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!

Wow! I didn't even know you did shows. Wish I'd been able to go to any (read ALL!) of them. Soon maybe. Someday. Ran into Leah Anderson today, and thought of you!! xxx
