The cloudy skies and chilly air of Seattle didn't stop our loyal customers from treating themselves to the recent SandPoint Antique & Design Market--hooray, no rain!!  Every sale was greatly appreciated, as we know spending choices are made carefully in this economy.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU wonderful customers who keep us percolating!!

Unfortunately, the somewhat dark interior of the building made photographs look pretty washed out, so just a few closeups.  There were more dealers this time with a wide variety of offerings . . . lots of treasures in the arms of happy customers.  Beautiful displays were provided by Bobbie (decorator's Christmas dream), Cheryl and Margaret (Christmas and primitives), Susan of Pink Lemonade (fabulous red leather chairs!), Dawn, JOHN/Bob vintage, Susan (from Portland!), Carol and Sharon (also Portland!),  Lionheart Antiques, Ageing Fancies (Kate and Tom), hand-made pillows with custom "button designs" by Peggy, Luluz display of bubble jewelry, primitives and lacy hand-made wreaths, Dennis Eros' HUGE collection of etchings and prints, other dealers of antiques, furniture, ethnic arts, rugs, Terry Krantz' jewelry, etc.  My sincerest apologies to those not mentioned--it was a busy day!
