More on the Country Living Fair 2010

It's November...I wouldn't believe it if it wasn't so cold outside! It's been since the beginning of October that I started blogging about my trip to the Country Living Fair in Columbus Ohio. The trip was so fun, it's still worth talking about!

If you remember I mentioned meeting two nice ladies at the hotel. It was really fortunate for us because they gave us directions to the area where a lot of the antique booths were concentrated. So we were able to go there first. I think I completely cleaned out one booth from all their vintage linens!

I loved this tower of vintage luggage. What a cute display and wonderful storage!

Terrific architectural pieces perfect to use inside and out.

I just adore old vintage silver!

Tons of great kitchen items.

These large green jars are just fabulous!

This quaint and homey booth reminded me of grandma's farmhouse.

Here are a few things most people don't blog about when talking about a fair. But it part of the experience!

They had a few vendor booths. We got some yummy Smuckers sugar-free jelly, hand lotion, eye drops, and my favorite ~ Gorilla Glue! I was also excited about the Country Living cosmetic bag. I had to fill out a short questionnaire to receive it, but it was not a big deal and I always need a makeup bag!

I think the best was the doggie dish. Not because dear Sunny needs a new dish, but because Iams donated a $1.00 to an animal shelter for each coupon turned in at their booth. We got the coupons in our entrance packets. And EVERYONE was turning them in. Lots of animal lovers at the Country Living Fair!

Would I go again? ABSOLUTELY! I was able to shop the fair in one day. But missed a few seminars because we got caught up shopping at the antique malls (I'll post about them soon). So next time, I'm planning on staying another day. Between the Fair and the local antiques, I was in Vintage Heaven!


  1. I love your Fair post! Those big green jars? Were they antiques or ? Either way, beautiful. The stack of vtg luggage..oh my.

  2. Ohio just seems to be such a happening place when it comes to country cottage decor and flea market events. It appears I need to add it to my list of places I want to visit, thanks for sharing all the nice photos, tami

  3. I would love to have those big green jars for lovely storage! You've gotten me so excited about the CL Fair - I'm going to check out the schedule for next year and hope to plan a trip around it, if it occurs anywhere near here.

  4. Hi Holly! What a fun visit to your blog and I am happy to announce that you won my blog giveaway for the Marie Antoinette Soldered Charm Bracelet! Come visit my blog! ~ xoxo ~ Joy

  5. I was drooling looking at these photos. So many great items, so much I would love to have. I wish we had events like this here in Maine, but we are sort of way up there, and mostly rural. Maybe a road trip is in order? Hugs, Kathleen
