For the past few days, we have had to focus on booth work. Both places sold some larger pieces of furniture and that meant we needed replacements ASAP because those pieces--two cabinets and a large credenza--held a lot of stuff. I have nothing ready to go because I've had no time to paint for quite a while, so we went hunting.
The base was by itself, and the top with screwed down on top of a padded footstool. How weird is that!
Of course we found lots of other stuff too. A few things not pictured below are a 1930's gas cookstove and a very old, probably 30's, Maytag wringer washer. Both need work so they will have to wait until Larry can get to them. But they are so cool!
We found lots of smalls too.
|Hazel Atlas Strawberry jar and Christmas glasses, Anchor Hocking strawberry mug.|
|Reds! I am such a sucker for this color. Keeping the platter, the rest is in the booths.|
|This stacking tea set was made in Czechoslovakia.|
|Pyrex "Primary Colors" blue bowl, and Hazel Atlas "Kitchen Aids" in aqua.|
|The little lamp was identified by the seller as Fenton. The shade is metal.|
|This is called Gaudy Welsh, not sure why. It's a type of English pottery with more primitive decoration.|
Here's a look at a few other changes in the booths. I rearranged and added some new things to give a Christmas color scheme.
I found this table on my recent storytelling trip. All it needed was a little tightening up. I already had the four chairs ready to go.
The dropfront desk is another recent find.
More recent finds: the croquet set, small table, black pump and red washboard.
A few Christmas things made it to our Ravenswood booth. I have more, packed away somewhere...guess they'll wait til next year.
Handmade quilt with embroidered birds. It's in very good condition except for a little embroidery in a couple places could use repair.
Lots of chrome for the retro kitchen!
