Tampa Bear Show review2013

Went down to Tampa on Saturday for Sundays bear show.

Of course I had to play! Went to flea market and to Madeira Beach where we had dinner on the wharf where these pelicans were hoping to get lucky hehe.
The show the next morning had people waiting outside the door eager to see what was inside.

My elephant got lots of attention which was nice.

This cutie,Rusty by artist Gail Griffiths, caught my attention. He's just full of spirit.

Martha Burch had these two steam punk pieces on her table and the one on the right was snapped up quickly!

While artist Nancy Dontigney had many of her Dog Patch Critters on hand I just love this guy, Kazoo.

My new 8" size bear.

Hope you enjoyed your small view into the show. Maybe you'll be able to be there next year.

Renningers Extravaganza

Yep, it's that time again! Mt. Dora is open to collectors as Renningers has its February Extravaganza this weekend, the 15th,16th & 17th.

Found yet another Three Bears book. Got there early, great parking. But some vendors forgot to put up their signs and I had to really look for my favorites lol!
Turns out finding them didn't always help either as they had sold whole lots of the very thing I needed. Steam punk findings are so popular and you can't get the old watch pieces anymore so it gets snatched up quickly.
I got good pieces in November, couldn't cover the whole show in January ( my bad luck as the vendor had a run on his stuff) and this month this is all I could find!

Boo hoo! Will not let this happen again! Oh well, onward.
Did find something I needed,

You will see this at a future show :) there are watch pieces in there along with a silver purse handle. Ah, still have some good fortune hehe.

These are wood buttons and will be showing up on new pieces in the works.

Will post pictures soon of the new piece created with the teaser from last months finds!
Good hunting and get to Mt. Dora if you can, Renningers had plenty of people going home happy and the weather was beautiful!
