It happens every June and September in Burton, Ohio, about 20 minutes from where we live. Today's event was a particularly good one one, I thought. Lots of vendors and perfect weather. Cool and cloudy.
Much better than those times when we slogged through mud while dodging raindrops trying to stay warm, or baked in the heat of the hot sun.
I resisted the urge to splurge on furniture, as I really have no room for anything, but I did come home with lots of treasures for upcoming SToNZ necklaces:
Faucet knob heaven!
Some great old Disney stuff:
For the Beatleophile. That's a thing, right?
Daffy Dan sighting!
Don Draper, I found your shades.
Industrial is still super hot.
Is that bellows large enough or what?!
Apparently keys DO grow on trees.
If you are thinking of going to this show in September, here's a little advice:
Get there early (it's worth paying the extra $20 to beat the crowds), bring cash and a checkbook, don't be afraid to bargain but be polite about it, dress for the weather (it might be muddy, hot, freezing...bad weather can be your friend as there will be fewer shoppers and the vendors will be eager to unload stuff rather than carting it home) and try the french fries. They are unfriggin' believable.
