Liberty Antiques Festival Part One

9.30.2014

Last Thursday hubby and I traveled north about 5 1/2 hours to my friend Shirley's. Mary Alice and her hubby drove south about the same distance from Virginia. Shirley lives in the middle and lives about 45 minutes from the Liberty Antiques Festival that takes place twice a year so she was kind to invite us to her home and then a day of shopping at the festival.




According to the web site there are over 400 dealers at this festival and it covers 100 acres. We had watched the weather for over a week before this event and it rained all day on Wednesday, but then it was supposed to be out of there. Well, nope, nada, it drizzled most of the morning on Friday which makes an outside event like this kind of miserable.

The rain didn't bother the lower half of me. I was armed with these rubber boots I found at Nordstrom Rack a few days before the trip. 

I took lots of pictures and I'm not going to talk too much, but let you just see all the varieties of things found at this sale. This was a cute display at one of the tents.

Mary Alice did a lot of bargaining with the dealers.







I saw several old rocking horses and  would have loved to get one, but they were all a bit more that my pocketbook would allow.









There were lots of signs for sale.







We ran into Kristen of Sophia's Decor blog and her mom Linda since they live in the area, too. Kristen's step dad took this picture of us. Excuse the hair after the rain. We weren't looking our best by this time.
Like my bag? Well, that is a wonderful leather tote bag from Duluth Trading, but I will talk more about that another time.

I have many more pictures to share so we will leave those for part two.

Do you have any trips or fair pictures to share? Well, link them up tonight at Wow.

See y'all there!

  1. Too much fun!! All the displays are so beautiful. Worth the trip just to see! I did see a few things that would have been coming home with me. ;) blessings ~ tanna

  2. That looks like fun, and manageable with just 400 dealers. I say just because too many of these fairs have grown waay too big. And as a dealer just coming off a barn sale, the only thing worse I can imagine than the dirt we endured would be rain mixed with the dirt! Wha'd ya buy, readers wanna know?! Have a great day.

  7. You always bargain with the dealers! LOL We are big antiquers but these kind of festivals with so much to see overwhelm me. I like Duluth Trading Company but could never carry a bag that big. For a shopping trip, I like a crossbody bag - hands free. As for the hair - well, mine would definitely be sporting the curl like the lady in the back row!

  14. Kim, it looks like fun, even with the rain. Round Top is this week, but I'm staying home this round. Just returned from France and enjoyed four different markets while there. I need to sit this one out. '-)
    Thanks for sharing the photos.
