Vintage Shopping, Past and Future

What a fabulous event Homegrown Hootin-Annie's Fall Festival was! As guests arrived, they were transported up a long drive by truck or by horse and carriage, and then dropped off to walk up the remaining drive where they were greeted with charming and whimsical vignettes created by participating vendors.

My creation...a faux dress form scarecrow I named Miss Autumn

Unfortunately most of my indoor pictures of the actual boutiques and wonderful wares didn't turn out very good, but I've shown a few (blurry) photos of my own space.

You can see much more by visiting the Farmstead blog here.

Along the lines of fantastic, fun events, I have one more event coming up to tell you about. Then, I'll be taking a break from shows until spring, and HAPPILY will be doing much more blogging than I have in the past few weeks. But first, without further delay, I must announce...

See a window display preview by visiting the Northland Vintage Market blog here.

Hi Ann,
Thanks for the reminder about the upcoming Vintage Market at Zona. I will definitely be there and I will bring along a pincushion!!
Look forward to seeing you next weekend.

I've enjoyed the entire tour through your wonderful photos. And I'm in love with all of the chairs pictured. Well, all except for the rocker—rocking chairs tend to creep me out.

And Annie, had I gone to the fall festival, I would've skipped both, the truck and the horse and carriage. They only would've slowed me down [G]

Best of luck with the next event!

Oooooohhhhhh.........what a fun shopping experience. I wish I didn't live so far away. That's the problem with blogland....I see all of these fabulous places to see and live about 48 gazillion miles away.

Warm blessings,
