I did split this into two parts. There was so much to see. So let's begin part I.
Of course, what a better backdrop could there be than this for any fair...
such a sweet welcome...
There was definitely something for everyone at the antique fair today!
First up, remember the barnyard animal sculptures from the Alameda Fair? ha!
This time he had rams and sheep but hadn't gotten around to making more goats...ha!
This just made me LOL!
How about some chandys! This seashell chandy was very pretty and fairly pricey (about $1800)...
Here is another one, same price. Very pretty in real life, looks kinda funky just laying there like that...
This vendor had quite a few sparklers.
I fell in deep affection with this one ha!
$500.00 and worth every penny. She did a beautiful job restoring it and added some unique crystals.
This next one they wanted $375.00 I've got a thing for wrought iron or wood chandies lately....
This one was very pretty, around $400.00 I think
These lamps were fabulous!
I wish I would have at least picked up the cranberry one...things you regret ha!
Love these lantern! around $60.00 for each.
This ornate trio in blue and white was selling for about $2500 for the set of candleabras, not sure what they wanted for the clock.
The little dragon on the top of the clock..so fierce! ha!
This would be more in my budget ha!
Lots of brass and silver and china..oh my ;)
This one was stunning and so ornate! Around $600.00
a close up of the spout
Love this set, about $60-$65 each
These are very trendy right now, prices have shot up so fast! This one was for $125.00 It was about 12" high. Vendor said she brought it from France.
Then there was this one for $20.00...
These large bottles are also very trendy...
These are also from France
around $300 something each
as well as these watering cans...
charming wood decoy for $45.00
These were around $60.00
Something else I wish I would have bought, they were very charming $40 for the pair!
lots of wire baskets, cloches, and what nots...
killer wire basket with tin insert
the rolling pins were $12 each, love the green weathered basket they were in
and this aqua wooden bucket
love this tete-a-tete
Charming soda shop chairs
I was crazy for this wooden arched gate! $160.00
These bottle carriers/trays were very popular (and over priced). I've seen these recently for $5.00 each, now $65 & up. (promise I won't get on my soap box about "trendy" stuff) but serious!
Vendor said his wife brought this back from Germany...
he wanted $175 for it, despite the obvious needed repairs
Some fabulous fabrics and quilts....
this one would be adorable for a cowboy theme room
along with the great colors in this quilt
this one was very pretty, she wanted $80.00
I loved this blue and white quilt
but the repair work was beyond my skill level....(loved the aqua wicker chairs though ha!)
I'm so seriously kicking myself over not buying this one....
so stunning! was marked down 50% off from $38.00 per yard and all she had left was 5.5 yards
(kick kick kick!)
these were so cheery
loved these too
In a sea of brass and glass....
was this pair
the other thing I'm still bummed over was this pair of prints
the aqua background was so pretty! they were $22.00 each, when I went back why was I surprised they were gone gone gone! me stooooopid! ha!
this oil was beautiful, $500.00
I so wanted this one ($65.00), and once again, went back and gone in less than 20 minutes..crikey!
loved this water color, artist was from New England ($125.00) the water damage on the mat and frame gave me 2nd thoughts
gotta love the chicken n roosters! $200.00
Great rustic frame and colors in the painting $40.00 this was about 36 x 24
talked her down to $25.00 so I bought it ha!
this was too cute $50.00 (the one behind it was pink)
smaller oil for $35.00
larger oil for $90.00
this one was very romantic, $175.00
these were $65 each
colors were so rich in this large oil $350.00
$45.00, again, very beautiful blend of colors
these prints were fabulous ..."I am the very model of a modern major general" ... ha! $25 each.
this piece of printed burlap was $15.00
fabulous box; I think it was $50 something
When I asked the guy how much for this ornate brass frame he responded with "$1,000.00", so I replied with..."will you take $5.00?" ha! (he wanted $100.00) nuff said ;)
this handpainted toleware was gorgeous $165.00
