Oh my goodness, it is time to be looking toward spring and spring antique shows and opening flea markets and good outdoor auctions.
Yes, it is only February. But--all indications are that the nationwide collection of ground hogs have not seen their shadows and spring will be early this year. I am tired of the talk of sub zero temperatures and why ice melt salt does not work when it is so cold and seeing film of news reporters outside with lips frozen to their hand held microphones and hearing yet again that your hands will fall off in two minutes if not covered. ENOUGH ALREADY.
It is winter, People. Upper Midwest. Nature has cycles. This is a cold one. To those who scream (and it usually is screamed) CLIMATE CHANGE, I would like just one question answered. The temperature records we are now breaking from the 19th and early 20th century--what did people call those extreme temperature swings back then????
Here are a few pictures from our most recent Cedar Rapids Midwest Antiques and Art Show. Next Show is April 7. Well worth your time to attend this one day show.
So, for right now, keep those gloves on and get ready for a good vintage pickin' year!! Spring is in sight!!
