Hello there! Saturday Bob and I went to an antique show in Allentown, about an hour away from us. We got there a little after 9:00 a.m. There was a good amount of people there already, and walking up and down the narrow aisles was annoying with slow people who were blocking the walkways. But, otherwise we had a good time, and I got a couple of goodies. I was glad I didn't find a lot of things that I HAD to have, because I didn't want to spend too much money. I got a fruit bottle brush tree and a plastic Santa that lights up.
Antique bottle brush trees are my favorite Christmas decorations to collect. The vendor I bought the tree from remembered me from two other shows I was at, and both other shows I bought something from her. She's one of my favorite vendors. She always has great bottle brush trees! She said she'll be at the Oldwick show in a month, and I can't wait for that show! It's also only 2o minutes from us, so that's a big plus.
After the show we went to the nearby mall, about ten minutes away. We went in a couple of shops, and had lunch at the German restaurant there. Bob loves German food, but I'm not such a fan of most of it, ha. I'm not a meat & potatoes girl. I got a tuna fish wrap, which was pretty good. I went in Hot Topic to see if they had the Lisa Frank sweatshirt that I had seen online, and they did have it, and in my size! I snagged it, and I love it. It's so colorful, and so me! It's probably not surprising that I was pretty obsessed with Lisa Frank for years when I was growing up. My favorite of her designs were the unicorns, and this sweatshirt has one of the unicorns on it.
I got a lot of compliments on my outfit on Saturday, and I only noticed one other woman there wearing a dress. One woman who was shopping at the show, remembered me from a year ago, when I went to the same show last year. I suppose I do have a memorable look!
In the pictures below I'm wearing the outfit I wore on Saturday. I also wore my Fontaine coat, pictured below. I LOVE that coat, even though it's hard to move my upper arms in it as it's tight up there, and also the fabric on the top two buttons had come up, and I hot glued them back on, but as you can see, the one button lost its fabric again. Otherwise, I love the vintage 40's look of the coat.
I almost always wear this dress when I go antiquing. I do love my themes, that's for sure!
I feel like wearing this dress while antiquing will bring me antiquing luck, ha.
