it was a long, long, long winter around here, but we made it through and we got to celebrate the arrival of summertime at the "Vintage With Flair" show this past weekend. and for once we were selling, not buying, hee hee!
the sun shone for the 2 days of vintage shopping fun in the charming tiny hamlet of Priddis, Alberta. it is the most beautiful, lush, country setting. the show and sale was a great success for all. g and i had 2 booths, one in the hall and one in the giant tent. we sold a ton of great junk and re connected with some old friends and customers. plus made a few new ones. here's a few photos of our stuff. if you would like to see more photos of the whole show check out "Vintage With Flair" FB page and their blog.
