Remnants Of The Past!
That is the name of the awesome antique show/sale in Nipomo California. I spent the day there today, and it's always amazing. The photos don't do it justice. These are just some of the scenes outdoors. There is a whole giant inside the barn part too. It's pretty dark and crowded inside, so no photos of that.
Everyone brings their best, prettiest, unique, and expensive stuff. There are many designers shopping, as well as us ladies who love to shop. There are a few men shopping as well. What are we shopping for? Well, there is something for everyone. Things to decorate with, things to collect, even plants, flowers, and sweet treats.
Sue Whitney was there the founder of Junkmarket. She had her book for sale, and of course I bought one for her to sign. It's all about finding junk, and what to do with great flea market junk, and junk in general once you get it home. Later in the afternoon she was holding a class on making a fairy garden. I did not stay for that, as we had a very long drive home. I have to say it was worth getting up extra early, and driving for over 2 hours. Even if you didn't buy anything, just to get some decorating ideas was worth it.
I got to visit with Heather Bullard. If you haven't been to her blog or website, you should check it out. I saw a few other flea market friends as well.
I bought a couple of fun things I will show soon on a future post. I'm waiting til after the flea market tomorrow.
This show happens in April and October. You might remember me talking about it last fall. Anyway, I have to go and rest up, as it's another early morning tomorrow.
Hope you enjoy a tiny glimpse of the show.
Have a great weekend.
Chat again soon.
