I've collected photos of my favorite vintage finds in 2016. Some of them I sold in my Etsy Shop, some at our Hob Nobbers Occasional Sales, and some I kept. Others will be for sale in our Hob Nobbers Sale or Etsy's shop.
You'll find that I like the old Rustic and Farmhouse style decor. The first one is this old box with its cute hooks. I love to use old boxes for storage and I love the Farmhouse style look. This one sold on Etsy!
The next item is also a favorite. This cute little desk and chair which I sold at our Occasional Sale.
This large primitive dough bowl sold also. I'll keep looking for more of these! Love it!
I hauled this amazing Library rolling ladder home from Naples, Florida! I sold it at our Hob Nobber sale. Both sides have large wooden steps and had been used as a book shelf.
Are you seeing a pattern here? Lots of wood! Next up is an antique child's folding table and chair. This has not sold yet and I'm so surprised. It's adorable and the color is amazing! I've envisioned this not only as a child's item but cute vintage decor pieces. But for a child, how cute would it be in a garden setting with a little plant on the table? This is still for sale in my Etsy Shop, Gwen And Alma's!
Below is another REALLY favorite piece. I had never seen anything like this before. This is a unique antique German wooden trencher or trough. The couple I purchased this from were collectors and were downsizing. They had used this as a blanket holder at the end of their bed. So my Hob Nobber partner, Karen, purchased it. And she is now using it in the same way. We often buy each other's treasures!
This is a vintage ice cream stool with a wooden seat. Love, love, love it! Not sold yet!
I love the color blue and I love stoneware bowls so this was on "My Favorites List" for sure! This sold in my Etsy Shop. I'll be looking for more for sure!
This is a blue enamel Norwegian tin. The reason this was a favorite is because I had two of the same set. So you know I had to keep this one to complete the set! Can you believe that I had two of a set of these from Norway and then happened to find the third in an Estate Sale in another state? I didn't even know there WERE three of them! I had purchased the other two from a friend who collected Scandinavian treasures and was downsizing in retirement. The other tins say, "Sabe" and "Borster". I've had a hard time trying to find the definitions but the closest I've come is that "Sabe" is "Soap", "Borster" is "Brush" and "Soda" is "Soda". Apparently soda was kept years ago in bathrooms. So my guess is that these might have been hung in bathrooms to hold items used there. If anyone out there has better knowledge of the definitions, let me know.
This next one is something I had not seen before. I couldn't even find another one like it on the internet, and every antique collector I asked had not seen another either. So this is RARE! I sold it in my Etsy Shop to some lucky person! Just love the little soap dish attached to this enamelware!
