Christie Antique Show

The Christie Antique Show is held twice a year in a provincial park in Flamborough Ontario. I was fortunate enough to go to both this year and both had amazing weather. Just a couple of pics from the day. Things that were on my list. There is so much to look at it takes us a few hours of good perusal.

lovely covered german grain sack chairs( still determined to do this myself one day)

Swiss ammunition baskets from the war. I stalked a woman carrying 1 to find out where she found it and to my delight a neat little row of them. 1 came home with me(pics to come of its new place)

many wonderful holders and baskets (above and below) Some people in my family seem to think I have a container obsession, especially with wicker. You just never know when you may need another I say.

regular grain sacks, lovely for pillow making(even though many people are giving into this mass produced trend and/or calling it quits with their grain sack love affair, I still think these real grainsacks have great charm)

still in love with this bakers rack *sigh*

Have a wonderful day

  1. I just purchased a antique bakers rack. I love, love mine. It was an excellent price (I white- lied to my husband the exact price). I have it in my mudroom for shoes/boots. It is just the right size. Long live,old stuff!


Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
