Old Found Treasures

Sometimes Bob and I find things for our store in the most unusual places...
this is one of those instances.

Usually Bob sells at our local flea market on Sundays,
but this past Sunday I decided to go with him.
Don't ask me why I chose to get up at 4 in the morning tho. LOL

I did find some nice things to add to our store tho,
and being a vendor you get first choice before the customers.

However the best finds for the day were when my fellow antique dealer
who happens to be one my best friends since I was 17
 picked me up to go to some garage sales in her hometown.

Carmel and I went to a few places with no luck.
Then we went to this sale in her parent's former house.
The new owner was very gracious,
and if I had my camera with me,
I would have asked her permission to have taken pics of her home.
She was in the process of remodeling this very old Victorian lady,
and even Carmel was impressed with what she was doing.

There were no great finds at the sale,
however when Carmel told her that I was also a dealer in prims,
she took us to the garage...and this is what Bob and I took to the store
 after the flea market was over.

This possum belly bakers table.

A two board wood top from the 1800's 

I knew this early piece would be going in the van once Bob saw it.
Do I know my Bob!

This dry sink has a metal insert and drain.
Someone also drilled a hole in the back for plumbing,
and added the spickets.
Could you see this in your prim bath redo?
I know I could, so if it does not sell soon,
it may have to come back home to our bathroom.

Take care everyone


  1. Oh Janice, Thanks so much for shaing your great finds. The possum belly bakers table. It is a beautiful piece as well as the dry sink. Girl, always take your camera with ya!(ha) I am learning to. I use to take a little purse but Holly has taught me to always bring along a camera. So I have graduated to one a little bigger. But I still get excited sometime and forget I have it. Just "ain't" as young as I use to be. Bet neither of those items will stay in your shop long. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Great pieces and sounds like you had a fun day.

  3. Oh I am so lovin both of your finds. I love love that possum belly bakers table. I could just see myself making some pies on that. SO COOL.
    Thanks for sharing
    Have a wonderful day!

  5. Those are the best "finds" I've seen in a long while!! Love them both, but I WANT that baker's table!!! Oh my heck!! Hmmmmm....where I would put it is another story....but that's just incredible!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  6. Sinks could exist made to accommodate a shoppers wants for a specific purpose. You could buy them in either single or twice sinks, and come in a broad selection of sizes shapes and colors
