Yesterday's Antique Harvest Festival was lovely, fun, and challenging all in one. The show is spread out across the grounds of a centennial farm - the main home is a completely redone Victorian - with some vendors in the redone farm buildings, and some outdoors.
We were outdoors, as typically in October, you have beautiful sun, a little bit of cooler fall weather, and lots of colorful foliage. We did indeed have all of that yesterday, but as well: 20 - 30 mph gusts of wind. That made for some unique challenges: holding up garment racks of clothes; picking up (again and again) pretty floral decorations; and grabbing up vintage metal tins that would occasionally scatter off of their tables.
All in all though it was a lovely show. I sold a lot of vintage lab ware, + some coats went to new homes! My favorite sale: an older women, probably in her late 70s, who tried on a 1950s wool boucle coat with a ginormous fox fur collar, and then promptly nodded her head to declare that that was "the one."
