Hello Friends and Happy Friday!
This week flew by for me.....again!
This week I spent time prepping for the Wertz Brothers Antique Marts Storewide Sale.
We have a big sale three times a year and I look forward to it!
The Mart starts buzzing with dealers (approx. 150) packing their booths to the brim with new finds.
I have been waxing, polishing, dusting, and fluffing hoping to lure people into by booths!
I thought I would share a few photos of some things I took in this week.
These are a few assorted sizes Antique French wine bottles and Demi Johns I have for sale in the booth.
I love to use these in my home, I have an assortment of them on top my kitchen cabinets.
One thing you will almost always find in my booths are lots of horns sheds,
both dark and naturally sun bleached ones.
I adore the bleached ones with white decor!
Another love for my home, as well as for the store, is leather books.
These lovelies are Paris France c.1893.
A white marble top printing cabinet c.1910 with Antique French bottle rack.
above is a huge ships rope and vintage industrial metal basket.
One of my booths has more manly things....vintage black leather jacket, vintage motorcycle boots, riding boots, tin signs and tool boxes etc.
I think one of the things that inspires me most is nature.
I have always had things for display and sale such wasp nests, birds nests, birch branches, turtle shells, coral, moss etc.
Above are vintage chippy gray wall sconces with ram's.
A staple is antique white ironstone...... and hotel silver bowl filled with white coral.
Oh and I forgot to mention, it's sitting on a vintage buffalo hide that is sooooo soft!
This is a gorgeous giant clam shell.
Here is a pair of huge terra cotta capitols with original chippy paint from a turn of the century building.
Well thats all for now, thanks for taking a look!
Now I'm off to prep for selling at the Ventura Flea Market that's happening this Sunday at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.
I only do flea markets a couple times a year and it's that time!
My shed and garage are overflowing......
The forecast is possible scattered showers....... please No!
It's going to be a great fun day no matter what.....rain or shine!
