I had a free hour before picking the boys up from preschool today. And you’d have to be crazy to think I was going to spend that hour doing anything like laundry or cleaning. So I raced over to SuzAnna’s Antiques to do a bit of browsing.
I found no less than fifty thousands things that I wanted to bring home with me. But I’ll just share my top 5 favourite finds (actually 6, I couldn’t decide on just 5, so I had to do a tie).
I would have sold one of my children to get my hands on this charming yellow sink cabinet. But my boys got lucky because the cabinet had just been sold. Darn it.
The red wire Toms Peanut display was $79. I thought it would make the cutest bookshelf or toy storage for a boy’s room. It would have to be secured to the wall, but isn’t it about a thousand times better than those plastic bin type toy displays that cost about $50 at Target! It would be extra cute if that child actually was a little Tommy.
And chicken feeders for $24. Would be so great with succulents tucked into each of the holes and placed on a kitchen window sill, or as a centre piece on a long table. I almost bought one but reconsidered when I thought about how much it would cost in succulents to fill. Not in the budget right now.
I love rusty old tins, but I especially love rusty old blue tins like this Maxwell House coffee tin.
And I just loved that this old real estate sign was so local. I’m a sucker for anything that represents where we live. I love the “Living is Finer in North Carolina”.
