Recap of the Music Valley Antiques Show

Hello! How are you?
I have been a wee bit of a blog slacker lately.  
I finished another book.  And I really can only ignore and neglect my family in so many ways!
I thought I would show you some of the photos from the Music Valley Antiques Show.
You know, the one where poor me came home empty handed.
There were tons of great items, especially signs, but they were just out of our price range.
Lots of eye candy though...

Like this train schedule board.... I think I may try to make one of these for my little train lover... with chalkboard paint.

There were also a lot of carnival type items, like this old game.

We were really drawn to all the signs... there were so many great ones!

I love this display of catcher's masks.  Power in numbers!

Of course I adored this vintage dress form.

This was one of my very favorite signs... I loved it!  It really deserved to go home with me!

I also really loved this rack... I would love to tear out our pantry and put all our food on this... of course then I would have to only buy things in pretty packaging...

Now, I don't like to talk $$$$ very much, but to just give you an idea of why we didn't take anything home...
this little sign... probably an 8x 14.... well, my dears, it was $695.
Yep.  I didn't forget a decimal after that 9 either.
I am sure it is a very famous sign.

Mr. Hughes oohhed and ahhed over these big barrels... he wanted to use them as rain barrels for our garden.

And we both loved this double birdcage.

So I am going to get my act together and actually post this week.... maybe a few furniture pieces and I have missed doing my Friday's Favorites the past couple of weeks.

bye for now!!


  1. Ouch on the prices but WOW on the great signs, masks... to look at. Part of the pleasure when treasure hunting, the looking.
    - Joy

  2. I am glad to hear that the prices were high. I was planning on coming, and then was not able to make it. So, it makes me feel better about not being there.

  3. Wow, that train schedule board is INCREDIBLE! That's an absolute must for your little train lover. I love it.

    I want to know what books you've been reading that have you so enamored :)

  4. That Train Schedule is adorable!! Hudson would love that too!

    See, this is why I can't just go browsing around antique shows. I can't stand it when I can't buy. I have no will power. I'd probably buy that sign and eat ramen noodles for the rest of the month! :)

  5. $695 - No Way! Even if I could afford it, I have to much common sense.
    I am aware there is a lot of "money" in that area, but good grief.
    Oooops! I'm tucking my head and backing out of the room now. :-D
    Enjoy your evening.

  6. That train sign is adorable - I can't wait to see what you come up with if you decide to DIY!

  7. Michelle,

    I collect antique signs. These are all great finds but the one from the train station is amazing!

    Your Friend,

  8. oh my word the prices where crazy HIGH!!! gosh i'm always bummed when there are such amazing items but not the right price!
    wishing you a wonderful day!!!

  9. Mr. Hughes here. Just so we aren't sounding like bashers there were some good prices to be found in some of the booths. The antique dress form for instance was $280.00 that's not bad at all. We also found a couple of booths with some great metal baskets that were about $35.00 which isn't bad. I think this show was more for decorators and designers and the folks that they design for can afford these things. If you can afford to have a designer do your house, you can afford to pay $695 for a PEACHES sign I guess. For folks in our price range it was still worth going for inspiration.

  10. Some great items for sure, love the birdcage soo sweet!!! Thanks for sharing, now show us your pieces, I wanna see!! :)
