Clark County Antiques Show

Lisa and I had a great time today visiting the Clark County Antiques Show!! We were not planning to go, but then Lisa called me yesterday evening and said "I need to get out of the house"!! So, of course, I was up for it!! It was so much fun visiting with our friends, and we came home with some cool treasures...!! We were feeling thrifty, so all our finds were very inexpensive ~ the best part!

We had a great time visiting with our good friends Joe ~ Barn House and Cindy ~ Tarte, they always put up some beautiful and masterful displays, true eye candy!! See for yourselves!!

We always loooove spending time with our sweet friend Joy! She was there with her sister Terri (left), who made her debut at this show...! Terri, you are doing a great job!

We were very excited to see our friend Susan, her space is always tempting and there are always a ton of things I would gladly take home!!

Here are the beautiful treasures I brought home with me:

... large vintage clear plastic and fabric hatbox ($10)...

... gorgeous vintage landscape oil ($20)...

... darling vintage knitting bags ($5 each!)...

... assortment of fabric covered buttons, vintage lace, tiny forks, millinery flowers, rick rack and crystal knobs (total for everything $22)...

and finally a vintage child's cashing machine ($5)... And it still works!!


  1. Sounds like you gals had fun...I'm loving the cash register, what a find! Thanks so much for sharing.

  7. Wow! I love all of your finds...they are fabulous! Especially that wee cash fun! thanks for sharing- your blog is always so wonderful!

  8. What fun!! I love the vintage oil painting - the price would be a real bargain around here. I have a red cash register like that one from my childhood (I'm vintage in age, too!!) Thanks for the tour. Sally

  9. Hi, popping over from The Paris Apartment. Love your blog and that vintage toile-esque handbag for just $5!! What a steal! Looks like a fun day!

  10. Oooooh Fabulous finds! What a great way to "get out of the house!" Take me! Take me!


  11. What a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon! The basket of *stuff* is my favorite... I loved the sweet post about your mother.

  12. Great finds! Love the floral vintage knitting bag. I have been wanting one in a local antique mall booth for for so long now, but can never get myself to pay the $28 they are asking for it, even though it is the most gorgeous rose fabric. You are so lucky finding yours for $5!!

  13. What fun! What fun! Thanks for sharing all the really beautiful things. Beautiful fabrics and really unique treasures.

  14. Oh my goodness! I think I just found another favorite place to visit. Thank you for the tour. I would love it all. That painting, the cash register... ahhh!
