Great Finds at the Aberfoyle Antique Market

I first read about the Aberfoyle Antique Market on StyleNorth, which is my cousin's blog and a great source of inspiration.  Recently, my friend and fellow blogger Jaime, asked if I'd like to join her on a hunt to stock her Etsy shop.   After reading her recent blog post about the market, I couldn't resist.

For those of you who live in the GTA, I recommend checking it out yourself.  It's open Sundays from 8:00am- 4:00pm until the end of October and it's only an hour outside of the city.  It's HUGE and really packed full of treasure (and lots of junk, of course) but I managed to take some pictures to give you a sense of what I mean.

Remember our industrial pendant light?  Well, they were all over the place and ranged in price quite a bit.  This green model was price at $60 but there's usually room to negotiate (especially later in the day) and I believe I saw a couple priced lower.

There was tons of interesting vintage and antique furniture and these canisters made me think of my recent thrift shop purchase.

If you're looking for colourful pottery, you'll find it everywhere.  These planters were cute and I also found several vintage tea tins which would make really sweet planters for an herb garden.

While I love my own harvest table best, there were some beautiful tables with church pew benches for sale.  I believe this table was very reasonably priced at about $700.

I love so many things in this picture!  Vintage rocking horse? Check!  Retro bar stools?  Check!  And of course, that vintage library card cabinet is all kinds of fabulous.  Unfortunately the price was over $2000, which means I'll have to settle for this picture!

I kept looking at these pretty lead glass windows.  I believe this one was $85. 

Remember my DIY Nightstand?  Here's the real deal.  For only $95, I was tempted.

There were also retro games and even giant gumball machines for the young at heart.

Some of my favourite items were the mid-century chairs.  These were just $20 each and I would have found a brightly printed fabric to cover the seats.

I also really liked this chrome and smoked glass table, which was priced at $95.  It would have looked great in our old condo or any other mod space.

While, they're not quite my taste, these industrial carts are being sold as coffee tables at many chic stores and they look amazing in the right space.  I've seen these on the Guff website, priced "reasonably" at $475, but the models below were all under $300 and one was priced as low as $215!

These print press letters and characters were abundant and inexpensive and would make a great craft or even grouping on a shelf.

I just loved this doorknob and it looked like something out of a fairy tale.  However, it was priced over $200 so we did not have a happy ending together.  Still, it's a great example of all the wonderful architectural salvage items available.

I actually considered calling Corey about this console table.  It was beautifully made with a rough wood edge and would make a fabulous counter in our kitchen with storage for pots below.  I really love this table.  It was over $400 but I still have my eye on it...  Corey, what do you think???

I didn't want to leave empty handed but it was looking like that may happen.  Jaime had found some fun items but nothing had really grabbed my attention.  I'd been looking at some blown glass wine jugs which seemed quite beautiful, but they were priced at around $60 which didn't seem like a bad deal but it also wasn't exactly a "call to action".

Anyway, on the way out, we saw a large one which was beautifully asymmetrical and it was priced at $35.  The shop owner agreed to take $30 so we made a deal.

Of course, I did a little research after arriving home and found these vintage bottles from Pottery Barn.  Apparently, they're used to store wine or sunflower oil.  Pottery Barn charges $259.75 for the XL size (which is still smaller than mine) so I feel pretty good about my $30 jug.

The wine jug also matches our water glasses (below) which were made from wine bottles and purchased from an Etsy shop which is unfortunately no longer online.

Here it is in our dining room.  I'm not sure if it will stay here, but I'm liking this spot for now.  What do you think?
