West Palm Beach Antique Festival Pix

Good morning everyone :) I hope you all enjoyed your Mothers Day weekend. I sure did!  We got back last night around 9pm, the drive of about 3 hours was SO worth it! I had the BEST time ever.

Without further delay.. here's the pics I took of the Festival:

Most of the Festival was inside (which I thought was a bit odd, considering I'm so used to Renningers being outside) but, nevertheless.. it was a great show!

There were about 20 tables/booths set up outside.

So, I would shop a little outside, then go back inside to cool off ;)
It really wasn't that hot out, we got there when the doors opened at 9am.
In the morning it was a really pleasant 75 or so. The day ended up sooo gorgeous outside, just perfect at around 85 with a nice warm ocean breeze... just perfect to end our day at an outside bar for a dinner and a couple Coronas!!

LOADS of really neat unique things for sale...

Remember these "Bug zappers", Magnifying glasses.. hehehe

Not much furniture, though... only 1 or 2 booths had some chairs, a dresser and a couple of other things..

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this window.. I asked the guy selling it.. "Is it really from Paris?" and, "How much are you asking?" His reply was, "I'm not really sure." And, the asking price of $275 I passed. Silly man. LOL  The printing on the window itself wasn't scratched or chipped at all, so I highly doubt it was even an antique.. not to mention - looks like something I could replicate on my own for ALOT less!!

Beautiful linens..

What a cool wagon!!!

An entire booth of crystal chandys...

And, I came home with some gorgeous ironstone!
My favorite!!

After the Festival, we decided to drive along the ocean to get back to our hotel.. boy o boy, am I glad we went that way!! West Palm Beach has thrift store after thrift store after thrift store!!! I can't wait to go back, and wish I lived closer!!

What I took home from the thrift stores:

Beautiful cabbage and roses looking fabric.
Can't wait to sew something fantastic from this!!

Birdie hooks.. (Love sweet lill birdies)

A couple of wooden trays.. begging to be painted white!

A queen sized antique duvet cover...

Not one stain or hole!!

And, lastly.. this HUGE awesome mirror for only $20!!

Yesterday was our last day, we stayed in Delray Beach..
Beautiful blue skies and 85 or so degrees out.

We spent the entire day at the beach yesterday!

What a perfect Mothers Day gift... all thanx to Mr. Ruffles.
I love him SOOO much!!! :)
