Hubby and I along with Kayla went to the Antique show at the UNI Dome a bit ago. I had snapped some pictures but after feeling a little disappointed about the show I decided maybe I wouldn’t blog about it. Then a couple past blog posts showed up in my feed and I decided to write about it.
There were a few things that were fun to see…I love Swedish Dala Horses…
…and I love odds and ends…
This little blue sewing machine was cute.
But what I don’t like is this….Don’t get me wrong. I love spool cabinets and really want one..but this vendor is in the same spot. There spool cabinets are still the same outrageous price. Most of these were near or above $1000. Yes, they are in beautiful shape but I don’t know anyone who will buy them for that price.
It’s really not fun to look if prices are sky high and if we see the same thing year after year….Case in point. I snapped this picture of a quilt. I loved the look. Simple. I have also been on a kick of quilts with no light backgrounds…yet something seemed familiar about the quilt to me.
I got home and looked to see why…This picture was take the year before at the same show. Notice the same quilt! If a vendor can’t sell a quilt in a year of going to shows, it’s time to lower the price…right??
I saw other quilts I liked…but again they felt familiar.
I know I saw this one both years. I remember because I thought it a unique idea to use strips cut on the bias and applique them to made a quilt block.
There’s always one quilt booth that has all quilts across the background. These were all different quilts from the previous year.
All in all, we were a little disappointed and likely won’t be back to the show anytime soon. We don’t need to pay $8 to get in just to see the same things year after year that are frankly a little too high priced.
At this point in our lives, I think we’d rather just go to auctions.
