French Finds at Marburger Farms

Mom & I ended up going on Preview Day and again the next day.  It was amazing 
how many items (even some I wanted to go back and purchase) were already sold.
Even though it's more expensive to go the first day, I definitely think it was worth it.

 This was one of my favorite venues.  They had amazing pieces.

Antique French Urns ($650 each)
In the urns are paper flowers made out of vintage dress
patterns.  I did take a few home with me.

I love how they put king size pillows in antique grain sacks on this iron day bed

My only purchase regret was these.  I should've purchased one but mom & I
were laughing about our commitment issues. (These were gone the second day)

The next booth had amazing pieces. Loved it all.

French Settee - ready to be upholstered

This lady had antique French architectural pieces. 
They were all amazing and amazingly expensive; however,
the color of blue in these pieces is what captured my attention. 

This venue had beautiful grain sacks and this Postes France sack,
which I wanted badly...

Mom & I each purchased one of these French baskets.
They would put moss in the bottom & flowers in them & hang
the baskets along bridges in the spring and fall. 
Definitely my favorite purchase this time.
