Antiquing and Friends

Yesterday our friends, Brad and Angel, took Aaron and me to the Antique’s fair in Clark County. We decided to make a little spectacle of ourselves in costume. We had a lovely time meandering up and down the aisles, digging for treasures, and having fun together. We had a number of people ask us about our costumes and who we were. There were a number of sweet older ladies were swooning over Aaron. One lady asked if she could take him home, it was quite entertaining.

I was amazed at how many booths there where and the sheer amount of trinkets and treasures. There were a number of over priced items and a few really good bargains if you were willing to dig. I ended up coming home with a darling little table for our bedroom and a hand painted minature pendant on a necklace. The pendant is probably Victorian, but it was very cute and has 18th century people on it, so I decided to get it.

After our Antiquing, we went to a local English pub, Horsebrass, and had dinner. While we were sipping on our Ales, a lady came over to inquire about our “unusual attire.” She was on vacation from England and was so excited to see us in Regency costume.

We had a wonderful day. Here are the pictures. God Bless!

My little table, I absolutely adore it. Now I need a cute 18th century style lamp to go with it :-)

What lovely finds you made! Unfortunatelly M. du Jard doesn't like to go to fleamarkets, so I have to go alone and that's only half the fun without any company.

I just have sent you an email, to your private and buisiness-adress, I hope you will get it this time :)

Yours
Cecilia
