse style kitchen scale! It’s rare to find this color so I was thrilled when I came upon this one!

There is something so homey about these lovely soup bowls. You can imagine filling them to the brim with a delicious soup while the rain comes down outside. I paired them with these stately antique soup spoons too!

Mail isn’t as pretty as it used to be but we should still have a beautiful place to hold it right? Love this silver tone, vintage letter holder. Very Art Nouveau.

I’m so drawn to lavender glass. It’s romantic, nostalgic and looks so gorgeous when the light passes through it. This antique wasp catcher is missing its cork but still remains a lovely, rustic piece.

Okay well, these are just a few of the pretties we found. Hope you enjoyed them.

Have a wonderful week!

  1. All of these pieces are so pretty! I love having older pieces that have a story behind them mixed in with my newer pieces.

    I like the kitchen scale! I recently saw a knock-off red one at the Cracker Barrel country store and that’s what this reminds me of.

  3. YOUR BLOG AND VINTAGE ENTRIES REMIND ME OF MY PAST LIFE. I ONLY REMEMBER THE FEELING OF THEN WHEN I SEE THINGS OF THESE SORTS.. I ALWAYS WANT TO TAKE THE TIME TO TAP BACK INTO THAT TIME BUT I NEVER KNOW HOW OR WHERE TO START. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES!

  4. Gorgeous items that have been so beautifully photographed. The photos really caught my attention.

    Very nice post. This is a great reminder that there is always room for improvement. Thanks for the great examples and inspiration!

  6. I found an awesome old cast iron garden set that has been on my wish list (they came way down on the price) so we had to go back to the store on Monday with the truck to get that. After thinking about an old wicker chair all night ($20, it needs cushions, I can’t wait to find the right fabric) I decided to get it too so we had another full truckload. We stopped at one more antique shop and I found this pretty bottle and some beautiful china that I’ll save for later.

I would love to hear from you! What are your thoughts?
