Industrial Cart~French Enamelware Collection

Good Morning All~Hope you had a wonderful weekend junking! Something we all look forward to every weekend! You just never know what you will find! About two weeks ago I went to The Scott Antique Show in Atlanta with my friend Carol. We had a wonderful time looking for treasures! I bought quite a few things, and This is my absolute favorite! A 1920's iron shopping cart! Love it!! Baskets and all. I have a thing for Baskets, and just about anything made of old metal!! The older, rustier, crustier the better!! Above it is an antique marriage license found for cheap! I have noticed after blogging for a couple of years, I have never shown much of my kitchen collectibles! One of my favorite things is my french enamelware collection. I don't believe I will ever get tired of it. Such a clean vintage look! I love old canisters, lunch boxes, tall body pitchers, bread boxes....

Utensil racks, watering cans, salt boxes, etc..I have been collecting for at least 14 years! I have sold quite a bit over the years too! Always keeping what I love the most! I don't like to overdue my displays.....

Keeping it simple to me, makes more of a statement! Be sure to check my Ebay listings from time to time...I sell under the name Cottage-White.... I have a few things listed. you may want to take a peek!

So this is my kitchen cupboard filled with some of my favorites mixed in with hubby's collection of coke stuff....Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Hello Cheryl,

what a great enamelware collection. I have a passion for enamelware too and collect it especially with rose decor. I live near france and have found some cuties there. The first coffee pitcher with the pink rose in your picture - I have exactly the same!

Have a nice weekend,
Tanja from germany
