Shipshewana Antique Fair 2010
Once again... I'm behind on my posting... it has a month since we we're actually there...but I wanted to share this years outing with "Blogland". I love the sign..."Tourists" indeed! Remeber when these were going for around $1 ?? ...Still always enjoyable to look at.. I believe my great grandmother wore a hat like this to my parents wedding..... I should have bought it and wore it to quilt guild... or at least w-mart!! This vendor had a fabulous display of Vaseline Glass... and ws so gracious to let me take a few shots...divine!! ... and then there was this mini monster!! I totally missed the shot of him yawning... he was just a baby but what a character!! Quilts!! This one was at the Antique mall.. No trip to Shipshe is complete withut a visit to see Rebecca Haarer and her drool-worthy selection of wares...... Sandy has thrown self control out the window..... haha We wrapped up the day with a trip to the mini-burg of Emma , just a few miles out from Shipshe for some old fashioned hand dipped Ice Cream.... call it another BIG FAT DAY!!
I love connecting with other creative people!I am a Sales Rep for APQS Long-Arm Quilting Machines as well as run a Quilting Business which enables me to help people finish their quilt tops.My primary focus is fiber and I enjoy all aspects of it.Quilt history and Art quilts are another interest of mine along with collecting antique and vintage quilt parts.I live with 4 cats, 3 dogs,8 chickens and my Husband who is a Godzilla/gamer/Theater geek.We live on a small farm and enjoy riding our motorcycles as much as we can in the warmer months......even though we should be mowing or gardening!
