Yes, Sherry, it is quite the place! We only had time to walk through the South Building. Leaving we drove around the Garden Center. Never got to the North Building...saw the luxury bus making it's last run for the day. We got there around 2:00 ......it closes at 4:00 ....poor timing but it did give us an idea and a chance to feel the experience.
MC and the Dealer did some serious bargaining.......He was asking $5. MC offered $4! By the time the Dealer went through change for MC's $5 dollar bill, we paid $4.25....he was making up the last 25 cents with nickles and pennies! I certainly hope he had other sales today! He asked us a couple of times what we were going to do with it. We told him we would probably paint it gold and go from there... I have no idea where it will end up, but I have seen these little mirrors showing up in a lot of high end rooms!
By the time we got in the building, most of the Dealers were packing up and loading their trucks. We split up and decided to met an hour later.
I was so excited I found the white painted chair with the black cushions that I loved on Sherry's blog! Holly was so pleasant to talk to. She was packing up and will be back next month in a larger space.
Love her dress!!!
. Holly has done a great job refurbishing the piece. The fabric is a very fine linen. She said it will be featured in Oprah's magazine.......I sadly had to leave it.....$825 didn't fit this month's budget!
Love her card!
I call this the "White" booth. Even the dealers were in white
LOTS AND LOTS OF CHANDELIERS.................
This one reminds me of the one in our Master Bedroom.....but it was $575 and ours was $269 on line
Chairs.....Chairs and more........not to mention all the ottomans!
Oh MY NDI is so much nicer!!!!!! $164 I don't think so!
Met up with MC who had done his own searching. He found two gems.....
This is a picture of the ship his Grandfather sailed from Italy to America on!!! His father's father arrived on September 26, 1910 at Ellis Island
DUCA DELGI ABRUZZIWe really would have bought this, but it was $900!!!!
The other fantastic find of MC's
The top pennant depicts the games VPI (Va Tech) played against U Va. from 1899 until 1905. U Va. won all but the last one in 1905. Tech won 11-0. U Va. refused to play them again until 1923....Tech won that one 6-3!
This was $1200.....
Sadly we left, spending the original $4.25!!!!
This is a jewel
I bet it will be back next month
Wish I had thousands to spend!!!! But it was fun and we will go back! Thanks Sherry for bringing it to our attention.
