I was so excited to learn the Scott Antique Market and Haven landed on the same weekend back in July and immediately shifted my plans to go at the end of the conference.
Of course I had a blast! But, I’ve never gone on the last day so, although I knew it would be picked over and certain I missed out on some incredible treasures –I was anxious to see what crazy deals might be available too!
The vendor wanted $25 –even with the missing lid– because it was a higher quality piece. But when I pointed out that it also had a missing leg we settled on $7!
First thing I did was polish it up to see its true beauty! Then I took it to a local jeweler to re-balance the 3 legs and carefully bend back the one smashed in handle, $15. Ultimately, I want to plant an ivy in it and use it in a vignette in the kitchen, but first it will be a vase for some late summer blooms.
Once I plant the ivy in it, the spigot can be opened for drainage if it gets over-watered (which my mom tends to do).
I saw lots of amazing things at Scott –which I’ll share tomorrow-
but for now, let me share one more simple-cool find (from our Kinderhoook trip) you know I love urns~and this cutie was only $4.50!
btw–I’m sharing these finds with Southern Hospitality!
