Sponsored by the Slidell Antique Association, the street fair attracted antique dealers from all over the South. They set up their wares under bright white tents. Everything from armoires to turntables, (which are now considered antiques) could be had at the event. There were even antique toys, dishes, jewelry and magnetic jewelry to be found.
Of course, if a shopper wanted something a bit newer, there were artists and craftsmen vending their creations from hematite magnetic jewelry to colorfully-painted birdhouses.
And let’s not forget the food. Food booths representing the best of Slidell’s restaurants were serving up delicious dishes, and for the kids, there was the ever-present popcorn and corn dogs.
If you missed the Slidell Antique Street Fair last weekend, do not despair. The event will be held again from Oct. 24-25 under the cool autumn skies.
