Gift Show #2

I was going to wait to show this post but then it dawned on me that it was Sunday tomorrow.
Oh right!!! Silver Sunday.
These pictures just happen to have a whole bunch of silver....
the glittery kind, not the sterling silver kind!
I had the pictures already loaded.
This is the continuation of our buying trip at the NY gift show.
This is the more nautical section of this booth
with soft blues and of course shells.

I was so thrilled to find out that someone else had licensed
Nicol Sayre
 and were doing a better job with it and at a better price.

Ok no silver here but who doesn't like ribbon?

This was a unique ribbon...burlap with bells either in rust or left naturally shiny. I ordered that
.  The ribbon photographer next to it was so bright red and green
 I needed to make this a black and white picture.
 The red and green felted ribbon
 was a big hit in Atlanta from what the rep. told me but I didn't like it.
 I heard that the whole time I was there.
"It sold great in Atlanta"
Yes, but does that mean it'll sell in conservative New England???

Not always!
I adored these little mannequins.
I got those too.

Now this stopped me in my tracks! Look at these can lights. So cute!
Would even look better rusty!
and this fridge!!!

Ok PINK and BLACK maybe not be your thing but
I thought it was adoreable.
Would I do it in my home?
 No! but it was fun to see the originality of this line.


Now run to see the other participants of Silver Sunday
with our hostess Beth of Gypsy Fish Journals
I'll be off tomorrow shopping at the antique show in Naugatuck,Ct.
at the Naugatuck High School.

Debra of Capers of the Vintage Vixens will be there.
If your in the area stop by!!!

Hi Carole! Love those mannnequins! I was thinking of getting my daughter one this past Christmas.. I couldn't find one anywhere :( I'm keeping my eye out for next year! Beautiful photos!

Are you guys getting lots of Snow? We've had a little blizzard on the Chesapeake Bay! It's so Beautiful! I'm loving it!!

Hope you are having a Great Weekend!

Big Hugs ~ Teresa

slommler said...

The photos are wonderful! I like the mannequins too! And those can lights...super!!

Denise said...

You're killing me here! You need to sell online. I'll take one of everything. I always loved Nicole Sayre and wondered what Midwest had done with her line. By the way, I love your new banner. Gorgeous.

The French Bear said...

I agree, I need you to sell on line!!!! I must have those Santas, and the Nicole Sayre line!!! Please let me just give you my list and start making deposits!!!! Ha ha, I love the white and silver together. How fabulous was it to go to the NY fair? You are so lucky!!!

Wow, the photos are gorgeous. They really bring out the need to do something creative.....I know what is on my agenda for Sunday now.

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Oh Carole, Here I go again, drooling that is. Yummy, yummy, yummy!!! Thank you for taking us to the show again!
Have fun at the antique show!

BellaRosa said...

Carole amor, first of all...I LOVE your beautiful new banner! Thank you for sharing so much of all the lovelies you got to see! I love Nicole Sayre, her creations are gorgeous! And those dress forms...ugh....please sell online :) or I better find a way to come visit your store and plan for my return trip with a full trunk of things :) I think that might just send Chris over the edge...poor man...but think how happy I would be with all my pretties :)I can't wait to see pictures of the things that you ordered in your own store, you have a beautiful way of displaying and showcasing things! Besos, Rose

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Fabulous Carole
I feel like I'm taking the tour of the gift show with your!! I love the blue and silvery christmas themes at the top... of course anything sea themed will always catch my attention and the mannequins and their brooches are really sweet too!!

The tin can lamps looks like a very Australian thing to do!! hahaha.. it the sort of thing you see here quite often.. I guess it speaks to our slightly offbeat and irreverent nature ... and you're right.. they would look better rusty.. love the fridge too, but the girl in the photo doesn't look so pleased about it!! You know I don't think we are allowed to take photos at our gift fairs.. I'll have to check it out.. I am SO pleased you did... these are great and I'm really looking forward to more..

Take care and have fun at the antique show .. you'll be all shopped out!! Is that possible? haha xxx Julie

Julie@beingRUBY said...

me again!!!! Love your new banner... it's brilliant!! and kitty kat is along for the ride!! I haven't done my Silver Sunday yet.. things have been hectic... xx Julie

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Carole,

Love the new blog header, all looks so beautiful especially dear kitty.
Thank you for taking us to see more of the gift show. How amazing it must have been to go there ~ love the mannequins and the burlap ribbon with bells.
Have a wonderful week

Jacqueline said...

