School House Treasures Antique & Gift Center


This is the place where I now have a small booth and am beginning to sell some of the many things I have collected over the years.
  It is also a place that I have shopped at for years
 and found many treasures!


Each booth is unique and carries a mix of antiques, collectibles and sometimes crafts and new gift items too.


I snapped a few pictures of things that caught my eye
 when I was there last week.
 They aren't the best photos but hopefully
 you can get a sense of the place.
Enjoy!


























And...here is a peek at a corner of my little booth
 all decked out for the Fourth of July!

If you are in the area of Broadalbin, New York...
please stop by....you are sure to find something special at 
School House Treasures!

I have met quite a few of the other dealers...
...all of whom have been very kind and helpful to me. 
So far, it has been fun.

 My Dad helped me set up my display...
...we used shutters from the old farmhouse as well as the old apple picking ladder and apple boxes from the barn to create "walls".
 Mr. Flea has been very helpful too and is thrilled to have me move some of this stuff out of his living areas!

I have so many things to get priced
 and bring down to my little booth.
We went up in the attic yesterday and am pretty sure there is enough inventory up there to last the summer!

What cool stuff! The numbers "52" in your booth look like they are old pump prices from a filling station. I have a stack of them at my farm estate sale. I sure long for the days when gas was 52 cents a gallon, and I'm old enough to remember when they were ;-).

I like the variety at the School house, I also see a green floral crock that is exactly like the one on top of my fridge! I like those wicker wrapped bottles in your space, looking good!

I wish you all the success in the world on your new venture. It looks adorable and I am dying to visit! Will you still be opening an Etsy shop?

Welkom op mijn blog said...

Hello, what a beautiful blog you have. I live in Holland and am working on my house to turn into a flea market style. Visit flea markets and shops I like and sometimes I leave on my blog to see what I bought. My other passion is painting, and some of my paintings on my blog let me see. In the future I make a website for my paintings. I really like to follow someone who lives far away, so I have subscribed to your blog. You are welcome to a visit on my blog. Kind regards, Louise
