Portland Expo was GREAT!

Portland Expo was gratifying in so many ways . . . lots of fun, good business,

great people, & continued percolating hope for a better economy!

It's always surprising what does (and especially does not) sell. These

gorgeous chandeliers are something I don't mind seeing

again and again--they make my space look like fantasy-land!

Found this great, vintage cemetary (closed??) sign at STARS!!

This couple is from the Portland Steampunk organization. I'm so frustrated that

I can't find

my notes for their names! You can see why I just HAD

to have a photo of them for you to see . . . great outfits, eh?!

Frenchie & Italian finds . . . still in my possession (I don't mind!!)

The best treasures of all: Debbie & Laurie of Worthy Goods!!

They were doing what I wanted to do: SHOPPING!!!

Another great couple . . . the "Roosevelts" . . . WOW!!!

THE BEST French zinc architectural salvage. Natalie snapped up the

galvanized pear basket from me (thank you, sweet girl!).

One of the funniest antique signs I've ever had . . . note the fireman's

name: "FRYAR"!!!!

Antique, French burlap "potash" bag . . . would make phenomenal pillow!!

The finest flow blue piece ever . . . hand-painted portrait on porcelain

charger (American Aesthetic Movement) C. 1910.

French gallery clock with mother-of-pearl inlay (going to live at my house for awhile).

My usual array of silverplate trays . . . the one in front has cherries on it!

I'm sorry to be so late in getting this blog update done, but I remained in

Portland longer than expected . . . and now I'm unpacking

and repacking for the Lynden Craft & Antique show, starting

this THURSDAY!!!!!

As always, thanks for looking--please leave comments so

I know you're out there!!!
