Attending Antique Shows

Do You Attend Antique Shows?

This week, over 150 art and antique dealers will gather at London's Olympia International Fine Art and Antiques Fair to display around 30,000 items for sale. From ceramics created by Picasso to glassware to an actual slice of wedding cake from Prince Charles and Princess Diana's wedding, there's definitely a variety of good to be seen and scooped up at the fair.

Closer to home, the Brimfield Antique Show will be open for business next month from July 12-17. Friends of mine have walked away from Brimfield with some amazing finds, and I'm eager to make the trek myself some day. Tell me, do you attend antique shows? If so, what was your most amazing buy?

I just went to an antique show in Michigan last weekend. I found some great stuff! You can see everything I bought here: http://birdhousefamily.blogspot.com/2011/06/midland-antique-festival.html

At a local antique show last year, I found a ruler from the local department store that was THE place where everyone went to shop back in the day (think of it being the local version of Wal-Mart) - it was identical to a ruler I have that I've been using for *mumble* *mumble* years.
