More of Bouckville 2012


Whenever I am at Brimfield or Bouckville I look for one of my favorite vendors...Keenan Antiques.


They always have a wonderful selection
 of many of my favorite things...


They travel to Europe and bring back lots
 of lovely English and French antiques.





It was from Pat and Gary that I bought my
 antique white French enamel canisters ...
...I love those canisters even more now
 than when I first found them ten years ago!

 




Besides Bouckville, NY and Brimfield, MA...
the Keenans display their hand selected decorative accessories
 in shows throughout Pennsylvania.


On Thursday...just before we left Bouckville,
 we ran into Gina from Vintage Junk In My Trunk.
It was good to catch up and compare notes on our treasure hunting.
She and husband Paul spend the week here each year!




Here is sister Lynn with, what we are pretty sure are,
 two boards from an old quilt frame.
We bought all four boards.
 I love the old ticking tacked to them and think that they would
 work great as pot racks or to hang herbs to dry...
...that is, of course, if they are not used for quilting! 


Lynn is somewhat of a doll collector...so this pic is for her.
She has accused me of writing on the face of my Shirley Temple doll when I was all of 8 years old...
...I have no recollection of that...she probably made up that story.

I must add that Lynn is a real trooper and kept her usual sunny,
 cheerful disposition throughout our three long days of trudging 
through fields of glorious antique treasures...my passion...not necessarily hers.


Anyway, I'm blessed to have two wonderful sisters who support,
  encourage and put up with all my shenanigans.






 
 


Yellow ware. 
Someday...I will unpack my collection and share photos with you.



I really loved this country cupboard.
If only I had a space for it.



I loved this booth.
The artist...elevated humble, everyday but interesting items
into objets d'art ...
...by mounting them and creating wonderful displays.







...and that's it for day 3 at Bouckville!
After we had a yummy lunch at Quack's Diner we headed out to Westmoreland, NY to a terrific multi dealer shop that had been recommended to us by Susan and Paul...one of the friendly and fun couples we met at the B&B we stayed at.
  I was able to find a few things to take home with me there too! 

Next up...a few photos of the treasures I found!

Hope you are all well...and enjoying the end of the summer!
:)

Thanks for sharing pictures with price tags..Interesting to me on the West Coast to see how prices compare. Not bad. Maybe now I can justify a trip there!

Hi Laura

I am a new follower and I have really enjoyed your photos. My husband and I went to Brimfield area and Bouckville a few years ago but not during the big market. It is a lovely area. I am also looking forward to seeing your treasures.

Marilyn said...

So many things here I would swoon over and have to take home. Blue stripes and transferware and bottles and jugs. Oh dear, I would go broke here.

Jennifer said...

Thanks so much for sharing! I wish I could go there. I see so many things I love! I've always wanted a collection of those old bottles. The dolls remind me of dolls my mother had too.

Sarah said...

Such wonderful items on sale. I love the Cornish ware. I have one special piece a friend from Cornwall looked high and low for to bring me.

I also love your William Henry Channing poem. It is one of my favorites.

Omgosh, look at all that yelloware! And all the blue and white banded pottery :) I want it all. That's being a bit greedy so I'll just take the yelloware :) Loi

Kris said...

My word, you had me at the first image! I love the blue and white pottery. (My favorite) After that image the rest was eye candy for me. I don't know how anyone can leave a place like that without a whole car load of things.

I never had a Shirley Temple doll but always wanted one in the worst way. My cousin had a Tiny Tears Doll that at the time cried real tears and I never had one of those either. Sigh...I feel like as a child I was deprived! HAH

Great images!

Hi Laura!
Love the Cornish ware blue and white!!!!! There isn't much left it seems...... I for one would love to see your yelloware.... I have some just a few...... It looks like this antiques venue had some great finds!!!!!!!!Maryanne xo

Bohemian said...

OMG... the Images of Cornish Pottery and French or British Enamelware brought back so many fond Memories of the quality of Antiques that I Love that we were always able to find abundantly in Europe but which are so very difficult to Source here! How fortunate that you have a Fav Vendor that makes the Trip to Source European Elements to Style your Home with and to Collect... I'm Green with Envy! *Winks*

Thanks for Sharing this Show, I felt as though I was along with you... only I didn't need deep pockets or a U-Haul whilst going Virtually. *LOL*

Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
