Vintage Bar Cart : Deux

DSC_0101

While perusing through Bordeaux’s antique shops, I spotted a modern, 2 tiered glass tray top, silver boxed bar cart for 160 euro. I began to squeal in delight because of its beauty, despite the crack on the top tray, I couldn’t take my eyes off it. Until, that is, one the dealers led me further into his shop and pointed out the one you see pictured. Imagine the squeals then!

I was able to work the shop owner down to 70 euro (from 120!)

A day later…a 2 hour train ride back to Paris, a painful hail for a taxi at the hectic Montparnasse Center and carrying it up four flights of narrow spiraling steps, until the cart reached its permanent home! It will now happily serve anyone who’s in need of a drink.

 Whoohoo!

For those of you who have followed my blog since my Sicily days, you may remember the brass bar cart I bought at the Catania open air market for super cheap! It was just 23 euro! ( Travelers beware: Be ready for the price differences between Italy and France! )

For those who are curious about my former bar cart, you can see the post here @ VINTAGE BAR CART.

    Thanks Sofie! I’m considering spray painting it a matte black one day. Not sure the brassiness will last long with my decor scheme…

    Now THAT is a perfect bar cart! I’m half dying I’m loving it so hard and you did an amazing job of putting it all ‘together’ 👏 I so wish I had one just like that in my house. What a great find 🙂
