The Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market is back!

It's that time of the year again! The The Ottawa Antique & Vintage Show is back at The Fieldhouse at Carleton University this weekend and my husband (Daff Design) will have a booth there again this year for his vintage updated radios (he has sooooo many this time - and I love them all!) so I will be keeping him company, taking photos and shopping my little heart out! The show was pretty rad last year, and there are some new vendors this year that I am totally stoked to scope out. 

Here are just a few of the radios my husband will be selling there (all previously non-working - he guts them and puts in really good speakers, an amp and Bluetooth for a rocking sound)

Welcome to winter

After a long hot summer I love the promise of winter. Cozy, toasty, warm. Fresh, invigorating, just a little raw. And I'm loving the new winter range from Freedom. Three unique stories. New Nordic with its cheeky disrespect for dreary, short winter days. It's pastel, light and fresh. The Bowery is moody and industrial. New and old. The third is Native Terrain, a celebration of Australian flora and raw timber. Freedom's new winter range launches today and you can check out the catalogue with styling by Vanessa Coyler Tay here.

Happy space

Not only do I love this Danish style sideboard "The Iconic" by Kira & Kira but their styling of this shoot at David Bromley's Secret Garden Byron Bay pushes all my buttons. Might just be my new happy space.

Château de la Resle

Run away with me? France? A château? A mix of modern and traditional, history and innovative new design. Château de la Resle in Burgundy is a mélange of luxury retreat and design shop. Just the sort of holiday escape to inspire and revive.

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).
