July Expo 2011!

Jan and her son Spencer were out for a little ride on this very cool rickshaw she spied at Expo. There were some very special things to buy this year, I found a great dress form, cobalt float, French sign and lots of other great finds. It is always good to see old friends from far away and just next door. In this business sometimes you only see friends when you are at a show so you try and make the most of every moment.

Isabella loves her parasol another vendor gave her during the show. It was sunny and warm and a great day to be spending outside. Isabella made a lot of new friends, she came home with an armload of gifts and stories. One of her favorites is her robot kitty given to her by our vendor neighbor, yes, the meowing is creepy but we love her like a family member.

We are now getting ready for Barn House!!! Our favorite!!
We also have a lot of great treasures in the shop that we found at Expo.

Love and Peace,

California and beyond...

It has been about 3 weeks since we have been back from California. The only bump in our trip was the trailer flat tire on the Red Bluff exit on our way back home. The Remnants of the Past antique show was beautiful, full of amazing merchandise, great people and good sales. I wish I was back there right now soaking up the sun, eating a wonderful dinner on Judy's lawn and chit chatting about antiques!

Taking a break after set up day in Judy's beautiful back yard, eating amazing food and drinking good wine. I must have had 3 glasses of white wine, I slept well that night.

My awesome husband, Chris!

There are lots of wonderful shops in Carmel, we were there for about 4 hours, we ate breakfast, peeked in shops, talked to shop owners and drooled over wonderful antiques.
Postcard perfect!

Chris is making last minute repairs to an English floor lamp, it was one of the first items to sell.
I have to honestly admit, I was a nervous wreck. It has been awhile since I have done an antique show out of town and never in California. When I don't know what to expect, new experiences make me clam up a bit. I relaxed at Alameda, I had been there before and I knew what to expect, after a couple of hours I was as loose as a goose, or maybe it was the lack of sleep!
Now we are preparing for Farm Chicks, I am supper excited, I have found some fun items for the show although I really don't have a set plan for the display yet. 
Thank you Judy Watkins, your show was marvelous, fun and you made  us feel so welcome.

See you in Spokane!

New Year

I saw my first episode of American Pickers last night! You wonder why? well, we don't have cable but we do have an Xbox thingy now so we can see old episodes! Well, I am officially a fan, it is great because I can relate to so much of what they do, what treasures they find in some of the oddest places, the interesting people they meet and how it all goes down not to mention it is funny as heck because of their experiences. Watching that show makes me love what I do that much more. I really think Lynne and I could do that, the West Coast version female style and we could give them a run for their money too!! Okay, I will stop dreaming...
As you know I have been an antique dealer for a long time, I was about 9 when I bought my first antique, probably jewelry and I have been hooked ever since. I have seen a lot of great antiques, heard hilarious and interesting stories and been witness to some disturbing events by people.
In my world of antiques there are the not so nice antique dealers and then there are the gracious and kind people who I am happy to call my friends. They have inspired me in countless ways as an artist, mother and business person.
  I am excited about the future of Thea's Interiors in the Pearl District, the great antiques we will find and the new artists that will have in shop. One of our new artist just in is furniture maker Inventia Design, a local custom fine furniture maker who's style ranges from farm tables to French style round pedestal tables to English inspired coffee tables and more. We have one table in at the moment and more to come.

Our online (virtual) shop is now open, we are still adding product and trying make it feel like you were shopping in the brick and mortar store, it will get there.
Great news! we will have a booth at Farm Chicks in Spokane this year and hopefully a few more in Washington and maybe California.
We will keep you posted.

May you have a wonderful and prosperous new year!!
