Crab Shack

Something about restaurant and retail design has been pulling me in lately. Inspiration can be found everywhere. It seems I'm still not over the recycled, chippy paint boards trend. The Crab Shack (New Zealand) by HBO+EMTB via the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards.

Ottawa Antique Show 

As I mentioned last week, this spring's Ottawa Antique Show was held this past weekend. I had participated last year by taking photos and going around tagging all of my favourite items ("Kim's picks") - see the post here. This year was quite different as my husband had a booth to sell his vintage radios that he guts and modernizes. The booth was so large I decided to lug a bunch of my retro/vintage goodies to sell as well. My husband sold some of his radios (YAY!) but I unfortunately managed only to sell a few of my things (I don't get it really - I had some pretty awesome West German pottery and not one of them sold! What's up with you Ottawans?!). Regardless, the show had a huge lineup on the first day and was really busy both days it ran. We had alot of fun and it was a really cool experience being on the other side of the table for a change. I took photos again, including some of the items I managed to buy before the show even opened! (I'm hopeless - I try and get rid of stuff, only to accumulate more!)

Our booth, and some of the pottery I brought back home with me. :(

Above are photos from one of my favourite sellers at the show - Samantha Howard Vintage. Samantha's modernist/brutalist jewelry collection gets me going every time, and I always have to pick up at least one piece, and Samantha, along with her husband Andrew have amazing retro and glass pieces as well. I also picked up something from one of the photos above. (Take a guess and you'll see at the end of the post if you are right).
