IF YOU REALLY LOVE IT, YOU’LL FIND A WAY TO USE IT!  
Decorating With Yard Sale Finds and Family Mementos
An Interview With Patricia Yokom, Co-Chairperson of
the 7th Annual Antique Show & Sale at the Dixon May Fair   
               

“If you see something you just love, its best to buy it ‘cause’ in an antique store it won’t hang around . . . if you really love it,
you’ll find a way to use it!”, says Patricia Yokom of Dixon, California.  Unlike most of us who have family momentoes and
yard sale finds stored in cupboards and drawers, never to see the light of day, Patricia Yokom has mastered the art of
creatively recycling, displaying and giving new life to her favorite things.  Her sewing room, guest room and master
bedroom are filled with examples of her genius: A circa 1940's British department store mannequin displays a Victorian
dress, gloves from her childhood hang with other momentoes near family portraits, a vintage fabric border on a pillow
sham adorned with sewing notions is transformed into a picture, a doll house with a glass top becomes a lamp table, the
clear base of a table lamp displays her Mother’s 1920s and 30's depression-era buttons, a collage of family photos under
glass gives new life to a distressed writing desk, a 1940's-50's bedspread adorned with a “yo yo” fabric border becomes
an impressive wall hanging, a shabby sheik “window” with vintage curtains expands the virtual size of her laundry room,
vintage hair ornaments are  attractively grouped together in an oval frame, a fabric bottom masks damage to a charming
hanging birdcage discovered at the Salvation Army, and Victorian ladies boots and a Spode china rose tea cup with fresh
roses to match become attractive table centerpieces.  “Its one thing to have them stored in your garage, but to be able to
have them out and enjoy them [is so much more satisfying],” says Patricia.

Patricia Yokom of Dixon, California is well known in the greater Sacramento area for her knowledge of vintage fashion.  
Recent speaking engagements include the Dixon Library; A.A.U.W. , Davis; Newcomers, Roseville; the Antique Interest
Group of The Farm Circle, Davis; PEO groups in Modesto and Davis, as well as a television appearance on Sacramento
and Company, Channel 10.  Mrs. Yokom currently serves on the Soroptimist of Dixon, International’s Annual Antique Show
Committee and has served as Antique Show Chairperson for past events.  She is a member of the Dixon Chamber of
Commerce and  Friends of the Dixon Public Library.
