I didn't have as much "shop money" with me as I would have liked, but I was able to find a few things to bring back to The Cottage.
My favorite find were these urns. Vintage cast iron urns are one of those things I always see in photos and magazines, and would think they would be easy to find...but apparently not. When I have found them, they have been exorbitantly priced. I was thrilled to come across the two cream ones. The larger urn is old, while I believe the smaller one is a reproduction, but you really can't tell. (The small gray one is from my own collection).
Next up, another item I've been searching for for a while...a vintage sugar tin. These are never easy to find, and expensive online. I bought this one from the sweetest old man who was closing is booth and had 50% off his many interesting wares. He mentioned what a neat find it was, and I had to agree.
I also found this delicate ironstone sugar and tea pot set. Simple and lovely.
This vintage step ladder has the best chippy green paint.
A striped linen tea towel
And last but not least, a vintage trophy. This is another item I've always loved but have not really come across.
I had so much fun exploring at First Friday and cannot wait to go back! Tomorrow I'll share a few pictures I snapped while shopping...there was some seriously incredible stuff and amazing displays! If you can't live without any of these finds, they will be available at The Cottage this week.
