It was the end of a very busy weekend due to our jewelry show. Overall, pretty disappointing. Lots to learn on doing trunk shows... I came home from work last night to find my son James and his friend pleading to go to the Sunday market. Teenage boys willing to get up at the crack of dawn to go shopping ?? How could I say no.
This morning we started out in the freezing cold, on a day I didn't expect to find much. Season has ended and dealers are just getting rid of stuff. Who could believe it would be such a fantastic day. Once at home, we got to rake over our treasures. The boys purchased binoculars, a very special coin and an army mask from desert storm. Not exactly Cici Crib merchandise, but it made them happy.
I so love the vintage table I purchased. Thanks Miles for schlepping it to the car. I will eventually have the base painted. James' friend asked me what color will the table be. Maybe hot pink, I said. He burst out laughing. James added, my mom is a girly girl. Ok, maybe I am...
But how nice is this table in a little girls room with one of Cici Crib's mid century inspired modern lamps on it.
Everyone loved this sled, definitely made in the 1960's, when space exploration was all the rage. Space Rocket XS-17 Orbit Control.
Loved the graphics on the wooden base. A great piece of wall art. So I did, what you are not supposed to do to a collectible. I took it apart. All the extra parts will be saved. How fantastic would this look in a play room or boys bedroom wall...
A vanity tray and container for a very fancy little girl..
And this lamp, I just couldn't let go. An architectural melange of styles. Never the less, it is a great castle. It is ceramic with a wooden base and top. Took forever to clean up, but now looks perfect. I could see Jonathan Adler getting inspired over it. It could go either in a boy or girls room..
I want to line this peach crate with burlap and use it for display purposes.
Loved these kitschy girl pictures. Their hair is made out of yarn. They made me smile. Something so charming about them..
A weekend that started out a touch disappointing, ended on a very light note.
