Kymberly Fraser of 3 Fine Grains
"One of a kind designs created from fine antique European grainsacks dating back nearly a century or more.
I met Kymberly at the Remnants of the Past Barn Show in Nipomo a few weeks ago. Her designs are amazing and very trendy in current home design. Pottery Barn is carrying modern versions of these antique textiles

The CALM Antique Show features wonderfully diverse Dealers with antiques, collectibles, fine art, jewelry and designers featuring American, European, English, Asian and Middle East collections. These Dealers travel from all over the State, The US and several from Europe

Fabulous French textiles

Lynn Russell's display was elegant and serene featuring framed antique drawings of estate landscape plans from Europe including Germany, France and England. A most unique design concept. Her show collection included stunning American coin sterling serve ware, dating back to Paul Revere.

The elegance of her design reminded me of Belgian Pearls, a Design Blog ( from Belgium by a Greet LeFevre, a Belgium Interior Decorator who along with her brother, runs a 4th generation family owned business of cabinet makers. Greet's blog features amazing Belgian and Swedish style design. Truly worth a look.

Stunning display of antique rugs and carpets from around the world

Exquisite jewelry designed with stunning antique clasps and findings by Jeana Hurst of

Jeana shares her gorgeously designed space with Rick Bastain and John Aragone of FFB Antiques.

Rick, John and Jeana have this same space (#2) each time they have come to the CALM Show. Charming, friendly and informative, they are located right next to a Dealer who carries the most fabulous transferware dishes along with an amazing collection of antique and vintage 'want to have' dishware and silver I have ever seen. As these two spaces are right by the front door, it is easy to spend all your time and money visiting these two spaces.

Be sure to save the date for the next show! January 29, 30 & 31, 2010
same place. A truly not to be missed event!
