June 1, 2009Mid-Century Shopping: The Midland Antiques Festival
Happy Monday, all! Whew, I spent most of this morning trying to figure out how to put a slideshow into my post. Man, learning a new skillset is hard. Anyway, I took a ton of pictures from the recent antique festival, and I wanted to jam them all in the same post and it seemed like the most efficient way.
If you want to see the Flickr descriptions that go with the photos, enlarge the slideshow with the arrow button in the bottom right corner and when it enlarges, click on “Show info” in the upper right-hand corner.
Anyway, the show was amazing. There is so much stuff here in Michigan! I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more mid-century modern at the show. There was a lot of Depression glass, Victorian and art deco, which I love to look at, but nothing really atomic. The good point about that was when we did see it, it usually was pretty cheap! I did stumble on some bargains, too. There was a both that had old cookbooks for 50 cents, a glass place that had 30% off everything, and one booth that had a ton of old patterns for cheap!
So, enjoy the slideshow. Tell me what you think. Do you want the individual photos, or do you like the slideshow? Hope you had a great weekend!
