Yesterday I was lucky enought to steal away to Charlotte with my friend Sandy...to the Metrolina Spring Extravagaza! (for those of you that don't know it is a huge antique market, that they have on the first weekend of every month, and 2X a year they have an extravaganza where there are tons more vendors) The weather was beautiful and there was inspiration around every corner.
I woke up this morning still thinking about a couple things that I was like "I will be back to get that"! But before I knew it it was 4:00 and time to leave. I don't even think we scratched the surface. But it was a so much fun, and something I REALLY want to try to do every 1st weekend.
Anyway, for those of you within driving distance I HIGHLY reccommend it.
Here are some random shots I took of things that struck my fancy.
|such a pretty blue...ya'll know how much I love dishes!|
|For the Biology and flower lover...flower lover I am, biologist I am NOT, but I could pretend for this beauty...|
This is one that got away! I love all of the colors!
|They just don't transport things like they used to...I could think of lots of uses for these.|
|More on this later.....|
|This wedgewood china had the prettiest color yellow...|
|A beautiful vinyette of paintings...From The Pink Party Dress. Turns out the owner, Cameron, and I have bid against each other in a couple of auctions....she has a few pieces that just slipped thru my fingers:) She is from Columbia too. Amazing style, you must check her out.|
|I couldn't resist this shot..that said.....these tables TOTALLY stress me out. ...but I bet there are thousands of things ready to be recreated from all of this jumble of beads...there might even be a diamond...so, dig, dig, dig!|
|These industrial beauties. There is just something about them...|
|accidently chopped off the nose...but can't you just see this in some lucky girls bedroom? |
The paint and patina are so pretty.
|My friend and I both spotted these behind a table at the same time....looked at each other and said |
"Do you see what I see????" and ran to fondle the corbels. Something about them just strewn on the straw was so cool. They were GORG!
|Turns out there was a moment when we thought we needed a truck!|
|those flecks of paint...to Die for...oh, and I think we snapped this photo because the door was FINALLY shut!|
