Last weekend was the weekend for the big antique show at the old Hartland High School in Hartland, Michigan. My good junkin buddy Auntie from Kitschy Vintage and I have gone on and off for years and we love it! This year we got a little bit of a late start, but I really don't think we missed anything. Usually, we are standing in a mob of people waiting for the doors to open so we can pay our $4 to get in. Sometimes people are pushing, shoving and line-hopping-they must think there's gold nuggets hidden in there for how some of them act! This year, we got to by-pass the craziness and walk right in!
They changed the entrance, so I think that helped with things too. Our fellow junkin buddy Jennifer had a booth at the sale and every time we walked by it, it looked like it was packed with shoppers! I hope she had a great day. She had a most amazing, vintage wire triple hat stand at an incredibly low price! As we were leaving a couple was holding it and talking about hanging it from their ceiling and putting light bulbs in it to make it into an industrial looking light fixture. I wonder if they bought it.
I picked up a yellow and white tablecloth at a corner booth inside the gym and a bright, chartreuse green tablecloth from a couple of ladies that we've seen at several of our regular junkin adventures over the years. They even include printed washing instructions with every linen purchase for newbies! I don't necessarily agree with what they suggest (I would never, ever add bleach), but it's nice of them to be helpful.
These are my new tablecloths:
I am always thrilled when I can find new vintage tablecloths in bright colors in styles or patterns that I don't already have or haven't ever seen before!
This antique show happens every year and even though it's not huge, we usually find treasures to bring home-so mark your calendar for next year!
