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.
