I was lucky enough to spend the day last Saturday exploring the Round Top Antique Fair with my good friend Audrey and my new friend Lindsay (as in Living with Lindsay). We didn't go to the actual Round Top Antique Fair venues, because they charge you to enter there, but there are PLENTY of free places to check out great stuff along the way and in nearby Warrenton. I didn't end up buying too much, but it was great fun to check everything out and get some inspiration.
This entire tent was just amazing - all lamps made out of things like the fan above, manhole covers, musical instruments, old phones - absolutely incredible! They are made by a man from Alabama, and were just so cool - and expensive! I wish I would have gotten more photos of his work, but he looked at me a little funny when I took this picture....The fan would probably be the easiest to recreate
with a lamp kit and old fan, not so much welding!
Oh, what DID I buy - well I only spent $25! Here were my finds....
And Lindsay was the winner for finding the creepiest item of the day in the same place where I got the gym locker basket - and NONE of us got a picture of it! I'm not sure I can even come close to describing it, but it was framed with a cut out drawing of a sleeping baby's face and hand with what was obviously the baby's real satin pillowcase and blanket and....curls of REAL HAIR on the cut-out paper baby head....CREEPY! I'll definitely have to look for that little gem when we go back to the fall fair on October 1st!
