Fabulous fall fun at Sage FarmPosted: October 10, 2014 | |
Last weekend’s “Of Autumns Past” show at Sage Farm was all-out beautiful. Lots of natural wood, harvest colors, and sparkling lights. Here are a few of my favorite things.
I loved this shapely green bench! The dealer said he’d got it from the elderly original owners. It was Hitchcock or Hitchcock-style when it was new, and after the black paint wore off they painted it green, and after the green wore off it they didn’t do a thing more. Genius.
There were lots of pieces with drawers, including several huge and amazing apothecary cabinets. I couldn’t get good photos of them because it seemed there was always a customer or two standing smack in front trying out the drawers and figuring where o where they’d put them in their houses.My very favorite cabinet of drawers, though, belonged to my booth-next-door neighbor. She showcased a three-stack of hardrock maple library card catalog drawers, complete with the brass pulls and the little pull-out shelves. I just love these. I don’t have a place to put one, but by golly I’m still going to carry that torch and you can’t stop me. And then my neighbor kicked the color factor up a notch by loading this old parts drawer on top.
There was a huge set of Johnson Brother’s “Friendly Village” china, with all the hard-to-find pieces like the giant platter and the covered tureen.
This lovely deep orange wool blanket coat was a size small—too tiny for me, alas. The woman who bought it wouldn’t let anyone carry it down to the checkout room for her. I think she didn’t want to let it go!
A great show!
