Let's Talk Vintage! #49: Antiques in the Park Part II

Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
Every week vintage lovers join
together and share their latest
finds, inspirations, wares, 
projects, you name it.
Every Tuesday starting at 9 AM!

Come join the party...


This week I am sharing more snapshots
of the antique show in the park
from last week. There are so
many more great things to highlight!

 
I seriously wanted to buy these two
department store Christmas soldiers.
I'm having a Nutcracker
birthday party for Bebe soon. How
cool would these have
been at the front door?
 
 
 
 Probably should have bought them
The asking price was 150.00 for both!


 
This dealer was really a creative sort.
You'll see the chair below that also
came from this booth.
 
 
Look at this repurposed chair...
with lots of creative flair!
 
 

Read this sign....
It tells a lot about the way things
 were back in the late 1800's. 
 Instead of typing: "Warning Bridge
 Weight Capacity is ....." someone
came up with this verbiage.
Apparently it was James!
Ponderous!

These two pieces are interesting.
Nautical and Industrial.
So unique!

 

 
You can't help but want to reach out and pick up some
of these vintage letter press blocks. So fun!

 
If you look closely and read the tag you'll
find out these aren't early bowling pins.
 
How awesome would these be to decorate with?

 
Really cool!
Be careful... later on
you may start craving a root beer!

 
Ooooh. This display is all about 
"cozy cottage charm!"

 
Yes, please, may I have this!
 I love the galvanized wash tub
 "turned beverage holder" idea.

 
My friend and I split the cost of this rope.
I've wanted to make an end table for our
lake house after seeing some on Pinterest.
 
We joked and said we're gonna get
together and "make stuff"
out of rope for a girl's day out.
 
 
This is Kathy....She's
very into vintage. Should be fun!

Now, here are this week's features:

 
Tis' the season! The season
for dealer's to start stocking
their shops with Christmas treasures!
Sharon of Blue Willow House found a
wonderful selectioin of vintage
Shiny Brites.

 
Look at this cute vintage yellow barn!
Dianne from Deanie's Stash found
it at a vintage toy auction.
Can you picture it, decorated
in a holiday vignette?
 

Adina of Simply Country Life shared
her chalk paint dresser makeover.
This should help motivate me,

I have a dresser and the chalk paint,
I just need to get out and paint it!


and Tammy of One More Time
shared how she turned some
of her daughter's wedding decor
into a Fall vignette!

A big thank you to all who participated

Gosh, Jillian, if this was just a sampling, it was a great venue! I would've snagged those Nutcrackers, for sure! Love the sign, and that industrial ticket counter thingy.
My home is so full of vintage items that I've used in my fall decor (including a set of those exercise clubs!), that I wanted to share a tour of my home this week. Hope your readers will stop by and say hello. :)
Thanks for hosting the vintage party - my bailiwick!

Hi Jillian! Your Midlands Railway Notice sign is from England. We lived in the "Midlandsm" the middle region of the country, north of London for two years. The city we lived in was Derb" (pronounced "Darby"). You see it named in the lower left of your sign!! Small world, right? Thanks so much for hosting :)

Nothing vintage to share today but oh my -- those dept store soldiers are beautiful -- I would be hard pressed to pass those by. So many goodies!

Hi Jillian :)

If I would have gone to that place I would have ended up broke! LOL So many cute things.

I knew I should have messaged you about the "H" hat stand when I saw that you had posted it on Pinterest. It's obviously gone now... darn it!

Oh well...

xo,
rue

What a fun show! I love that railroad sign and the huge bundle of rope you bought. Good idea to split it with a friend. Thanks for sharing your junkin' day at Vintage Inspiration Party.
