Granted that the rival piece has all the original milkglass inserts that holds the dental tools, while my drawers were empty. But since I don't plan to store my non-existent dental tools there, I'm happy I'm not burden with them and have room to stash my jewelry, and other bathroom doodads.
Oh yeah...that's what I got it for...our master bathroom! It has newly installed mirrors on the counter and backsplash portions of it, although the edges are raw and very ouchie if you touch it wrong! I need to figure something out there...any ideas?
What a beaut! I'm so proud of this find and I can't wait to get it up to the bathroom (it was too heavy for Ben and I, so now I just need to find a way to bribe a visit from my brother) :)
I also picked up this 6 foot long gate up at my friend Eric's place at the Brimfield Barn. It's fairly lightweight for what it is and we plan to hang it as a pot rack over the kitchen island. The pots will hang from S-hooks and the rails are thin enough to hang other things, like our giant vintage ladle.
I dug through the "Hardware Lady's" piles of doodads to come up with some handles for an amazing $2 dresser Ben and I bought at the auction, plus a tooth brush holder that needs a little work and lizardy towel hook and wooden plate to go near the shower in the bathroom.
I didn't exactly mean to, but it seems that I've pretty much got the whole bathroom outfitted at Brimfield! This French fishing basket will make a perfect powder room waste basket!
And I can hardly resist an interesting frame. A Faux Bois cardboard frame with a neat owl and skull print was only $3. The vintage elaborate tramp art frame was a steal at $20. I've been wanting a tramp art frame in the worst way for years but they were always just too much. I'm happy to have found one just for me!!
These tiny doodads were irresistible. A tiny bisque doll that you may be seeing again around Christmas time. A putz fire to go with my putz collection. The newest addition to my Wade England collection. Swan baby buttons and a neat celluloid flower. And an adorable baby drinking glass.
These were some of my other awesomest finds. Santa and his little cotton friend were found at different booths, but now enjoy skiing together!
Some other yummy Christmas goodies (I can't stay away from Christmas...ever!)
All of these trees were real finds too. The large ones are gigantic and were only $5 and $2 respectively. The little one on the interesting wooden base was a buck. Yay!
And last but not least was my very first purchase. A pretty little nightgown that fit just right. A pretty little necklace was found later and match a pair of earrings I already have.
I'm still reveling in my treasures and my mom is too. I need to show you the amazing and adorable things she got that I am super jealous of! I'll see if I can't snap some quick photos the next time I visit her. :)
I would love to know what the best goodies you've dug up at antiques fairs are...just for fun!
