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

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.

Coming Soon ~ Lollishops

I'm sure by now, many of you have heard of Lollishops. Scheduled to open sometime around December, it is a juried site of selected shops offering a variety of girly sweet items. Advertising itself as the "Frou Frou Friendly Marketplace", categories will range from the romantic to whimsical, from the fanciful to down-right adorable.
Here at Niesz Vintage Fabrics, I'll be hanging my shingle out at Lollishops, too.
I'll be busy creating projects especially for the Lollishop buyer. Some will incorporate unique and adorable vintage children's fabrics while others will focus on romantic floral barkcloth fabrics and lush velvet accents.
And of course, I'll have some of my pretty vintage fabrics available in the shop, as well. :)

Stop by the Lollishops blog for the latest news and a preview of some of the lovely items that will be offered.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
