If you go:
1. Bring a wagon, they loan you a big one to get you to the loading area if you get large pieces of furniture, but a small one was great for our group of 5, and we just took turns pulling it.
2. Get there early, we didn't realize it closed at 3pm!, but some of our best deals were made as others were closing up.
3. Try the food!!! We had one of our best meals of the week from one of the gourmet food trucks.
4. Bring water, it is hot even on an overcast day.
5. An obvious thought, wear great shoes, we had to walk close to 2 miles just to get in, and that was before we started the hours of up and down the aisles.
a few views from the day.......
these succulent gardens were made all out of reclaimed finds, very beautiful!!!
I think Jaime will be making one of these armillaries (wine barrel rims)
Sooz was on the hunt for anything "Yankee"
old posters that hung in the classroom, do you remember these?
"Ivy" is found. We had brought a wagon from the house that we were staying in and as we all took turns pulling her around the faire, she caused quite a stir
love the way they took old watches, we all have those lying around the dresser, and gorilla glued a new adornment on them and turned it into a lovely bracelet
wanna see what Rose did with a pile of these letters, stop by the nursery and she will show you. and what is even cooler, AFTER our return from the trip she found some of these still in their ORIGINAL use, can you guess what it was??? (comment below, you could win a prize!!!!)
I am a sucker for these kind of re-purposed lamps, LOVE THEM!!!
lampshade made out of rulers......hmmmm, maybe for the teacher on your list
Rose with her first find of the day, can't wait to see what she does with it
and Lucia with hers, can't you see that dream of the Matterhorn reflected in her eyes?
