Country Living Fair 2012

Sept. 14th the annual Country Living Fair, sponsored by Country Living Magazine, came to town!  Yipee!  Three generations of our family got up early and got busy shopping!
I can't even begin to describe the fun that we had and the wonderful handmade items we saw.  The first thing bought was this adorable vintage suitcase with both sides covered in chalkboard paint. 
We bought a bit of handcrafted jewelry too.  We all got a beautiful bracelet made from beads and reclaimed charms. http://belmonili.blogspot.com/
This lovely piece and the cuff links below are Laurie Leonard Designs.  She is out of Jeannette PA. 
The cuff links are very steampunkish and I love them.

Our FAVORITE booth is Sundaes Best Hot Fudge Sauce.  Unbelievably good chocolate.
We had to pick up the best roma tomato seeds at the next booth!  These tomatoes grow huge! 
We also got a purse made from a Harry Potter book and some giant cookies for the boys left at home.  Don't worry, we ate well too.  Wolfed down huge pulled pork sandwiches for lunch.  Once we had a little more room in our tummies we had peach and cherry cobbler with fresh ice cream on top.  Loaded with our new treasures and lots of ideas for things we knew would be fun to make ourselves.......we headed back home.  Can't wait for next year!
