We headed north yesterday morning for the Springfield Antique Show and Flea Market. Just about an hour and a half from us we have one of the biggest shows around! Although there is a show each month, in May and September they host their Extravaganza's, 2200 dealers set up on the Clark County Fairgrounds. We even set up here in September of 08. I would like to do it again this year. I posted about it here and here.
Everything can be found here, from stained glass windows and huge door frames to flowers for your garden.
I met a couple of bloggers there as well. Here is Kathy from Sylvia's Vintage Daughter. Her space is always so cute. Just like her.
My hubs took a pic of us together but my eyes were closed so no posting that one! I bought a few sweet goodies for my studio space from her. More on my haul later.
I am on a tight budget so no big items for me until I get rid of all the things already overflowing in my garage. I was sorely tempted though.
Rhubarb Reign, no pics though. We were just about finished at the point and I totally forgot about my camera. Unbelievable, I know. They will be at the Burlington Antiques Show tomorrow and that is even closer to us. If we get a moment to head south I will try to get a pic. I did score some great ephemera there however. I will share it in another post.
So many things to covet. We also had a ball just watching the people, and being surrounded by the scent of fairground food.
I mean, seriously, when you think of Ohio fairgrounds, you immediately envision Thai food...right? Good, though.
I can't count how many little dogs were being pushed around in strollers. These two were a hoot!
This piece of re-purposed furniture was amazing. An old cabinet, tin tiles, the top of a gas stove, a bit of paint and some wine glass holders, voila, a vintage bar! I want one.
I saved the best for last. This pic is for TNT Debbie and her Cat Daddy. We didn't sample the fare but I took a lot of photos because I have a little plan for them. Later...
I will share my purchases in another post, today is my sweet little Sadie girl's 19th birthday and we also have a party tonight for my good friend's son who just graduated from college and has taken a job in Cambodia. Busy weekend, hope yours is great!
Have a scintillating Saturday, P.
