This weekend was one that I had been looking forward to all summer. It was the weekend of the Portland Antiques & Collectibles Show. With 1400 dealer spaces it is the largest show of its kind in the NW United States. On Friday dealers can pay $30 for early admission 1 day before general admission. I was glad to do so but due to some confusion I showed up 90 minutes after it began. Despite my lateness nearly every piece that I wanted was priced well and still available.
I have always wanted to buy a Hans Wegner style rocking chair but had never seen one at a pickable price. I was glad to buy this one and the ottoman was a sweet bonus. It is now available at Hawthorne Vintage.
I was definitely shopping for summer items and this bullet planter and planter rack were just what I was looking for. This is only the second fiberglass bullet planter I have ever bought and it has already been sold.
The planter rack was sold at Portland Flea.
Saturday was the only day of the week that Heather was available to do any upholstery so I skipped going to any sales to help her finish this Eames style chair. It turned out beautifully and //Update// has been SOLD at Hawthorne Vintage.
On Sunday I got busy shopping again and made my usual flea market stop. I found this unusual vase with starburst cutouts as well as a project lamp and an industrial table base. SOLD
The eyeball table lamp was refinished & rewired. SOLD
I will be making a reclaimed wood top for this adjustable table base.
