Yesterday, I showed off my antiquing score but didn't share any of the other goodies I spotted while I was out and about! Williamsburg, as always, didn't disappoint.
At my first stop, The Velvet Shoestring, I was immediately drawn to this decorative faux-malachite egg. Totally useless, way too fancy for most houses, but damn it would spruce up a foyer table or bookshelf! This was $28.
I was also crushing on this antique farm table (my dream table!), starting at $899 and going down to $557 if it doesn't sell by April.
For the price of an ugly metal one, you could have a gorgeous wood file cabinet with cool pulls. $199 and price is dropping in the next couple months!
I did a bit of a double take when I saw this vase with a watercolor-y pattern. I can just picture it full of gorgeous irises. I unfortunately forgot the price, but I think it was under $30.
Later in the same day, I killed time before an appointment at my favorite place, Williamsburg Antique Mall. Here's some items that caught my eye this time around. This teak-and-glass carafe is straight out of Mad Men but looks like something you'd find at Anthropologie and is a super affordable $20.
I would love to pop this enamel Hollywood Regency doorknob set on a bathroom door. Everyone needs a little glamour in the morning, right? A great item with character for $32.50!
If you're an artist or, I dunno, a butcher in your spare time, this antique paper roller and cutter is super cool. I mean, heck, it could make paper towels more interesting. $87.
So the average tray tables are probably about $40, right? How about you skip that and grab an antique painted one with an eagle motif for a sweet $18? Makes eating those TV dinners a little better, right?
I was the smitten kitten over this burl wood jewelry box that swung out. Seriously gorgeous and would make an amazing gift. $50.
