An incredible vintage smoking table, smoke stand, or standing humidor — still with the original copper liner! But it’s the outside the fabulous outside details which really make this a standout vintage piece. Lots of parquet, turned legs and spindle side handles, little storage spaces… A very handsome smoking parlor piece.

The ashtray which sits on top of the stand bears the Masonic square and compasses, with the center “G”. While the Masons ashtray was found with the table, it’s not original to the piece or was in a Freemasons lodge or Masonic member’s home. Still, a very beautiful and intriguing piece!

The opening weekend of the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market may have been rainy and not-so-nice, but we sold over half our inventory anyway! Since then, we’ve been focusing on restoring, repairing, painting, etc. of other furniture pieces in (and outside of) our shop.

But here’s a sneak peek at some of what we’ll be bringing to the next one on June 28th… That’s this weekend!

This vintage chest or cabinet served in the workshop — where it was likely made too. Note the drop-down storage and the black metal legs.

Also, a vintage cabinet & kitchen table we salvaged and painted a a creamy butter yellow. Each is properly distressed for a country prim home. (Mighty cute for the dining room or the porch!)

And this mossy green dresser got a few pale yellow stripes and a fresh coat of paint on top.

Last (for right now!) this cute little table we gave a shabby finish and a shiny lacquor seal so it stays chippy — but keeps too much paint from coming off. It also makes the red tone of the wood really pop!

Sometimes, decorating a booth space at an antique mall is much fun as decorating your house. The only sad thing is seeing how cool the set-up looks and wishing you could take it all back home with you and re-do the house. Unfortunately, hubby won’t let me do that. But if you love chippy-paint antique tables, antique wood, and a primitive look, then you’ll understand how I feel about this:

I love the look of the antlers by the insides of an antique piano. Even more amazing, the old newspaper adhered to the top of the old one-drawer wooden farm house table has the word “pianos” front and center!

We brought a lot of cool stuff in with us today, working at Exit 55 Antiques (Fergus Falls, MN). We’ll be posting more photos at our Facebook page, so “like” and follow us there to see them all.

When our kids were both littler and younger, they used these vintage mid-century modern tables a lot. Especially on movie nights, when they would sit on the floor. Now that they have grown, we’ve put this beautiful pair of stackable tables up for sale at Etsy. Mid-century modern just isn’t as popular here as it is elsewhere…
