Vintage Treasures from Mes Amis

It was touch and go with the iffy weather forecast leading up to the Mes Amis Vintage Antique Show last Saturday.  It poured and poured all day on Friday, we had a little rain on Sunday, but the day of the show turned out to be gorgeous.

Plan A was to bring just enough inventory to fit under the canopy, but I switched to plan B and loaded my truck to capacity when the forecast improved for Saturday.

The trees were dripping until the sun came up, so all the metal, chippy wood, silver, and everything else that wouldn't be damaged by a little drizzle, found a spot out from under the canopy.

She took shelter under the canopy until it was safe to come out.  I just finished her a few days before the show and didn't want to bring her back home for body repairs.

Let's take a walk down the street.....

This was the final show for Mes Amis at this outdoor location.  The next show will be held at the Placer County Fairgrounds on September 19th and 20th, just a stone's throw down the road.  You're all invited!

  1. Hi Betsy,
    I was at the show too--I had my booth with Burlap and Bees. I wish I had talked to you since I love your blog. Next time for sure!

  2. Oh, so much vintage goodness. I love that dress form covered in pattern paper! I have a torso manny sitting in my attic waiting to be a display piece in my imaginary mall booth and may have to borrow that idea.

  3. So glad it cleared up on Sunday for you! Such eye candy!! Did you come home with more than you went with? LOL I'd end up in the red because I'd buy everyone else's beauty's!

  4. I'm glad you had good weather, too. Sure are lots of beautiful things...I don't know what to look at first! Love the necklaces or rosaries, and the bird cage filled with star fish! Hope you sold LOTS! Hugs, Diane

  5. Sept you say!! Hmmmmm wonder if I can arrange a trip to Cali! Gorgeous stuff and I would be poor by the time I left it...heck I'm poor now!

    hugs, Linda

  6. I love all of your pictures and the wonderful treasures you showcased! I wish I could have been there with you!

  7. Oh Betsy! Your booth and treasures look like a little piece of vintage Heaven! Inspiring and wonderful presentation. I adore your taste!

  8. Betsy,
    What a wonderful show. Loved all your neighbors and their treasures too. Glad the weather was better for the show on Saturday. Oh how I wish I lived closer to visit this wonderful show. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful treasures with us.

  9. I love all your beautiful pictures!! Looks like such a wonderful show with so many treasures waiting to be found!! I so wish I could come!! I would LOVE it there, I'd be in heaven! :) xo Holly

  10. Oh, that looks like such a fun show.

    I pinned the birdcage full of starfish. I have a birdcage filled with numbers right now, but I like the shell idea.

  11. While looking at all the eye candy, I realized my mouth was open. Surprised I did not drool. :-D Glad the weather cooperated.

  12. Hi Betsy, You must have heard my sighs all the way to CA. I fell in love with so many items. What a wonderful show! I really like the setting with the pretty houses in the back. An indoor show certainly has its advantages too. I'm glad you had great weather and could bring more inventory.
    Have a lovely week!

  13. You have such a lovely space and very lovely neighbors. I would love to have shopped this event!

  14. Lovely photos, Betsy and so many fine treasures!!!!!

    I really do like outdoor shows but ya never know what the weather's going to be like!!


  15. Looks like a beautiful show, as always! Soooooo much cool stuff... To say that I would be in heaven would be an understatement! Happy that it turned out to be a great day for you! xo Kathleen

  16. So glad that the weather turned more agreeable! Liking that dress form!!Thanks for the walk-about~~~

  17. Betsy, I look through your pictures about 5 times...No I did not look I studied them, you do such a great job of displaying and your goods are soooo cool...I/m just not cool, but I did pick up a lot of display Ideas for my fluffy stuff at the Polka Dot Flea....Oh I wish you lived in town, I would give you the best booth at the show!! I was thinking about getting flowers, do you use real flowers in your displays?


  18. I agree with Carol...You have such awesome displays. I'm curious. In the picture right below your "new" dress form, is that an old metal chair back posing as a magnetic board? Love it! Glad the weather cooperated for your show!!!

  19. What a fabulous show! I'm afraid I would have needed a truck to carry everything I love home with me! I hope you had a successful day - so glad the weather held out for you. Mmmmmm - I wonder if I can talk The Mr. into a vaca in Cali in Sept.? xo Karen

  20. So happy to hear the weather cooperated for you. Shows are enough work as it is without mopping up and drying out your wares. It all looks amazing and I hope to make it a Mes Amis event one of these days. I did the Sacto-PDX drive in one day and it wasn't bad at all. ;)

  21. love those large stars out of yard sticks. Need to find some.
    drooling over here:)

  22. So many wonderful treasures; wish I lived in that pink house - an antique shopping mall right outside my front door!
