So, when my dear friend Sara suggested I meet up with her and my other dear friend Sarah (try not to be confused by the name similarity) to do some "antiquing" I don't think I was suuuper excited. But I was super excited to see them and I am usually up for doing pretty much anything, so I gladly agreed. Sara suggested we check out antique malls in Puyallup.
The Sara(h)s both own their homes and are much better than me at putting old things to good, modern uses, and heart antiques. So, it is amusing that I was the one who alerted them to a HUGE ANTIQUE SHOW happening that very same weekend at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. It features more than (gulp) 425 booths!
With the antique show as our new destination, we met at the fairgrounds in the morning this past Saturday. There were as many antique people as there were objects. On average I guess antiquing isn't so much a young person's hobby. I was very overwhelmed by the large number of booths and people. Somewhat thankfully 95% of the booths didn't accept credit cards and that's all I had to pay with.
I spotted a few pretty crazy awesome antiques and I asked Sara to take photos of them.
|I really feel like these two statues should |
be sold as a set.
|Yep, that's Ronald Reagan as a teapot. |
His nose is the spout.
|Oh, man. This is pretty horrifying. |
Who wouldn't want a spinal cord lamp
in their living room??
Even though I didn't buy anything it was definitely an experience and a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
