Yesterday I went to the Del Mar Antique show with my friend Jerilyn. We both enjoyed seeing our favorite dealers, Peggy McFarland from Utah, with her fantastic display of Victorian napkin rings and unusual cast iron doorstops; Audrey Hancock, Homestead Antiques in St. Charles, Idaho, exhibiting hard-to-find Americana and early advertising pieces (you can see her at Marburger Farm in Roundtop Texas March 29-Aprl 2). It was nice to see TC Leary with her fabulous estate jewelry. San Carlos Street Antiques from San Jose didn't disappoint with their booth of treasures. There were some outstanding dealers with heirloom sterling. I saw a set of early Tiffany flatware that was astoundingly beautiful. I was very impressed with the amount of early coin silver pieces, too. The repair booths are something that is a huge draw because there is no one in San Diego that repairs pottery, porcelain or china. I enjoyed talking to Josette from Las Vegas. I've been to her store on East Charleston many times. She does restoration of porcelain, china and pottery. My cat, Sweetpea, broke an 19 Century Staffordshire spill vase which I'm going to give to Josette to repair. I was very happy to see her at the show.
