post office box
The thing about Round Top, or any large scale antiques market, is that it’s difficult to find precisely what you want if you have a particular list.
Because of the vast volume of merchants and products we try to generally survey the items in our range of vision to see if we gravitate toward anything. That’s how happy accidents happen.
It was midday and we were hungry and running low on energy when we walked by a merchant with a cute little dog. He said something funny and we paused for a minute. My gaze landed on a set of post box cubicles. And I did physically gravitate toward it. 30 minutes later it was in the trunk of the car.
Now, after a bath and a coat of paste wax, it’s in the study next to the little twin bed.
We added a few seashells
and a couple of antique fishing lures that we found the same day from another merchant (second happy accident)!
This cubby is an item I would never have attempted to seek but am so glad we crossed its path.
Since we’re always looking for any excuse to integrate our vast collection of seashells into all of our living spaces, this seemed like a perfect choice, and I feel so fortunate to have found it. The piece is well worn and will be well loved in our home.
As always, thank you so much for sharing your time here 🙂
