Just back from the California Antique Show in Los Altos
Here are some photos of dealers at the antique show. There were vendors from Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Texas and all over California. The best of the best in 18th and 19th Century American antiques (there were a few French things thrown in which made me very happy). There was a lot of Staffordshire pieces, too, and the architectural pieces were awesome - just beautiful, from early stone (not concrete) urns, outside architectural ornaments from Victorian homes - wonderful things that I eyed. I bought an architectural half round over-the-door piece for my home. I'll post a photo later when we unpack it.
There was a lot of buying going on, that I saw anyway. I was with a group of friends and every single one of us bought and there were a couple of people in our group that found some higher end treasures to buy. I hope the show was a good one so it will continue. So many shows are dwindling or closing.
