Country Living Fair 2014 and Finds


This year the weather could not have been any more perfect for a day outside at the Country Living Fair. Perfect cool temps after being so cold and windy last year.

My sister met me and Laura at the fair and this was taken with Laura's phone right after we walked through the gate by a lady we had talked to briefly at the restroom.

Shortly after we got there we made a bee line to the French Laundry Home booth where beautiful linens and pillows are sold at super prices. This was a bed on display there.

This is the print on the duvet. The fair photos were taken with my phone and I only took a few.

This is another view of the bed. All the linens are for sale.

My other favorite booth is the one I hit up last year for a couple breadboards and a market basket. He had some great stuff again, but I ended up not purchasing anything from him this time.

Here is a look at some of what came home with me. Two breadboards, two ironstone bowls and some Christmas things.

I bought four of the white wreaths and eight of the green branches. The prices were very reasonable and I can't wait to use them this Christmas.

My sister and I both loved the simplicity of this garland with tiny pine cones on it.

My absolute favorite find is this red ticking pleated box pillow from French Laundry Home. 
It's a 20 x 20 with a luscious down insert and only $40. The rest of her pillows that aren't box shaped are $30 and lumbar shaped ones were $20.

So that is my loot and if I had bottomless pockets I would have gotten more. 

If anyone in the area is going this weekend just beware that it is extremely crowded so be patient.

Hope y'all have a fabulous Saturday!

  17. That is a great looking pillow...and I LOVE that simple garland that looks like it is frosted. I picked up a couple of those white wreaths, too. On another note you look really good. I can tell that you took weight off-looking pretty hot there, (no I am NOT "interested" in you)...Diana

  19. French Laundry Home had a huge space at the Round Top Antique Show in Texas this fall. The prices are GREAT and there were so many things from which to choose. They also had come early to Round Top and had quite a bit of shopping themselves. They had to put sold signs on all their new purchased treasures because everyone was trying to buy those pieces. LOL

  21. Looks like some really great finds and a really great haul that you made. Can't wait to see them in your home!

  22. Hello Kim - it was a perfect weekend - so sad I missed seeing you! My sister and both my daughter's accompanied me this year - the best part was watching their expressions and enjoying their finds. We do develop several favorites - there was one I loved last year - but he wasn't there! LOVE your breadboard - I got one too - it looks a bit different and am looking forward already to decorating for Christmas! Hope you have a fantastic week,

  23. I would love to do this next year! Do the vendors take checks and credit cards? cash only?
