More Expo and found treasures

This year the show was able to place a bunch of us friends together, and we sure had a lot of fun!!! This was the first summer Expo I did without Lisa, and even though she came to help on Friday, I was pretty much glued to my space all weekend! I was able to peel away a couple of times for a little shopping and to take a few pictures...

Right next to me was my sweet friend Joy! Her laughter and good disposition keeps us all happy!!

Next to Joy was our friend Diane, she always has the most exquisite and romantic things, which always make me drool....

Next to Diane were Shannon and Maryann (missing for health reasons), a daughter-mother team with a wonderful talent to find beautiful items!!

Across from us were Julie (in the photo) and Christa, from Kindred Roses, their wonderful wares were flying off their booth all weekend!!

The gang!! From left to right, Kara (Diane's daughter), Diane, Joy, Shannon and me (don't you love my umbrella...?!!)!

My finds from this weekend include...

... an old velvet photo album...

... a pair of victorian boots (I have been wanting some for a long time!!)...

... Vintage crochet trim and old handwritten letters...

... a great (victorian?) chair...

... vintage barkcloth pieces....

... a floral pillow....

... a darling vintage baby coat, maybe used for christening...?

... vintage linens...

... and finally a chair I found at the end of the show for $1!! It's falling apart but I love that base and am sure I can find a use for it!!

There were a couple of other things I bought but they are buried under some furniture, so I will have to show them later!! Right now there is no time to rest, as I get ready for the Barn House Flea Market this Saturday... I will be back soon with some sneak peeks!!


  1. This market looks great! Every stand seems only to have treasures! At the markets here I always have to dig for great stuff! And I see the vanity table I was looking for here, of all places!! I think I'll move to the States!

  2. Oh how I wish I lived in Oregon. I would love to shop in your antique malls and at all these awesome shows. Everything I see is just pure eye candy. Maybe someday I will have to rent myself a U-haul and take a summer roadtrip to load it up... :-)

    Love that floral pillows. The colors are so pretty!!

  3. That looks so wondeful. How lovely to be surrounded by like-minded people and beauiful finds!

  4. Look at the smiles on all your faces. I have never seen anything but smiles on girls that do shows. Everything was so tempting and wonderful. Loved your post.
    Good luck with your show.

  5. I always love all your photos, and come to you for great display ideas. Thanks for showing all the great gals and their goods.

  6. Well as always... your space looked great and you had fun. You are always so inspiring with your great and positive attitude. Havwe a wonderful day!


  7. Love your finds! I wish I had more time to search, but just didn't have the time. I did find what I was looking for though. A fun 1950's metal cart to hold my microwave and some recipe books and an old small suitcase.

    Loved visiting your booth and next time I will give myself more time.

  8. It was so fun to see you this weekend, love your finds! I've been bad at posting (as you reminded me, thanks. ) I need to get my pics posted still from the weekend. I've been trying to get ready for BH and work my day job too - I'm excited for this weekend, hope we have a great show!!
