Here we are, back at the Lake Odessa Antique Show. I have to say my favorite display there was the booth of Mike and Jodie Roberts of Homer, Michigan. I used to admire their offerings of white wicker years ago when I used to shop the antiques show in Ann Arbor/Saline. Now they have a different look, because times and tastes have changed:
They generously allowed me to snap a bunch of pictures in their booth. Not every dealer is excited about photos being taken in their booths, I've discovered.
These wing chairs were covered in a burlap type fabric:
Lots of Italian Florentine items were on display, and priced very reasonably:
I'm asking Santa for this cupboard to store my crafting and shipping supplies:
I like just about everything they had for sale. Don't you?
They had something for all price ranges, from small architectural bits to large furniture pieces:
Gold is a recurring theme:
Anything with handpainted flowers will grab my attention:
I believe the fruit below is made from alabaster:
Apothecary bottles are still in demand. I sell quite a few of them too:
This metal sign was cool. Simple, but I liked the colors:
The metal pieces are curtain tiebacks:
One last view of the Roberts' booth:
The fire department sold lunch that was really delicious.
Barbecue pork sandwiches, lemonade, potato chips and homemade cookies for dessert:
Things got pretty hot after lunch, so we finished our last bit of shopping outside.
These prom dresses were on display inside a building. Aren't they beautiful?
We headed downtown to hit the Lake O Antique Mall, but got sidetracked by an estate sale:
By the time we finished shopping the estate sale, we decided to hit McDonald's for some beverages and head home. The Lake O Antiques Mall will have to wait until July, when I hope to return.
There will be two more Lake Odessa Antique Shows this year, on August 12 and September 9. Gates open at 8:00 a.m. Here's the Facebook link for more information.
I know I should be directing traffic towards the antique malls where I sell my own wares, but sometimes it's good to scratch someone else's back and hope they'll return the favor down the road.
