The Portland Expo!

This weekend is the Palmer-Wirfs Antique Show at the Portland Expo.  I went down there today for the Dealers Open to get first dibs on the goods, but considering I was 3 hours late, I guess you’d call it “sloppy seconds?”

Anyway!  The show was fully packed with dealers and LOADS of porcelain advertising signs.  Any guesses why?

As for corkscrews, I was able to score 2 lady legs (that I’ve been watching for 2 years now), a working turning head snifter, and a couple others.  Though Williamson’s seem to have endless types of advertisements on them, this one was for “Theo. Gier Wine Co. of Oakland, California”.  Kinda cool!
