French Country Sale Bloomfield,Ont.

Today there was a sale in Bloomfield. It is about 3 hours east of us on the Bay of Quinte.
So off we went in our daily driver(rain in the forcast) at 8:am .
This French Country Sale actually started yesterday.
There was so much to see, I can't imagine what we missed.
There were many chairs (that I could buy) but didn't.
I picked up the cutest birdhouse( I collect them) and put it down for just a second and turned to look at this vase when it was gone. The vase is from England (Crown Devon.) Not a mark on it $8.00
, and this blue and white plate from Japan, 50's for $2.00. They came home with me. As well a quilted sham for my queensize pillow.  Sorry no photo it's already in the wash.
So off we go to another town Carrying Place to the next Antiques mall.There was lots of eye candy and I purchased this cute pudding bowl.
TG Green Co. Ltd. England for $5.00.
We carried on home at this point and ran into some hard rain.
Good thing we did not take our truck(49 ford p/u)
until next time,

  1. I think TG Green makes Cornishware.... I think the pudding bowl is so cute! I love the shape, and you can't go wrong with white. I also lie the vase. It is lovely!

  2. Thanks much for sharing your finds and photos! Looks a couple of great places to go and hunt for great things, love the mirror up above sitting on the stool. FUN!!

  3. That looks like a fun sale...pretty long drive from my house, sadly! Don't you sometimes just wish you could fly from wonderful sale to wonderful sale....just for one year! Wow! That would take some serious money, even if you didn't buy anything! It's fun to dream!

  4. Mi piacerebbe che ci fossero pure qui,questi tipi di mercatini.Qui in Italia facciamo fatica a trovare oggetti così belli!Per fortuna che qualche mercatino c'è.Salutoni,Rosetta

  5. Looks like you found some great places. I always wonder what I missed by not getting there first thing in the morning. Your vase is gorgeous. I have a thing for white vases.

  6. We've all had the one that got away when we blinked. 3 hours is a long drive for a sale. Glad you made a great day of it.
