Paula found some cool retro stuff at the show.
I got several nice items for my sister who loves 50's stuff.
I got it for her for Christmas, but gave her part of it already.
There were craft booths and so much nice art to see.
The gallery was packed ceiling to floor with tomato art.
Must have been a huge job to get it all arranged.
Everything looked so nice. The art was so good.
Such a wide range of styles, some with humor but all with excellent talent.
The craft booths were filled with beautiful items that tempted me. This jewelry booth had some very nice items. Everybody was sporting there tomato wear. Paula made our "cool" visors and big tomato button with google eyes which we got a lot of comments on and several folks stopped us and wanted to know where we got our visors cause they wanted them. Last year the weather was in the hi 90's and the humidity was a drag. This year it was 80 and we had a breeze. The day was wonderful. There are several nice shops in the area with all kinds of unique finds. One had antique/collectible quilts which we looked at in depth. Paula knows more about the traditional quilting than me, so I learn something each time we're out. One shop had tons of 50's stuff, I've got to go back there, or should I...hum. Watch out wallet.
After tromping around and looking at arts/crafts one does work up a thirst. So we had a beer at one of the many nice restaurants in the area. Then we skipped over to another one I'd been wanting to try for lunch. It was seafood and great. We had a very nice day.
Thanks Steve for taking the photos.
