End of Summer Antique Shows

August is winding down, and there are two antique shows I will be showing at before heading to France for Fall buying. The first one is this Sunday in Healdsburg, California. My booth is right on Healdsburg Ave, space A. No admission charge, and Healdsburg is a great town to wander around. Set-up starts at 5:30 am. Nice thing about Healdsburg is the dog gets to come. Sally is very friendly and always ready to say hello to shoppers. She loved attending the Nippomo Antique Show in April.

First Sunday in September is the 6th, and that means Alameda Point. Booth G-8. I get there at 5am, admission is at 6am, closes at 3pm.

We spent last weekend in Columbus, Ohio for a family wedding. Bride just opened her fourth restaurant. Her mom, (my cousin) did the decorating in all four spots with a combination of Ohio memorabilia, chalk ware, vintage lighting and textiles. Each place is unique. When you are in Columbus, make sure you try Betty's, Surly Girl Saloon, Tip Top, and Dirty Frank's Hot Dog Palace. Food is fresh, comforting, and innovative.

There is still some time to come along with me to France this Fall. I will be there through the end of October. Weather is great, cepes, foie gras, chestnuts and borreau are all in season. Anyone know what borreau is?
