Sanford and Son

Tacoma Urban Sketchers meet for our 1st Saturday outing at an antique shop, Sanford and Son.  It was 3 floors packed with things to sketch and I was a bit on overload.  I walked all three floors and finally picked this old, curving staircase to a library balcony.

As is typical, I had about 45 minutes left.  I wandered a bit more and found this odd painted mannequin in the Vintage Record shop.

We gathered in the large, open bottom floor to share sketches and have our group photo.

Then I went on to see Chandler O’Leary at a craft fair in King’s Books.  It was fun to catch up with her…. I first met her at a Seattle USk outing in Edmonds.   I really enjoy her sketchbook blog, Drawn the Road Again!

She had so many of her great prints there

    We do have similar eyes/preferences. When I finally made it downstairs I saw the bookcase and thought… I gotta come back. You did a great job with this! I took a picture of the book case and of the record manikin lady- loved it!
