The Tin Man and his Misses are what greeted you at the entrance of this eclectic booth. I can just picture them on a bench in a garden. The wheel in the back is especially nice with all the scrolly detail. Not sure how it was used....seems too ornate to have been used as a wheel.
One of my favorite things to look for is metal and wire pieces so that's what this post is all about
at Madison-Bouckville in Upstate New York.
This was a dealer that specialized in all things metal and wire. Laura pointed this booth out to me to go check out while she rested in the shade with Deanna for a bit.
Isn't this one gorgeous....what I assume is a flower frog but it could have just been an ornate piece off something else.
Repurposed art ......LOVE that!!!
A little wire cage....that I should have bought now that I'm seeing it again.
He did have some really old and unique pieces.
These 2 plates being some of best ones....well that I liked.
This was a tin holder that I would guess is an ice cream cone holder. Some of you antique dealers would probably recognize it as something else. Care to take a guess????
Wouldn't it be fun to use at a kids Birthday Party???
An old tin colander.
Metal curtain tiebacks. I'd use them for something else. The glass roses are what makes these unique.
Another metal lantern piece that you could use inside or out. I wonder where a piece that big originally came from. A big old estate perhaps?
Cool metal sphere for the garden.
Ah and here we are....the place where Paula feel in love with Matilda. It wasn't til after I took this picture that she came back to buy her. I haven't seen it set up at her house yet but knowing Paula she's dressed her perfectly with all the right accoutrement!!!
And here's my waltzing Matilda......head first in the basket. I need to find a name for her. Any ideas???
Deanna bought her for me knowing I'd been looking for one. Someone else was thinking of buying her so she had to act fast. The price was good so I was thrilled. I plan on staining the fabric brown or I may recover her with fabric.
The wire bird cage was a steal at $25.....I thought.
More metal goodies that Paula scored on. The metal bins were part of a set that Laura
and her split up.
That's what's fun about shopping with friends. You can have someone else looking out for what you're hunting for and when you find it you can share it!!!
What could be better then that???
Still have more pics from the show so let me know if you still want to see more. A White Wednesday post is still ahead so that'll be next.
I haven't even shown you all the treasures/junk that I bought. I almost forgot.
Well there's still time.
Boy I think it's been awhile since I've shown any flowers....well that's what happens in late August. We get apathetic about what we were so excited for just a few months ago.
I do have a nursery open house to go to this Wednesday so maybe then I'll WOW you with flora and fauna.
