Featured Vendor - Busy Bee Antiques

Busy Bee Antiques is one of the most amazing antique booths I have ever seen. Long before we had them here at ARTifacts, I was a big customer at their other locations (currently here and one in This Old Place Antiques on College St.)

Their decorating style and unique uses of classic pieces are just amazing! And their prices are fabulous! Just look as some of these incredible finds:
Above there is transferware (which you are already aware is a favorite of mine!). This stack of dishes are black and white. Some is transferware - some are just fun black and white pieces. That pile of prints in the green floral box are actually old bible story cards they used in Sunday School classes - there is about 50 prints there and they are all just wonderful!
This 3 drawer dresser is beautiful as are the candlewick glasses. And of course they always have unique patriotic pieces in their booth.

There are several unique pieces in this corner of the booth. I love these wonderful white plant stands. They would look amazing on a patio with different season decor on them. It is almost pumpkin time! Love the black end table with the small nook for storage, the vintage mail box, the old mirror, that incredible lamp and finally the great collection of cards in simple frames would make a great display on a bare wall.
More fun stuff here - this new dresser - it is amazing! She just brought this in today - and she put an AMAZING price on it! The color isn't coming across well in this photo - but it is a really appealing blue with wonderful detailing in the wood. (HINT: It wouldn't qualify for our layaway program - it is that affordable!!)
I also wanted to mention an event that Busy Bees is coordinating this fall. They are hosting a consignment sale for household items and ladies clothing. If you are interested in learning more check out their website at - I know I will be there!
Well, I hope you see some new stuff that makes you want to come running in! I have seen many vendors today who have made MAJOR changes in their displays so you may want to come down and see what is happening. You know this stuff moves fast!
