I'm so glad we got a chance to visit the Elephant's Trunk! My son David lives not far from the area in CT, and has been telling me about it for years. It was a perfect warm clear day. We wandered in mid-day and still had plenty to pick from. The prices, in general, were much better than my usual markets back home in Albuquerque. And of course I saw items rare to find in my region too. I snapped a few pics of my favorites. . . .
A pair of nice big French mirrors.
The buy of the day? David scored a pair of repro Walter von Nessen, Pattyn lamps. Something that's been on his bucket list for a long time. Originals are priced in the thousands. We bargained for about twenty-five percent off the asking price, and won! These are from LA and were used as props in a movie. We have to find out which one! Not what I would choose, perhaps, but they look sensational with his Modern Era decor!
I found an antique matelasse cover ($20), blue transferware plates from France (seven for five dollars! really! --that can happen late in the day), and a few cabinet cards.
Such a fun weekend!
Hope yours was too!
