Fabulous fall fun at Sage FarmPosted: October 10, 2014 | Author: luray | Filed under: Sage Farm | Tags: Antiques and Collectibles, apothecary bottles, Friendly Village, halloween decorating, Sage Farm, vintage library card catalog |2 Comments
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 was spooky stuff galore for Halloween decorating. Several dealers featured vintage apothecary bottles—complete with original labels but minus the poisonous contents!
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!
I saw something I fell in love with at a local antique mall I think you would also appreciate. Not sure how to attach pictures but would love to share it here.
