1. definition of a perfect day: the antique fair

    7 Comments





    Just warning you, this is a lengthy one. Perfect days call for long 2-day documentation. (See tomorrow’s post for second half of the day)

    Woke up bright and early on a Saturday, which is pretty rare. I must have been excited about what we had planned for the day. Promptly at 10:00 I woke the boy up to get ready to go to our neighborhood’s 42th annual home and garden tour /”Antique Fair” being held in our neighborhood square. Several booths were calling my name and I was anxious to get out there before everyone else, hoping to find a treasure. It was steamy hot, even at 10am in the morning, but the boy and I parked the car and started to peruse the square. Lots of great booths, lots of great items, but unfortunately everything was over priced. (why didn’t I buy one of those plastic mouse figures above…I’m hating myself for passing one of those up) I’ve learned to not be disappointed if I don’t find something worth while, so we got back in the car and drove to the farmers market in the next neighborhood over.   TO BE CONTINUED…..(tomorrow)

      Everything in your pictures look absolutely amazing! I would gladly purchase any of the items, especially that chair and picture in photograph #1. That is so awesome that they have been having their annual garage sale for that many year. I bet they have some many lovely things waiting to be taken to a new home. xx

      Certainly sounds like a perfect day to me!I feel like I always need to buy something if I’m debating it because I usually regret it afterwards! but, sometimes if you don’t find anything it is the search/hunt that is oh so exciting and pleasing! :) -Lo
