Held on the third Sunday of every month, this antiques market has over 800 dealers and over 20 acres of collectables. I think I walked most of it, but then started getting really dehydrated and hungry, so I had to make myself leave. I only walked away with a skeleton key (for my sister to use in her jewelry making), a succulent, and a spatula to mix inks - I obviously had to restrain myself from buying the collection of vintage cameras and the mid-century modern buffet I had my eye on. Perhaps next month :)
Here are some photos I snapped along the way (please excuse the iphone photography).
So excited to go in!
Old typewriter - with its own case and everything.
There were some great pieces here
Beautiful antique bottles from the 1920's
Old board games
Succulent plants of every kind. I always have to buy one when I walk by.
Antique sewing machine.
I have one similar to this at my parents house - I must take it back.
Lovely pastel colored children's chairs. If I had a kid I would buy the lot.
For the avid Santa collector - what the?!
Wooden crates, I love!
This guy had a collection of everything - the skeleton keys were my favs.
I really want to start a collection of vintage cameras, I've always loved cameras.
Freaky ass dolls.
That's it! Next time I'm going with the intention of making some real purchases, but I was happy to go and get a feel of the market. Do any of you go to antique markets, and if so, is there anything really unique you've made with these old treasures? Keys, bottles, etc.?
