...it's all about the baubles. Fabulous brooches, trinkets, little delights. This weekends antique fair was all about jewelry for my friend and I. We go everytime it's in town: March, July, October. We're hard core in our dedication and stamina. It's funny too, because every antique fair seems to have a theme for us in terms of what we find. Some times it's furniture or art or mirrors or clothes or lamps. We might come with a list of what we're searching for, but many times we don't stick to it, either because we become seduced by something else or we just can't find what we're looking for.
This time though, I did have a brooch on my list. In the spirit of the perfect uniform, accessories are key to the differentiation of each day's look. So I needed a great brooch and the universe definitely provided, and then some. Booth after booth we found yet another example fabulousness. We actually didn't get very far through the show yesterday because we got lost in all the tables of paste.
I bought 3 brooches yesterday (like I need 3)! But each one was sweeter and cheaper than the last. Which is key factor to small adventures in my mind. Maximum delight at a bargain. It's great to find something new that you love and get it. But for some reason, it's even better to find something you love and know that it didn't cost a fortune. On top of feeling sassy, you also get to feel a little bit smug.
