Tempting Finds, May Go Back for a Few Things

Welcome to the 682nd Metamorphosis Monday!

No big “Before and After” happening around here for today but I did get some inspiration from antiquing this weekend. The first place I visited was The Market in Woodstock, Georgia.


Saw this big guy just inside the front door.


I don’t know why I’m always drawn to sleds and toboggans since I absolutely can’t stand cold weather. They just make me think of happy, good times, I guess. These would be so fun to decorate a porch with during the fall and winter. The toboggan was priced at $150.


Another sled…love it mounted on the wall!


Beautiful Burlwood Highboy, $1,099


I was super tempted by these. They aren’t showing up well in this photo but the matting was a pretty green color. I may go back for these because I think they would work great on a wall in the hall/passage area off of my downstairs den/living room.


Interesting lamp! It was only $39.50. Love looking for lamps when I’m out antiquing.


Authentic Antique French Armoire: I couldn’t get over how reasonably priced this beautiful piece is! It was originally priced at $1,295 and is currently marked down to $895.


Beautiful details! You would never find this in furniture being manufactured today.


Just in awe of this piece!


I wish I had a place in my home for it. It’s pretty big and tall so would look great in a large room with high ceilings.


To give you an idea of how the booths look throughout this antique mall, I snapped a photo of the room. There’s that beautiful armoire on the right.


Antique High Chair: $350


Wish I’d had the time to look through all the books in this booth–they had a lot!


In the center of the store was this pretty gardening/greenhouse-looking area.



A peek inside…


Just across the street from The Market is another antique shoppe, Woodstock Antiques.


Lots of vintage dishes…




Can you imagine sewing on these today? I didn’t check the prices on all of them but one of the ones on the second shelf down was $45.


I was intrigued by this 19th Century Swiss music box.


I guess these are the songs that it plays.


Look at the gorgeous inlay!


I think it was priced at $4,200, must be a pretty rare piece. I remember years ago going into a home on a Christmas home tour and one of the homeowners was in the living room of the home, playing this huge music box in the center of the room. I wonder now if it was a Swiss Music Box. The sound coming from it was HUGE, I couldn’t believe all that gorgeous music was emanating from that small music box–it was like having an orchestra playing in the room! I wonder if this music box sounds would sound the same way?


There were a couple of other things that caught my eye that I may go back for today–trying to decide. If I do, I’ll be sure to share those in an upcoming post. This trip really lit the antiquing bug in me again! I also visited Old Time Pottery but this post is so long, I’ll share that trip in another post. I was super tempted by some flatware I saw in OTP but it was priced a bit higher than I would have liked.

Looking forward to all the wonderful Before and Afters linked for this week’s Met Monday!
