San Francisco Fall Antiques Show!

Monday, October 29, 2012

 Thanks to the generosity of my employer , I was invited to the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show at Fort Mason. The opening night party was particularly fun and had free-flowing champagne and food-stations galore. All set amidst the pretty antiques. Needless to say, no pictures were taken because my hands were full all evening (read: with champagne, or sparkling wine. Whatever, I'm not picky.)! When I went to a lecture on Friday, and had a chance to really look around (but no free champagne. Boo.), I took some photos... Above is the entrance. The theme was the Sea Worthy. Hence, the waves.

I mostly just took photos of things that caught my eye. Like this pretty rug.

And this painting. Of patterns. Swoon! 

Here is a close up. 

And another. Pretty!!

This was just a cool wall art, hanging, thing. I liked the shapes and the pattern they created.

I love this painting of whales/fish(?). Kind of abstract and graphic, no? Also, the Noah's Ark in front is pretty cute.

This display of different color spools of yarn was very cool. Maybe better in person. I like the idea, and I love spools of anything. 

Awesome wooden ship display. Also, very good adherence to the theme, which I am a big fan of.

And a close up.

Inlaid chest. I can't even imagine the time and patience it must take to make things like this...

And this! Gorgeous inlaid chest/jewelry box type thing. So cool. 

The detail. Amazing.

A bad photo of a cool painting. The colors in person were so rich and vibrant. 

I loved this abstract expressionist painting. There are many textile pattern ideas in here, I can feel it.


An antique footstool. And my feet, whoops!

Pretty coral! Interesting shape and texture. 

If you ever have the chance to go to the SF Fall Antiques Show, do it! There are a lot of interesting things to inspire, even if you can't afford a thing that is on display! It's still worth it to get to see some amazing antique pieces that you would never be able to see this close, anywhere else. $15 admission, free-flowing champagne, not included.

    I've always wanted to go to this!
