10 reasons why I continue to make the long trip down to Remnants of the Past Vintage Show...

#1 the setting...
I have a soft spot in my heart for this place - we raised our kids here in Nipomo, Califrnia, and we spent almost every Easter with Judi and Ed.

 #2 the vendor dinner the night before (hosted by Judi Powers and her husband Eddie)...

#3 Carol's pumpkins...

#4 the barn...

#5 the treasures...

Retreat Style by the fabulous Deb and Bob Kennedy

#6 the special guests...
Kriste and I chatting with Rachael Ashwell of Shabby Chic fame

lovely Rachael was there to sign books

she actually started the whole concept of Shabby Chic

#7 the shoppers....

#8 friends...
two of my dearest chums ~ Kriste Judd (best sales rep ever) and Judi Powers (owner of the property)

me, Daniella, Mona and Kriste

Megan Stiles (who just happens to be Judi's daughter AND my kids' very first babysitter) and the two lovely Judies.

#9 Judy Watkins...Wonder Woman of Remnants of the Past...

Rachael Ashwell and Judy ~ two brilliant, lovely women
And lastly....

#10 the SALES! OMG....we never had a lull the entire day. I won't divulge the details, but there were some jaw dropping numbers!
See you in the Spring! (April 30 to be precise!)


  1. We agree with all ten reasons!
    We'd add you and Dennis as reason #11... you are wonderful. And thank you SO much for including a photo of our RETREAT booth black & white vignette in your post, Pam!
