Christie antique show fall 2011

The second of two shows per year was held at the Christie Conservation area this past weekend, and it did not disappoint again. The weather was beautiful and the inspiration was on the same path.
Here are some of the photos of the day. Although, we do not have as many styled booths as some of the fabulous shows you see here in blogland, there are more and more at every event.

these chairs are quite beautiful, and the styling above the mantel was reminiscent of days past.

antique baby shoes in an old dough bowl. i love the wire shade on the antique floor lamp.

a miniature drafting table. would have made a cute end table.

this booth had about 30 of these an amazing surveyor tripod lamps. at 950.00 a piece, they were slightly out of the realm of reason for me.

this stool is a cream separator base with reclaimed wood top, DIY anyone?


i actually heard one lady threaten her friend if she bought this table, she wouldn't visit her anymore. but wouldn't it be kind of cool painted a flat black?

taxidermy is wiggling it's way back in

hmmm, where to put this?

on my must have/find list. anyone out there have a black floor safe they don't want? it doesn't need to open. i will pick it up, with men for lifting. i'm serious. no laughing.

The Finds:

another heavy patina'd book press for our ongoing basement remodel.

oh the gold birdcage. it went like this:
me: oh a gold birdcage
trevor: it's alright
me: yeah we don't need it
walk 5 steps away
enter lady examining birdcage for purchase
me(in my head): i want that, cool candleholder, yup should be mine, back off lady, i'll fight you for it. didn't you see me touch it first
me to seller: i'll take it
trevor: i guess we need it now
me: yup

antique plaster capitol. patina & style.

pure white antique blanket, cast tobacco cutter from quebec and a wood foundry mold

Oh how we enjoy antique fairs.

Have a great day
