Last week was the autumn antique fair - one of my favorite happenings of the year!
Here's my loot - I found some really neat stuff and (luckily!) didn't spend too many pennies for most of it.
Top row: Little bits - some litho ephemera I couldn't leave behind, sweet old buttons, and a German children's storybook pamphlet with the prettiest colors.
Second row: A beautiful copy of Tony Sarg's Surprise Book & a funny blow-mold PigDog bank I couldn't resist
Third row: Old Fulton Sign Writer printing kit full of stamps (A similar one (and in nicer shape!) is right here & a beautiful turn of the century little fancy-boy portrait I had been eyeing for the last 3 fairs!
Fourth row: The best gem of the day! A little old metal (working/restored) radio painted with flowers.
Poking around at all the beautiful things keeps me on a dust-buzz for weeks after the actual fair!
Even though lots of the offerings are too fancy or pricey to even dream about actually owning (this year, the heartbreaker was a painted diorama of a ship that cost the same as a brand-new car!) it's fun to be able to peer and paw at it all - even if it's just for an afternoon.
