Sunday at Sand Point Antique Show

Our Sunday as vendors at the Sand Point Antique Show was one heck of a fun day! Lisa and I enjoyed visiting with so many of our customer friends and making lots of new ones. Our friendships with fellow dealers continues to grow, and when they complimented us on how good our booth looked – well we felt like we were sitting at the grown-ups table! And before I go any further, we’d like to thank the owner of the show, Dennis Eros, for our very nice location and all of his help making this show so successful.

When you do a show like this, it doesn’t matter how early you wake up, there is never enough time before the doors open. So I sadly didn’t take any pictures of other booths. Please visit My Sweet Savannah for some terrific pictures of the Queen of Tarte’s to-die-for space. Cindy’s style amazes me. Deb and Bob’s Retreat space was absolutely dreamy! As always, we love seeing Linda of Luluz (and we met her new buddy, Buddy) and JohnBob. The Sand Point Antique and Design Market blog has photo snippets of many of the other wonderful booths.

At one point, I called this child’s wheelbarrow a wheelchair. After two days of working on a cold concrete floor, that is probably what I secretly wanted.

Rusty bedsprings holding botanical prints from the 1930s. These large rusty metal spheres were hugely popular.

My favorite part of this shot is the mirror reflecting other parts of our space.

The pipe and faucet handles were wrapped with wire to hold photos or cards. Jill of Horseshoe in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle bought lots of them. It’s always great to meet other junk-loving souls who get what we are doing.

This china hutch still needs a home. But it enjoyed its adventure to the big city and back.

Message boards in and out of a rescued cage.

And still our favorite vignette of the show – our tablescape mixing it up with book covers as placemats, rusty pieces from a farm and timeless transferware. This charming table and two chairs are also still waiting to be adopted.

Please mark your calendars for December 6 for the next Sand Point show. We’re reserving our space for it today!
