Yesterday was the quintessential fall day, a great way to kick off the season. My drive up to the fair in the early morning was absolutely gorgeous... as was my ride home....Sunshine on golden fields of corn, vintage tractors at rest, and picturesque farmland, all of which made getting there a feast for the eyes.
WHAT IS IT? WHAT IS IT WORTH?I wish I would have started taking photos a little earlier in the day...I had my hands full early on with shopping bags. I was also toting around my antique Gamble House plate, 1 of a set of 12 I purchased at the estate auction of James N. Gamble of Procter and Gamble fame. The auction, which was last month, was pretty amazing and I was thrilled to bring home this set of china.
Lucky for me, the Country Living Fair was doing "Live Appraisals" with Contributing Editor, Masha Dixey. Ms.Dixey didn't know the exact maker off hand, so it will be a little while longer until we know the "value" of these plates. Thanks to Ms. Dixey for doing a little research on my behalf. I will be anxious to hear what you discover!
BEAUTIFUL SIGHTS at the FAIR
There was just so much to see, so many outstanding booths to visit. I captured a few along the way...I could have taken pictures all day, but then I wouldn't have had the time to shop!
After all that shopping... here are a few of the great things I brought home with me.
I am already looking forward to next year!!
