Mini Vacation/Buying Trip Finds

As promised here's some of the woderful goodies I picked up while Mr. EA and I were on our trip.  Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did buying them.  If you live close to Pelham, AL or just driving through stop by and take a look!  I'm there on Mondays and Fridays working for Consigning Interiors and Antiques.  I'm also there many other days fluffing my booth.  I would love to meet you so please say hello if you see me.
This HUGE enamel tray would look awesome corralling all your necessities on the coffee table.

This is a handmade table, don't you love the glass knobs?
I decided to take a chance on these two antique golf bags.  The one in the cabinet is a Stove Pipe bag and is made of canvas and leather.  It even has several old golf balls in the pocket! The other is all canvas with a webbing type shoulder strap.  The piece of wood you see is part of the bag.
I love this old Tip Top bread crate.  It is HUGE!  I did some research and the Tip Top bread company was based in Australia.  But here's what I found really interesting, inside the box there is a stamp that says the box was made by a company in Birmingham, AlabamaI also love the grain sack material.  I found six yards of it cut into 1 1/2 yard pieces.  Below is a picture of it rolled out.  This picture is full of great STUFF!  Check out the piano rolls under the cloche.  Have you seen the current Restoration Hardware catalog? Take a look at page 30 & 31.  You can get all five of the piano rolls, the cloche with a base for less than what the cloche alone would cost from RH! Oh don't forget about the tole tray, I got that at an auction. 
Don't miss the antique camera!
There are two of these fabulous windows!  They are out of a very old Shot Gun house in Mobile, AL.

This antique desk is in the mission style and is made of tiger oak.  Just so you know, I did NOT put the rollers on the desk.  But because of them I was able to get the desk at a great price so that means you can get it at a great price.  It is still a beautiful piece of furniture. 

Wow! Can you believe I have two pieces of furniture in my booth that are not painted?

Ok the last of the pictures.

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you around!
