Colorful Vintage Finds

The Easter weekend started off nice with a visit to the International Collectibles & Antiques Show in Charlotte, North Carolina. The weather was beautiful, the vendors were excited and the rows were chock full of vintage items. The always popular and colorful lamps were on display along with Bakelite animal napkin rings, a tandem bike, vibrant glassware, an adorable camper and vintage kitchenware. I didn't purchase anything at the show (although those napkin rings were tempting), but overall it was an inspiring event for bright colors. Stay tuned because the weekend didn't stop there...more vintage finds coming up next!

How was your weekend - any exciting finds to share?

i love the bicycle and all the happy colors! the show looks like fun and i enjoy outdoor shows on a nice, sunny day so much. we've been doing the opposite of collecting, though. we've been organizing and donating and it feels GREAT! i did find an old paper cutter and pencil sharpener under the bed, so it was like shopping in our own place ;). enjoy your week!

Awesome, I looooove vintage lamps. Those lovely drum-shaped shades are harder to find than you might think, though! I am always on the lookout for them, since usually you can only find them sold with the lamp, and I want to use my vintage lamps, thank-you-very-much.

Oh my gosh, that set of glasses brings back memories - am sure my grandmother had one very similar. Fun - reminds me of summer afternoons in her backyard having an ice cream soda as a treat.
