anyone else make it out to round top yet?
jeff, kevyn and i made a quick trip on sunday. it was chilly and muddy sunday morning so there wasn't much of a crowd. once the sun started to peak out through the clouds the traffic picked up.
we overheard some of the dealers talk about how business had been slow and on several occasions we had dealers offer to come down by 25% or more without even asking. of course i know their markup is quite a bit more than that, but still!
one of my favorite vendors sets up in warrenton and her booth is loaded with vintage school pieces. last spring we bought several things from her including four little chairs we plan on putting around a small table in the girls room. i think we've also purchased a vintage globe from her too.
i loved this old book cart. i just wasn't sure if it would work in the girls new room.
and how cool is that table?!?
we ended up coming home with this piece. the vendor was very eager to sell us something and i think we got a great deal. it is an eastlake piece that is expected to be from the late 1800's. we think it is neat and i have a few ideas on where to put it in our future home.
