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:
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!
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:
Blue and white vase with stand
Some different styles of bar carts
Gorgeous chairs! If only we had the space…
This elephant table is so fun!
Antique gas pump
Pretty marble-top table
Fun monkey vase! (Seth wouldn’t go for this one!)
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!
