Faire Play

{I'll take the chair, foot stool, lamp, side table & the little wooden owl - thank you!}
This morning, my coworker and I hit up the Sacramento Antique Faire, a monthly outdoor marketplace featuring a variety of collectibles from hundreds of Northern California dealers. I made a point of bringing only enough cash to cover the $3 entrance fee...as I've been on a spending bender as of late. Row after row of antiques and mid-century modern finds, I found myself envisioning the most covetable items taking their rightful place in my home. Still, without any money, I had no choice but to resist...until my coworker offered to lend me some cash! So, I ended up borrowing $13 so I could buy a 1946 Kodak Brownie Target Six-16 (pictured several photos below) to add to my collection of vintage cameras. Thanks, Lindsay!! Pay you back tomorrow.
