The Christie Antique Show

Oh what a show!  Only problem is its too big for one day!  Its only a one day show held twice a year here in Southern Ontario.  HUGE and lots of lots of stuff!  I like to cover it twice, just to see if I missed anything the first time, but my friend didn't want to cover it again (bummer).  Anyway, I didn't take any photos there but here is SOME of the stuff I bought…

two old chippy columns…don't know where I'll put them yet, but I love them!  I also bought a round column, but it didn't have a top cap, so its kind of full of spider webs.  I've left it in the garage until I clean it out!!

I HAD to buy this Queen Mum candy tin.  I swore no more little chatchkis, but The QM has a special meaning to me, and I collect Royal Family junk.  How could I say no?

No more tins!!!

And then I spotted this great little cubby to place on top of my desk.  How could I not buy it, especially for $20???

Once I place it on my desk, I'll show you guys how wonderful it looks!  My friend wasnt impressed by it, but I think its rather fetching!

I swore I wasn't going to buy smalls, but I couldn't resist the Charlie Brown lunch box!  It doesn't have its original thermos, but I don't care.  It was only $10 (my friend didn't think it was worth $0.10 but I loved it).

Bought not one…

not two…

but three…

silver plated food covers!  Aren't they lovely?  Look at the details, its on both sides.  They are a little dented/dinged, but I loved them.  They haven't found their home yet either…must find home for them!

Sooooo pretty!

This great barrel was from another antique show I went to two weeks ago.  I've got a candy problem…  Anyway, thats all my loot from this week.  Wow do I love summer and antique shows!!

I'm linking up to these great blog!!

Have a great day!

  1. Well I found your blog while searching for antique silver dome covers, so you can imagine how jealous I am over your find-- even if it was over a year ago! I can imagine that they still make you very happy every time you look at them. I, too, have a soft spot for the Queen Mum and her King, that was a great find also. In case you're wondering, I got the quote before I even saw your name. "Yeah, I love him awful, Ma!" "Oh, God..."


Thanks for taking the time to make a comment, I LOVE hearing from you!
