Antique show with mad men style competition

 





 



 

I went the Almeda point vintage show with Mary
We found many goodies (Ive already posted quite few already)
And of course took pictures of their Mad Men competition

It was pretty cute because 
they set up a little lounge and desk area
for photos

The couple on the far right won, and received all the seasons of mad men
..Mary and I won free tickets to the next Alemda antique fair!!

I tried a combination of Rachel's hat and Joan's dress below
