March Expo

This weekend I went to the first Antique Expo of the year in Portland. I miss the days of finding great deals on loads and loads of clothing, but I did find some goodies, and had fun with my mom! 

I met lots of people I'd never seen before, and ran into friends like Janey and Julie and some expo regulars. Saturday I didn't find too much, most notably a 50s suede fringe jacket, and Sunday I went back and hunted for some bakelite spacers (those are the thin ones). About a year ago I saw a woman wearing only spacers stacked up her arm and loved the look of it, so I've been collecting those lately. 

I wore this outfit Sunday, and on my way out the door a women stopped me and showed me a beautiful VFW uniform she had been saving under the table when she saw me walk by earlier. She thought I might like it, and she was spot on!

You looked gorgeous Saturday! I was shocked to see you not on my computer screen, and complementing my hair (sorry I was the speechless girl with the black hair and bangs). I found loads of great dresses! Glad you found some goodies too.

Wow, some fantastic bargains. I can't wait till July when I'm finally coming to the US. There will be plenty of vintage shopping I think!

Fantastic treasures! I can't get enough of your amazing new Bakelite bracelets. It must be such a joy to be able to find so many in one spot on one day. That embroidered patch is so charming and fun, too - and of course the fringe jacket is killer!
