Usually at the end of the Bouckville days our truck is loaded with furniture and other large items -- like the giant blue scale we got last year -- but this time we weren't really finding those sorts of things.
I'm not really sure of the reason -- we have been doing this for many years and our house is full up of stuff, and although I do sell at a few antique/vintage shows a year, we don't do any extravaganza-type shows. We also don't have a shop at which to sell those "extras".
But honestly, neither Mr. VJIMT nor I saw anything we "had to have". Well, except for this, which I promptly purchased.
I lovvveee the color -- although it looked more blue-green in the morning when I bought it than the green-blue as seen here and later in the day when we picked it up. Mood aqua?
I also have a thing for cubbies and shelves and nooks and crannies, and this seemed to fulfill all the requirements.
I want to keep it; I just don't know where it will go yet. But I'm thinking I'm going to be making the room for it.
It seems like we bought A LOT of aqua -- both blue-green and green-blue -- items this year. Here's another sweet little piece that was a bit of a lighter shade, with some red peeking out.
We found it on the last day, and my hunch is its location behind the pole of the vendor's tent prevented it from being seen and scooped up earlier.
Drool. Chippy latch.
This year I was the one buying the scale, although it wasn't as blue or as big as the one Mr. VJIMT got last year.
But aqua? Yes, ma'am. Absolutely.
Maybe I'll have to re-do my "studio" in blue and green aquas. I already have a shelf/cubby and a scale! And it's a giant mess, so maybe this will be my incentive.
I know this great toy horse truck has more green than blue in it, but I'm still feeling a connection.
It looks bluer in this shot.
Can you see where this is going? Mr. VJIMT bought this cool drawered (tool?) box…
…and proceeded to paint it the day we got home. I didn't really hesitate when he asked what color I thought it should be.
Tuesday at Bouckville ended with dinner (and maybe a drink or twelve) with Colleen and her husband Chris of Fresh Vintage. Although we live less than an hour from each other, we only see them when we're selling at Clover Market. It was so much fun to hang out and chat for a couple of hours.
