I have to admit, however, that last week, I had a good time at the auction, which is close to having fun at work. We were there all day and actually go to buy most of what we wanted, including the wonderful cabinet pictured above that originally housed men's shirts in an Ohio department store. Love, love, loved it.
It was one of the first things to sell at Grayslake this weekend, going home with some dealer friends, where we know it will live a happy life. The weather was fabulous -- sunny, light breeze, low 80s -- and we were busy, busy all weekend. It was great to see so many outside dealers. Many thanks to all who came out to support the show, including Lee and Mandy, customers from Midland Arts and Antiques in Indianapolis, who drove up to Chicagoland to see us because they enjoy the blog. If you ever decide to do this, be sure to mention it, because we will be both thrilled and flattered, and therefore dying to give you our best price on anything your little heart desires!
Speaking of Indy, we will be headed to Midland on Saturday before driving to Burlington for Sunday's show. We will be back to the auction before then, unless we get a casting call for "As the Show Turns," the first prime-time series detailing the truth about antique dealers having fun at work. xo
