Equestrian Antiquing

The My future in-laws visited this weekend, which meant two things: they helped us accomplish a truly amazing list of things around the house, and we went antiquing.
Whenever I am turned loose in an antique store, I gravitate toward the horse-themed items. I have a small but growing collection of old veterinary bottles – magic  elixirs and salves, that sort of thing. I didn’t find anything tempting yesterday, but I thought I’d take a few photos to share anyway!

 

This was an old candy tin. My most tempting find of the day, but not quite right.

This was actually a whole pile of turn of the century sleighing and other horse-themed prints.

Original art – definitely the nicest piece I saw that day, just not my style. The artist’s last name was Schyler.

  1. Super cool stuff! There are a lot of antique stores on the same street the tack shop's on, so I sometimes spend my lunch break poking around for equestrian items. It's nearly all western-themed around here, though!
