Christie Antiques Show – Spring 2011

This past weekend we attended the Christie Spring Antiques Show. It was rainy, muddy and a little disappointing in the lamp department.

The show was good and I’m glad I wore my rubber booties. It was full of amazing furniture and vintage treasures, but I came home empty handed.

The lamps that I was expecting to see just weren’t there this year. There were however a some fabulous Sputnik ceiling fixtures that had me salivating…

The shape and style of these chairs were to-die-for but they weren’t in the best condition… Otherwise they’d be sitting in my dining room right now!

This painted glass door was remarkable. I wish I had a place for it because it’s definitely a one-of-a-kind find.

Each little triangle was hand painted. It’s so funny that this vintage find just happens to be so on-trend right now.

Both mine and my guys eyes lit up when we saw this turquoise Vespa… Our only argument would be who gets to drive and who has to ride on the back.

This turquoise dress form was so unique compared to the usual variety. It’s lovely on it’s own, but can you imagine it styled up and sitting pretty in your bedroom or dressing room (if you’re lucky enough to have one)?

Hmmm… I’m sensing a trend… A turquoise trend. We found this gem of an oven on our way home at Robert’s Gallery. His shop used to be located right around the corner from our old apartment and we loved poking our heads in and checking out his latest treasures. Now that he’s moved, it’s a little out of the way, but we always make a point of stopping by when we’re in the area.

So, that’s a wrap folks. I don’t even have any fab lamp photos to share with you. Wish me lamp luck for this weekends event… The Caledonia town-wide garage sale. It’s this little historic town about 45 minutes away from us and I’m betting that it’ll be full of fab lamps! I’ll keep you posted!
