Camas Antique Faire

Wow! What an awesome day it was at the Camas Antique Faire!! 
Thanks to Debbie & Laurie of Worthy Goods for all your hard work in organizing
 such a great day!
The weather...the crowds...the vendors...were all done to perfection!
Here are a few pics of my booth before the crowds arrived and stripped me clean!
It was so nice to leave with less of a load!

Looking forward to doing it again next year!!

Does anyone know when a collection becomes an obsession? I'm afraid I'm getting close to that fine line! I can't seem to control myself when it comes to garden carts!! I found another one yesterday that has been under a deck for the last 50 years, and who knows how long was in use before that! It's a turn of the century wooden wheelbarrow that is in perfect condition! I've counted 15 goat carts, wheelbarrows, hand carts, my garden! Oh my...I do sell one occasionally, but they are so precious it's hard to let them go! They are the perfect compliment to a basket of fleurs! Does anyone else have this disease!

Treasure Hunting

What a fun day of Treasure Hunting I had today! I've decided to do the Camas Antique Faire on August 27th, and am finding a mother lode of fun stuff for it! I've posted a few sneek peeks of my garage setup to see what I can fit in my won't want to miss this awesome sale! I've also included pics of some recent treasures I've found for the's so hard to bring them to the shop once I've placed them in my garden!

 I found a pair of these adorable puppy dogs holding a basket of fleurs!
 Take a look at this unbelievable copper weathervane! 
Another incredible find that's going to be hard to give up!!
 Isn't this the cutest French Poodle you've ever seen?

 Sorry...Bella isn't for sale...she's just a ham for getting her picture taken!
This is the cutest donkey and cart I've ever seen! The person I bought it from says it's been sitting in the backyard of a house he bought for over 50 years! What a great vintage patina on this little guy!
 How do I begin to put a price on him?

Well, that's it for now...Soon I'll start teasing you with some incredible things I'm saving for the 
Monticello Fall Sale starting Sept. 9th.!
