Antique Fest 2011!!!



My town is having it's annual Antique Fest this weekend.  So if you are in the neighborhood, halfway between Portland and Seattle, come on by!



The Downtown area where we have our booth is actually called "antique row" due to all the antique shops in such a small area.



They close down two of the side streets and bring in a variety of vendors.



There are lots of goodies to be found.



Enough good junk for everyone!


All The shops also line the sidewalks with merchandise for sale.

This was our small section of sidewalk we were allotted last year. I'm not sure if it will be as fancy this year. I am NOT hauling the rug outside and it was too hard to cover all the small things at night if the wind blew the coverings around. So it will probably be mostly furniture outside.




Most of the shops have discounts for the Antique Fest, including us!


There is also a local Farmer's Market on Friday before more vintage/antique vendors set up shop for Saturday. It's lots of fun and this year the weather is promising to be perfect, in the low to mid 70's. However don't quote me on that because this IS Washington!



I'm getting ready to haul more things to the booth to sell for weekend. These table will be headed up there.

  After the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint treatment.


Also going is this antique walnut cabinet I bought this weekend at a garage sale...



and this chippy shabby white desk...



and this poor little old lady. She's been waiting patiently for her moment in the sun and will finally get to see if she can find a new home...




and this wrought iron plant stand. Not to mention lots of little treasures I need to get cleaned up, priced, wrapped, tagged and packed up. Ahhh, the joys of a vendor!
