Jim's Expo Antique Show

Jim had another antique show this past weekend at the Expo center  in Portland. I helped him set up and take down his booth. He has developed quite a following for his "manly" booth and he has some really interesting customers...very knowledgeable and sharing. He took more art work this time and did well with it.

This is a print from AB Frost from 1911 that he had rematted and it's really a great print. I was glad this one didn't sell, as I have fallen in love with it. Great for November decorating!

LaVonne found him some Boy Scout items and he had a nice little section to offer. He wants me to put the items that he still has on Etsy, so I'll do that soon for him. I think he has some fun items.

His booth had a lot of wood and leather items along with some fly fishing, hunting and camping gear. Most was made in the USA which  seems to be quite appealing these days.

His next show will be in January after the holidays. It's a smaller one at the Clark County Fairgrounds in Washington, but he likes doing that one. He'll have a bit more time to "go shopping" before that sale.

Here's the happy dealer squeezed in with all his wares! He is a natural salesman. Well done Jimmy!

Kelly had her booth a few doors down. She the great gal we met last summer at the show. It was great to see her and her little boy Wilder...and her husband too. Sadly, I didn't get a photo of her this time. I hope you got to see the cute little Halloween item she gave me in my previous post.
It's November 1st and time to move on to Thanksgiving. I'm going to take a break from my quilt retreat work today to take down Halloween and put up Thanksgiving. It's chilly here in Oregon...time to get the woodstove fired up. Autumn continues!
