Last Sunday Lisa and I were vendors at the Oregon City Street Fair. The day was perfect (it did start to rain when we were loading up...), even though we didn't sell as much as we wanted!! It was fun to see good friends, and meet new ones! Joy was set up next to us, and Sue had her booth a few spaces up... Of course two of my favorite people, Margot and Karen, were there too and I bought the coolest vintage funeral basket with barbola detail from them! I loved seeing Joe walking around with his hands full of treasures, and was very happy to see Natalie and her sweet husband! Allie (and her cutie pie daughter) and Carrie, from Adorn, were there too! Randy, from Madison Park, was my first customer of the day, and Corinne and Karen, from Second Childhood Girlfriends, were finding some adorable things for their booth at Monticello. Joyce and Kelly, from Monticello, were also scouring the fair for some great vintage finds!! Kelly told me that her husband, upon looking at our space, ran to her and said "You have to come and look at this space, I thing you should have them at Monticello..." Of course she had to chuckle, when she informed him we already were...!!!
It was a great day to see all our good friends, but I have to say, the highlight of the day was meeting Christine LeFever!! Lisa and I had visited her blog before and were so excited to meet her.... We were absolutely stunned and excited when Christine invited us over for a drink after the show!! We knew we couldn't pass this opportunity to spent some time with someone we admire so much!! Not only is Christine an amazingly talented artist, she is a cool chick, too!!! We had so much fun sitting around her kitchen table just talking, munching and drinking, and touring her beautiful victorian home!! Chistine's husband, Greg, was absolutely delightful and someone I would definitely love to sit around with and talk, as he is a bottomless well of knowledge!! I definitely hope to see them again soon!
I did manage to find a few cool things! Here is the basket I mentioned above, isn't it gorgeous?!! The price was great, too!!
I have recently started collecting old celluloid boxes, and was very excited to find this beautiful one!!
I love these old clocks with roses and cherubs, and have quite a few!!
Lisa spotted this french market basket for me and I couldn't say no!!
We will be selling at Coburg on September 7th (our last show of the summer!!), it is a great show and I hope to see many of you there!!! You are sure to find some great treasures!!
My name is Isabel Feist Lang, and I am so happy you stopped by!! I was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, but one day I met my prince charming in his dress blues and now call Oregon home. I am a wife, mother of four and incurable collector!! I especially love pink roses and my favorite color is... pink!! My fondness for all things vintage has led me to a little venture selling at antique malls and shows! Thank you for visiting!
