The Country Living fair Part II

Our favorite booth.  A fun name and I love their decorations.

Click for closer looks on any photos.  This woman is the overseer of the fair and is quite a character.

These ladies show up each year to sell their baked goods.

Alleys of booths.

I have a weakness for oil cloth.  This booth sells oil cloth fabric as well as all kinds of things made from it.  I bet she sold lots of these carts.  Everyone has a cart at this fair.

Old cameras and a freak show sign.  I should have bought that.

Cute birdhouses.

This is why you always want to buy the early bird tickets.   Not only is it not crowded, it is also usually a bit cool.

I think these metal buckets might be potato bucket.  They have holes along the sides so you could rinse the potatoes and the water drains.

A Fanny Farmer candy sign.

Basket, buckets and coffee tables made from farm scales.

The stash ladies again.  They take clothes from thrift shops and embellish them with lace, ribbons and stencils.

The trailer ladies have a cowboy flair.

Creepy baby doll creatures.

The Stash lady gets checked out from behind.  Men!

The old car.

Metal guitars.

Lots of signs.  I guess signs sell.  I certainly buy them.

Die boxes with a Halloween theme.

Plump pumpkins.

This woman paints the originals and then makes copies of them.  I have a lot of her items.

We only spent 1  1/2 hours at the fair.  I shop fast.  Look at the line as we were leaving.

It stretched on forever.  It gets so crowded that you have to wait in line to get into the booths.

I could never attend this fair if it wasn't for the early bird tickets.  I don't have that kind of patience.
