Finally the truck is unloaded and all the treasures of the Peachtree 23 Yard Sale event have been sorted. I also have managed to clean and wax some - that's a record for me!
Two backs from Adirondack chairs - one natural wood and one a deliciously chippy red. Can't you see them in the garden with bright red flowers?
A lonely carved green leg from a forgotten table. A wooden box of wooden finials. You know what a finial freak I am.
The lard tin was scored by Olive who graciously let me have it. You have to be careful when shopping with Olive. She will score on some great things before you even notice them! Read The Goods by Olive here!
Most of you figured out from the Sneak Peek I had bought a blue wagon. Here it is in all its blue Sears All-American glory.
A great old cutlery tray from a buffet.
The garden gate is an old one - a super heavy weight. I almost did not get it in the back of the truck. I love the small size of it.
A square table with fancy legs - needs a ton of paint work to make it pretty. Not this week! It goes over in the corner for projects to be done at a later date.
A curvy iron plant stand.
A Eastlake wood piece also from a old piece of furniture. Do you think in the future all these miscellaneous pieces of furniture will reunite?
A green train case.
Last, but not least, a wonderfully stained and shabby linen piece of luggage with initials!
Let us see a close-up of this beauty. I plan to try something I have seen some of you do and I hope it works.
Well, you will have to just wait and see.
Look at the depth of the case.
Say it with me now:
LOVE MY LUGGAGE!
I had planned to sand and paint this bookcase today, but the physical terror on my shoulder was horribly painful today and I wimped out. It has been added to the pile of items awaiting their time to shine.
I did get several things cleaned and tagged and taken over to the booth.
The red candle shutter and the picnic baskets of blue quilt squares are the beginning of the patriotic display I am creating.
I wanted to show how good the wagon looked once it had been washed and waxed with streamers of blue and red hanging from the handle, but it was too dark. Anyway you get to see the whole display of items ready for the customers to come in and take home a treasure. It is a truly motley mix, but I love it.
We are expecting some major crowds at Riverfront Antique Mall this weekend. About a mile down the highway there is an estate sale of several warehouses once owned by Gordon Farmer. If you watch American Pickers, his extensive collection of everything was featured.
I do want to mention another blogger I met along the Peachtree 23. Mustang Gina and her husband recently bought a old home in Ridge Spring and her blog tells the tales of owning a historic property. We met at one of the homes participating in the sale. Go visit her and catch what she bought! Read Living With Scarlett here.