More wonderful photographs of the Fair, Carole,
Like everyone else, I L-O-V-E those mannequins...they seem to be very popular. I bet the woman selling them did a roaring trade. I like the LOVE, PEACE and HOPE. Are they brooches as well ? Whatever they are, I like them !!!! ..... and the ribbon with the bells. I'd have some with rusty bells and some with silver !!
I'm sure that, what we've seen so far, is just the tip of the iceberg. I think that it woiuld take me about a month to see everything. I'd still be looking at the first stall!!
Have a lovely Sunday at the Anyique Show, and, don't buy too much. Remember, you've got to find somewhere to put it all !! XXXX

trash talk said...

"Trash Talk"...really? Love the burlap ribbon and I also am a huge of N.S.

Susie~From My Home To Yours said...

Well Carole...looks like you had a grand time iin NY. I used to buy in Atlanta years back when I had my own business. I miss the excitement of finding those special and unique new items. Thanks for sharing and bring back some great memories!

Well I agree that you should consider adding an online shop to your blog! I think you would do very well!

Have fun antiquing today..

Susie~From My Home To Yours said...

Whoa, I just reread my post...sorry for all typos...I really can spell!

Debra@Common Ground said...

Carole, I agree, you need to sell on-line. I want one of everything and don't have access to all these great things! the little angels with the candles, oh my gosh, so adorable. Love all your photos.

Mermaid Queen said...

Love all you picked out Carole! You have great taste. And I agree, those can lights would look better rusty.
Take care,

oldgreymare said...

Be still my Heart! Nicole Sayre BACK? Oh my! If you check my archives at Christmas and go to the porch pics.... It is homage to Nicole! Carole, come the Holidays, we'll talk, since barely anyone was carrying her here even when she was still available. Hope there are scads more photos. I am loving it!

erin said...

Cheryl~ZanyMayd said...

Loved Your Photo Shoot ~ All the Glimmer & Shine,
I really loved the Christmas items, had to remind myself, we just finished Christmas, I have to wait forever again {can you tell it IS My Favorite Time of Year}
Have a Wonderful Week, Thanks for Sharing the Great Photos

Rebecca said...

Hi Carole
Love your new banner! Did your new computer do that for you :) I need one but I need software! I haven't downloaded anything into my new one yet. Love the ribbon too!

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Hi Carole:
I really like the little dress forms - even tho they're not silver! ;-) Hope you'll stop over and enter my two drawings if you haven't already.

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

Beautiful pictures Carole. I love those burlap busts, and that burlap ribbon too, and I don't even own anything burlap (yet). I think those can lights would work great on a string on the patio too. I've used old cans to make lots of things, but this is a unique idea.

Sonia said...

Wow, your pictures are awesome...really beautiful! I love the Santa's and the glittery houses too!

Anne at Fiona and Twig said...

Oooo, take me with you next time you go!!!
Such fun!


Collected Treasures said...

Everything is so wonderful, but I would get lost in the ribbons....oh my.....I love it! xojana

Fancy Fodder said...

Love these pictures, Carole!
...And those! You're right, they would look good rusty. I probably would have expected to see a great big frosted pink cake in that awesome fridge, too :+D
Many moons ago I had a fridge like was small, and so worn, you could see the aluminum through the paint, and the door was so heavy. Back then I didn't like it.
Crazy, huh?
Enjoy your break ~

Fancy Fodder said...

Love the new banner!

Bleudelavande said...

All it's great!!! It looks you had a wonderful time in NY!!!!
Have a nice week my friend

Dee@FrenchBleuVintage said...

Again, jealousy reigns. Great stuff ~ too much to take in all at once ~ its like glitter overload ~ I would have been hyperventilating into my glittered paperbag! I need to take a trip to Old Saybrook and pop into your shop soon to say "hi". I hope the Anique Show was great. I wanted to go but had a houseful of football crazies to entertain.

Gypsy Fish said...

Loooove me some burlap...looks like a blast. Did you get to ABC home in NYC if you can you've got to go...4 floors of heaven and amazing displays! Thanks for playing along...See you next Sunday for season 2 and the SS giveaway reveal.
