Latest Finds {What I'm Bringing to The Cottage this Month}

This month's hunting has yielded some fun vintage finds to bring to The Cottage sale this week. It wasn't intentional, but I seem to have found mostly boxes, crates and items with typography.


But I don't mind, because one of the best ways to incorporate vintage finds into decor is through interesting storage items like old boxes, drawers, totes, bins, etc. These all fit the bill perfectly!


The large box in the middle is an antique banana crate. The typography, wood and old red paint is amazing. ($89 - this thing is huge!)


I fell in love with the whisky crate the moment I saw it since Matt is a teacher. I hope it goes to a good home, perhaps of another teacher!


I am an absolute sucker for vintage black and white street signs and I found a whole lot of them recently! I have two eighth street signs, two eleventh and a ninth street. They'll be $25 each if I can bear to let them go : ) I also have the large C&H sugar sack, a small one and two medium size blue striped sugar sacks.

 

 

I absolutely love the old hardware on these vintage drawers. They would be perfect for stashing just about anything.


And last but not least, I found this gorgeous antique mirror. I absolutely love the shape, detailing and de-silvered glass.


I do plan to paint it before taking it to the shop. The lines are gorgeous but the wood is a bit tired, and I think it would come alive if it were white or at least whitewashed.


I also found this great gray farmhouse bench with a shelf below it. It has already found the perfect home at Abbe's new house under her kitchen window : )


 If you're local, The Cottage is open February 21 and 22 from 9 - 6. We're at 137 N. Oliver in Kechi. Hope to see you there!
