The Old is New

This past weekend I went with my friend, M, to an antique show. It's held twice a year at Christie's Conservation Area (for the locals, it's off HWY 5) and the next one is Sept. 12, 2009. Write it on your calendars now!!! There is so much cool stuff there, anything and everything you could imagine. As our house is getting a little full, I stayed away from decor but when we get our next house (bigger...), it'll be open season. I love antique furniture and for what you would spend at Leon's or IKEA, you can get something unique and not made of particle board. I bought a few pieces of jewelry, a fur muff, a silk scarf... you know, all those lovely things that I absolutely don't need but I covet anyways. One booth had HUGE statement necklaces for about $350, they were ridiculously awesome and yup... way out of my price range. One day...
Oh ya, and I nearly forgot the best part. It's all licensed, so you can shop and sip a bevi. Nice, right?

Some photos...

Stopping for a hotdog and fries at 10:30 am. M's pregnant but what's my excuse? It was the breakfast/lunch of champions (champion shoppers). M, I love your D&G anchor sunglasses... you know that...

Seriously sweet vintage one piece. I wanted it but I wasn't about to go in some sketch antique dealer's truck to try it on. Oh well, I'll comfort myself by thinking it probably would never have fit nice anyways. Besides, the mannequin looks great, I've got nothing on her...
