  3. wow...I think you arrived a little earlier at the show than myself. Loved your pictures, I didn't see some of these wonderful things... I'm sure they were bought and in the trunks of cars before I arrived. I just love this show!

  4. Wow. What a fantastic show, Marjorie! Thanks for sharing these gorgeous photos with us. I want those spools of silk thread!

    My mother is an antiques show promoter here in Maine, and this weekend is one of her shows. It's always a family affair, with everyone pitching in. I hoping to have time to snap a few shots.

    Have a wonderful weekend! xo Gigi
