Our Day at Mes Amis

We really lucked out with perfect weather for the Mes Amis Vintage Antique Show in Roseville last weekend.  We had been plagued with horrible winds and pop up storms the week leading up to the show, but everything calmed down once Saturday rolled around.

I'm in the process of making up more of these signs from salvaged wood and the stash of vinyl letters I found at a yard sale last summer.

It's so nice to be able to spread out in a 15' x 20' booth space.
I didn't realize just how many projects and yard sale finds never made it to my blog until now.  That's what happens when things get buried in my garage and don't see the light of day until show time:-)

A rusty old screen door insert became a picture/card holder.  The creation next to it is part of an antique crib I purchased ages ago, I just added some hooks and clips for hanging pictures and accessories.  I'm sure the headboard would have sold also, but I didn't have room in my truck for everything.

Paris postage stamp stencil on an old cabinet door.  I left the original hinges on top because they were painted over and wouldn't budge, then I added an old drawer pull on the bottom.

The chalkboard folds down to make a sweet little table.

I gave the backs of the red boards the chalkboard treatment because they were stained and didn't look so good.

The only mishap during the day was when an unexpected gust of wind knocked over my earring display.  There was only one casualty, so it could have been much worse.

You know how much I love little storage boxes!!

This is a smaller version of the stenciled typewriter case I made a few months ago.  

Lace and muslin covered lampshade frames are always good sellers.

As usual, I never had more than a few moments to get out and look around, but I did get pictures of a few booths that were within shouting distance.

Our neighbor My Favorite Things.
I was so busy and didn't have time to make myself a banner, so Tina was kind enough to make me all the letters I need to put a My Salvaged Treasures banner together.

Thank you to the entire Mes Amis team for another fabulous show!!  Looking forward to doing it all again in September.
