It's a blustery, sunny, chilly day on Bellingham Bay . . . perfect for inspiring the creative juices! RUN, don't walk to the October 11th Sand Point Antiques & Design Market at Warren G. Magnuson Park in Seattle, Washington. Early buying is at 8:00 AM with show closing at 4:00 PM.
It's a dilemma trying to decide what to bring and what to leave behind . . . I have soooo many fabulous autumn/winter antiques. This old, black scale has the best ghost-like face!
Hands-down (or maybe up?), this is my favorite time of year! Black and white goodies, always suitable, have a special aura during the spooky season . . . heh, heh, heh!!!
A splendidly haunting, vintage beauty shop sign will make her debut . . . .
Orange you happy it's Halloween time? Maybe orange (considered a "healing" color) may not be the favorite of the vintage crowd--but mixed discriminatingly with shabby black and white, it gives a festive and happy feeling to a holiday room!
Never out of style . . . antique, giant baskets hold quilts, textiles & dried arrangements in timeless fashion. This one is from France, and it's one of my better finds!!
Vintage garbage can (ribbed for your viewing pleasure) is great for holding corn stalks. In the foreground is an antique, general store counter-top paper dispenser (with original rolls of paper!!).
A perennial favorite, no matter the season--antique dress forms (dressed in holiday reds). The healthy lass on the left is British (came across the pond) and her tiny friend on the right has an incredible figure!
To light the coming darkness: antique lanterns!!
There are many more goodies in store for you (actually packed in the trailer already): a fabulous, antique black & white organ-top (yes, talking about the musical instrument), a vintage, creamy yellow picket gate (just screaming for Five Little Pumpkins!), an antique black-painted buckboard seat . . . .
HAPPY HOWL-O-WEEN . . . can't wait to see you on Sunday!!!
