Sacramento Antiques Faire

I went to the Sacramento Antiques and Collectibles Faire last Sunday. It was a fun day out even though it rained on and off all day. The booths are set up under a section of freeway so you aren't really out in the rain, but going from section to section we sometimes got wet. And I think there was a lower turnout because of the rain, but we had fun anyway.

Here are some cute andirons I saw.

And look at all these Toby cups!

This was our favorite booth. She had baskets, buckets, wine bottle racks, old benches, cafe furniture, and other interesting stuff from Europe.
I only bought a few Christmas ornaments and this platter, but I'm sure I will find my way back there sometime soon from Amongst The Oaks.

I LOVE those andirons! That looks like a fun time . . . I would love to have a show like that around here this time of year. :)

Love the old red platter. I think my sister in law collects that pattern ... Old British Castles by Johnson Brothers. Lovely website. Thanks for sharing all the pics!

I'm so glad you braved the rain and went. I was going to go and meet up with some other Northern Califonia bloggers but one was snowed in and the rest of us weren't sure how bad the weather would be. You look so cute all wrapped up and ready to shop!

Were there many dealers with threat of rain?
Hugs,

One of those Toby cups looks like the Lord of the Manor.
