This hat is my husbands pride and joy. He is very particular about it. As you can see, it has been worn to perfection. He found it in a auction box he purchased over 15 years ago and has worn it ever since.
This is a side view of the famous hat. He has been offered big money for it many times but refuses to sell it.
The wooden model is of a Chris Craft Cabin Cruiser which was made in the 50's. By today's standards that makes it an antique. I believe the big posts were part of an antique bed. I didn't realize how many antique doors I also captured in this shot until I began choosing photos for this post..
This Civil War era love seat is part of a parlor set that we purchased or rather trade marbles for about 7 years ago. It is most definitely antique. We intended to restore the set but never got around to it. We brought it with us to sell at his show. The magazine racks that are under this seat are close to 50 years and are considered by some to also be antique.
3. Something I am Comfortable With
For years we have set up at outdoor shows and had to deal with the heat, the cold, the wind and the rain. We made the decision a little over a year ago to just do indoor shows. I am very comfortable with that decision, especially when it comes time to pack up. It seems that that 9 times out of 10 we would have to pack up in the rain when we set up outdoors.
4. Who is there?
Or should I say "Whoo... is there?" If the rat had asked that question before he opened the door he might have not found himself in such a position now.
5. A Door
There were plenty of doors at the antique show today, but I didn't want just any old door. This one was on the wall just behind my booth, but I didn't notice it until I heard someone say "This little door sure is cute." When I turned and saw it I knew it was the one. There were 3 guys standing around. "I need a man sized person to stand by this door for my picture. This young guy thought he fit the bill. I must say this door made him look like a big man.
This door was a lot of fun. The promoter of the Antique show set it up as a picture booth. I wanted to include it in my SHS post. No one wanted to be in my picture the first time I tried. I asked this guy a little later and he was happy to model for me. He even hammed it up a bit. Don't you think he looks like a celebrity? (In contrast to the previous photo, this guy correctly appears relatively short behind this full size door.)
