aberfoyle spring special antique show 2012

This past weekend, I attended the Aberfoyle Spring Special Antique Show. This show always marks the kick off of antique season, here in Ontario. The dealers have been collecting vintage pieces all winter long, so there’s always lots to take in.

We arrived at 7:00am for early entry and made our way through the crowd. In addition to scoring lots of new (vintage) lamps for the Lamp Orphanage, we discovered a number of other fun finds.

Here are a few of my faves…



I was able to indulge my chair addiction with these iconic chrome pieces. I thought seriously about bringing some home to complete our dining set, but my man had to reel me in and remind me that we were there specifically on a lamp mission.


How cool is this wire magazine rack? It adds so much more sculptural interest to a room then a plain old basket.


These gigantic metal orbs had me at hello. They would make the perfect conversation pieces for your yard. Who says that art has to live indoors?


These original wood and metal sliding door hangers would bring so much history and character to your home. Plus, they’re right on trend with the sliding barn doors we’ve been seeing popping up in interiors.


If you live in the Hamilton, Golden Horseshoe, or Greater Toronto Area, you can visit Aberfoyle every weekend this summer. Pick up a seasons pass for only $25! Maybe I’ll see you there!
