Antique Trail 2020


A  few  weekends ago, my mom and I

went on our yearly trek to find antiques

along the Lake Huron shoreline.

                 I did not find much for either of the stores,

and only three items for myself.

Mom stayed in the car while I wore my mask and went hunting,

This is a cow swatter. Although I am going to use it as something else.

My grandparents never swatted their cows either.

Next is this wall box.

Original red paint and rose head nails.
(nail seen at top left)
This piece is from the 1700's.
Another one for my collection from this time period.

Finally another pantry box.

I love this blue and the construction is as
solid as when it was made in the 1800's.

Just love this blue!


  1. WOW!! You hit the jackpot!! All three of those early pieces are gorgeous!! I purchased a handled pantry box last week, but it's not as neat as yours! I love the paint!! Have a good weekend!! It think it's monsoon season!!

  2. Oh those are great finds. I love the box. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  3. Good hunting! I'm sure you'll find more treasures in future hunts!

  4. Hi Janice,
    Yes, you did indeed hit the jackpot!! LOVE your new treasures and they will be perfect in your home!! Also, I just LOVE Tundra!! I had a friend who raised that breed and they were just wonderful dogs!! He is so darling and hope he makes progress fitting in!!! Have a great weekend!

  5. I’d say you scored. We hit the antique stores this week and I came home with just an old magazine

  6. You did well I have never heard of a cow swatter. My grandfather never used one either.

  7. Hmmmm....I grew up on a dairy farm and we NEVER swatted cows LOL. Love your wall box and pantry box.... Great and lucky finds!! Hope you have a good weekend shaping up! ~Robin~

  8. Nice finds!! I love the cow Kit

  9. 3 nice primitive finds. A crazy fly swatter...never saw that before.

  10. Glad to hear you aren't planning on swatting any cows, Janice!
