A Day at the COUNTRY LIVING Fair

This post is waaaay overdue. An area blackout/power outage lasting several days and a fun road trip immediately following has put me behind on showing you these scenes from the fair. It was held at the beautiful Ohio Village in Columbus, Oh.


The vendor's booths were fantastic! Lots of creative displays, beautiful items, antiques, and just really cool old stuff. :) This booth had fun feedsack bags and pillows. (I just found out that these cute feedsack bags are made by Arlene of http://www.heartrockshome.com/)

This was one of my favorite booths (below). It was by Bloomsbury Loft and they had fun items at every turn. The booth was so crowded all day long that I had a really hard time getting a decent picture.






Another vendor had some lovely vintage linen towels with monograms...had to bring a few of those home with me. ;)All in all it was a great day at the fair.

THat looks wonderful! I think I could have unloaded a lot of cash at that event. Glad to see your doing lollipops. I'm just starting the search for some aqua and pink barkcloth fabric for pillows, so heading over to your site.

Wow! Looks like a great time. So much eye candy. It must've been hard to decide what to take home with you. Love those monogrammed towels you picked up!

Hi. I am the creator of the vintage bags and totes from flour sacks you show in this post. They are part of the VINTAGE BARN booth. Is it okay if I use your pictures on my blog. Thank you. Arlene www.HeartRocksHome.com
