For Sickness and Vintage

Soooo, although we were both deathly ill... my mom and I did an Antique and Collectible show in Middletown last weekend. We had beautiful weather here in CT (so we heard :-0 ). The show was good- but what was fabulous was the school hosting the event had about 20 boys who flocked our truck to lug in all of our many bins of fabulousness!!! It was a huge help, considering we could barely lift ourselves at that point. But none the less- we pulled it together and this was the outcome...



We decided to do a masculine side and a feminine side with the dress forms in the middle.


Love the hat??? You know you want it!


This is the last of our antique door knobs... as you can see- the glass ones were a huge hit! They are so gorgeous and you can do so much with them!


We brought a lot of silver to this show. It's just so pretty.


Yes- those are shirt fronts. We received so many comments/ thoughts on them. We also had collars. One customer bought a few to frame. Very Fun!



My favorite part, of course, was the vintage purses and accessories. They are great for prom season, formal gatherings... or just everyday wear! Why wait to celebrate? Or more importantly- to look fabulous!!!


So that was the show! Wish you could have been there ;-)


Thanks for stopping by!


Hugs
