Blog On The Go - My Purchases at The Antiques Fair
My absolute favourite purchase was this amazing French Games Table. The seller was French and kindly let me have it at the French price.
It's hard to keep the prices of Ghost Furniture at a reasonable level if I have to pay huge prices for the original pieces so I am always careful not to pay too much.
I found this lovely little collection in a box under a table of a lovely stand that was a joy to rummage in.
At the same stall I bought these battered but gorgeous large frames.
This very dirty but very lovely oval frame will become a blackboard.
These versatile candlesticks come apart to be used in 3 different ways. Very clever but then again they are French.
Victorian ebonised desk accessories that will be attached to blackboards to be a
lovely place to keep your chalks.
Not so bad then? Well compared to haul I brought back from my last trip to Paris it's not so good as far a quantity goes but the quality is there and that's what is important.
Now to turn them into something hauntingly beautiful for Ghost Furniture
