Sneak Peek: The Goods

Happy Monday friends! With all the planning and buying and dreaming of the new shop, I have been just itching to display a few pieces. They're all things I'd love to have in my own house, so there was no use for them to sit in boxes in the garage for the next month and a half. I brought two or three boxes upstairs (we live on the second floor of an old case I haven't mentioned that before) and decided to play a bit. I may as well get to enjoy all my fun finds before they go on to new homes later this spring!

Everything you see will be available at The Cottage Collective, set to open at the beginning of April. Of course these are just the more "kitchen-y" items, since this is my kitchen and all. But you'll find all sorts of things at the shop!

Of course ironstone and white ware are always staples!

A lovely collection of gravy boats.

I am absolutely in love with this rusty black old lunch box. The patina is amazing, as is the white chippy paint on the inside.

Ironstone creamer, tarnished silver, antique cake plate...yes please!

Ironstone pitchers...a must.

I love this old white bread box. Rust in all the right places, and the top reads "savory."

I bought this chippy moulding as a display piece. I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet, but it was too fabulous to pass up.

Hope you enjoyed my little show and tell! And if you're local, I hope you liked what you see enough to stop in! I'll keep you posted on giveaways and opening news, so keep checking back! You can learn more about The Cottage Collective and all the vendors here, and like us on Facebook here.
