I’m finally sharing my birthday antique haul with you guys! I’m so excited to show you all the treasures I found.
My birthday antique haul is a good one, guys! I found some awesome treasures and I can’t wait to style them throughout my home.
For more information and closeups on all my finds, be sure to watch the YouTube video linked above! I have another post here where I share all my tips on antique shopping and how to find the best deals if you’d like to check it out!
I didn’t do any blogging last week because we were on vacation, but if you really love antique shopping, I did actually share a YouTube video last Saturday that included all of our antiquing while at the cabin! There are some great little antique shops nearby and we found some neat stuff! It was a fun video to make and I always love taking you guys along!
So every year on my birthday my Mom takes me antique shopping. Even at 32 years old, it gets me so giddy and excited and I can barely sleep the night before. We spend the whole day looking for treasures and break for lunch together as well. It’s one of my favorite things about summertime and I honestly cherish it every single year.
My Birthday Antique Haul
The first thing I found on our antique hunt was a beautiful vintage print from the 1950’s. It’s a lovely neighborhood scene with cottages and even water in the background. It reminded me of our hometown which is right on the lake, and for $12 I had to bring it home.
The next thing I found were these beautiful blue and white German canisters. I loved the wooden lids and they will go perfectly in my dining room or kitchen. They were $8 each.
Later that day at another antique store I found some canisters that were very similar, but they didn’t have lids. I loved the soft blue scene on them, though, and they were $10 for the pair! At that price I had to bring them home. I love blue and white dishes and I can’t wait to incorporate them into my kitchen decor.
I found a neat little wooden spoon for just a few dollars as well, and I have been on the hunt for a unique spoon rack for my dining room but I haven’t found the right one yet! Etsy has some really neat ones but like I said, I’m still looking. The bowl and crock you see on the ground below were finds from my antique shopping up near the cabin.
I also found a really neat galvanized scoop for $12, I loved the patina of the wood and the weathering of the metal. It looks so beautiful sitting in a box that my mom spotted underneath another piece of furniture that was only $10. It has unique little legs and such a pretty color. I think I will display them both on my dining room table.
My next treasure was this gorgeous collection of 5 copper pitchers. The antique shop manager had to call the booth owner for me and said they were $10 a piece. My Mom offered $40 for the set and they accepted! I was so thrilled!! She got them for me for my birthday and they might just be my favorite birthday find ever. I love copper and I can’t wait to find the perfect place to display these. Each one is so unique and I just love them so much.
The large crock you see has such a beautiful antique glaze and I got it for $20. I love how it looks filled with flowers and if you have checked the prices of antique crocks recently, they are SO expensive! I really thought $20 was a great deal for this one.
The rustic wooden peg rack was another find while shopping up north! I think I might end up using it in my guest bathroom for towels. We’ll see!
The last thing I wanted to share was the neat vintage fan you see. I didn’t actually get it with my mom, I got it up north while I was on vacation. We were driving back from the lake one day and saw a garage sale and decided to stop. The fan was only one dollar!! I was so thrilled because I love vintage fans and I have always wanted one in my bedroom. My husband replaced the cord and it works perfectly!
So there’s my birthday antique haul! What do you guys think? Did I find some great deals? Spend too much on anything? I’d love to know in the comments below!
