This show is really different from the indoor flea market yesterday...it's a true antique show, made up almost entirely of dealers, many with the booth tags still on their items. There are lots of real antiques (100 years old +), primitives and country pieces and a fair amount of depression glass. I moved pretty quickly through those booths and focused on the kitschy, mid-century and vintage holidays, so the whole show didn't take long.
Here are some views from today's show
|There were wide aisles today...in years past, you could barely move|
|It's a sad thing when you have every one of the things in a coronation display -- nothing new to add to the collection!|
|This table and chair set was really cool in person|
|LOVED this little side table. Too bad I have no place to use it, so I couldn't justify the $25 to buy it|
|Lots of vintage kitchen!|
|This seller's dollhouse furniture was really impressive -- she had another two shelf units packed like this|
|Aprons and some fun things made from cutter tablecloths|
|Strombecker 8" doll sized mid-century table & chairs|
|Snowman salt & pepper set in original box|
|Serious kitsch! Birthday angels, choir boys and a sweet polka dot elephant planter|
That's it for the weekend spending...tomorrow is 'dealer day' at the mall, when they open early for the dealers to work on their booths. I think the daffodils have gotten me in the mood and it's time to start a spring display!
Have a happy weekend!
