Country Living Wrap Up

I can't believe 2 weeks have passed since I posted about the great weekend in Columbus at the Country Living Fair! I started on a long term sub assignment teaching Foods and Sewing at the highschool I sub alot at.  The young teacher had her baby, over last weekend, and I was called to step in on Monday.  My world now consists of teaching, planning, grocery shopping, grading, and even had a parent teacher meeting already this past week!  Whew!  And yesterday I sat all day at my booth at our local park where our little town is celebrating it's Bicentennial!  I dressed in costume and sold my wares.  Today, all I want to do is stare at my computer, type and drink fluids!  Well,  I want to put up some more pics here as a continuation from last post,so you can enjoy the Fair from your desk chair.  Stick through the pics, and next post will see my latest "Living with Vintage" tutorial, Jewelry Organizer. ( I actually sold one yesterday already, so maybe I found a new hit...time will tell)

Karen, Donna and myself at the entrance, look how eager we are!

This lady sold painted naugehide, or vinyl, that was sculpted into baskets or flat as placemats!

This vendor was amazing, lots of great furniture, cabinets and chandeliers!

Artgoodies, was interviewed on a recent CrafSanity podcast!  So excited to meet her in person!


loved this display!

Well if this hasn't been a commercial for the best fair I have ever been to, I don't know what else is!  Hope you enjoyed the visit, I have a stack of cards with the vendors names, if you see something here, and want more info, post your question.  I'll try to match cards with what I saw.  Have a great week, watch for tutorials next.
