It’s been a slow secondhand shopping summer for me. As I browse through pictures in estate sale listings, I just haven’t been feeling it.
That’s okay. Secondhand/vintage/antique shopping is like that. Sometimes you’re into it and finding stuff and other times, not so much.
But Tom and I did do some antiquing in the West Bottoms of KC during our staycation and he claims he enjoyed it. I think I even believe him.
I came home with three small purchases, all from the same booth in the Bottoms Up Antique Market.
This little framed postcard of a ship was the first thing to catch my eye.
I liked it for the frame as much as for the postcard.
I haven’t found a permanent spot for it yet, so for now it’s on a brass easel on the family room mantel.
I also took a liking to this little plant mister.
I love clear glass anything and this was so charming and even practical. I mean I don’t actually mist plants, but I could, right?
And finally this little white creamer.
I wasn’t sure how I was going to use it, but these little spreading knives fit perfectly in it.
And when I put it in the hutch with the white soup tureens, it looked like it was meant to be there.
So that’s the sum total of my summer’s secondhand finds. Three little pieces, but they all make me happy.
How’s your secondhand mojo been?
