Christie Antique Show
The show opened at 8am, and we were at the gates at 8:30 along with a few hundred others. Rain or shine the show opens twice a year, this years dates May 25th and September 7th. The morning started off really chilly, but by noon the sun made an appearance and it warmed up some. Thank goodness.
Good 'ol Italian heritage, my mom bartered the seller down from $12.50 to $10.00, saying it was for her grandson - made me laugh.
Here's a round up at a few of the other things that caught my eye…
Love these pretty pastel vintage mugs. Should have.
The size of these lamps caught my instantly.
Letters. There were letters everywhere. I’m tired of letters.
I missed out on the hooks I wanted for Evan’s big boy room. I thought to wait, and when I returned they were gone. Lesson learned.
The pile had glass, brass and porcelain door knobs, they were all lovely. Love the glass and brass door knobs especially, thought I need black door first, so I left them behind.
Not often do you see an antique bed suitable for a boy… I think this one is fabulous.
Mini Bertoia chair. Wanted it, left it.
Aren’t these teacups pretty? I told my mom about using them to display jewellery, she looked at me as if I was crazy.
This Murano glass green lamp, so stunning!
This table caught my eye instantly. It was the largest display of Jade dishes at the show. So pretty!
Next to the Jade dishes were these stunning pink pieces. Love the pink polka-dot glasses. Didn’t buy any.
And, finally… these gold plated cutlery set… heaven. It’s as though they were hidden, at the far back of a table and under some display shelves. I spotted them in an instant. I asked for a price, prepare yourself… $750. for the set. Needless to say, I left them behind.
All and all, a better show then the first show I went to although, I still found the items to be pricy. Nevertheless, I’m happy with my golden elephant purchase.
What did you do this past weekend?
