The Spring antique show in Portland was great fun. For the most part, parking, entry into the show, and vendors were great. There was however so much Easter stuff, some vintage, some not. The usual types of items I love to find at this show just weren’t there. Even my favorite vendors didn’t really have great stuff. Maybe the show is just more to my collecting style in July and October. I was really surprised that there were a couple vendors that simply refused to budge on their prices… they wouldn’t come down event a penny!! WOW! I just couldn’t bring myself to buy anything from their booth. I just don’t get it. Oh well, still I had a blast and ended up shipping home a big box of goodies!!
Here are a couple pics of some of the fun items and booths I saw. The ‘Boob Tube’ was a crowd pleaser. I was in a booth where the vendor said he made the boob tube and he takes it tall the shows he’s at and folks always go up to it to take a picture, he said he should start charging a $1 for each photo, ha!
