I always try to bring a variety of items; there are more than just antique bottles at these shows. Advertising, saloon memorabilia, signs, western-related artifacts and ephemera are also very popular. I usually feature some costume jewelry bling for the ladies, too! This year, I’m bringing some of my more unusual graniteware pieces. Several pieces are in the extremely rare color of Chrysolite, a beautiful shade of teal green. Also, a couple early Manning Bowman teapots, circa 1890’s. I have a few graniteware pieces in shades of brown and white, as well.
The Chico Show and Sale is Friday, March 8, 10am-7pm for $5 admission. On Saturday, the show is free 9am-4pm. It’s a great show, and you never know what you’ll find! Check it out!
