We survived the Country Living Fair and boy did we have fun. I took lots of pictures so I will break this up into a couple of posts.
Right after we parked the car and got out, Rhonda in the red, got out of the car next to us and said that she knew us. She knew Shirley and her blog and she knew me and mine. This is the first time I have had a reader recognize me. Rhonda and her husband had gone to the north Georgia mountains and were on there way back home to Florida.
This is just a snippet of the size of the lines that were waiting to get in. It was packed.
Here is a view of Stone Mountain for those of you who have not seen it.
Country Living Fair banners and signs were scattered throughout the area.
This was a large copy of the latest magazine cover.
This is a group photo we had made for HomeTalk. We put on our blue HomeTalk t shirts for the picture. These are mostly Atlanta area bloggers and a few that came in from out of town like Shirley did.
Joanne Palmisano of the DIY Network was on stage sharing how to make vintage signs. We watched for a bit and then left to go do some shopping.
Cari of Cash and Carry from HGTV was there selling her wares.
Shirley recognized Hoss, Cari's sidekick, right away and wanted her picture made with him. He was so nice and said sure and then told us Cari would be back shortly and we could have our picture made with her, too.
Cari was so darn cute in her retro outfit and so sweet.
This was just one of the trails that leads down to the tents where all the goods are.
Loved this sign, but not for $195.
Lots of great things to be found at some really good prices like these old cheese boards for $68.
We were so worn out from all the walking, but it was so worth it.
Lots more to come and what came home with me so stay tuned.
