Ozark Mo. Eye Candy

Here are a few more things we
saw in the Antique Malls
in Ozark Mo.

How about that chandelier! 

This wicker glider
would have been wonderful when 
we lived in the old Victorian house.

Mecky this display above reminded me
 of you!

I loved this booth above!

I loved this 'possum belly' Hoosier
cabinet and that copper boiler
would have worked great for
our firewood beside the stove.

We had to be careful what we bought
 as we thought Donna's 
cupboard was going to fit in the
SUV. In the end it didn't!

I thought you would like to see
this valance.
How different!

Hubby said it looked like the 
spoons were just hot glued to the burlap.

Below are some of the treasures
I brought home with me.

I will probably paint this and age it.

I love the old hooks.

This is my favorite purchase.
I saw some new reproductions 
but I wanted the 'real deal'.

Most had been around $90
but I found this old
 one for $70!

I love the curved spout on this coffee pot.

I needed a place to put my jute string 
and saw this...I'm sure it's not old
but I don't care.
It's better than the plastic container
I have mine in now!

I love birdhouses made from old wood.
This one had a great corrugated
tin roof.

You can NEVER have enough
white ironstone ;)

I also bought a HEAVY
sign that hubby put up on the 
garden shed/chicken coop
for me.

an old green enamel 
barn lamp that hubby is 
going to make a 
goose neck for.

That will eventually go on the 
screened porch
once it's built. 

Well I hope you enjoyed
coming along for a jaunt around
a few of the Ozark antique
 malls with us.

Enjoy your weekend!
Maura :)

Hi Maure,
a very good pprice on the bread bin. These were my bread and butter when I did my English shopping trips. I use to get $140 for them back in
the day. They were so popular you couldn’t find them anymore. It’s amazing that anything survived the bombings in England during the
war but I suppose alot of them came from the country side.

Robin said...

Wow am I loving that bread box. I've been on the lookout for one that didn't cost and arm and a legs. You've given me hope. Great finds.

Hi Maura, I loved seeing all the treasures-oh how I would have wanted to buy. That is what is great when you get to the midwest and east, antiques are so affordable. Have a great weekend.

I have enjoyed your tours of the antique malls that you shopped. This is one of my favorite things to do also. I have to limit my purchases because I have such a small place. Love your purchases.

Oh everything is so wonderful. We seem to have similar tastes.

That chandelier is crazy fabulous - but what a big kitchen you would need, to have one that big - maybe a smaller version would be a decorating idea for my kitchen - hmmmm so much to ponder.

GardenofDaisies said...

WOW! The spoon and teacup chandelier is amazing! You found some wonderful treasures. I especially love the ironstone pitcher.

Country Gal said...

Oh I would love to be there ! So much wonderful things, great photos, Have a wonderful day !

Well, that chandelier is quite something. I am sure it is a one of a kind item. I guess you have to have "just the right setting" for something like that.The valance would go perfect with it.

I do have some "different" lighting sitting in my basement though - they were "what was I thinking" moments.

Like your choices.

Martha said...

Lovely treasures and that is a good buy on the bread box -- they have certainly went up in value and it looks like a good one.

Next trip out we'll have to go down to Ozark -- we've not been in a while and you've certainly whetted my appetite.

Love all of your finds!!!

That chandelier is quite something; I am sure it is a one of a kind. I guess you would really need just the right setting for it. It certainly would make an interesting conversation piece.

You made very nice choices.

Michaele said...

Wow! Awesome displays! Glad you got so many nice things. Bet it was really hard to narrow down your choices.

What a grand place !
I loved the chandelier, so unusual, and inventive.
The bread bin brings to mind that of my grandma's, she had one in the kitchen exactly the got it for a great price.
What a great trip, and a car load of pretties to enjoy in your precious cottage...

Mecky said...

I do like the red gingham and spice jars! That possum belley is really nice.
You did good on the bread box! I enjoy mine.

I would love to take off and go on a road trip!

Beverly said...

Wow!! What a great shopping trip you had....sounds heavenly. Wish I could have gone with you....but what a drive that would have been!! Great to see it all vicariously. LOVE that chandelier!!
Have a great weekend, Maura!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

OH I loved the tour Maura! And I love what you brought home with you, so many interesting things!
Hope all is well with you and that you have a nice weekend too!

Catherine said...

Hi Maura!
I love evrything! the lampshade is fantastic! the bread box and coffee pot too. I love your finds they will look great in your home. See you soon and have a good weekend, Hugs Catherine

Lynne said...

I love your finds, like the "twine keeper" and ironstone. Seeing the chandelier and getting a photo is the best "find" in the "oh my" department. And you didn't purchase because of expense? (smile)

Deb said...

Hey Maura:
Drop by and see the kittens. I have a link to your blog this morning. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x4 and a few more.

I love all the treasures you found, especially the bread box. I've been wanting one of those and that is a great price!

Mecky said...

I forgot to mention that I just love thos hooks on the message board. I have never seen any like that before!! So cool!

BTW, have fun tomorrow if you are planning to go You Know Where!! I can't be there and I will be sad all day!! I believe that the Unique Antique show is next weekend. I enjoy that. It is such a "woman's flea market" Lots of eye candy there!

what great treasures you came home with. You may want to check out Unique Antique Market this Sunday in Wichita, if your not to far away. 21st st and Ridge road at the Extention Ctr from 10 - 5 I always get there early to start gathering treasures. Have a great fall weekend

Neesie Natters said...

What a delightful post Maura. So many beautiful things. If only I was nearer to pick up a few treasures. Trouble is my air freight would cost an arm and a leg!
Love the bread box, which reminded me that my grandmother had one just like it....hmm....I wonder where that went?
I really enjoyed peeking into your shopping treasures.
Have a wonderful weekend. :D
