Hi, there! I've been back since Sunday from the Country Living Fair in Ohio, but it took me half the week just to go through my pictures and upload them! I've posted quite a few pics on here, so hopefully you'll stick with me on this one...I promise there's plenty of eye candy!
Now of course you'll see why this booth was right up my alley...
Bright colors, Vintage Fun, and Bunting Galore!
Loved all the cute tins in here!
This was the Modern June booth, famous for their oil cloth creations
Next, we have Stash Style, a very cool booth, full of faded vintage goodies...
love these pillows, and the couch was so pretty...I wonder if someone bought it?
Union Jacks! You know I love them!
I don't know the name of this one, but there were tons of
unique vintage items in here...
Here we have Happy Chair, creator Shawna Robinson, upholsters the most unbelievable chairs and sofas you have ever seen!
That's me, in a Happy Chair!
This is the Kelly Lane booth, a fancy cowgirl-chic theme here...
Love the tutu explosion happening here!
Oodles of cowboy/girl boots...i wanted those red ones!
There were lots of cute totes and bags at the fair
This dealer specializes in British Transit Route Signs and upholstery...
The chairs are just super cool, don't you think?
Couldn't resist snapping a pic of these pretty vintage aprons
On to a little tour of the grounds now...
The Pumpkin Tower
Sweet mini vintage metal bench...wanted that too.
Pumpkins for sale
The fair entrance...I was so excited to just get in there already!
The Country Living Demo Kitchen
The Country Living Hall, where you could find the likes of...
Sarah Gray Miller, Editor-in-Chief of Country Living magazine. I did meet her, and told her she looks just like her picture in the magazine, which she truly does...
she was so flattered that she decided to give me a job as a Country Living Contributor right on the spot! Ok, that part didn't happen. The rest is true though!
It is also true that I would love to write for, or contribute to the magazine, as well as, other magazines such as, Romantic Homes and Romantic Country in anyway they would have me. Just puttin' it out there folks...
The Country Living General Store, selling all thing Country Living Brand...
books, totes, magazine, etc.
The Country Living Cafe (indoor and outdoor seating)
I didn't eat there, but did at the some of the stands throughout the fair. My favorite by far was the ice cream at Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams! I had salted caramel ice cream and let me tell you, it was the best ice cream I have ever had! Yum City.
Something I loved, especially if you read my recent post, was the
Sister's On The Fly trailers displayed at the fair...
Cutest Teardrop Trailer
The Teardrop Kitchen
The Teardrop Bedroom
Another Sister's On The Fly trailer...cute to boot for sure!
The adorable trailer dining area
Not part of Sister's On The Fly, but a Lemonade Stand in a trailer...love it!
Hope you enjoyed my Country Living Fair pics! I had such a great time there, it was definitely worth traveling to, and there was more than enough to do and see for a 2 day visit. Prices were pretty much all over the place, if you were wondering. I saw things that were expensive and just in being so, and I saw things that were really just overpriced. There were plenty of good bargains to be had all in between as well. I came away with vintage linens for repurposing, vintage bottles, tins, paper ephemera, a handmade jacket made from vintage chenille for my daughter, and just tons and tons of inspiration! The fair is to be held in Austin, TX in April and I am hoping to go to that one as well.
Just a note...
I may be M.I.A for a bit, as I prepare to sell at two shows in October at,
the Kane County Flea Market and Na-Da Farm. I promise to be back with regular posts and visits after the shows are over...oh how I wish I didn't need sleep, I could get so much more done!
