We have returned from our antique faire weekend adventures and adventures they were indeed. Riki and I had so much fun first starting with the Remnants of the Past antique faire in Nipomo, Ca. This faire is so classy in the care and attention each vendor puts into their booth displays...definite eye candy.
How clever is this....filling and coating antique gloves with plaster then putting them on a stand.
After meeting up with another friend for lunch, Riki and I were off to the Bay Area....about a 4 1/2 hour drive north. That evening we had dinner with Catherine Witherall, another artist friend of ours and ate, talked and laughed for hours.
Alameda was a blast, shopping was at a premium, and treasures were found. At lunch we took a break and met up with Catherine again and ran into Amy Hannah and Pam Garrison...how fun is that.
There were so many vendors (hundreds) that we couldn't see them all....I definitely need to wear rollerskates next time or get there at 6 in the morning with a flashlight. Here is a peak at some of the treasures I brought home...do you think I like bling just a little???
One of my favorite finds of the weekend was the alabaster art deco hand which I will use in my displays. Now I need to get in the studio and design so I can fill my pending orders.
Wishing you all a great week.
