...the Country Living Fair, that is. The Country Living Fair took place this weekend in Lebanon, TN. Just 3 hops, 2 skips and 7 jumps down the road from me. Actually, it was a little bit further than that, but who cares! It was the Country Living Fair!
This was my first time to attend. There were so many great things to see....and buy! But before I show you what treasures I found at the fair, I have to tell you about the most wonderful popcorn I've ever put in my mouth! It is Kettle Corn by the Wilson Family. It is only sold at fairs and carnivals, which makes me very sad. The hubby and I finished off a bag as long as my arm - in less than an hour! We couldn't stop eating it -- we know it had to be covered in MSG because we couldn't keep our hands out of that darn bag. I almost went back on Sunday (entry fee was $16.00) just to purchase another huge bag of that popcorn. It would have been the most expensive popcorn purchase in our family history!! OH. MY. GOSH. It was the perfect blend of salty and sweet and just melted in your mouth. I need to stop talking about it because I'm going to start crying -- we don't have any more and we can't buy it again until August when the fair comes around.
Now that the jag is over with about that wonderfully delicious mouth-watering popcorn, I will show you some goodies.
I found this awesome vintage thermos.
It is in excellent shape with only a few scratch marks. The inside is perfect! There were only 2 of these at this particular booth. I bought one and a lady who drove down from Michigan bought the other. Did you catch that? She drove down from Michigan. It was 30 degrees and snowing when she left Michigan. We chatted while standing in line about our twin thermoses.
We are two very wise women!
I also picked up this beautiful picnic basket.
It was from the same booth. There were only two of these also. No, the woman from Michigan did not buy the other picnic basket. :-)
I have big plans for this guy.
As usual, two stray books followed me home.
This happens to me all the time and I just don't know how to make it stop!
Another purchase -- this adorable twig hanging basket.
It will hang perfectly on my front door.
A great score - the olive bucket.
I've always wanted one but was hesitant to order it until I had an up close and personal look. The owner of this booth started out with over 20 of these. By the time I made my purchase, she had two left. While I was standing in line to pay, someone grabbed another one.
Very popular items these little olive buckets.
I know I should have taken photos of all the booths and goodies, but I wanted to enjoy the day. Plus, I think I might have been trampled if I had tried to move women out of the way to snap a few shots! :-)
