Amazing french antique mall booth

I sure have been doing a lot of blog posts lately
haven't I? I go from one or two a week to several,
but I have just had a couple of very interesting
weekends that I had to share with you.

On the way up to visit with our
daughter and her family we stopped at an
antique mall that I found on our last visit.
I was in awe when I found a french
booth this time around. I loved everything
about it...all the goodies and the displays so let
me take you along with me today. I know
you will love it too!
This is the cutest ever vintage french water glass
and carrier. I opened it up and inside is a small
clear glass that says, "made in france" on
the bottom. I had never seen anything like it
before. So cute!!

Neat french style pillow in an old bed.

I also adore old gates! someday...*sigh* Can you say french seltzer bottles? I also thought this wire plant stand was a keeper.
I reallyyyy wanted the papers underneath the french
pharmacy boxes with the french writing, but they were
for display only. I looked and looked for a price and could
not find any. Bummer.
French cemetary urn...very small compared
to what I see here.
I love enamel number signs.
I am thinking of doing something like this
to an oval frame I have and using it for
a wreath. I think I can figure something out
along those lines. :)

{the linens you see in the middle of it are not part
of this booth. They are showing through the window
from another booth}

Truthfully I could have just bought the whole booth
if my pocketbook would have allowed.ha!

Loved these doorknobs too , but a girl can only have
so much stuff right?? I am already cleaning out stuff
and donating it to the church garage sale so I need to
be really choosy with what I bring home. If I still
had a booth I would not be so choosy because I could
just schlep it up there eventually.
Neat little zinc trays...I looked at these for a long time
as well.

I wish I had gotten a better photo of this darling
vintage french lunchpail. It was light blue enamel
with white speckles and it had a little removable
tray underneath the lid. So, so cute!

I know there were a lot of photos and I hope you enjoyed
your tour of the french booth. I took so many photos in
it that I am surprised they didn't chase me out! :)

You have found the coolest stuff lately!!
I am in love with the ruffles from your previous post and now am on a homegoods hunt ~ do you have the item number still on it ? I want one really bad :)


Irene said...

I'm always amazed at your shots, and even more so by some markets that don't let you take pictures, talk about free advertising.

I would LOVE to have the vintage water bottle thingy!
I have made water bottle carriers for the french flea but NOTHING as cool as that one!
22 days until you are here!

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hi Sandi... everything is just fabulous!... what did you end up with? I love it all... but like you, I think I need to donate some of my stuff to one of the local church's rummage sales... only problem is, I always end up going to their sales and bringing someone elses stuff back home!... xoxo Julie Marie

Leslie said...

Thank you Sandi for taking all the wonderful pictures of my booth...and sharing them on your blog..

Thank you for taking us with you to look at all the wonderful treasures, Sandi! I can very well understand that you were tempted to buy lots of those things.
Have a great weekend!

Sandi, I love the little basket glass holder. Wonder how many of those were ever made. My mother-in-law had a collapsible plastic cup, she used to carry in her purse, for getting a glass of water to take her meds. I always thought it was neat. I also loved that old gate:)Smiles, Susie

This is a fab booth!!! I would have broke the budget shopping just there! *winks* I wonder, does she have a Blog, Etsy Shop or website? And from your more recent Post it shows what a wonderful kind, generous Spirit she has as well.
