Take me out to the Fair...The Antique Fair that is!

This Sunday I had the pleasure of attending the Antique Fair in downtown Sacramento, with the fabulous Charles and Kari Shipman!

Kari runs an incredibly successful fashion blog and consulting business called Juniper James. This isn't your run of the mill fashion blog though - Kari is passionate about thrifting, and shows you how to leverage your dollars by shopping at thrift stores. Check her out at http://www.juniperjames.wordpress.com/

So other than the fact that it was freezing and the boots I wore were much too high for walking on asphalt for two hours, I had such an incredible time! I felt like a kid on Christmas. There were so many painfully gorgeous pieces with history, personality and charm. It was hard not to buy everything!

This lovely set of teacups and saucers made my heart stop. So beautiful and delicate, even with a small chip. I hope they found a good home.

This mini-billboard (maybe 24x36) was just too awesome for words. If my kitchen wasn't so tiny, and it wouldn't cost me a fortune to ship it home to Alabama, this would be mine! Gallo Winery is in Sonoma, California and they make fantastic wines. My little wino self had a hard time passing this one up.

And what's an antique fair without a $65 six pack of coke?

Just. Plain. Humorous. "For medicinal and family use." Really? Hmmm...Genius! Because if we're honest about the real reasons one drinks whiskey, this label about sums it up. Don't you think?

But here are the real treasures, the only things I actually went home with. I practically had fire alarms going off in my head when I laid eyes on these. Oh the possibilities! I absolutely cannot WAIT to use these vintage glass briolettes in my designs. What a find!

A big thank you to Kari Shipman of Juniper James, for inviting me on this fun little outing!
