Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to attend Roses and Rust Vintage Market in nearby Anderson, CA and it….was….awesome! I had a friend come visit me from out of town to attend this event and we loved every minute of it. I’ve got pics to share with you!
My favorite booth is just inside the gate and belongs to Liz and Randy Foster. They are so kind and helpful and their booth is full of old ceiling tins and all kinds of wonderful items created from the ceiling tins and moldings. See?
Just looking at the pictures makes my mouth water. Amazing stuff!
Click here to see their Flikr account, which has oodles of great pics of their tins and some items that they have crafted with them. Dreamy!
My next stop was a booth that had tons of hardware for doors, cabinets and drawers. Lots and lots of bins to go through.
Yeah, my pics are a bit blurry, but you get the idea. The place was hopping with people and I had to snap pics as quickly as there was a break in the crowds.
I parked myself in front of a bin that had goodies priced 3 for $1. I sorted and searched and my hands got absolutely filthy, but just look and see what $10 bought!
This tub-turned-planter was pretty interesting. We surmised that it had a backrest, armrests and a place for the bather’s legs to hang out. Makes me love my garden tub (which I very rarely use) all the more.
We spent some time sampling some amazing jams and jellies. My favorite, oddly enough, was Horseradish Jam. Weird! I don’t usually even like horseradish. These were the jars that I took home:
This little sign cracked me up!
As we drove away, we started planning to attend Rust and Roses’ Spring show in April. And of course we will be back next Fall as well. If you happen to be in Northern California, I would totally recommend it. If not, you should at least check out the picture gallery on their website to see what you are missing.
Let me know if you plan to attend!
