Years ago I had a booth at this summer antique fair, actually for several years. It always seemed to be either freezing or oppressively hot. Today was brutal and I was glad I was only shopping and not setting up a booth.
I didn't buy much, a bag of antique buttons and a flour sack but it was fun and I'll go back in September when the weather cools and maybe do a little serious shopping.
I thought I'd share a few pictures of today's market, it was not crowded at all which I credit the heat for. The photos are just snap shots as I didn't have the energy to move stuff to get clear shots.
|I think in the heat this guy lost his way|

|Weird furniture of the day, I'm not going to say anything more|
|I have no idea who this lady is but I loved her outlook on life|
|What would life be without Elephant Ears|
|I loved this desk and the beautiful legs, sorry about the sofa in the background but I certainly wasn't going to move it|
|I think the turkey was running from the gator|
|I've always wanted one of these and this guy was a nice size, just too hot to pick him to a lug him to the car|
|Only in America can we take healthy food and fry it! My friends and I had fried pickles a couple of months ago and they were really good|
|This lovely lady had a booth in the shade and really great pieces, again to hot to shop|
|OK, my favorite piece of the day, I just love this! These guys had a wonderful whimsical booth called REBEL reclaimed|
I won't be visiting in August, this one about did me in. September will hopefully bring cooler temperatures and better prices.
