What's old is new

This is my place to show off the items I would call vintage, things I have either refinished or kept as is and find interesting. I am still a kid at heart bringing home what some might call junk and am always in search of that buried treasure. I am not a picker and I am not a hoarder, working with my hands on my own time repairing or refinishing the things I find brings me peace of mind and time to myself to contemplate whatever has transpired in my life or time to just zone out and concentrate on the task at hand. Some items for sale or possible trade just ask..click on my profile and send me an email.

Teak Lamp-Serving Dishes & other musings

Just hit Value Village on the way home from the 9-5 and scored some decent pieces. I have a lamp that I posted in an earlier blog that has the look of of a tulip but the shade doesn't suit it well so I'll swap it to this one and keep looking for a better match for the other. I'm not a huge fan of these serving dishes but it's green my fav colour. I'll be putting the polish on both these items and storing away with my growing inventory until the outdoor antique market in Aberfoyle,Ontario opens in May. I'm kinda pumped about trying out the market as vendor for one day (first time). Christie Conservation area is the big one twice a season but the two day space rental is crazy money for a rookie who's never done it. There's also the Locke St festival in Hamilton in the summer which I wouldn't even have to rent a space as my girlfriend lives only a couple houses in off Locke St which is a trendy vintage/antique/one of kind street in a very heavily foot trafficked strip so I could have a pseudo yard/vintage/antique sale of my own on the tiny postage stamp front lawn all while still being within distance of my own supply of cool beverages. LOL
