Saturday Sale June 27th! "Z" St in Vancouver 9-4.

We have many new items for you to see! See the May 14th post for map and directions!

Four nights in Paradise!

We had lunch with Shane and Emily at the Seattle waterfront and looked at antiques.
Drove past other vacationing (goose) families to Deception Pass,
where we camped and watched the Sunset.
Then 2 wonderful days at the Hotel in Roche Harbor where we ate, shopped and watched the Orca whales. Here's a view from the deck of our room.

We also antiqued in LaConner and brought new items for Saturday's Sale. This is Laura and her wonderful Moon Rose!

And more vintage finds and projects for the next sale on June 13th!

See hours and map and directions on the May 14th post!
This all wood storage bench has just a few rubbed spots where the poppy red-orange peeks through.
And what a sweet vanity! Redone in my now "famous" 5 step process, dressed with $12 each crystal "vine" hardware from Anthropologie, and the drawers are lined with ivory burlap!

What a wonderful old chest. The back says "Dull Ash". The veneer on the sides was too far gone to repair, so Glen painted them satin black.

We cleaned this bed up and upholstered the headboard in burlap. Sooo French, the style, Yes?

Recent finds and projects getting ready for the next sale at "Z" St.

Just got this rustic primitive bookcase and there will be more pictures posted tomorrow! We've been busy!
My first attempt at painting, antiquing and distressing.
This is an American primitive dough bowl, over 53" long. Common in Europe but rarely made in the USA.
Some call it a crawdad trap, I call it art!
We took an old rocker with broken cane and repaired it with upholstery webbing.

This wonderful eastlake mirror is over 100 years old!
