A few more pictures from a recent antique show. I loved this sign…

Where did this sign come out of a hospital or a mental health facility? That is the interesting thing about antiques, they have a history that most of us can only guess at. I'm sure some people consider antique shoppers a little crazy, they are buying other people's old, used stuff after all. Not everyone understands the attraction of vintage items, they don't appreciate the worn edges and patina of them.

So many wonderful items here, I love the frameless mirrors. But it makes me wonder how someone's wedding photos ended up for sale. Did nobody remember who the bride and groom were?
These gages would look fun displayed in a bowl.
We all needed some rain this summer!
Italian Florentine boxes, plates and furniture seem to be all the rage. I could easily start collecting florentine boxes.
The turquoise chairs went home with a happy buyer. Can't you see these around a table?
I really wanted to take this mailbox home with me but I resisted.
When I went back to the vender that had the sign for disturbed women, it was gone. I hope it went home with a woman to be displayed in maybe her studio which is overflowing with antique ribbons, buttons, lace, vintage clothes, books and so many more vintage items. Wouldn't that be the perfect place for the sign?
