Of course, you must stop by the famous pumpkin tower! Don’t you love the assortment of sizes, shapes and colors?
Then we headed into the General Store where there was a display of pretty fall centerpieces…
…and seasonal tablescapes. Love those unusual bark chargers! And, no, you can’t use pencils as utensils, but they do add some rustic country charm!
Now off to shop! I loved this pretty soap! Wish you could smell it!
And there were piles of fabulous vintage goodies like these old clocks that were missing their works…
…and these great vintage printing press letters…
…this collection of tin tart molds…
…and these old-fashioned tin Santa molds! I loved these because this Santa looks more like the French Père Noël but I wasn’t willing to wait in line to buy one. The Christmas booths were really popular!
And speaking of Christmas, how about a tree made from reclaimed bead board?
If you know me, you know I love sheep and goats so I lingered for a few minutes checking out this life-size sheep! Hey…my HOA would let me have this one! I’m not sure if the little friend that was crawling around on his head came with him!
I loved this vintage rocking doggy but my little grands are really too big for it now. However, I did see it later being lovingly carried away by another grandmother…to a good home, I am sure!
I really wanted these…fabulous frenchy legs just waiting for a table top…but there’s no space for another table in my house!
And there were other bits of frenchiness scattered around the fair as well!
But I don’t think you will be surprised when I show you what came home with me…a gorgeous pair of earrings made from my favorite grapey vintage silverplate flatware pattern from juNxtaposition…and a fabulous little Quimper dish…
…from Cari Cucksey (in the purple scarf) of HGTV’s Cash and Cari! Woo hoo! One of my favorite TV stars! :-) What fun!
And I also came away with some farmhouse-y galvanized sap buckets, too! But best of all, I had a great time hanging out with my friends…(l to r) my BFF Nan, moi, and fellow blogger Barb from The Everyday Home! Only thing missing…I didn’t eat a funnel cake! Maybe next time!
