A Fair in the Woods

 On a cold and rainy Autumn day, we went to a fair in the woods at a really wonderful farm.

 We went to one here in June.  They hold two each year and I doubt that I will miss any of them.

 The tents are set up under the trees.


 Fabric pumpkins.

 For several years I have been looking for something and I found it at this booth. 

 You could take a carriage ride through the fields.

 A honey booth.

 What a cute name.

 George and Floyd's hot sauce.  It's really good!

 This woman had some really nice things.  The set of yellow ware bowls (6 of them) was 100.00 and she said she would negotiate. I passed but I bet someone scooped them up.

 The pond.


 The farm was beautifully decorated.

 Bittersweet for sale.

 The side entrance to the farmhouse.

 A place to warmup.

 The driveway.

Their vintage truck.
I bought these two greenware planters which match my green bowl collection.  They are in perfect condition and were 8.00.
The Blog Tech bought this pristine microphone from the 50's.  It appears to have never been used.
This was my big find.  I have been looking for faceted prisms at a good price for the last few years.   These are old lead crystal and they sure do shine.  I got about 350 of them for 100.00.  A very good deal.  In a few weeks, I'll show you how I am going to use them.


Looking forward to your faceted prism "reveal" in due course! Love the Blog Tech's microphone too.

what a wonderful event, we have nothing like these Fairs here, I wonder why? Its just amazing nestled in the woods like that, gosh I could stay forever, I can't wait to see what you do with those crystals, beautiful, I wish I had known you ten years ago, I gave a whole box of them away! I found them when cleaning out the attic, I would have gladly given them to you!

What a great festival. I can't find real bittersweet out here. I was told that it does not grow here. A very tiny 2 or 3 stems was $15 dollars. I passed.

I love a good old fair, especially in autumn. I haven't had the chance to go to one this year.

Nothing sparkles like lead crystal and I love that ting sound it make
Looks like you found some real treasures at this festival. I love the greenware planters, a lot. UNBELIEVABLE price.

Wow! What a fun festival. Really looks well planned, with a lot of nice vendors. I don't think I'd miss one of their events, either.

Looking forward to seeing the project that you have in mind for the crystals.

Hope today is a great one for you.
