Best Antiques on a Budget (2008)

Rust and Roses

We had no idea what we were going to do with the 1830s Federal-style hope chest we found at this, our fave place to buy shabby-chic décor for our home and garden, and we didn't care, because the price (and the piece itself!) were so breathtaking. Ditto a 19th-century French silver coffee service, a 1940s rubber frog squeak toy, and a chrome centerpiece punch bowl. We couldn't pass them up, because they, like everything else we ogle at this cleverly organized store in Seventh Avenue's Melrose shopping district, were so perfect and so perfectly priced. Rust and Roses specializes in vintage garden and architectural salvage, so they offer nearly as many gorgeous artifacts for sale on their vast outdoor terrace as they do indoors. We bought a perfectly patinaed patio set last time we were there but resisted the many pretty pieces of vintage chalkware we spotted, because, well, we were afraid that if we didn't stop shopping, we'd buy the whole store!
