Of course the minute I found out that I will be at The Creative Connection Event's Handmade Market my mind started racing with display ideas. By trade I'm an interior designer so displaying small items like earrings and necklaces is challenging ~ entire room scapes come together more naturally. I knew I needed a statement display piece and Lucy will do the trick.
I found her via CraigsList, a resource I should use more often. She came from Haag's Antiques
in Columbus, Wisconsin. They are closing their shop so everything (yes, I said EVERYTHING!!) is 50% OFF through April 18. I also snatched up this group of goodness along with a gorgeous screen and old store rack for display.
I know I would have hauled home many more treasures had my littlest Love, Sophie, not been along to help. We stopped at McDonald's on the way home as a reward for her (relatively) good behavior. Phew - after all that excitement, I need a nap!
If you have some free time over the weekend I would suggest a trip to Columbus to find your treasure... enjoy the hunt!
