August ~ A Busy Month Of Antique Shows And Family Visits

Holly Lane Antiques began August at the Little Compton Antiques Festival In Little Compton Rhode Island. This antiques show is held at the Sakonnet Vineyards and the combination of good wine and fine antiques proved to be a perfect match.

The preview party Friday evening happened during a torrential downpour. We were under a large tent. The rain on Friday brought a perfect clear and sunny Saturday for the antiques show in this charming area of Rhode Island.

Many of our favorite pieces found new homes that day including a White Ironstone President Shape pitcher, a gray Transferware pitcher and a Wedgwood pitcher with a hound handle. It was a day for pitchers!

The favorite part of my day was a visit by my almost 99 year old father who came by to see just what was it his daughter was doing most every weekend. Our daughter Amy made the visit possible.

Our perfect day ended with Dad and Amy enjoying Little Compton's annual fireworks display.
