Have you ever had to sit on your photos because you just weren't sure how you felt about the event? I did with these photos from about a week ago... It's taken me that long to form a solid opinion of the Nashville Antique and Garden Show. I attended the event with Jake and my grandparents on Jan 31st and I have to say I don't think I'll buy a ticket to next year's event.
I'm definitely a picker, or junker if you will... and this event is very much for Nashville's wealthy citizens who have several thousand to spend on, well, anything. There were many beautiful pieces for sale, but if you're looking for a bargain I'd skip out on the show.
Second, when something is billed as two things, in this case and antique and garden show, I expect both to be equally represented. The three garden designs that were presented were grand. The tribute to Oscar de la Renta pictured above was absolutely stunning. But the lack of gardening vendors represented at the show was kinda sad.
All that being said, if there's nothing else interesting in town and you like looking at extravagantly priced antiques take a turn about the Antique and Garden show.
Now. Onto the photos!
Some of the vendors set up their space like a fancy room. I loved the wood panels. It was like stepping into a mini mansion.
Someday I will fill a room with leather bound books... someday...

It's a 'living room.' I love a good garden pun :)
So how did I do? I hope I wasn't too harsh in my opinion of the show, but it was after all my opinion. I try to keep it real for y'all. Not every event will be a knock out, you know? What events have you been to that turned out to be a bit of a dud? Leave me something to think about in the comments. Another post will be along shortly ;-)
