The one with the recent new finds

Just a few new things: old beautiful books are flying out the door. These dollhead molds are amazing. Below is the new Laura Zindel handmade ceramics, I love her stuff so much! I've sold quite a few pieces already so she is making more for me. She has a thing for insects, but also does botanicals and birds. Also available is her line of microwave and dishwasher safe dinnerware made in upstate New York. I will have a set here so you can see that every piece has a different variation on a theme.

These are old printing plates for some sort of gambling games. They have been mounted and are now art.

Also a great pair of very old German wooden suitcases. Big and beautiful.
A couple of newly recovered and restyled upholstered pieces. Wing chair is covered in a great tiny cotton check. Beautiful sofa in the most wonderful linen, down cushions. Both of these are a small scale perfect for smaller older homes.

Cherry standing secretary desk. Circa 1810, American. This piece is sooooo good.
This is just one of 5 huge vintage Mexican posters from a school, there are maps and all sorts of wonderful teaching tools. I think the fonts and the colors are so great.
An old milkman box. You set the dial and he sticks your purchases in the back. Cool.
Another of my wonderful clocks by the artist I found in New York. This is called "shattered".
I just love manzanita, and my good friend Tamara gave me a nice big branch when I was up at her store in Auburn, helping her rearrange and merchandise. Below is her new front window display. Clearly I had a little bit of a hand in this, all whites and creams. The rest of her shop is much more colorful. Her stores blog is here. She's going to Texas with me next week for the antique fair. It's her first time, I'm so excited to see what she finds, and hope we don't end up fighting over things :) Just kidding, Tam. I walk the fields alone a lot, so we should be ok, plus she loves color, and well, I don't, unless it's the perfect faded red or blue...Will post my great finds as soon as I get them.
