I have to admit, I’m a pretty indecisive shopper. I like to exhaust ALL my options to make sure that what I’m buying is actually what I really want. So at a place like the CL Fair, where you have over 200 vendors spread out over a huge fairgrounds, that’s kind of a disadvantage because by the time you exhaust all your options, a.) you yourself are physically exhausted because you just walked a bazillion miles, and b.) what you wanted initially may not be there anymore. And that’s a BIG bummer. So, I kind of had to force myself to make decisions or be OK with the fact that whatever item I was looking at may not be there if I waited around.
The first thing I purchased was from a booth that had all kinds of linens, blankets, pillows, etc. made from vintage grain sacks. I bought a nice little table runner and a throw blanket that I am totes in love with.
Remember when I used to be afraid of red? Psh! Look at me now!
One thing that I’ve been searching for is an old window or mirror to decorate up our mantle for fall. When I came across this window, I fell in love with it! And the fact that it had a lovely picture hand-painted on it?? Hello, icing..meet my cake.
Our last purchase of the day was actually from the same vendor we bought the window from. It’s a vintage first aid crate and we currently have it sitting on our hearth to hold our throw blankets. Love it!
