I mentioned the fair goes until 3:00PM, however the first I dealer
saw packing up was at 1:26PM. Most of the dealers get there way
waiting for carts
is the only show I know of that provides large steel
Home Depot type carts for customers to transport items
out of the show, plus a vehicle loading area you can
was a 1946 motorcycle
trophy 9 3/4" tall $200.00, that Daniel Lewbin had.
Then came a piece that I found very interesting. It was part of
the architecture of some government building, probably the
California capital in Sacramento. It had been turned into a
corner pedestal or something. It appeared to have been made of
some kind of plaster type composisition material, all painted
with gold leaf, with a big eagle in
the center. It was 42" tall by 37" wide, $700.00. see
below The dealer selling it was Dennis Perrow
of Main Street Gallery and Antiques, in Brimfield Mass.
Dennis said he was taking it to Brimfield next week. The July
2005 Brimfield show goes from July 5th to the 10th.
pedestal made from architectural molding offered by Dennis
Perrow of Main Gallery and Antiques, Brimfield Mass. 42" tall by 37" wide,
up, a nice looking Andy Warhol Campbell
Soup print, 21" Wide by 17" tall, framed, $40.00
. I don't know much about Andy Warhol works, but it looked nice.
And the frame was well done, and in nice condition. It would
probably run you $80.00 to frame that nice. It was offered
by Robert Padilla of Santa Clara Ca. Next booth over, David Beecroft of San
Francisco had a cool homemade old
wooden kids scooter, from the 1940's probably, for
up was another interesting sports display antique. A circa 1900
spelter rugby player 15 1/2: tall $285.00, running with the
ball. It was European, French probably. I know the piece, a buddy
has one. It would be good starter piece for a someone just
starting out collecting sports statues. It was offered by Benjamin
Bronston, of North San Juan Ca. see below

Wibberley of Nevada City had an early offset
printer he was asking $150 for. He also had an old very nice 1890's
wine opener, made by Champion,
for $150 also. Looked like a commercial one, probably used in a
bar or restaurant. Rick Dalton offered some very quirky and unique lights he
makes from old mixers
appliances. The mixer ones were $100.00, and most were in that
range. He has a website www.Not2Bright.com.
Charles Ruiz of San Francisco was selling a nice circa 1920 set of
made by Globe-Wernicke,
53 3/4" tall by 34" wide by 12" deep, email him at [email protected]
for the price quote. And last, Joann Ronning of Morro Bay Ca. was
selling a real nice original Victorian
couch, 37 1/2"
wide by 15" tall, $140.00. Joann said she had it recovered.
