I Finally Got One!

Pin It!
Happy Friday !!

Some of you may know that I've been looking for a vintage kitchen scale for-EVA!  I've scoured our local antique stores all summer ... looked online, but couldn't find one I liked anywhere.  Then, I realized why ... because my friend, Kim, at Savvy Southern Style has ALL of them!  LOL.

SEE ... look at those beauties on her soffit.  She probably put them up that high so that I couldn't sneak over and easily "snatch" one!


 Annnd, another (this one is my fave):


 And, wait, ... there's one more!


I love her collection, for sure and, apparently, my subtle hints didn't work because one didn't show up in my mailbox with a Georgia postmark on it!  Darn.

So, I was thrilled to have *finally* found one on Ebay ... it's fairly large.


And, I love its rustic look:


Can't wait to add something fun on top and to find the perfect spot for it ...

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

hehehehe...and just imagine if we lived in Atlanta, we would never be able to score anything LOL! Kim has a great collection. I have one cool red one my Step Dad found for me, and I love it. Have a great weekend Becca.

Oooooooooh I didn't even know I wanted one until I saw how cute they can look!!!! Must have!

Gina said...

That's a perfect scale! I love how rustic it is too. Enjoy!

Love it Becca! I have had a hard time finding one, too. Then bam, my junkin partner, Tonia, picked two up and gave me one. I went to the Nashville flea market last week end and fell in love with one very similiar to yours and walked away because I thought it was too much. Rebecca from Walnut & Vine was there and started talking to the lady, and actually it was half price, so I grabbed it up!!! Two in one week, that's what I'm talking about :)

It looks great Becca, Kim must of been sleeping and missed that one! Wait until she sees it! Now shopping for accessories for it, the fun never ends! Can't wait to see what you put on top. You could even display it on those beautiful magical shelves!

You do look like you got a good one Becca. Kim has a nice collection and the space to display them! I bought a few for my etsy shop this summer after finding some bargains in New Hampshire antique runs. They sold right away~

Linda said...

Scales are so much fun. They are not hard to find here at our flea markets/antique shops, but those vendors seem to know they are in demand and come with a hefty price tag. I did find an old Weight Watchers scale and scored for $2. I use if for weighing my packages before selling items on my etsy shop.

Kathryn said...

That is a keeper! I love the old patina on it!

Jenny @ Simcoe Street said...

I was so inspired by Kim's that I finally found one too. Yours is a great piece, and I think we have the same brand.

NanaDiana said...

Oh- I am so glad you found one! I love it! I had a baby scale that was just wonderful and let my husband talk me into giving it to the thrift store. I should have smothered him then~ xo Diana

kristin said...

oohhh lucky girl! I have been searching for an old scale as well, I just love the way they look in any kitchen!

Linda said...

That's an awesome scale! They do add charm and character to a kitchen...plus if they work they are useful...and can come in handy!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Oh, I love it. See, I knew I didn't have them all. Thanks for sharing mine. I was just getting around to your blog when I saw your comment.
