Oh, my people, antique show season has arrived and it's a wonderful, french fry filled, thing.
Costume jewellery under glass with tree reflections
Today I went to the first big antique show of the season. The Aberfoyle Saturday Special is a fairly large open antique market. The market is usually open only on Sundays throughout the warm weather, but twice a year, a special (more expensive but comes with a fancy paper wristband) Saturday show takes place.
I went on Saturday and found a couple of things for myself and took a lot of photos. All of those will be coming up later in the week along a compelling story about how I groggily woke up one morning last week with a half eaten cookie in my hand.
The jewellery case sneak peak above has of course been transformed into a puzzle. A 25 piece and an 81 piece.
The 25 Piece Puzzle
One piece for every time I said "I don't have room for it" during the day at the show.
The 81 Piece Puzzle
One piece for every time I said "This is ugly. I like it."
Have a good remainder of your weekend.
Sounds like you had fun browsing through antiquity. You never know what you might find.... which keeps Antiques Roadshow in solid ratings.
Oh, thank you! I've been up all night and this is the perfect thing to decompress with before I go to sleep. Gorgeous photo!
Ooo - cant' wait to see what you found! Wonderful puzzle, great picture.
Wow! Can't wait to hear about waking up with a half-eaten cookie! I'm not even sure that's possible!
Been there. Done that. Lol 😆
ohhh, haven't been there in years!! I, like you, use antique dishes for dinnerware and that was my go to place! I might have to head up #6 some Sunday for a wee boo!
Oooo was wondering if you’d go, especially since the Christie one is no longer with us 😢. I thought about it but that many people in one place can give me the heebie jeebies. I heard that last year they bussed folks from other parking lots?
I remember my mum wearing those aurora borealis brooches…. I thought they were GORGEOUS! Thanks for the memory on Mother’s Day 😁
can't wait for the photos of the antique show and to see what you got!!
Loved it. Thank you.
I'm definitely missing Christie's Antiques. How does this compare to Christie's?
