Winter Antiques Show

Over the weekend, we went to an antique show that a local shop was hosting.  They had rented out a very large space in a different location, and had over 40 vendors.  There were rooms and rooms of great things to see.  Of course, I had to take a few pictures.

I loved this white cabinet.  I've never seen one with this shape before.

This toy piano worked and sounded great.  Handy Boy had to play a few keys, of course.  He knows to be gentle, and has to ask us before he touches anything. 

Love these coin banks, shaped like globes.



Even if you don't buy antiques, you can get a lot of decorating ideas by looking at all of the "rooms" they have set up for display. 

We purchased a few small items.  I had to buy this hand mirror.  I've never seen a hand mirror with a color like this.  It was in great shape, and only $12.  The mirror is beveled glass. 
I need to decide if I want to add it to my collection of hand mirrors on our bathroom wall, shown in this post 

We also found these two medium green vintage Fiesta plates for only $6 and $8!  They are 6" and 7" and in great shape.  They are worth over $30 each.  A great addition to our vintage Fiesta collection.

Great finds! I'll have to check out more of your blog. I see you're a Fiestaware lover too. I don't have a lot of it, but I would love to have more.

I think I know where you are talking about! Does it start with an 'S' and end in Farm? If so, it was somewhere that I wanted to go last weekend but couldn't!

I love going to this kind of place, too. Wish I had a car load of money when I go. :)
I have a collection of mirrors (not hand mirrors..well, one) in my entry hall...

Looks like you were very good about not buying everything. They had some lovely stuff. I like your hand held mirror, very pretty.
