A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood on Sunday for the Roseville Spring Antique Market.  Once again, Sandy, Erika, and their team from The Tattered House did an amazing job organizing this event.  Every April and September, a portion of Oak Street in downtown Roseville is blocked off to make room for the 50+ vendors and gazillions of shoppers.  I think the friendly atmosphere and cozy setting makes this show so much fun.

My mom joined me again and brought along some of her treasures to sell.  She's such a trooper and still keeps up with all the action.  We prayed that the slight chance of rain for late afternoon would hold off until after the show.  We were packed up and ready to leave at 6:15pm, just as it started to sprinkle. 

A few pictures of my space....

Fresh blooms in a kerosene lantern base and an old metal drawer.

How true!


My Mod Podge mannequin is sporting some necklaces made from chandelier crystals.  I wanted to get a picture of her with my brother, but he was worried about a scandal. 

My brother Bob and my sister-in-law Cindee.  They live in Roseville and always like to come over to check out the action.

Look who came out to shop and visit.  I was so happy to be able to meet two bloggy friends in person.  I only wish we had more time to visit...



It was a very busy day and I only had a chance to get out to a couple of booths before the crowd arrived.  So many wonderful treasures.

Lipstick Gypsy all the way from Idaho.
  Look at these amazing feather earrings!

Aren't these burlap pillows wonderful?

Who wouldn't love a bottle of wine wrapped up in these bags?

I watched some lucky people walking away with this fabulous mattress art.  If only I had room in my truck!

The Roseville Fall Antique Market will be held on September 18, 2011.

That looks like so much fun. I want to whine and say I wished I lived close to an area like that. I would set up a table.
Your tent was full. I am amaized how smart some ladies are and can set their own tents up. I always laugh and say I know how to hold a hammer and thats its when it comes to tools.
Do you do your own set up?

Also meeting all the blogers ladies Wow
