Shopping For Vintage And New Finds

We were back up in  Blowing Rock, North Carolina recently and took the opportunity to stop in a store on the way home. I really wanted to go here in May while we were on vacation, but we just ran out of time. 
On our last trip to Windwood Antiques in  Blowing Rock, we found several Vintage and New Finds at their smaller downtown store. I was so excited to finally get the chance to visit the larger warehouse store in Blowing Rock Square. It is filled with so many wonderful antique and new furniture pieces and accessories. 

One of the first items to catch our eye was this gorgeous trestle table whose top was made with reclaimed wood. 

So gorgeous!
 Loved the vintage looking chandelier above it too.
These slipcovered chairs would go perfectly with the trestle table. 

Mr. Fanatic parked himself at this awesome oversized bar height table and was trying to figure out where we could put this in our home.  
It is huge!

This wire and glass open cabinet would look fantastic in a bathroom.

Fell in love with this steel topped island. Hmmmm

It had such an interesting top. 

 The shop had some interesting lighting fixtures. 
This one was made out of a squirrel cage roof  vent. 
Very clever.

 We bought one of these rusted metal arrows for our daughter the last time we were in Blowing Rock at the downtown store.

 There were also mini metal arrows...

 And metal ampersands.

 Loved this open bookcase cabinet with drawers at the bottom. 
It was filled with vintage books in German.
I bought a few last time.

Really wanted this vintage watering can...but it was $89 and a little too pricey for me. 

I was able to find a several good buys and will show you how I used them another time. I'll give you a hint as to what a few of the items are...
here it is: I might be able to show them off at a party over at Marty's, from A Stroll Thru Life .  : )

For those of you who live in the Charlotte, North Carolina, you'll be happy to know that they have a store in the Meyers Park area. Maybe it's a good thing it's about 40 minutes from me. I will have to stop by there some time soon though. 
Hope your week is off to a good start!


ps. I was not compensated in any way by Windwood Antiques. I thought you'd enjoy hearing about a fun place to shop.
