Antique Shopping!


My husband and I went to the Ponchatoula Antique Trade Days Arts and Crafts Festival this weekend.  That is in Louisiana near Baton Rouge.  I had a great time and came home with some wonderful accessories!  I am not sure he had quite as much fun…

The festival is a combination of stores and outdoor booths.  Sometimes antique stores can be overwhelming, so I like to search for just one or two types of items to make it easier.  This trip, I was looking for home accessories…specifically glass items or brass objects. 

Here are the fabulous things I brought home:

Brass Animals!  I got the crane for under $4 (yea!!), then found the same one later for $25.  Score!   Brass Animals

This glass vase looks like it could have been from Murano, Italy!  It was the most expensive item we bought…at a whopping $24.50!

Glass Vase

I inherited a similar glass bird from my Mamaw, so I was thrilled to find it some friends (for under $4)!

This battery operated clock isn’t antique, but it will look great repainted in a bright color ($8)!










These glass urns are opaque black.  They are stunning in person and I can’t wait to find the perfect place for them in our home!  And they were $15 each!

I love a good bargain and feel great about the items we bought!  Here are some other interesting items that we did not buy:

Pink vases!  I love them, but they definitely would not match our current décor.

I hope you enjoyed seeing our trip to Ponchatoula! 

And thanks to my very patient husband for tagging along and carrying the heavy items!
