Last week my friend Deberah and I were out visiting several local nurseries when we saw a banner that said "Antiques," and like me Deberah was perfectly happy to stop by. Turns out it was a newly-opened antique store on Highway 85 in Fayetteville, Next Generation Antiques and More. They had lots of good stuff at reasonable prices, and I had a small pile of goodies when I left.
I'd been looking for an old silver teapot to use as a garden planter, and this one for $3.50 seemed perfect!
This old tin had the prettiest roses on it, and I think it will be great for holding small teaspoons.
This footed silverplate piece was my favorite find from the trip.
I liked the swan etched in the center. The bottom is stamped "Raimond Silverplate," and I plan to polish it up and use it to display my next batch of macarons.
A sucker for soaps, I loved these aromatic little 2-inch-square blocks, which were 6 for $5.
And finally, I found my niece Amelia this little graniteware cup for her growing collection of "Little House on the Prairie" dinnerware (or what she thinks was their dinnerware in the 1800s). I'm definitely trying to make sure my nieces like antiques and tea, because hopefully they'll be the ones driving me to tea rooms and antique malls one day!
