Something For Everyone...New Bern Antique Show 2013

Fancy Blue Ridge.
Each February the New Bern Preservation Foundation sponsors an Antique Show in the Civic Center---a beautiful venue for the show.  And for over ten years now, I have been a vendor at the Show.  It is always a lot of fun.  And sales are usually pretty good.  There is always something for everyone.  Here's some of those somethings from this year.

As I was unpacking one of my boxes during setup, I discovered a little hedgehog that I didn't remember having.  I was debating whether to sell it or keep it.  I love hedgehogs.  My friend Marcia came over, bought it, and then gave it to me for Valentine's.  That's called "having your cake and eating it too."  Marcia is a great friend.

Virginia, a vendor whose booth is across from mine, usually has something that I can't resist.  This year it is a lovely maple bowl with a hand-painted design that I bought for Dan as a Valentine's gift.

There's always lots of furniture.
Nice chest in one of the vendor's booth.
Usually some vintage toys.
Vintage baseball figures.
Pretty vases.

Can't you see how much fun this is?  I always look forward to this show where many of the vendors have become good friends and where there is always something for everyone.
