First Annual Antiques Fair

Today was the first annual Antiques Fair. There was a wonderful variety of antiques and collectibles.

Look-a Victorian parlor!
This lamp was darling and was gone rather quickly!
Handpainted roses on a screen fit for a queen.
How about some pink roses?
This antique dressing vanity was a show stopper.

An arts and crafts style china cabinet houses lovely antique china.
Hmmm, this table looks very familiar. Yup-that's our old dining room table:)
Beautiful needlework graces this old fireplace screen.
There was a pair of these needlepoint chairs.
Another needlepoint firescreen (I know-I'm hovering around the needlepoint again-I just need to step away from the needlepoint:).
How about this amazing pink and green floor lamp?
A stack of vintage leather suitcases.
A beautifully carved fern stand.
Detail of the carving.
Uh oh! Vintage hats with feathers! I'm in trouble now!
Royal blue velvet with pink and green feathers-lovely!
How about rust and black feathers with some sparkly beads!
It looks even better on:)
Of course, the blue and pink hat looks pretty good too:)
Look at those gorgeous blue and green feathers!
It was a wonderful day of chatting with shoppers and antique dealers. We did some shopping and made some new friends. Thanks for joining me! I always enjoy antiquing with friends:)

Everything there was so lovely! I love antique shopping. The dressing table is the most beautiful I've ever seen! And, yes, the needlepoint is gorgeous. It looks like you had a wonderful day! Blessings!

P.S. Did you check my comment on the previous post? I may have left two.

Oh how wonderful!
I love all the beautiful antiques - the dressing table and the screen with roses are just gorgeous.

Did you take a hat home with you?

I hope that you are having a happy weekend.

What a fabulous post!! I am in love with everything. First it was the lamps, the one with the roses, but then the pink and green one! Then I scrolled down to the hats. They really caught my attention, cuz I love old hats to
much be they for ladies or for dolls. Wow, we sure don't have any antique markets like that over here, such fabulous things, one more lovely then then the other. How did you ever leave it all behind you! :-)

Kim, thank you SO much for all your warm and kind comments on my recent posts. They meant the world to me. I am so blessed that someone up there lead me in the direction of blogger one day and allowed me to join such a wonderful supportive world of women!! Take care, and a hug coming your way, Debby

Wish I could have been there to meander through the lovely things. Sometimes I think I was born too late. I know I would have loved living during that time. Everything had so much grace to it. I loved seeing everything through your eyes today. Thank you.
