Camas Antique Street Faire

The day on Saturday at the Camas Street Faire was fun and like a mini reunion seeing so many of my customers from The Purple Pear as well as friends. It was so well attended and everyone had fun.
I sold a set of Eastlake chairs as well as the two-tiered table that I had painted and stenciled.
Mary and Kathleen had a space next to me and Kathleen painted this piece in Chalk Paint™ decorative paint with the colors Paloma underneath and CoCo on top. Then she used a glaze of Annie's dark wax and mineral spirits with some gold metallic wax mixed in. It was stunning and sold very quickly!
Toward the end of the show I was getting a bit silly and placed a crochet tea cozy on top of my head while Sara Bickler of The Cup Bearer, a fun new shop in Camas, took the photo telling me that I better post this. So here it is!
By 6:00 AM the next morning I was on a flight to St Louis to meet my husband and help him drive home to Portland. At last he is coming home to stay after being gone for over a year working on the east coast. How fun it is to be on another journey with him again!
