I wore a black circle skirt that The Grandma wore back in the 50's. She also loaned us some of her fabulous vintage jewelry. She laments now over not having saved more of it, but you just can't save everything and I was so happy to wear what she did have. I'm painfully un-photogenic, I know, but I really liked my outfit and wanted to share it with you guys. The Bakelite bangles are mine, but the sparkly bracelet and black and white cameo earrings are The Grandmas.
Last year I stayed for all the discussions, but this year we just made sure to attend the fashion show. Here are the lovely ladies, gents and kiddos who modeled some pretty fun outfits for the event.
We walked around the booths multiple times just to make sure we saw everything. Check out this one! Swoon...I'll take one in each color please!
My Little Dude would love making me a nervous wreck on one of these things.
I need another globe like I need a hole in the head, but had this been priced a
little lot lower it would have totally been mine!
I just loved the way all of these radios looked together. Very space age-y. That's a real word isn't it?
Apparently I was too distracted with awesomeness to get any other pictures because that is all I have of the show. This is all I came home with. Damn crazy prices put a big kink in my buying plans! I wasn't the only one who noticed the high prices though. I didn't see as many sold signs and shopping bags as this year.
That sifter was more than it should have been, but I really liked it. It's something I'll use frequently plus it's pretty! Win win for me! That big ol' boy next to it is a 4 cup measuring Pyrex. I found one a while ago but dropped it so I was super happy to find another one. I have three sizes now and that pleases the OCD in me. The fabric is a vintage bark cloth from the 50's. I will be making some curtains for my kitchen window. And some pillows and maybe another set of curtains...I bought a lot of it!
I also got this great Bakelite ring. I've been wanting one for a while now, but buying Bakelite online makes me nervous and twitchy, so I was happy to find one at the show that was cute and in my budget.
