Christie Conservation Area Antique Show 2013

Tuesday 28 May 2013

One of the first posts I did on this blog was about my annual trek to the Christie Conservation Area's antique show. I posted about it again last year meaning Not My Typewriter has now been around for more than two years. [Insert pat-on-the-back here.]

This year I came home from Christies empty-handed, with the exception of a few Little Golden Books to add to my collection of vintage picture books. My thriftiness wasn't because I couldn't find anything I wanted to buy, rather my wallet is a little tight these days, mostly due to a spontaneous trip to Amsterdam I just booked for the end of August! It should be the medicine I need to cure the mild case of restlessness I've been suffering from this Spring.

Despite promising myself not to spend a lot of money, I still had a wonderful time wandering from booth to booth, looking at gems and oddities from generations gone by.


  1. Hurray for more than 2 years of blogging. And as always the photos are gorgeous.

  2. Oh my goodness, it just reminded of my younger years. A part of me felt sad a bit after viewing all the photos. I never had the chance to read Hardy Boys before but I used to read Nancy Drew. The stories are somehow similar to the Hardy Boys. It’s all about mystery and investigation.
