Mes Amis Antique Show - What a Day!

It was a fun-filled day on Saturday for the Mes Amis Antique Show in Roseville thanks to Sandy from The Olive and Rose.  The weather was gorgeous and there was a steady stream of  happy shoppers all day. Once again, I was so busy and never had time to come up for air until late in the day.  I miss not being able to get out to visit other vendors, but being busy is a good thing! 

It's always a treat to have plenty of room to spread out.

This is my Adjust-O-Matic friend I bought a few months ago.  I just can't seem to part with her, so I'll be using her for display.  She has a stand, but I thought it would be a bad idea to use it outside; don't want her hitting the pavement after a gust of wind.

My S & H Green Stamp necklaces were a big hit.  I'll be listing some of these in my Etsy shop as soon as I can get some decent pictures.  I'm having the hardest time photographing the convex glass.


A few of my treasures.....

....and more treasures.  It was so nice to see my blogging friends again.
 Marsha from Sassy Mini Dolls and

Courtney from French Country Cottage.  I wish I had more time to visit with both of you.

This is Sandy's 1963 Shasta trailer.  She did a fabulous job decorating the inside with beautiful vintage goodies.

Sandy and Annette set up shop right in front of the trailer. 
A big THANK YOU to Sandy, her family, and her friends for making this show a huge success!

So glad you had a successful show. Love the stamp necklace. Glad the weather cooperated. I was able to attend the Country Living Fair in Columbus, OH this past weekend. Saw many great things and weather was beautiful. Now I back in "hot" AZ.

I love your set up. The adjustable dress form is a great way to display your beautiful necklaces. So glad they were a hit. Wish everyone could have a vintage trailer, like your friend has; it adds a lot of charm to the set up. Have a Blessed day.

Oh, I loved seeing the picture of you and Marsha together. She is one of my favorites, and I have never had the opportunity to meet any of my blogging friends anywhere. The fair you went to is superb! I am jealous!

Wonderful selection of treasures displayed here. Love your mannequins! Thank you for sharing. The weather looks great at the outdoor displays...we spent a day at a huge "Junk Fest" last week while we were away on vacation. It was in a small town in the US (I am Canadian)...but the weather was so cold that it was not as enjoyable as it should have been.
