Expo Finds and Historic Autos

Last weekend brought the largest antique show along with the Portland Historic Races at Portland International Raceway.  I spent Saturday shopping the booths at Expo, picking up a range of wonderful finds…

First I got this fabulous matador and bull pin, a few patterns, this 1961 Holiday on Ice program, which I’m adding to my collection that I break out every Christmas, and then, last but certainly not least, these amazing covered wagon earrings. They really made my day!

Of course there are a few finds not pictured that will find their way to my Etsy store soon hopefully this weekend.  I would like to take this time to make note that I have been requested to sit on a Grand Jury, and this means that for the next 30 days I will only be making shipments on Saturdays. Please keep this in mind when making purchases.

On Sunday my dad and I enjoyed a sunny day at the races watching a wide array of vintage automobiles, everything from 60s Alfas to early 90s Stock Cars, race around Portland’s race track.

The Historic Races are a great opportunity to get an up-close look at a wide range of cars, European cars and American cars while also seeing them in action. If you’re in Portland next July, both events are well worth your time.
