If you live in Ontario and are a lover of all things old, musty and entertaining you were at one of two places this past weekend. A retirement home drag show … or The Christie Antique Show and Sale.
I went to the later. But only because tickets to the former were all sold out.
The Christie Antique Show is the largest antique show and sale in Canada covering the foot numbing area of 10 acres. 10 acres of walking, eating, debating, scowling, delighting and buying.
I’ll have a post for you on my favourite finds from the show next week, but first I bring you the most popular thing found at Christie’s this year.
Last year … it was the boot.
This year the hat.
And with the heat somewhere around the temperature of a young boy’s blood after seeing his first boob … a hat was a necessity.
I met Becky, The Art of Doing Stuff fan, at the french fry stand. If you ever go to a show and you think I might be there, just wait by the french fry stand. Any of them. Doesn’t matter. Chances are I’ll hit all of them throughout the day at some point.
My favourite hat? My favourite “look” in general? The gal directly above. No. Not her. The one in all white, above the girl who is directly above. She has the perfect amount of trend and classic.
Next week … a look at some of the unusual, beautiful, interesting and ecclectic finds I brought home. From the retirement home drag show. They’re surprisingly difficult to wrestle into your car, those old people. I think it’s the toenails.
