Off to the Antique Fair

I always look forward to a
wonderful antique fair in Denver
"Old Glory"

There's always so much to see 
and plenty of temptation.
 Shabby Chic remains strong.

Everyone's booth has beautiful displays.
I could have bought all of these.
How about you?

Red chairs were everywhere.
It's a tendy color.

There weren't as many quilts as in the past,
and those that were available, had a hefty price tag.
But they're always beautiful, none the less.

I did find two treasures.

This sweet vintage kindergarten sized chair,
besides evoking school time memories,
it will be the perfect little chair for 
Sanford to stand on to be able to reach the sink
to wash his hands, brush his teeth, and 
basically play in the water.

I suppose the chair could be sanded and painted,
but look how the varnish has worn away from
so many little people sitting on it.

Or how the paint has worn away from the legs of the
chair as those same little students put their feet
under the chair and wrapped their legs around the 
metal legs.

Sometimes it's nice to leave the memories there.

The other piece was this
simple primitive wooden basket.
There's always room for another basket,
and think what it can hold.

During the summer months
it's fun to wander through an antique fair,
flea market or every a few garage sales.

You never know what treasures you'll find.
Happy treasure hunting!

Until Next Time-
