Two weekends ago my best friend invited my mom and I to attend the Antique & Collectible Show at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. The show happens twice a year and features items from the 1800s to the 1970s. Growing up my mom was always antiquing and decorating our home. At one point she had a spot at an antique mall. I would help her decorate and price the items. It was a fun hobby that we both enjoyed.
The show itself was full of knickknacks and vintage jewelry (my fav!). I was certain that I wouldn’t buy much because I don’t have the space. I still managed to get in trouble with some amazing vintage baubles! A lot of the pieces that I purchased were from the 30s and 50s.
The vintage toys and books brought back some nostalgia for my childhood.
Another item that I purchased was this cute Fuzzy Wuzzy Bear book that reminded me of the children’s rhyme :
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
A bear was Fuzzy Wuzzy
But Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair
So he wasn’t fuzzy, was he?
Overall the show was good but came up short in the furniture department. My mom was hoping to spot some unique pieces but there was hardly any furniture at the event. I did get two recommendations from a vendor, one was for Farm & Frills antique show and The Farm Chicks Antique Show that takes place in Spokane, WA Saturday, June 6, 2015 & Sunday, June 7, 2015.
The Farm Chicks Antique show is described as a “bucket list” event with 300 curated spaces filled with antiques, vintage and shabby chic items. I hope I can attend the 2015 show. Check out this Farm Chick video from 2013.
Do you antique? Any recent hauls?
