Held May 27, 2017
at Christie Conservation Area,
Coverage by S. Neilly.
Enormous crowds flocked to the Christie Antique & Vintage Spring show on May 27th. Even when we arrived at 10:30 a.m. cars were still lined up on Highway 5 for miles each way to gain entrance. The weather cooperated for the event and there were masses of happy buyers lined up at the pick-up area to take home their purchases. Attendance reached about 9500 visitors, but it sure looked like more than that from our perspective. Thanks to the promoters for another exciting show with great offerings for everyone. Remember to mark your calendar for the fall show, Saturday, September 9, 2017. Visit www.christieshow.ca
The line up for the ATM machine pretty much explained how much buying was going on at the Christie Show – it was a very long wait for the machine
Looking for corbels? Well, we found some for you!

If you’re into restorations and/or renovations you have to check out the stock of Robert Lane Martin. Wow. Doors, windows, gingerbread, corbels, (see above) trim, mirrors – you name it, he probably has it. Gorgeous stuff. (And Travis was great to talk to!)

Great old advertising display items, and although we had permission to put the photo in the WT the vendor declined our offer to list his name and number. “They’ll be sold today.”he told us. (And they probably were!)
I recall an elderly lady at our church who always wore one of these poor critters in the early ‘60s. Although they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, I couldn’t help but notice the tag Sherryn Reddon put on them, espcially the “quiet pets” part. Somewhat bizarre, definitely vintage. Offered by Nodders, Codrington, ON
