Antiquing Finds

Hello friends!  Don't forget to enter my giveaway for two Shabby Chic books.  The giveaway runs through 2/17 so there is still time to enter  here.

I recently posted about our antiquing/shopping trip to Lucketts, Chartreuse and the antique shops located in downtown Frederick, Md.  I love the Paris pillow  I purchased at Chartreuse. Today I want to show you my other finds from this trip.


I fell in love with this inhaler. Though not that old I thought it was so cute and it goes great with my other black and white pieces.


Here's the side view.  The best part is it only cost $3.00!

My next purchase was a new piece that fits in perfectly with my other white and black pieces.  For some reason I am always drawn to anything with a number on it.


 I didn't realize how many things I had with numbers on them until I started looking around our house.
This could be my next post.

You may remember my search for a vintage breadboard and how my sweet friend Mona at Providence Ltd sent me a wonderful one as a gift.


The board in front is the one Mona gave me. The larger one I bought on this trip. The funny thing is I had been looking for over two years and never found a vintage board anywhere local. There were a couple I saw on-line but the cost was more than I wanted to pay. We walked into a shop in Frederick and there were at least twenty different breadboards.  I was in heaven! 


I like the handle on this one.  I also bought another board which I believe is a pizza paddle.  


Picture from Pottery Barn

My purchase is almost identical to the vintage ones that Pottery Barn sold and mine cost $127 less!  These are sold out at PB now but I believe they originally sold for $159 each.  
You'll have to wait to see the paddle in our new home. I am trying to declutter to put the house on the market so I didn't want to add anything new to the walls.

We leave for Orlando in a couple of days.  I am looking so forward to seeing my family and getting a chance to visit neighborhoods and narrow down our search for a home. Wish us luck with selling the homes we own now.

Thank you so much for visiting and all your kind comments.

I am joining the parties at:

I wonder why they had so many breadboards? They are wonderful, but remember your going to have to pack everything to move !. The weather here is gorgeous, that should make your decision easier.

Sherry your finds are awesome! I love the bread boards!

Nancy said...

Sherry, I almost bought an inhaler very similar to yours. Love that.

I'm also on the hunt for a vintage bread board but all the ones I've found online cost more than I can, or want to, pay. The long handled board...pizza paddle. That is sooo neat!

Sherry you SCORED with those breadboards!! You can't find them for nothin' where I live, and I want one too! The inhaler was also a steal for 3 bucks!
Thanks so much my friend for making all the extra effort to come over for a visit! Seems all is back to normal on my blog. This domain thing has been a real white knuckle experience!
I hope you'll do a post on all your numbered treasures too *winks* Vanna

Bonnie said...

Good luck house-hunting in Orlando! I live in Gainesville and am interested in the area myself. My husband has applied for a job there and I have been house hunting online. There are some beautiful and pricey areas in Orlando. The traffic is murderous, so be sure and live as close to work as you can. I will be excited to see what you find.

I love thrifting and finding treasures! You really did good!

Andrea said...

Oh Sherry, I can so relate to your upcoming move. Exciting, yet nerve wracking at the same time! G'luck with it all, and I LOVE the bread board. Hmmm, I think I need to put this on my radar now too!

Donnie said...

What great finds. My son is a nursing student and collects medical containers and i know he would love to find something like that for his small growing collection. I'll have to be sharper when I'm shopping.
