Despite a nasty hangover, I forced myself to wash the drunk off and fancy myself up for a day of shopping. I hit Maison Luxe, Watson Kennedy, and Pacific Galleries Antique Mall.
Pac Gallery has probaby 100 vendors offering their antiques and vintage. There are 3 separate stalls I try to hit first because the merchandise is always so great. And lucky me, today I met the owner of these little beauties, Susan Wheeler of Pink Lemonade (that's her trade name). Apparently she not only keeps herself busy finding these treasures at all kinds of antique fairs and flea markets, she also does windows for boutiques & offers her awesome selection at various gift shows. If you get a chance, you should check out her goods at Pacific Galleries in Seattle's SoDo neighborhood.
Here is what I am currently lusting from Susan Wheeler's collection - - these great urns:
Look at that insane seahorse table:
And while not from Susan, I did spot this charmer. I want to buy an old dresser to use as a bar in my dining room, figuring I can store serving dishes, napkins, etc in the drawers, too. I think this might be the one:
I also scored a door knocker very similar to this one:
I remember Domino hunting for this and discovering one at E. R. Butler. Mine, however, did not cost $1100 like theirs. Sweet victory.
I also snapped up two of these silver cups (featured in this post on the Maison Luxe blog) while at Maison Luxe today. They will soon be sporting flowers, I am sure. Maybe on my new dresser-turned-bar...
