2nd Time Around: Higher End Antiques


Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.


Although painted furniture seems to be the rage, there are still wood pieces that I am attracted to. At the newest place where I have the jewelry booth I wrote about a couple of weeks ago, there are some ‘high’ end antiques that are in the booths there.

I don’t have space for these pieces, but love both of them. I have a similar tea cart at one of my antique booths for a whole lot less than the asking price for this one. I’m interested in seeing if and when it sells!


And I love this cabinet with the beveled glass doors. I don’t know enough about all the old furniture styles and wood, but I wonder if it is  Victorian and maybe mahogany. If anyone can give me information about it, please do! I have a good friend who thought about purchasing it for her newly remodeled living room, but the price of $1500 made her change her mind!


So, do you like either of these? The painted furniture craze has not hit this venue, but I’m thinking it will soon. Several more vendors are on the way, and customers are beginning to stop by and actually buy some things! I’ve already sold enough jewelry to pay my rent, which is not too bad for only 7 days into the month!

I love the cart and the Venetian mirror next to the cabinet. I don't know what it is about them, but those mirrors always catch my eye.
