It’s no secret that I have a bit of an addiction to vintage, antique and retro stuff. Beloved and I spent a fun day earlier this month looping around Eastern Ontario on a fun antiquing jaunt that I managed to document in photos here but never did get around to blogging.


You don’t have to spend hours in the car to find some really neat stuff, though. This weekend right here in Ottawa you can check out Antiquing at the Fieldhouse at Carleton University. From the presser:

The event features forty thousand square feet of fabulous. Designer handbags, garden décor items such as arbors, pedestals and seating, one-of-a-kind furnishings, decorator finds, Classic jewellery from names like Tiffany, Cartier, Van Cleef Arpels and Bvlgari, ultra cool Manhattan glass, silver accents, glowing walnut wood, vintage fashion, country quilts, Maritime art, tons of fashion jewellery, Persian carpets, art, cottage pine furniture, and much more.

It sounds like an eclectic collection — I can’t wait to go! If you’d like to go, here’s the show details:

Friday March 30 through Sunday April 1, 2012
Fri. 5-9, Sat. 10-5, Sun. 10-4
Location: The Fieldhouse at Carleton University, Bronson & Sunnyside, Ottawa
Admission is $8.00. Free re-admission. Under 18 free. Parking: Fri. $6 after 5pm, Sat/Sun $2/day

I am so excited to see this. I previously had nothing planned for this weekend. 🙂

I don’t antique around Ottawa but as soon as the family sets out on a road trip I stop at every road side antique place I can find. My favorite place is Dead Peoples Things in Bloomfield which is in Prince Edward County about 20-30 minutes from Sandbanks Provincial Park.
