Vintage Window Shopping

Friend Kristy and I met for lunch Monday and a quick look into Main Street antique and second-hand stores. Monday is a good day for lunch, because it's less crowded in the restaurants, but not-so-ideal for vintage shopping because about half the stores are closed on Monday. Drat. Still, I found some good stuff at the local furniture consignment shop. None of it came home with me, but you know--it's the thrill of the hunt!

A nice full-sized Broyhill bed, $75.  I don't know what style this is. It's not Brasilia:

A clean-lined dresser with unusual, fun hardware:

About 8 pieces of crewel work design. I took pictures of only two of them, but there was a variety, much of it Pennsylvania Dutch inspired. Some collector is going to score big!

Two avocado kitchen chairs. I was tempted, since my kitchen will be an avocado green 1960s-1970s color scheme. But these were covered in a rather high maintenance, satiny fabric that would be a disaster after a few months with young children in the house. I gave them a pass so they could be adopted by the right home!

  1. Darn, don't you hate that when stores are closed! Seems like that happens to us all the time when we are on a road trip too...we get there on the only day they are closed and you know we won't be making it back anytime soon.

    You saw some cool stuff, I really like that headboard.
