beauty + function

I strongly believe in this philosophy at the store, and in my own home. 
We love finding pieces and other treasures that combine functionality with beauty! 

Like piles of plates, stacks of silver, rows of pitchers...

...and a wonderful old metal cart to collect it all.

We love the beauty + function provided by this hard-working metal cart. It shows off many of our collections at the shop in such a lovely way!

I recently used a similar cart in my own kitchen and I love the results! 

Come into the store and see these and all of our other wonderful pieces and finds that work hard while looking beautiful. We are rearranging & refreshing daily to get ready for the new season!

Here are a few of the treasures we brought back to Denver with us from the 2011 Bonanza...

baseballs, wire baskets, tarnished silver, springs,
paintbrushes, trophies:
fun, funky, and easy to transport!

Of course, we found some things that weren't so easy to transport...

One for the store, one for me...we discovered two of these wonderful
factory carts.  We sold one of the carts at the store
and the other one came home with me! 

Wonderful finds, don't you agree?

I can't wait to see what the amazing vendors of Junk Bonanza have in store for us this year! To meet the vendors you can visit the blog:

A few of my Favorite Things!

I'm taking time today to share of few of my favorite at Old Glory Antiques!

I love this zinc-top table...newly constructed from reclaimed wood. The top is made from eco-friendly, food-safe zinc.  This table is beautiful!

This table pairs beautifully with these burlap-covered vintage chairs:

Another favorite of mine is this bench beautifully upholstered in a burlap rug.

And always on my list of favorite things:  Architectural elements!

Now back to work! Look for a great giveaway coming soon!
