Friday Finds

old books, vintage finds, candelabra
I am back.

I had to take a brief break.

I missed everyone.

Here is a tiny peek at a few finds.



I found several boxes of old books including the Our Little Folks.







I love stove pipe covers.

Especially the snow scenes.


Probably part of my Christmas decor until I sell it.










I went to an estate sale and found dealer friends I had not seen in years.

We talked so much I only bought a few things.

The prize was this altar candelabra.

I did not realize churches were not allowed to have real candles burning.

At least not around here.

So there is many around, but this one caught my fancy.







It is old wrought iron.

Deliciously curly feet.

Once white, then black and now antique gold.

I started to distressed it with white.





But decide it was quite elegant like it was.

Now in Booth W-10 at Riverfront Antique Mall.

We are expecting huge crowds today so get there early.






Now the question: Did I really restrain myself and only buy these few items?

Oh, my, just how long have you been reading my Friday Finds posts?


See y'all!

  2. Love the alter candelabra! It would make a lovely Christmas d├ęcor. I was cruising Hawaii last week and am too tired to post about the craft classes I took onboard! I need a break from my break!

  3. Beautiful find and of course I love the old books too! The stove pipe cover is neat. I think I may have seen some of those and not know what they are. Now I do! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  7. I was starting to worry about you when I didn't see you on my feed every morning. Isn't it funny how we can all have this kind of connection even though we've never met? Can't wait to see what else you found, because if this is it, I will really be worried!

  8. Love the candelabra! Looking forward to seeing the treasures you haven't showed us yet. I repurposed a couple of stove pipe covers as frames a while back and I love them. That winter scene is lovely. Old books are always a hit here.
