THE HIGHLIGHT of my weekend was a road trip to Dundas, Ontario for the Christie Antiques Show held every May and September. With over 300 vendors and almost 10 acres of antiques, it's a show not to be missed (which is why I tackled the 3 hour drive, leaving at 5am!). I wondered if I would see Sarah Richardson from Sarah's House and her sidekick Tommy filming for her show like I did last year but no luck. But there was no shortage of fantastic stuff to see!
I was looking for a couple of specific things this time: a dressform so I can photograph my bags to show scale, a small side table for my porch, a frame for my booth sign and anything else that catches my eye!
dressform: $60(incredible!!!); white side table: $50; oval frame for booth sign: $15.
I also found 4 shoe stretchers: $13 (will group nicely on the wall with my shoe mold from Paris), canvas yarn basket: $30 (which I have no idea what I'll do with yet - it just needs a good scrubbing).
All in all, definitely worth the drive no matter how difficult it is to get up and out by 5am!
