Staying cool at the Expo Antique Show

 

Welcome to our booth at the Antique Expo Show in Portland!  In front are vintage postcards I have framed with copper foil and you can see some of the books with gorgeous covers.  Yesterday was quite challenging as the temperature flirted with 100 degrees and we worked hard to load all our goodies into our booth.

Royalty books have been a big hit in our booth.  We also have lots of charming vintage children’s books from England.

One of the crown jewels in our collection is this 1867 illustrated bible.  Imagine the hands that have turned the pages of this treasure.  We have several other vintage bibles too, as well as beautiful silverplate.

Another interesting collection in our booth is these vintage cameras.  I think they would make a fun summertime display. 

Some of our latest acquisition of books included books that were severely beat-up so we packaged them up to keep them safe from further damage and are selling them as TATTERED BEAUTIES for art projects, collage, and scrapbooking.

Jeanne, my friend and fellow ephemera lover, helped in the booth today.  She brought a suitcase of paper goodies and sold all of her vintage movie magazines first thing this morning!

Hopefully the rest of the weekend goes well.  It has been fun so far and a fabulous surprise to have my friend Sue in the booth right behind us!
