What a Day at Mes Amis

The shoppers were out bright and early on Saturday morning for the Mes Amis Vintage Antiques Show in Roseville, Ca.  What a day!  We arrived at 3:15am and were set up and ready to go by the time shoppers started showing up before the official 8:00am opening time.  It had to be close to noon before I was ever able to sit down, but that's a good thing because I sure had a lot less to pack up at the end of a very tiring day.

I hated to see Ms. Adjust-O-Matic go, but she found a new home with a sweet lady who was going to display her in her sewing room.

All the buckets I recently embellished with labels sold.  At the end of the day I didn't have to pack up the white table, tall glass lamps, and the rusty white folding display rack.  The chippy old FLOWERS cooler I posted about last week was the first thing to go.

This was the last time my space was empty.  At least my mom took the time to sit down before the shoppers arrived.  That's her behind the table waving:-)

All the cameras, typing book, and the Royal typewriter now have new homes.
About an hour into the show I noticed four teenage boys laughing as they were typing something.  After they walked away I went to check it out, and just as I suspected, their little note was more like something you'd see on a bathroom wall.  Yep, it was quite detailed and they even left a phone number.

Some of my brooches I pinned to old black and white photographs.

All four of the chippy old wheels from an antique crib were bought by one customer; she wanted them for her collection.  Door knobs and skeleton keys always fly off the table.

Seller's remorse set in soon after all my salt and pepper shakers left.  Most of the silver is gone too and at least half of the stamped silverware.

I never got a "before" picture of the sweet pink medicine cabinet I bought in Oregon last month.  What a mess it was, but after good cleaning it was good to go.  The cabinet, crib springs, one ridge cap basket, and collapsible laundry basket are no longer with me.

Wonderful entertainment all day long from Music by Derek Thomas.

Lipstick Gypsy and their always fabulous pink vintage trailer.

Annette Eagle's beautiful necklaces.  Gorgeous!

Aren't these so much fun?  More beautiful creations by Annette.  

This is part of Sandy's beautiful space, The Olive and Rose and Mes Amis creator.  You can see part of her restored Shasta trailer on the left.

I have less than three weeks before my next show.  I'll try to remember to come up for air every once in a while:-)
