Decorating With Garden Antiques And Collectibles Found At The Colllinsville Antiques Company Of New Hartford, Connecticut

Loving This 1940s
Flower Cart I Found At The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, Connecticut

I have been out hunting for garden and porch stuff and lo and behold, I found fabulous finds at The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, Connecticut.

Shopping In My Own Booth

And where did I find these precious garden accessories?

Shabby Works my very own booth. Now how much fun is that shopping in your very own booth. (Of course I bought some of these patio collectibles from other dealers over the years, but now they made it into my booth. The yellow chair is a chippy shabby child's chair that has been in my booth with a box of paper collectibles resting on it. Look how cute it looks on the porch with a colorful plant.

Decorating With Vintage Garden And Patio Accessories

The price was right (taking home goodies from my very own booth) I felt really pleased. And I can't believe I actually decided to part with some of my 1940s kitsch n collectibles and USE my garden accessories on my very own porch! Up until now, I was not interested in "wasting" good collectibles that I could sell. But, guess what, I am making a breakthrough...and finally decorating my own house...inside and outside.

  1. I have that exact little wheelbarrow in my booth (unless it sold!) - I'm longing for it a little bit now that I've seen yours!
