adventures in antiquing

All I want to do these days is peruse antique shops and flea markets. It’s not normal… A few weekends ago I stopped into the Bridgehampton Historical Society for their yearly show and spotted a pair of gorgeous English trunks. I went home and couldn’t get them out of my head, so the next day I put on my best negotiating face and went back to pick them up. Now they’re all mine!

If I had limitless funds I would’ve picked up a whole slew of pieces from the German mid-century porcelain section (if you’re interested, you can find a good bit of this on etsy here) and as I was leaving, I couldn’t stop admiring these sweet little shell sculptures. I’m on a mission for the rest of the summer to collect enough clam shells to DIY my own version.

This past weekend was a bit gloomy so again I went out treasure hunting, this time in Sag Harbor. I headed to Sage Street (a favorite among locals), Ruby Beets (my absolute favorite antique shop these days – where my mom picked up this brass sailboat), and Monc XIII (a gorgeous shop that I wrote about last week with quite high price tags). If you ever make it out East, I highly recommend you check out all three!

Have you found any gems recently? I’d love if you would share!

      Thanks Gaby! Now I’m struggling to place them. Coffee table, side tables, end of the bed… So many options!
