Liberty Antiques Festival Part Two


What glorious fall weather we are having this weekend! Yesterday I went to the apple orchard instead of the pumpkin farm with my daughter and granddaughter. I wish the cooler weather would stick around, but the forecast this week has it back in the 80's again. That is not fall weather.

Today I want to share more photos from my trip last weekend to the Liberty Antiques Festival in Liberty, NC. If you missed the first post you can read it here.

This dough bowl was almost as tall as me and the $195 price was really good for one this size.

This great big chicken blew me away and I had no clue what it was, but the vendor was happy to tell me all about it.

Here is an explanation of what it is and how much he wanted for it. A little out of my budget. :)

Collect purple bottles? They had plenty.

There were plenty of breadboards.

Even pig shaped ones.

Another old horse toy with a huge price tag.

There was plenty of beautiful antique furniture and we noticed most of it was not painted.

Loved this chippy door with the handle, but afraid my ride wasn't large enough.

Great tool caddie. Kind of wish I had gotten it.

And here is one of my partners in crime acting silly. It's good to get silly with girlfriends.

So what came home with me? Well, I have shared two items in this post and this one.

More coming soon.

Now, get out there and enjoy your day!

  1. I enjoyed seeing your tour as I have always loved NC. That Watkins caddy interested me because back in the late 1930s when my mother was a young unmarried woman, she got a job as a driver for a lady who sold Watkins products farm to farm. In fact, that lady introduced by mother and father! She passed on a vintage cookbook published by Watkins to me which I treasure. Have you ever seen the movie starring William Macy as Mr. Watkins?

  2. I would have went broke at the transferware booth!

  3. Oh, I am so jealous! My sister and I need to plan a trip next year!

  4. Oh wow, tons of great stuff. Thanks for the tour.

  5. Wow! I am overwhelmed with the lovely things that you saw (fabulous photos, BTW). I loved all of the purple glassware ( purple is my favorite color - but I don't have a single purple item in my decor). Also, I would not have been able to resist that huge dough bowl. It is much more than I typically pay for items - but it was amazing.

  10. Wish I'd been there. I love bread boards. Just saw your new pic on your sidebar. YOU LOOK FANTASTIC! I want your secret again. I can't move around as much as I use to, but I'd like to lose 20 pounds anyway.
