It spoke to me – The Ottawa Antique Show Day 1 Recap

My new charm or necklace pendant

April 5, 2014 – It spoke to me! You walk down the aisle and in the distance spot that timeworn masterpiece. Your eye follows it until you arrive and get to hold it in your hands. It evokes imagination, resurfaces a childhood memory and triggers a flood of emotions, I gotta have it.

I was like a little kid in a candy store at the Ottawa Antique Show today. Aisles and aisles full of head turning, age-old gems. Bold Opera house seats, metal vintage coin purses, retro 50′s styled chairs, glorious glassware and similar showy items greeted me at every corner.

What stuck out in my mind? A striking linen chest at Conversation Pieces made of camphor wood that projected craftsmanship galore. In many asian cultures fragrant camphor has been used as a moth repellent and popular incense fragrance. Just a short walk away from this conversation piece…

Daff Designs reinvigorates the stylish vintage radio by making enhancements such as installing new speakers for optimum sound or adding a bangin bluetooth component. The Roland Pantina BlueTooth Radio and Vintage Montgomery Ward Airline Radio both caught my attention. Before you dance the night away…

Prepare what you wear! Feast your eyes on the knock out vintage apparel and glamorous adornment. Pair a pendant with a priceless black and white printed party dress. Like a moth to a flame (or clothing) I am sure you will be drawn to that one special treasure for me…

The pièce de résistance was this little token I took away from the day. The character and bird sold me at first sight. I will be back for Day 2 of the sale. Take in the sights tomorrow (Sun. April 6, 2014 10am-5pm) and find your own piece of nostalgia.
