~OUR New Booth at The Agoura Antique Mart~

Pinch Me! Please!  I never in a million years thought I would be blogging to you today that we now have a booth at the Agoura Antique Mart.  I'm so HONORED to be a part of, in my opinion, the best antique mall in all of California.   I've known Maria Bartolet since the day she became the owner more than 16 years ago.  I've been an antique collector and buyer for more than 35 years, shopping at The Agoura Antique Mart and buying for at least 16 years.  Located in the Whizin's  Center in Agoura Hills, Ca. please stop by when you are in the neighborhood. 

Some vignettes of our booth
One of my favorite pieces, antique file cabinet from Santa Monica City Hall  Circa 1912 dated!  Great piece for an industrial office or loft space.  I love the vintage luggage on top.  Here is another picture of the cabinet.
and this one too!
This rustic yellow hutch was imported from Italy.  Lots of storage, plate rack and drawers.  Beautiful barbola triple mirror, lots of rose paintings, water color and oils, English biscuit jars and rose tie backs.  Ohh and can't forget the Italian Toleware.
We found this antique sled at an Estate Sale and thought it was perfect for Christmas Holidays!  These sleds look so cute inside or out.  I love them propped up by the entrance of your home!  Way too cute!

I love vintage luggage and old trunks, so you will see lots of these items in my booth!   I just found these lemon crate ends with great graphics.  Large black and gold scale is to die for!
another pic of that great scale!
 I love to display items in old dental cabinets...when I found this one...I almost fell over!  It is in perfect vintage condition.  This one is from my own personal collection.  I put large statues in these and do a vignette in itself.  I love to put the etched mirrors as a backdrop.  I had set the booth up with a beautiful angel statue, but it sold before I could take a picture, so for now I have an antique Santos in there with some etched mirrors. 
I recently went on a buying trip to Oregon, and found this adorable child's desk.  This is an amazing piece, all hand pin striped all original paint.  The blackboard folds down to become a flat surface (how cute is that?)  This cute desk dates back to 1945, any child would be so lucky to have this piece of history!  It even has a drawer and cute metal shelves on the side. 
While we are on the subject of children, those of you that know me.......know that I love anything French! Here is another of my favorite finds, a beautiful French Iron crib/bench.  This is an adorable baby crib, but the best part is...you can take the side rail off and use it as a bench.  There is a beautiful metal barbola piece on the headboard and footboard too.  The original ticking mattress is included!  All new cover and bolster pillow also included. 
Before I get to winded and make this post way tooo long....I saved the best for last!  This is an Italian Buffet cabinet.  This buffet is amazing and beautiful!  The color is that gorgeous Swedish gray/blue....and the entire front of this buffet is hand carved!  You have to see it in person...it truly is amazing!  Above it is a matching architectural mirror.
and one more!
ok, just one more thing!  I love these vintage sheet music wreaths....perfect for the up coming holidays!
and here we display two back to back!
Hope you enjoyed the post today.  If you see anything you like please don't hesitate to call the store and ask if it is still available (818) 706-8366.  If you have time stop by The Agoura Antique Mart Blog here and tell Maria I sent you!   Be sure to become a follower, as I try to post twice a week!  Thanks, xokathee
