Metrolina in Charlotte

I travelled to the Metrolina International Collectibles & Antiques Show in Charlotte, NC last weekend.  These shows occur monthly throughout the year but the fall show is the largest.

Eddie was in town giving tours and he set a table with Mrs. Howard at her shop.

This place was huge and despite the enormity Eddie’s tour came right up to the booth where my Mom and I were shopping some well priced suzanis.

these are German, hand-painted shooting targets. Today they would make great art.

My Mom and I were taken by this hand drawn and colored piece of art but after reading the price tag three times we determined that it did in fact say $750-

this vendor said he’d take $100 for either these antique beds. The posts are really striking, they remind me of bowling pins and the side rails were very nice too. A real steal!

antique Fox Hunting print, the riders jackets were really more of a Hermes orange. I thought about this for a while but couldn’t place it in my space.

two vintage original etchings by a listed artist. The vendor wanted $120 for the one on the left and $100 for the one on the right. They both had Philadelphia Museum of Art stamps.
