Antique Show Success

This is a very old puppet show of the classic fairy tales.
But the cool thing is all the figures are mechanical, and
were actually moving around when I took this shot.

This speaks for itself. A booth of just all vintage Chanel bags!

I have a thing for skulls. Loved these crystal skull book ends!

Arts and Crafts! Always a classic.

Ok... The Antique show was pretty amazing. The furniture section was my favorite by far! Basically, each booth's quality of merchandise is what I've seen in the showrooms when I shop for my clients, however I have never seen so much quality and great art under one huge roof. The PDC in Weho or any other large design center contains beautiful items as well, but those items are typically new. This was all vintage and antique...Heaven! I snapped some photos, but was so excited and overwhelmed that I put away my camera and focused on shopping. It is really hard to do both at the same time! We did purchase some pieces of art work...A Keith Haring litho, some vintage French show posters of Man Ray, a very old fencing mask, a mirror, and a great oil painting for our new living room. I'll post photos of these things within the next couple of weeks. Oh.. one vendor had 3 amazing Roy Lichtenstein's...but of course they were not within our budget. Always next time though!
