Hi there! While in the area on business, I drove through the small town of West Stockbridge (MA), about 45 minutes outside of Albany. The beautiful weather offered the opportunity to take a few photos and stop at a couple of garage sales, too. So today I’ve got some vintage finds to share along with some shots of historic buildings that caught my eye.
The first sale–a series of folding tables set up in front of a gorgeous red barn–seemed promising.
However, the best part of the stop ended up being the chance to take some photos of the barn. The one item I purchased, an oblong wooden tray, looks great in the center of my kitchen table. You can see how I decorated with it here.
At another sale, I picked up this shabby spice cannister. I love the mustardy color and the vintage look (cost: $1, sold: $6).
I thought this was really interesting–it’s like a knife box, but for holding a letter opener and a pair of scissors. You hang it on the wall and slide the opener and scissors in the slots (cost: $1, sold: $11.99 on Etsy 2014).
I think this simple, ceramic table frame will come in handy some day, and for another $1, I couldn’t pass it up. It’s very Lenox-like.
This isn’t the best shot, but I think you can make out the shelves in front of the pallet, right? It’s black and was on sale for $1!! The very bottom shelf needs some glue and a little support, but other than that, it’s perfect.
Once I arrived in Stockbridge I couldn’t resist photographing some of the lovely old buildings.
This old stone house is stunning, isn’t it?
I love the old white churches scattered throughout New England, and this one is no exception. A day like this, filled with sunny skies, historic towns, and great garage sales makes me feel very blessed.
