High Noon



No this isn't  the Phoenix skyline but rather Mesa, Az............... of course here one city just flows into the next  like over in L.A.
The Marriott hotel hosts the  High noon gun show antique gun show every year.


You can find  many things here if your pocket book is really fat......


I did a little window shopping:)



Lid of a fancy box....


If only they were my size.....


"Remember Valentine's" was quite cleaver and only $200.00


How about this antique serving tray.


A quilt for your little Bronco....


If only I had a horse.....(a big strong horse to tote this)


A table top with tooled leather underneath...


Too cute!


Jewelry galore

and


Indian blankets


and little x-rated items too.


Notice they take credit cards:)


When I snapped this picture the man on the left said I could take it home with me and it would be much better than a picture:)
I told him it fit better in my camera........


Many things for sale and some for display only like the gun and knife that accompany my book.


 I could have sold this knife a hundred times over ..............

I spent most of my time in our room knitting a preemie baby blanket for charity and listening to a good audio book but there were some nice sights there too like this unusual desk lamp.....
 and  painting in the bathroom....



One of the highlights was dinner at the Landmark.




Had wanted to go there for a while and was treated by some friends.........It was excellent! A Mormon Church built in 1909 turned into a restaurant with great food and service.





 And it's back to real life and wash day:)

How far are from Mesa? I have always wanted to see it. THEY SURE DO have some wild, but pricey items. So much fun. sandie

Chatty, it is pretty much in the center of Mesa. Just click on the web site for the show and go to travel info. Will give all the information:)

Wow, I always enjoy tagging along on your trips. I bet the gun show and the restaurant have web sites if you would provide them or I could just Google them. Peace

Silly me you did link us to both. I was not paying attention. Duh.
