This past weekend I went to an outdoor antique fair called the Houston Urban Market. It consists of over 40 dealers from Houston and surrounding areas. Basically, its meant to be a place for antique dealers to come and sell some of their wares at "bargain" prices. I am not really convinced that they are bargain prices, but its still fun to go and look around. I don't even know how many people showed up...hundreds! By the way, if you plan on going be sure to wear comfortable shoes because you will walk a long distance just to park.
Love this very funky retro lamp. I tried to get the other Houston bloggers together, but was unable to. That's what I get for waiting so long to try and round everyone up. Maybe next time.
As I was scrolling through my pictures, I was reminded of my obsession with chairs. I mean, you would never know it but there were non-chair related items at the market. Actually, my favorite pieces were these amazing pillows. The patterns are embroidered by native people in Mexico...maybe that is why I like them so much.
P.S. I set up a Flickr account. I have more pictures of the market there.
