Today was a beautiful day – mid 80s with a slight breeze. A perfect day for an Antique Street Fair. My DH and I picked up my friend, Connie, at 8:00 am and headed to Arcadia, FL. After about 30 minutes on the road we did a McDonald’s drive through for a biscuit and diet coke (I don’t drink coffee), then headed on our way. This was Connie’s first time going with us and it was so much fun to watch her reaction as we turned onto Oak Street and she saw all of the venders set up on the sidewalks and in the bank parking lot and the city park. This is a small town with 24 Antique Shops in a four block area, and on the fourth Saturday of each month additional vendors set up in the outside areas.
A new Prim Shop has opened since the last time we were there and it is a delightful shop full of all the prim needfuls that we just can’t do without. I found candles, a small peg basket, and a pip berry spray to complete a project I had in my head. Do y’all do that – have an idea of an area that you want to decorate, and items you need, and then go Antique/Prim shopping with those specific things in mind? Well I did today and I found what I was looking for - I will post pictures and tell you about it when the project is complete. Oh, I also got some dried bowl fixins – can’t ever have too much of that.
I took a picture of my goodies in the back of our SUV when we got home – some crocks and stoneware, some pewter, a couple of wooden bowls, a pantry box, some faux pumpkins, a wooden shelf (that needs a little makeover) and the items I got at the Prim Shop. I will post more pictures when I find a home for everything.
Before I close I must take a moment and brag on my husband, my very best friend – he escorted us all over town, carried packages for us, took things to the car, and treated us to lunch. He is so much fun to be with and is so good to me. I think I’ll keep him!
Now I am going to say goodnight because my A Primitive Place magazine was waiting for me in the mailbox when I got home, and I can’t think of a better ending to an already perfect day than to peruse this awesome magazine.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
