Christie Antiques Show

by - Thursday, May 27, 2010

If you live in southern Ontario, you best head over to the Christie Antiques Show this Saturday. It is THE best antiques show around these parts (Sarah Richardson and many other HGTV personalities have been spotted there) and I wouldn't miss it. So even though HandyMan can't make it, I'll be leaving the baby at grandma's and heading there on my own with a wishlist of items I hope to find like:

Vintage eduational posters

Globes and maps

Old children’s books for framing

Grace Happens

Milk glass or depression glass cake plates

Fishs Eddy

and more old photos (like this one we picked up at the fair last year)

Anything else I should keep my eyes peeled for? What's on your antique wish list?

Toronto bloggers & readers: If you're headed to Christie too, do say hi if you spot me in the crowd :) I'd love to meet you in person (and see what goodies you've picked up!)


A few more days left to enter the book giveaway. Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win!

  14. I so wanted to go but my sister's family from NYC was driving in the day before and I didn't think I could convince my 3 year old niece that going for ANOTHER drive was really what she would want to do after being stuck in the car for 11 hours :( Oh well, there's always September and next May, right? Hope you found some great finds...I'm sure you did!
