Last weekend Andrew and I made a little trip to Waltham, MA to check out a new hot spot for affordable and interesting vintage and antique wares in the Boston area. A collection of various vendors, this space-while on the smaller side-really packs a big punch with lots of interesting finds at different price points. And since antiquing can be my favorite form of cardio (Brimfield being the marathon of the sport) I love searching out new, hidden resources not only for me but for you too!
Here are some of the the things I spotted last weekend and see my tips for antiquing at the end of the post!
I wanted this mirror- but I have no place for another mirror. Oh wait, my office needs a mirror. SHOOT. Also of note, a bevy of candlesticks.
Early American style antiques can be found here too- this little chair was darling.
Some vintage wine bottles and a pair of antique rams that would be amazing flanking a fireplace or door!
This dresser had already been repainted a lovely grey, very pretty. And two great old chairs just begging for a makeover (especially that left one!)
This pair of gold dog bookends went home with me! :) And that buffet underneath them was GORGEOUS too.
This huge brass platter was probably 3.5 feet in diameter and I thought how incredible it would be hanging on a wall above a sofa or bed. I should have bought that one too. Also these two totally unique painted architectural remnants that would be INSANE on a mantle or as book ends.
More chairs and a HUGE print from the play Six Degrees of Separation. Also lots of cool sconces and such.
Awesome mirror and various objects.
These mid-century side tables were sold, but also that armoire!!!! SO COOL.
This long bench was lovely and topped with some old riding boots.
Another antique bench (like the one in my post yesterday) that I loved and have no place for- topped with the CUTEST vintage child’s chair EVER and a set of the coolest brass sconces. Piles of goodness. :)
More fabulous chairs and a selection of vintage metal letters.
A gorgeous re-painted curio cabinet, just gorgeous accompanied by a row of old paintings.
This old sailboat was HUUUUUUUUGE, about 9 feet tall. If anyone has a cavernous, massive beach house this was the coolest!
Another grouping of lovely. The paint layers on that armoire is so pretty.
These andirons were so, so wonderful, but broken. You could prop up the back on bricks though! And another vintage chair deserving of a nice re-upholstery job.
These two chairs were super unique- great as occasional chairs in a formal living room or bedroom.
Great metal bowls and an old croquet set.
A stack of rug ready to be flipped through.
