Oh my goodness!  I had so much fun last weekend.

There’s an antique fair in our area that boasts they have 400 vendors.  That’s a lot of booths.

And we saw it all!

Okay… we did not inspect every single item.  But, we passed by every booth with eagles’ eyes hoping to find something extraordinary.

And we were not disappointed.

These chairs were so cute!  Of course I want to sit and read a book on the Adirondack chaise.  Isn’t it wonderful? And the others are so chippy and sweet and perfect for the garden.

And who would have thought… that when you’ve run the wheels off your scooter… you could just leave it outside to rust and let it become an object de art cum flower planter of sorts.

Raise your hand if you’d be tempted to take this one home with you.

Then there’s the screen door with the subtle French-style stenciling.  It would be so fun for the porch, or maybe even a pantry.  And that sweet blue patio set has the cutest little curled feet…. perfect for the garden and maybe a tea party.  Yes?

You can tell the fair was the weekend before the Fourth… American flags were flying everywhere.

I confess to being a flag-waving patriot… so all the red, white, and blue makes my little heart go pitter-patter.

And transferware… and linens… oh my… I have a huge weakness

I’m not so sure about this Uncle Sam…. he doesn’t look like an antique does he?  However there’s no doubt he did his job by drawing people in to the booth.  “Uncle Sam wants YOU!!”

And then there’s the prettiest boat I’ve ever seen.

How fun would it be to putter around the lake with it?

If you’ve ever thought about doing a little boho (Bohemian) decorating… this is the place to go shopping.  So many fun and whimsical things and so much color.

I think my friend Kristi from Addicted to Decorating needs these windows.  They look the beautiful doors she created for her new home.

Wouldn’t it be fun to be a little one and enjoy this for your high chair? And the color… wonder what was the name of that paint chip?

This booth was a plethora of kitsch…. perfect for a fun vintage kitchen.  What catches your eye?

It’s been quite a few years since I attended this antique fair.  As times have changed from lots of wood and oak furniture, I expected to see a lot of mid-century furniture… but that was not the case.  Maybe the dealers haven’t caught the bug.  Or maybe it’s not as popular in “real life” as it is in blogland.

We walked our socks off… enjoyed our lunch from one of the vendors and between the two of us didn’t spend $10 on our finds.  Pretty cheap entertainment for five hours and a day at the antique fair .  Maybe we’ll go back next month.

How about you? Do you have a favorite fair or flea or haunt that you like to frequent for picking up items for your home?  What’s your best find?

Wishing you... An Extraordinary Day!

    What fun going to the antique fair. Wish I was there. It had a little of everything. Thanks for the birds eye view.

    • And that was just a glimpse. It was a little overwhelming until we found our groove. 😉
