As I type this blog post for you today, friends, it’s late February in Vermont, 14 degrees, and the sun is shining bright.  And with that, I am determined to add some spring antique collectibles to my built-in bookshelves in our main living area.  Therefore, yesterday, I headed out to the closest Antique mall, Stonehouse Antique Center in Chester, Vermont, to hunt for some antique transferware and ironstone collectibles.

I have been dreaming of lighter touches like soft blues, white Ironstone, platters, glassware, patterns, and more.  I found 10 antique collectibles yesterday that I want to share with you here today, all for under $100.  I am so excited to redecorate our built-ins with these beautiful new pieces and add the spring touches I’m yearning for.  That will be the next blog post, friends, so I hope you keep following along!

First up are these 4 beautiful blue and white Transferware teacups that I purchased for $9.

I love how soft and sweet they look, and they have a bit of a different shape to them, too.


Second, I found this Ironstone soup crock that I will display on the built-ins and most likely also use in our kitchen as well.  This piece was $40 plus a 25% discount, which was the most expensive antique collectible of the day.

An antique blue bottle for $3 adds to that light blue color theme that I was going for, too.

I also found a couple of white porcelain roosters for $10 apiece.  Perfect for our Vermont shelving.

This large blue and white transferware bowl was a bargain at $10!!

Friends, the reason I’m sharing the pricing with you on this post today is that I often get inquiries on how much one should spend while antiquing.  I do believe this is completely up to the person shopping.  However, you don’t need to spend over $40 to get a nice piece of antique Transferware or Ironstone.  Most antique shops are filled with these items, and they can vary in price depending on the vendor.

I also purchased this Ironstone platter for $10.  It does have a couple of chips on it, but that’s what I love about it.
