It was a breezy, warm, sunny summer day in San Luis Obispo. The perfect weather for hunt'n junk. What a gorgeous setting for Judy Watkins' vintage show.
This is the ticket booth. So cute.
This years show was at the Madonna Inn Expo Center. Although I think we all miss the charm of the original barn site, the Expo Center offers more space, parking and amenities. I loved the fact that the aisles were wider and felt less crowded and since each vendor goes all out the make their booth the best it can be, it was so good to be able to see everything without having to pardon yourself for bumping into another shopper. That certainly made for a much more pleasant shopping experience.
This is the front of the center.
There was definitely a heavy French influence throughout the show
and many vendors were selling French grain sacks. Don't laugh but I spent most of my money on textiles. Oy
There was lots of hand made jewelry (bought some of that too)
and inspiring displays.
Are you curious about what I bought?
There were tons of tiny books and since Annette's been looking for some I picked up a few for her. The bracelet is for me. = )
Loved the patina on the old wire racks. You'll be seing them filled with kits and other wonderfulness at the Patch. I found an eight yard roll of 100 year old French grain sack material. I'll be share'n that.
I can't wait for the next Remnants of the Past show in November when our friend Susan Branch will be the special guest.
Thank you Judy for your vision and hard work in making Remnants of the Past such an outstanding show. I had a terrific time!
