Just in case you've never been to a Country Living Magazine Fair
it is our favorite show of the year,
not just a craft show,
not just an antique show,
not just an art show,
not just a gift show,
not just entertainment,
not just celebrities
but all of these things and MORE !

all rolled into one fabulous event

It took me so long to recoup from last year's event that I never got around to doing my 
blog post ...so here goes .... it will give you a taste of the flavor of a
Country Living Magazine event !

This is my booth on the corner in the Artist's Market field
you will be able to find me by my signature pink ruffles.
(next to me is my bestie bel monili.. you will have to check her out too)

the line to get in is INSANE !!
so these early bird tickets will help you a LOT !

and really, the goods !! the goods are amazing to say the least...
presentation is everything at a Country Living Fair !

the eye candy is just everywhere you turn !

 bring a cart .. you will need it ...otherwise .. many many trips back to the car !

this is my friend Krystal's booth

Lucketts Spring Market 2014

* * *

So ............ April showers...
well, lets say ... May showers....
and lots of them 

brought a mud filled "wear your boots"
Lucketts Spring Market this year

after the initial insanity of scrambling to move vendors 
because all of the fields literally turned into swimming pools

everything settled down and the show went on 

bel monili and I signed up for 4 spots, ended up lucky with 2, 
but we worked hard to make the best of it !

Come take a walk with me around the fair

our friend Sue from Vintage Rescue Squad 
~ a kindred spirit ~ 
always brings the most unique stuff

we also met up with  Robin from the Robin's Nest who can bring it for sure !

check out the stand above.... top is made from an old bowling alley ..
you gotta love it !!

and this was another piece from the Robin's Nest booth
if the awesome color and retro-ness wasn't enough,
they turned it into a floor lamp !!

and Joanna from Findings @ Summer house 
 ( one of our country living fair friends )
really knows how to pack a booth

after all the rain, we were certainly pleased that the sun shone all weekend

we are aware that the parking was non existent, and they were tons of issues, 
but those who attended said it was fantastic, especially considering all the hiccups

as always, we were exhausted after 2 fun filled days,
and did the 3 hour drive home Sunday night

poor Lucy did the drive home, 
directly into the sun as it seems
we always end up doing !
(but made for great photo op for me)

so .................. 2 weeks at home and then on to New York and  
Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck
hope to see YOU there !
