Treasure Hunting: Knobs

I hit up an Antique Show at the Edmonton Expo Centre this past weekend for some treasure hunting.  Think rows upon rows of stuff - dishes, toys, records, you name it.  We were there for literally hours and I'm pretty sure I still didn't see everything.  All that great stuff and I came out with just one small treasure, these beautiful glass knobs.

They have sort of an 'anthropologie-esque' look and a rustic charm (read: rust) that I quite like.  And at $3.50 each, I'm quite happy with my little treasure.

I'm thinking I'm going to replace the knobs on our bedside tables with these beauties.  I'll post a photo soon, I just need to clear of the millions of books and lotions living there first...

    I picked up some old knobs at the Christie Antique show here in Toronto last year but I haven't done anything with them yet. Can't wait to see what you do with yours!

  5. Wow. You can't beat that! You would have paid $15 a pop at Anthro. How do they sleep at night?!

  13. I wish we had something like that in Dallas! We had a "flea market" that was actually an expensive craft show, and an actual flea market that was full of western junk and puppy mill dogs. Now I'm inspired to give antiquing another shot :)

  16. I like them very much C! I can't believe I didn't know about a humungous Antique Show going on in our city. Frick and frack! Perusing old stuff is fun, especially with a chai latte in hand. :)
