Liberty Antiques Continued

Yesterday's post was photos of some of the quilts at Liberty if you missed it. The pictures I share aren't even as good as seeing booth set ups in person. I love old things.

Crocks! OMG....land of crocks. I have several that I purchased while living in Europe. I won't afford the prices of these!

Maybe next time I should get some photos of the wonderful furniture pieces! There were many.

One thing I always look for is a great deal on spools. They are getting harder to find and the prices getting ridiculous! I scored two to add to what I already had.

I was also asked what I bought...well, besides the spools I scored on another saw. I use them for hanging quilts. This photo shows a saw on the wall I got last year. The one down on the floor is the one I just bought. It is a brighter red and blends with my home perfectly. A word about saws.....don't buy the first you see! These are out there. I got this one for only $15 in fantastic shape. The antique show vendors were selling them upwards of $50!

I've shown the saw below before. But was asked what I do with them so here is another example. In my home is rakes and ladders as well. They've been posted in older post.

I love the old wooden spools too. I have many but could always make room for more. The crocks are Wonderful and quilts look so good next to them.
Love the way you have hung your quilts on the wall.

Oh the spools delight me but the saws - now that's a great idea. There's all sorts of those back home. I'll have to get my dad on this. Wait. He's a dude. No way is going to want to hunt for one then ship it East. What was I thinking?

Sherri said...

What great pieces! The spools look so big in the picture...not sure I've ever seen any like that! We just don't have antiques or any place to shop for them here in southern Nevada.

Cindy said...

Oh my word - I LOVE the pics of all the "old" things. What fun, not ever knowing what "finds" you'll come across. I guess that's why I love garage sales, rummage sales and swaps.

Julia said...

Me too!...I love old things.
Great way to display your quilt!
Julia ♥

Janet said...

Wendy said...

I now have a saw on my wall with a mini quilt, all thanks to you posting about yours last year....I absolutely love it. Thanks for taking us to the antique market, the quilts are wonderful to see. We almost ever see quilts in my area.

Kaaren said...

What a cool idea, Mary! I might even have one of those saws hanging out in my shed.

Along with pincushions, you can never have too many crocks...and yelloware! Just ask me!

Dawn Heese said...

Awesome! Wish I was there.

The Quilt Buddy said...

Hey Mary!

You have an awesome eye for decorating and creating!

Judy said...

WO the spools are so great, I need to visit a few antique shows around here for a saw. I see one in my future one day!

Nicole said...

What amazing treasures! And you have such fabulous ideas on how to use them!

Candace said...

Next time you have an antique show - I want to fly out and go with you, Mary! What great stuff!
Cheers!

Carrie P. said...

Thanks for sharing those pictures. That is a neat way to use the saw. I wonder if I bought one if my husband would actually let me use it to hang quilts?

Karen said...

I love old things too! What a fun day!

Stephanie said...

What a fantastic and unique idea for displaying quilts! As for the spools...I have a little collection myself!

I love the way you hang your quilts. Very cool. Love the quilts that are hanging too.
I see some furniture I'd love to buy in that one photo.

Teresa said...

Never in a million years would I have thought of hanging quilts on those saws, but they look wonderful - very creative. Thanks for sharing all the pictures of both the quilts and the antiques. Looks like a fun show - is it every year? This would be something my husband and I would enjoy seeing.
